This course will use a proficiency grading system. All assignments will be scored on a 1-5 rubric. These scores will then be averaged to get an average mark that will be your grade.
This system is designed to be more equitable to students and rewards consistent high scores while not excessively punishing a low mark or missing assignments.
Criteria for the rubric will be provided for individual assignments, but here is the template for assigning marks.
