The section grade S is determined by your section instructor and will be based off a combination of quizzes and/or homework assignments. Your instructor will communicate their policies for this. The first couple of days will be review and there will be three common Prerequisite Diagnostic Quizzes that everyone will take and will count as the prerequisite quiz score.  The review worksheets will be part of the Worksheets grade.   All exams are common-hour exams during the semester. The final is comprehensive.

This class will be using a four point scale grading rubric.  It is not based on a percentage.

The course grade will be converted to a letter grade using the following.
