We recommend that you calculate and monitor your own grade with Excel, using the details about points listed in the course summary table below. Simply add up the points you receive on graded assignments (and optional extra credit assignments), then divide by 1,375. It is your responsibility to know your grade and raise any questions that you may have in a timely manner.Any individual grade appeals must be made within ONE WEEK of the grade being posted. NOTE: Rounding is not automatic for final grades.E.g., a final grade of 89.5 would earn a B+ and doesn’t automatically round up to a 90 for an A-. Grades mightbe adjusted up if there is room for a class curve.
