Grading Policy for PHIL 106: Current Moral and Social Issues, Fall 2010 Your grade in this class will be determined based on performance on three paper assignments. The first paper, which is due October 5 , should be around 3-4 pages and is worth 25% of your overall grade. The second paper, which is due November 5 , should be around 4-5 pages and is worth 35% of your overall grade. The final paper, which is due on the day of the final exam , should be around 5-6 pages and is worth 40% of your overall grade. You will receive a list of potential topics approximately two weeks before each paper is due. If you have a specific topic other than those provided that you would like to write on, you may do so, but please run it by me beforehand. The main criteria that will be used to evaluate your papers are: Clarity and relevance . At every point in the paper, is it clear what the author is claiming, and how the points s/he makes and the examples s/he uses are supposed to support these claims? Concision . Is everything in the paper strictly relevant to the claims the author is trying to make? Does the author make his/her points efficiently? Grammar/spelling
