What we call a ‘soft score’ is given immediately upon completion of the exam. A soft score is the number of questions you got correct on the exam. However, this is not your official course score as other factors are calculated in your final course grade.
All courses have a participation score factored into your final course grade. Your participation score is the average of your best grade on each quiz from your first three attempts. Your participation score is worth 33% of your final grade.
300 level courses and English courses have additional projects that are worth 33% of your grade. You can learn more about these projects on the Sylllabus tab for the course, or in the first lesson of the final chapter of the course.
- If the course you are taking has additional projects, your final exam is worth 33% of your final course grade.
- If the course you are taking does NOT have additional projects, your final exam is worth 67% of your final course grade.
