Digital Media Regrading Policy

Suppose in Digital Media, you submit an assignment or complete a rubric for a particular assignment and you know you can do better and show your mastery of the project.

You can improve your Digital Media grade and show mastery according to the following schedule:

Maximum Score Requirements Completed by
A+ = 100% meets all rubric requirements grading deadline
B+ =   89% REVISED work meets all rubric requirements within 1 calendar week after the grading deadline
C+ =   79% REVISED work meets all rubric requirements within 2 weeks after the grading deadline
D+ =   69% REVISED work meets all rubric requirements within 3 weeks after the grading deadline
F =     59% REVISED work meets all rubric requirements within 4 weeks or more after the grading deadline

Note:

  1. A “grading deadline” is defined as the period of time when the assignment is actually graded which can be later than the completion deadline. For example, an assignment could be scheduled to be completed by January 31st so it’s ready for the Mid-Year Exhibition, but the grading deadline could be sometime in February.
  2. You can make changes to your website productions at any time  - regardless if you want a regrade or not because perhaps you want the world to see a more polished project from you.

What you need to do to get an assignment regraded:

  1. Fix whatever you need to fix - refer to the assignment sheet and requirements.
  2. Make sure that the assignment is updated on your website or submitted into the drop box depending upon the assignment
  3. For online Self-Grade rubrics, edit the Self-Grade rubric then email me ONLY ONCE so I know to check the modified self-grade rubric.
  4. For assignments submitted late to drop box folders, email me with specifics so I know what to check in the late folders.

Note that if you get more than 89% on an assignment, then regrading for that assignment is not necessary because the highest possible regrade % you can get is 89%.

 

The point of all of this is that you should be given the chance to fix problems. The scaled grading rewards students who refer to and meet all rubric requirements prior to the grading deadline.
