Grading Guidlines---


40% of your grade

Daily work is anything that is completed in the computer lab. The grade will be based on the following:

Formatting: If you are given specifications for margins, fonts, and point size, style and arrangement of text, you will be graded on how well you followed that. If there are no specifications, then at a minimum, it is expected that you use the default margins.            

Spelling: It is expected that you use a Spell Checker. You will be penalized for spelling errors.                                                     

Typing Errors: Please proofread your work! You will be graded on the accuracy of your typing. This includes the following: 

There should be one space between words.                                                                                                                                            

There is no space before a comma or semicolon.                                                                      

There is one space after a comma or semicolon.                                                                                                                                             

There are two spaces after all punctuation that end sentences. This includes periods question marks and exclamation points.               

There are two spaces after colons.

Grammatical Errors Please proofread! Common grammatical mistakes include: using the wrong form of to (too or two), there (their or they're), its or it's, and so on. A spell checker will not help with this. Take your draft paper to someone to check for you.
