Grades

A typical set of grade criteria for classes using the LR:

You must complete all assigned work to earn credit for this course.
Your Learning Record will provide a much richer and clearer picture of your learning, but we do need to provide the University with a grade. What do grades represent in this class?

A

Represents outstanding engagement in all course activities; all assigned work completed, with very high quality in all work produced for the course. Evidence of significant development across the five dimensions of learning. The Learning Record at this level demonstrates activity that goes significantly beyond the required course work in one or more course strands.

B

Represents excellent engagement in all course activities; all assigned work completed, with consistently high quality in course work. Evidence of marked development across the five dimensions of learning.

C

Represents good engagement in all course activities; all assigned work completed, with generally good quality overall in course work. Evidence of some development across the five dimensions of learning.

D

Represents uneven engagement in course activities; some gaps in assigned work completed, with inconsistent quality in course work. Evidence of development across the five dimensions of learning is partial or unclear.

F

Represents minimal engagement in course activities; serious gaps in assigned work completed, or very low quality in course work. Evidence of development is not available.
