How does Grading Work?
Each week your mentor will give you a rating from 1-5; 5 being the highest and 1 being the lowest.
Each week's ratings will be stand alone. This will give you a guide to where you are with each assignment
At the end of the term, your mentor will rate you as Pass/Fail. This is to show if you have mastered the skills needed in the class. The Pass/Fail is not based on an average of the ratings during the term.
