**15. Course of Studies: Summary**

Okay, you've seen this once, but it doesn't hurt to take a look at it one more time.

Your final grade in this class is based on the following forms of assessment:

**Discussion**: ten (10) assignments, 20 points each, 200 points total**Assignments****Quizzes**: ten (10) online quizzes, 30 points each, 300 points total**Exams**: four (4) online exams, 100 points each, 400 points total**Final Exam**: one (1) exam, 100 points, 100 points total

You can earn a maximum of 1000 points in this class. In addition, there are
200 extra credit points built into the assignments in the course to accomodate
different learning styles. These are the only points available for extra credit.
Realistically, you should figure out which mix of quizzes, exams, discussion
questions and/or extra credit assignments you want to do to earn 900 points
or more (to get an A in the course). If you only want to make a B or C, then
figure out how many assignments you need to complete to earn the minimum number
of points for those grades. **You do not need to complete all of the work**.
You just need to complete enough work to make that grade that you desire. If
you work hard and earn 900 points before the end of the semester, you may finish
the course early!

Grading is based on the following scale:

- A = 900 points and above
- B = 800 - 899 points
- C = 700 - 799 points
- D = 600 - 699 points
- F = 0 - 599 points
