Questions about grades

Now that you’re starting to get assignments back, you’ll probably have some questions about your grades. As you think about how you’re being evaluated, go back to the J202 grading priorities:
1. Accuracy
2. Lead
3. Structure
4. Clarity
5. Grammar and style

A student in office hours asked me about a rubric to understand what those measures mean when it comes to an assignment. Here’s a rubric you can check out to see how those standards translate to your grade. Just remember that your TA isn’t taking points off or adding on points for doing certain things on the rubric — you have to look at your grade holistically.
