Assessment and Grading

1. Attendance shall be checked regularly. A student is allowed a maximum of 3 absences for the whole semester. Students
shall be given a grade of 5.0 if absences incurred are > 3 before dropping.

2. Laboratory exercises must be submitted on time. 10% deduction per day shall be given to late laboratory exercises
(Sundays and Holidays not included).

3. The grading scale shall be the university’s standard scale. No grade of 4.0 or incomplete will be given. Grades shall be
computed as follows:
Final Grade (FG): 90% Individual Laboratory Grade + 10% Attendance = 100% FG
Group Laboratory Grade (GLG): 15% Lab 1 + 15% Lab 2 + 15% Lab 3 + 35% Lab 4 + 20% Lab 5 = 100% GLG
Individual Laboratory Grade: (Peer Evaluation Factor)*GLG

The UP System Grade equivalent to your percentage grade will follow the table below:

General Average (%) Final grade General Average (%) Final grade

92 – 100 1.00 74 – <78 2.25

88 – <92 1.25 70 – <74 2.50

85 – <88 1.50 65 – <70 2.75

82 – <85 1.75 60 – <65 3.00

78 – <82 2.00 <60 5.00

Academic Dishonesty: Cheating and plagiarism in any form will be penalized with a failing grade
