Grading and Evaluation:
Telos instructors are tough but charitable graders and always try to keep in mind that this is God’s revealed truth and not just a subject. ‘A’ grades are not dished out ‘ten-a-penny’ as a quaint English phrase has it. If your work deserves an ‘A’ it will get one. But please do not take umbrage if you receive less than you think you deserve. If you think we have made a mistake (it can happen) all you need to do is talk it over with us at a convenient time.

Simpler is better. It is easy to view papers in four parts. For reference, each section of the criteria is worth a maximum of 25 points or 25%. The professor will work according to the following guidelines:
Grading Scale for Calculating GPA
The student should expect to spend about six to eight hours per week on each course. Those who read or type slowly may need to plan for a little more time than this. You will need a computer that can access the Internet at reasonably high speed to download audio/MP3, have an email address that you check faithfully, and the ability to use a word processor such as Word or Open Office. Documents must be stored and sent to TBI in Microsoft Word (.doc) focmat. You will also need to be able to play media files using Windows Media Player, Apple’s Quicktime, or a similar program, or stored/played on an MP3 player.
