I will use a 4 point scale to grade each of your work. It is somewhat similar to the GPA scale. At the end of the course I will compute a weighted average of all your work and then covert the number into a letter grade.
The following table shows how to interpret a number grade and how I will compute your final grade at the end of the course. E.g. a number grade of 3.2 is a B+, a number grade of 3.4 is a weak A+.
Letter Scale US test score scale A+ 4.0 Excellent 100.00 A 3.8 Very good 92.00 A- 3.5 Almost very good 89.00 B+ 3.1 Pretty good 85.00 B 2.8 Good 82.00 B- 2.5 Reasonably good 79.00 C+ 2.1 Fair 75.00 C 1.8 Rather weak / minim. 72.00 C- 1.5 Minimalist / Weak 69.00 D+ 1.1 Very weak 65.00 D 0.8 Pass 62.00 F 0.7 Fail 61.00
