The info on the assessment sheet is NOT a grading scale. This course follows the same grading scale as all others (10 point scale).
Holistic scoring works like this: If your paper is an A paper, it will be given a 95%. If your paper is a B paper, it gets 85%, and so forth according to the assessment sheet. Unless you make revisions later (to earn extra points) OR turn in work late (which will result in a deduction), there are no other percentage scores on papers.
This means EVERYONE’s paper that falls into a grade range, gets that “on-the-fives” grade, not that the grading scale itself is altered in any way.
Hope that clears up the misinformation going around. If you have more questions, ask Mrs. C in class.
