||The final mark is a composite of all marks, weighted as
indicated on the course outline.
||It is a criterion-referenced mark. It is not posted on the
WEB site but is typically higher than the adjusted grade.
|Adjustments (Adjusted Grade)
||To obtain a score of relative standing the final mark is
adjusted to allow for a class average in the B+ range (approximately 78 percent).
||This provides one score of Relative Standing. To
limitations rankings are used for grades.
||Final marks are ranked and letter grades assigned
on the basis of rank. (Five percent in the A+ range, seven percent in the
A range, and so on.)
||This explains why some students have higher letter grades
than would normally be warranted by the numerical "adjusted grade."
||The letter grade reflects relative standing, as does the
||Letter Grades are submitted to the Registrar.
||Marks, ranks and letter grades could be somewhat different
for these students, due to snow days, missed assignments, additional
assignments, alternate tests, etc.
||Addresses minor inequities.
||Ranks and letter grades are calculated as a separate class
for all concurrent students.
||This addresses the inequity based on the different tests
given to concurrent students, and any difference in chapter assignments.
