GRADING STANDARDS

GRADING STANDARDS

A = An excellent paper. It offers an effective solution to the problem based on good audience analysis; it ful­fills minor as well as major purposes. Its overall pattern of organization is appropriate; the internal organization of ideas is effective; transitions are smooth. Reader benefits and logic are well developed. The message is well written, interesting, and easy to read. It may show originality in visual impact, reader benefits, details, or word choice.

B = A good paper. It offers an effective solution to the problem. Both the overall pattern of organization and the internal organization are good. Reader benefits and logic are developed adequately. The writing style is clear, concise, and friendly. It may have a few minor mechanical errors or some awkward spots, but basically it is well written and has good visual impact.

C = A satisfactory paper. It offers a solution which is basically acceptable; it uses an acceptable pattern of organization; the writing follows the conventions of standard English and the principles of business writing. There may be minor errors in style, tone, internal organization, or mechanics; reader benefits or logic may not be developed fully.

D = A satisfactory (“C”) paper with a major flaw in one of the following: the solution, organization, tone, or writing style. OR A paper which shows some evidence of attempting to solve the problem, but which has many minor errors in organization, development, word choice, style, tone, and mechanics. None of these alone would necessarily doom the paper; however, together they make the paper unsatisfactory.

F = A poor paper with major flaws in one of the following: the solution, organization, tone, or writing style. OR A paper that violates the facts explicitly given in the problem. OR A paper that is marred by an unacceptable number of errors in organization, development, word choice, style, tone, and mechanics. Minor errors in format (for example, not initialing a memo or signing a letter) lower the paper grade one-third letter. Major errors (for example, using a letter when a memo is needed) will lower the grade one full letter.

Making the same errors on your paper: If you make the same errors your papers (after they have been corrected and graded), you will lose double points. Details will be discussed in class.

Important things to know... Copy your papers: Make a copy of all papers to use during class discussion since your original will have been turned in to the instructor.

 To ensure that every student, current and future, who takes courses in the Boccardo Business Center, has the opportunity to experience an environment that is safe, attractive, and otherwise conducive to learning, the College of Business at San José State has established the following policies: 

Eating:

Eating and drinking (except water) are prohibited in the Boccardo Business Center.  Students with food will be asked to leave the building.  Students who disrupt the course by eating and do not leave the building will be referred to the Judicial Affairs Officer of the University. 

Cell Phones:

Students will turn their cell phones off or put them on vibrate mode while in class.  They will not answer their phones in class.  Students whose phones disrupt the course and do not stop when requested by the instructor will be referred to the Judicial Affairs Officer of the University.

In the classroom, faculty allow students to use computers only for class-related activities.  These include activities such as taking notes on the lecture underway, following the lecture on Web-based PowerPoint slides that the instructor has posted, and finding Web sites to which the instructor directs students at the time of the lecture.  Students who use their computers for other activities or who abuse the equipment in any way, at a minimum, will be asked to leave the class and will lose participation points for the day, and, at a maximum, will be referred to the Judicial Affairs Officer of the University for disrupting the course.  (Such referral can lead to suspension from the University.)  Students are urged to report to their instructors computer use that they regard as inappropriate (i.e., used for activities that are not class related).  

Academic Honesty:

Faculty will make every reasonable effort to foster honest academic conduct in their courses.  They will secure examinations and their answers so that students cannot have prior access to them and proctor examinations to prevent students from copying or exchanging information.  They will be on the alert for plagiarism.  Faculty will provide additional information, ideally on the green sheet, about other unacceptable procedures in class work and examinations.  Students who are caught cheating will be reported to the Judicial Affairs Officer of the University, as prescribed by Academic Senate Policy S04-12.

The 7 C’s of Communication

  • Clear: Your messages need to be clear if they are to be effective.
  • Concise:  If you want your messages to be read by busy people, make them brief. Say what you need to say, and say no more (while maintaining goodwill, of course).  Remove all words phrases and sentences that serve no purpose.  You can also eliminate wordiness by substituting one word for wordy, overused expressions.
  • Concrete: You have a choice in your writing to use concrete (specific) or abstract (vague) words.  They both have a place in business writing.  However, concrete items terms are typically mare accurate and, in some cases, more believable.
  • Correct: Correctness in business writing includes proposes spelling, grammar, punctuation, and format.  For spelling, punctuation, grammar, you should keep a dictionary and a writer’s guide at your desk.
  • Coherent:  Messages need to “Hang together.”  Ideas need to flow from on to the next through smooth transitions.  You can achieve this by outlining your messages, writing simple sentences ad focusing each paragraph on one idea.  You can also improve the coherence of your message through parallel structure, connecting words and phrases, and guide posts.
  • Complete:  Check to be sure that you message is complete.  Have you included all the information you need to ensure that the other person can do a complete job or make a reasonable decision?
  • Courteous:  Your message should be positive—building goodwill and focused upon the reader.  Watch gender specific language and always use proper titles.
