11 Evaluation Model. It sounds complicated. It’s not.

12 Evaluation Model Interpretation: A-Excellent B-Good C-Expected D -Minimal F-Unacceptable M-Missing A A- B+ B B- C+ C C- D+ D D- F M

13 Evaluation Model Letter grades are mapped to the 4.0 scale Compute like you would your GPA (i.e., weighted average) A4.00 A-3.67 B+3.33 B3.00 B-2.67 C+2.33 C2.00 C-1.67 D+1.33 D1.00 D-0.67 F0.00 M- 1.50

14 Evaluation Model Numerically scored course components are mapped to letters based on percentage A [94,  ) A-[90, 94) B+[86, 90) B[82, 86) B-[79, 82) C+[76, 79) C[70, 76) C-[67, 70) D+[64, 67) D[60, 64) D-[57, 60) F (- , 56) Mn/a

15 Evaluation Model Your computed grade – on the 4.0 scale – is mapped to the University’s grading system for your final grade A[3.85, 4.00] A-[3.50, 3.85) B+[3.15, 3.50) B[2.85, 3.15) B-[2.50, 2.85) C+[2.15, 2.50) C[1.85, 2.15) D[1.00, 1.85) F (- , 1.00)

16 Meet your milestones.

17 Exhibit Integrity.
