A grade of B (85%) reflects work that meets expectations for doctoral level work. Higher grades are given for work that exceeds expectations and lower grades are given for work that fails to meet expectations. Highlighted areas are those in which improvement is needed. It is possible for you to earn different grades for each category. Your overall grade for the assignment reflects the weighted average of individual grades in each category. Assignments containing plagiarism will earn grades ranging from a deduction in the APA/Grammar section (including a zero on this section) to a grade of zero on the entire assignment.
