grading scales

  1. Hi

    I have been reading here a while and have decided to officially join in. This is a great site.

    I am wondering what most grading scales are like. I have seen some mentioned that are so different than my school, a CC. Just wondering what other schools out there have.

    Here is my current Scale.
    A = 94%
    B = 87%
    C = 80%

    I had a class last semster where bottom line was 85%. If anyone wants to share, think it would be great to compare.

    Have a safe and happpy holiday weekend. I plan on working, cant beat that double time for a poor college student.

    Hi Nontrad1964:

    I also am a product of a Community College. The minimum passing grade for Nursing Student's was a 73% which was equivalent to a C. If you scored a 72% or below you flunked.

    Does anyone else feel a bit intimidated by the grading scale? :chuckle I mean, I think about just how few questions you have to miss in order to get a failing grade. Yikes! I am bound and determined, though, to know my stuff!

    Ours is the same scale as Lisa's...

    and they DON'T round up

    I guess I should feel pretty lucky. We have the traditional 10 point scale. Anything below a 70% is a D, which is failing. They are talking about changing it though, so who knows what it will be later.
