In

 The
grade
you
are
given,
either
on
an
individual
exam
or
assignment
or
as
your
final
grade,
is
not
the
starting
 point
of
a
negotiation.
It
is
your
grade
unless
a
concrete
error
has
been
made.
Do
not
come
to
see
me
or
the
 TA
 to
 ask
 for
 a
 better
 grade
 because
 you
 want
 one
 or
 you
 "feel
 you
 deserve
 it".
 Come
 only
 if
 you
 can
 document
 a
 specific
 error
 in
 grading
 or
 in
 recording
 your
 scores.
 
 Errors
 can
 certainly
 be
 made
 in
 grading,
 especially
 when
 many
 students
 are
 involved.
 
 But
 keep
 in
 mind
 that
 the
 errors
 can
 be
 made
 either
 in
 your
 favor
or
not.
So
it's
possible
that
if
you
ask
to
have
a
piece
of
work
re‐graded
your
grade
will
go
down
rather
 than
up. Remember
that
the
most
important
characteristic
of
any
grading
scheme
is
that
it
be
fair
to
everyone
in
the
 class.
Keep
this
in
mind
if
you're
thinking
of
asking,
for
example,
for
more
partial
credit
points...
