Grading Procedures
Absence in excess of 10% of the scheduled class meetings in classes from 1-5 weeks in duration may result in the instructor dropping the student. That is, a student may be dropped after missing one more
class meeting than 10% of the total number of scheduled class meetings.
4. When a student is dropped due to the
attendance policy, the assignment of a
“W” will be based on the drop occurring
before the 14th week for a full semester
class. After the 14th week, no drops are
allowed, and the only grades given will
be: A, B, C, D, F, NP, P. It is the
student’s responsibility to withdraw
formally from classes by the last day to
withdraw with a “W.” Any student who
stops attending a class without officially
dropping it in the Admissions & Records
Office may receive a grade of “F.”

Each student will be actively involved with evaluation and grading in their performance each week. They will be provided a grading scale to be used after each weeks contest. The expectation of each participant is to perform at a level of above average. For this course, above average would be grading a 1.85 score or better based on the grading scale. By adhering to the grading scale provided, the student athlete has an opportunity to improve on a weekly basis. This scale allows the coaches an opportunity to identify strong and weak individual performances. In addition this creates weekly competition at each position and it allows our team to identify the individuals that are performing at a higher level of execution.
