Your daily reading assignments are based on a scale of 1-5 as it says in the syllabus.
When I am grading your assignments, I am looking for clarity and presentation. Answers should provide great detail. For example, an exact date is better than a century (Such as The Civil War occurred from 1861-1865 rather than in the 19th century).
For five full points you want to answer each question with great care and great detail.
A score of 5 means that your answer is free of typos, grammar errors and sloppiness. It also means that your answer illustrates a sophisticated understanding of the material and presents the information with great detail. A score of 5 is considered an A.
A score of 4 means that your answer may have a few typos or grammar issues. It shows that you have shown great detail in most of the answers. A score of 4 is considered a B.
A score of 3 means that your answer may have a number of typos, grammar errors or some sloppiness. It also means that you haven’t provided the greatest amount of detail and have provided the minimum about of information to pass. A score of 3 is considered a C.
A score of 2 means that your answer has many typos or grammar errors or sloppiness. It also means that you have provided limited detail or offered very short answers. You may have missed a question or two. A score of 2 is considered a D.
A score of 1 is rare and means that your answer has a grave amount of errors or you have not answered some of the questions or you may have provided only a sentence or two for an answer.
Your final score is based on an average of your scores rather than a total. I will take out the last two.
