IN 1.0 - Grades :


SUMMARY/SCOPE
Grades are awarded to students based on their academic performance and achievement in each class they enroll in. The college utilizes a published four-point grading system, and in some instances, a letter grade, to evaluate the student’s level of achievement in meeting course learning outcomes.

DESCRIPTION
The responsibility for evaluating student work and awarding credit if the academic expectations of the course have been completed satisfactorily resides with the faculty. Grading of student work is based on the course learning objectives/outcomes and the methods of criteria of evaluation stated in the course syllabus. Changes made to the Grading Policy and Procedures are reviewed by the Academic Standards Committee who then forward a recommendation to the Instructional Leadership Committee. The Instructional Leadership Committee will review and forward the recommendation(s) to President’s Cabinet for approval.
