COURSE ASSESSMENT:
(Criteria for Grading Lecture)
Methods of Evaluation: Students will be evaluated according to the following:
05 Examinations (Check-Up Examination, Preliminary Examination, Mid-Term Examination,
Semi-Final Examination, and Final Examination);
03 Recitations (Preliminary Recitation; Mid-Term Recitation; and Final Recitation);
10 Quizzes, and;
09 Assignments
The final course grade will be computed according to the following formula:
1. Eighty percent (80%) attendance of better,
2. Seventy five percent (75%) general average based on the grading system as follows:
a. Prelim Grade = (5%)(Assignment) + (10%)(Recitation) + (50%)(Quizzes) + (35%)[(Check-Up
Exam + Prelim Exam)/2]
b. Midterm Grade = [(Prelim Grade) + (TMG)]/2; Where: TMG = (5%)(Assignment) +
(10%)(Recitation) + (50%)(Quizzes) + (35%)(Midterm Exam)
c. Final Grade = [(Midterm Grade) + 2(TFG)/3; Where: TFG = (5%)(Assignment) +
(10%)(Recitation) + (50%)(Quizzes) + (35%)[(S-Final Exam + Final Exam)/2]

(Criteria for Grading Laboratory)
