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 noncomputational problem solving skills.  Problem Solving 5  20% 
Problem sets  
Skill Demonstrations: All skillbased and physical demonstrations used for assessment purposes including skill performance exams.  Skill Demonstrations 5  10% 
Projects  
Exams: All forms of formal testing, other than skill performance exams.  Exams 70  85% 
Objective examinations (multiple choice, true false, matching, completion, etc.), Quizzes, Midterm and Final  
Other: Includes any assessment tools that do not logically fit into the above categories.  Other Category 0  0%
