Interpreting grades

The grading policies are explained on the syllabus. Grading is part of the way I communicate with you about your learning in the course, but it is only one part: please read my comments on your written work, and please come talk to me anytime about how the course is going. In any case, this picture may help to interpret the numerical scores I use to mark your work:

The aim of this policy is to match the system Rutgers uses to calculate your GPA from letter grades as closely as possible.
