In-Class/Routine Home Work
graded on the timely completion of their homework and in-class work. Students
who develop time management skills and prioritize responsibilities are most
likely to do well on their work. Criterion for in-class and homework
grading is as follows:
A … given
to those assignments that demonstrate consistently sophisticated and
insightful thinking and application of concepts. The student’s critical
thinking and writing skills and knowledge are immediately apparent. These
assignments are well-written, thoughtful, insightful, and look good
as well (formatted to MLA conventions). Impressive “A” level work all
around, with maybe a couple minor slip-ups.
B … given
to those assignments that demonstrate good understanding and application of
the concepts. These assignments generally lack the consistency and depth of
insight of those graded A, yet are still well-written, thoughtful, and
obviously show the student took the time to present quality work.
C … given
to those assignments that are complete, yet lack full answers or
application of the concepts. These assignments may give the “short” answer
that is accurate or potentially interesting yet fails to provide significant
investigation and depth. A C is also given where the student’s writing lacks
proficient proofreading; errors and or sentence confusion may need
… given to those assignments that reflect little understanding,
comprehension and skill. Most answers and/or writing on these assignments
are altogether too brief to demonstrate insightful thinking. A D may be
assigned to work that is not prepared and that blatantly disregards the
formal requirements of the assignment (in terms of formatting, complete
sentences, fully developed paragraphs, etc.). Grammatical and syntactical
errors may also hinder clarity and coherence at the sentence level.
(not submitted) A
0 is assigned when no work is submitted or the student did not complete a
majority of the assignment.
