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. Writing0 - 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 Solving5 - 20% Homework assignments Skill Demonstrations: All skill-based and physical demonstrations used for assessment purposes including skill performance exams. Skill Demonstrations0 - 0% None Exams: All forms of formal testing, other than skill performance exams. Exams80 - 95% Multiple choice, Free response exams, quizzes Other: Includes any assessment tools that do not logically fit into the above categories. Other Category0 - 0% None
