Grading System

At the beginning of the semester, faculty members should inform their students on the criteria for grading in accordance with certain standard established by the College/Academic Unit/Department. Some aspects that can be considered for grading are: periodic examinations; term papers; projects; oral report/presentation; and class participation.  The weight allocation for each aspect is dependent on what needs to be given emphasis by the faculty.

Only duly registered students should be given ratings and this can be double checked through the official class list.  The rating system shall be uniform with an interval of 0.25 where 1.0 is the highest passing grade and 3.0 is the lowest passing grade.  The rating of 5.0 is failure.

The detailed rating system is as follows:
