Understanding Developmental Math Grade
Understanding your final grade in a developmental mathematics course can be as confusing as the course material. To make it simple, just remember one thing, success means a C or better!
In order to receive an A, B, or C, you must complete all assignments, exams, and required activities. Your final grade will be a weighted average of all of your work, and will be assigned a letter grade as follows:
A 90% or higher,
B 80 – 89%
C 70 – 79%
IP Below 70% with the first three chapters successfully completed*
E Failure to complete at least the first three chapters successfully**
What is an E?
An E means failing. It will be assigned to any student who did not successfully complete at least 3 chapters of Certifications and Tests in their first semester of the class or to any student who does not complete the course in two semesters of work.
What is an IP?
An “IP” means the student did not complete the entire class in one semester but did complete at least the first chapters of the course. An “IP” does not lower the GPA, but rather puts the grade on hold for a semester with no credit generated until the next semester. The student must sign up for the course the next semester. The “IP” will be changed according to the student’s progress in the second semester of taking the class. A student may earn an “IP” only once.
