TESTS: 6 tests are given as shown on this Course Syllabus Link for 100 points each and a comprehensive final for 200 points. No make-up tests may be taken. A missed test is a zero test score and late assignments result in loss of points. Tests are graded and returned as soon as possible but certainly less than a week. Two 100% correct Gateway Properties Tests are required to pass this class.
GRADES AND THE GRADE SCALE: The final grade is based on the 800 points above plus any extra credit class or notebook points. This sum is divided by 8 for an average which is scaled to the following course grade:
- A for 90 points or above,
- B for 80 to 89 points,
- C for 70 to 79 points,
- D for 50 to 69 points, and
- F for under 50 points.
