A grading scheme provides a set of criteria by which to evaluate the achievement of your students with respect to either an entire course or with respect to a give assignment in a course. Grading schemes convert an assigned percentage range (e.g., 94%-100%) to a letter grade (i.e., A, A-, B+, B, B-, etc.).
This guide is designed to address three related topics:
(1) What a grading scheme is, as well as how to create, manipulate, enable, and disable a grading scheme.
(2) What Boston College’s default grading scheme is and how to interact with it.
(3) How grades look both to instructors and students when a grading scheme is enabled or disabled.
