Understand
that the History Department’s requirement that all history courses have a
minimum of 25% of the course grade (the final letter grade) based on writing
means you This example
is from an earlier term, but its basic math reveals why you must do some
writing. This example
from a 1000-point course = 700 points for objective work + 300 points for
specific writing assignments may help:
If you did
this: ·
·
And you Then the
math would show: - C
work (70%) on the objective assignments, then you’d have 70% of 700 points=
490 out of the 1000 – an
**F** - B
work (80%) on the objective assignments, then you’d have 80% of 700 points= 560 out of the 1000
–
**an F** - A
work (90%) on the objective assignments, then you’d have 90% of 700 points= 630 out of the 1000
–
**a low D** - Perfect
work (100%)on the objective assignments, then you’d have 100% of 700
points out of the 1000 –
**a C**
Each example above is just too risky. You must try to write useful, factual
information. |
