Grading System

  • Norm-Referenced
    • Assessment in each course will be graded using the Norm-Referenced Grading System. This system ensures that you are graded based on your performance in a specific evaluation compared to the entire group. Therefore, you are not at risk of achieving low grades due to the assessment’s difficulty.
  • Weight Scale & Grading Scale
    • After assessing and evaluating quizzes, assignments, and final exams, instructors will incorporate them into their respective course’s percentage grades based on their weights. For instance, if you are studying the Organizational Leadership course obtaining 83% in the quizzes held throughout the course, 87% in assignment 1, 95% in assignment 2, and 64% in the final proctored exam. Then, the instructor will combine the grades according to the weight of each assessment, as shown in the table below:

      AssignmentPossible Points
      Assignment 150
      Assignment 250
      Proctored Final Exam100

      Your final grade of each course is always rounded up to the nearest whole number. Then, the grade of each course is converted using the grade scale system to its corresponding GPA score on a GPA scale of 4 based on the table below:

      Lastly, each course’s GPA score is multiplied by its corresponding credit hours divided by the academic program’s total credit hours (48 credit hours). The result is rounded to the next Letter Mark. For example, a student who has 3.1 as a calculated GPA score for the program, based on the table above, this score is rounded up to the next Letter Mark, resulting in the student obtaining a Letter Mark B+.
