Lifelong learning courses that already employ a grading system such as Quantitative Reasoning and Collaborative Learning will continue to use this system.

They will not do your work for you, but they can help you focus and develop your ideas, review your drafts, and polish your writing.In certain SCPS courses in the Lifelong Learning Area of the BA curriculum, instructors regularly use the pass/fail grading system.However, SCPS also offers students the opportunity in several of these courses to select a "Grading" option where grades A through C- represent passing performance.The course presents a variety of readings, exercises and projects designed to help students develop competence in reflecting on experience, connecting assertions with evidence, engaging the ideas of others and bringing multiple perspectives to bear on complex issues.In addition, several modules require that you submit a set of written Exercises and all modules require that you participate in a Discussion Forum.The estimated time to complete each module is one week.The following table outlines the course: Evidence of one of these elements equates with a C; evidence of two with a B: and evidence of three with an A.The faculty member and the individual student together decide which system will best promote the student's learning in that particular course.With no exceptions, a student must obtain permission from the instructor to use the grade option by the beginning of the third week of the quarter.All Lifelong Learning courses offered by the School for Continuing and Professional Studies emphasize overarching skills in three categories: Learning from Experience; Inquiry; and Decision-making.The assignments listed above track with these categories as follows: You do not have to purchase a textbook for this course.
