GRADING CRITERIA:

The rating scale presented below is the basis for assessing work submitted by participants in this course. (Items weighted to a different base/overall maximum score, as a rule, will be composites developed from the below, and/or scaled from it.) 

 

The scale is designed so that consistently good and/or excellent work will score a B+ to an A. Fair to good work will score a C to a B, and marginal work, a D; this accords with the Seminary’s published Grading Criteria. (Please compare Syllabus.)
