HOW I GRADE. Fundamental Assumption: Any item to be graded can best be graded on a 4-point scale: 0 = assignment not done 1 = assignment done, but clearly incorrect 2 = assignment done, but only partially correct 3 = assignment done, and clearly correct Presumably, 0s, 1s, and 3s are clearly identifiable; anything not clearly identifiable is a 2.


For multiple-part items, each part can be graded on this scale, so, e.g., a programming project that requires a problem definition, a top-down design, documented code, and annotated output might be graded as follows: Or, e.g., a HW assignment with 10 problems could have each problem graded on the 0 1 2 3 scale, for a total of 30 points. Or, e.g., a HW assignment one of whose problems has 2 parts: Each part could be graded on the 0 1 2 3 scale. Undergraduate Grading Scheme: For example, to take the 42-point programming project above, I would use the following letter-grade equivalents (T = 42): Graduate Grading Scheme: Where n = T/3:

From this distance, he is strangely handsome, well proportioned, puts you in mind of a sea captain: Alan Hale from “Gilligan’s Island,” say, had Hale been slimmer, richer, more self-confident.
