Grading Criteria

Writing Assignments: 60%
Take Home Midterm: 20%
Take Home Final: 20%

Grades will be assigned on a standard scale:

A:90 +
B:80-89
C:70-79
D:60-69

Although many aspects of writing are objectively right or wrong, grading in this course is by nature at least partly subjective. If you are dissatisfied with a grade you receive, you must submit your complaint in writing, along with supporting evidence or arguments. I must receive this protest within one week of the date on which I first attempt to return the assignment in class. I will not consider any grade change request that does not fulfill this requirement.

You must rewrite papers that receive a grade lower than a C. If you receive a paper that must be rewritten, the Instructor or TA can provide you with specific feedback to help you improve your writing.
