Course grades are assigned by the University at the completion of the course. There are no formal interim grades assigned by the University although we do post marks on the course website after completion of evaluations so that you can assess your performance relative to the class as a whole.
Students will receive numerical grades for all of the evaluations. A grade of 50 percent or better is necessary to pass the evaluations and the course. Final course grades are not based on the statistical analysis of your class (i.e. class mean and standard deviation). Your final grade reflects only your work and you are not competing with your classmates for your grade. As well, please bear in mind that your final grade in this course will be based on your performance, not your potential.
