Grading

Especially important in determining the senior thesis grade are the quality of the I.S. Monday manuscript and the performance in the oral exam. Among other considerations are your level of engagement throughout the thesis process, the difficulty of the project, the quality of the notebook, and the caliber of the oral progress report and poster presentation. All considerations are translated into one of the following grades:

  • Honors (outstanding in all regards)
  • Good (above average in all regards)
  • Satisfactory (acceptable overall)
  • No Credit (not acceptable)

Additional College regulations regarding the senior thesis are sent to seniors and will apply. For more details, consult the College Handbook for Independent Study.
