SIAT grading scale (recommended)

Note: Instructors may select to use a different scale. Students are responsible for checking syllabus or with instructor. Percentage % grades below are only suggested conversions for those who don't already have a grading scale in place.

SIAT courses use the following grading scale. The definitions are to help students understand how instructors interpret performance in each grade category. The student is awarded a final grade at the end of the semester for each credit course and each grade will appear on the student's record as a letter grade and numerical equivalent as follows.
