*GRADING SCALE*

* *

The plus/minus grading scale in this course
will reflect the current University options for assigning fractional quality-point
values between traditional letter grades, as follows:

* *

Grade Quality Points

A 4.00

B+ 3.33

B 3.00

B- 2.67

C+ 2.33

C 2.00

C- 1.67

D+ 1.33

D 1.00

D- .67

F 0.00

The distribution of grades in this course, as
discussed in the primary syllabus, will be determined by corrected average
method, with the current university mean GPA serving as the standard mean for
comparative purposes. Thus, for
example, if the university average GPA were to fall at 2.6, then a PHIL 1030
student exceeding the arithmetic mean score on a particular exercise or exam by
1/3 of the standard deviation for that instrument would receive a B, while a
student whose score fell deficient of the mean by 1/3 of the standard deviation
would receive a C+, and so on.
