Harvard Grading System
  • Grades reflect the quality and quantity of a
    student's work submitted throughout the term
    according to the grading standards listed below.
    Undergraduate- and graduate-credit students may
    earn the following grades

7
  • A and A- grades represent work whose superior
    quality indicates a full mastery of the subject
    and, in the case of A, work of extraordinary
    distinction. There is no grade of A.
  • B, B, and B- grades represent work of good to
    very good quality throughout the term however,
    it does not merit special distinction.
  • C, C, and C- grades designate an average command
    of the course material.
  • D, D, and D- grades indicate work that shows a
    deficiency in knowledge of the material.
  • E is a failing grade representing work that
    deserves no credit. An E may also be assigned to
    students who do not submit required work in
    courses from which they have not officially
    withdrawn by the deadline.

Why not to worry
  • Essay 1 represents only 20 of your grade
  • I will definitely take into consideration the
    improvement from paper to paper.
  • Many Essay 1 papers were riddled with the kinds
    of careless errors that we simply dont need to
    repeat.
  • I am considering a radical change for Essay 3
    and will have a class vote thereupon.
