I will award grades in this course according to the University of Minnesota's Uniform Grading Policy:
A--achievement that is outstanding relative to the level necessary to meet course requirementsI will also award pluses and minuses, with the highest possible grade being an "A." Grades of "A," "B," "C" (including "C-") may be applied to a Graduate School degree program.
I will assign an "I" (Incomplete) only when a written agreement exists specifying when the work of the course will be completed. In most cases, the deadline for completion will be the beginning of the following semester; only in extraordinary circumstances will the deadline extend beyond this. If a student receiving an incomplete has not successfully completed the work of the course after one year, I will replace the "I" with a final A-F grade.
Grades will be assigned in terms of a percentage of possible points according to the following standards:
I may choose to grade more generously, but I will not raise my standards above these. If at any time you have concerns about your grade, please do not hesitate to contact me. All grades are based on the quality of work submitted, not on hours of effort.
