Max Points Toward Final Grade
The chapter quizzes are closed book, closed notes tests.
There are 4 chapter quizzes.
The final grade for quizzes is determined by computing the average quiz score then taking 30%
Assuming an average score of 85 the final grade would be computed as 85 X .30 = 25.5
Group Company Audit Project
The group project will be graded at the end of the semester. The Final grade will be
computed against the criteria outlined in the Group Project Description attached
to the syllabus. The final grade is derived from the content and organization of the
final group written company audit (details are outlined in Group Project Description
under the requirements section)
All team members will receive the same final grade. This is based on the assumption
that each team member make an equal and balanced contribution during the semester.
