WSU Grading Standards

The grading follows WSU standards:
A: Outstanding achievement-awarded only for the highest accomplishment
B: Praiseworthy performance-above average in most respects
C: Satisfactory performance-work meets the standards for competency
D: Minimally passing-effort and achievement less than satisfactory.

Assignment of Grades

All grades will be assigned on a holistic basis (A, B, C, etc). However, when points are averaged to calculate final course grades, they may result in half grades (A-, B+, B-, etc.).
