Sample Syllabus Statement on Specs Grading

Sample Syllabus Statement on Specs Grading

“The grading for this course is different from other courses in that you are graded by the ‘bundle’ that you have committed to accomplish for the associated grade. If you fail to complete that bundle, you will move to the next lower bundle where you have completed those responsibilities. That means that if you do not want to complete the Clinical Case Study Project or the Service Delivery Project, you do not have to do it and you will not receive an F for that assignment. The bundle that you complete is up to you, however as the grades increase, so do the responsibilities and your time directed towards achieving that bundle. You will need to decide which bundle and grade that you want to achieve and I will ask you for a decision and commitment by 9/3/14. Please note your class activities, quizzes, and projects will not be judged based on your effort. You are responsible for choosing your grade/bundle for this course and meeting the performance expectations associated with that grade.” – Dr. Erin Lundblom, CSD 1231
