CPS 196, Grading
There have been seven assignments given out for student presentations.
There may be a generic assignment and a strategy assignment, this would
yield a maximum of nine assignments based on student presentations.
It is necessary, though not sufficient, to do five assignments to get an
A-. To get an A it is necessary to do six assignments. To make this
more concrete, in addition to the
criteria of number of assignments,
it is necessary to earn 100 points for a B, 150 points for an A-,
and 200 points for an A.
You must also oversee the grading of submissions for your presentation.
You will do this in consultation with Profs. Astrachan and Duvall.
Each submission will be given one of the following grades
- Poor, shows some understanding but reflects
little or minimal effort. This corresponds to a grade of C, or
- Good, shows understanding and a
reasonable attempt at completion though may be flawed in
non-fundamental ways. This corresponds to a grade of B, or
- Very Good, shows understanding, a reasonable
attempt, and although some flaws may be present, there is
something in the submission that indicates a more complete
understanding and more of an effort than does Good.
This corresponds to a grade of A-/B, or
- Splendid, shows real understanding, an
effort to do more than merely do what is asked and has nearly no
flaws. This corresponds to a grade of A, or
- Incredible, is an A+, it represents
above-and-beyond effort and understanding, it earns
Grading should be complete by May 7, 1998
