Spring Quarter Grading

PLEASE NOTE! For UW Seattle students a final grade will not be posted to your transcripts until you have completed ALL THREE quarters of the capstone series. For autumn & winter quarters you will receive a 'N' grade. This is a placeholder grade that means student performance is satisfactory and the final grade is contingent on completing the course series.

You will be graded as a team based on five assignments; stewardship plan, as-built/final report, client training, poster/presentation and project installation. Each team assignment will be evaluated by the instructors and TA and receive a score reached by consensus. Individual grades for the quarter will be calculated using peer evaluations as outlined on the peer evaluation form in your autumn course packet. The grade distribution is as follows:
