Explain your grading practices

It is important for students to know how they are going to be graded from the very beginning of the course and throughout. Be transparent about your grading by including an explanation of your approach to grading in the syllabus and include an explanation of how each assignment is graded and how individual grades fits into their overall grade. These approaches give students the information they need to be successful.
