**Methods of Evaluation/Basis of Grade.**

Writing: Assessment tools that demonstrate writing skill and/or require students to select, organize and explain ideas in writing. | Writing 0 - 0% |
||

None | |||

This is a degree applicable course but assessment tools based on writing are not included because problem solving assessments are more appropriate for this course. | |||

Problem solving: Assessment tools, other than exams, that demonstrate competence in computational or non-computational problem solving skills. | Problem Solving 5 - 20% |
||

Problem sets | |||

Skill Demonstrations: All skill-based and physical demonstrations used for assessment purposes including skill performance exams. | Skill Demonstrations 0 - 0% |
||

None | |||

Exams: All forms of formal testing, other than skill performance exams. | Exams 70 - 95% |
||
