Final Grades will be assigned as percentage of points achieved:

                         A (940-1000) A- (900-939) 

B+ (880-899)    B (840-879)  B- (800-839)

D+  (680-699)   D  (640-679) D- (600-639) 

F  < 599

Note: In order to achieve a B- without completing any optional assignments, your performance on the required assignments will have to be consistently perfect or near perfect. If your target is a better grade, then give serious thought to what optional assignments you will find significant and valuable to you and promote your learning about what it means to be a competent communicator in our present society. The responsibility for getting optional assignments in on time is yours.   I will not remind you of or ask you for your assignments--you will take the initiative to get them to me on the dates you promised. Make sure you keep a copy of your contract and reivew it regularly. I suggest you mark your assignment due dates on the course calendar.


Note: Attendance points will be earned as follows: 0-1 Absence = 50 points; 2 Absences = 40 points; 3 Absences = 25 points; > 4 Absences = 0 points
