“A” When given an open-ended problem, a student needs to demonstrate the ability to define the problem, determine the underlying principles that apply, make reasonable assumptions, come up with a solution and then be able to discuss the implications of that solution.
“B” When given a well-defined problem the student can identify the appropriate underlying principles, make reasonable assumptions, and solve the problem.
“C” Given a well-defined problem the student can find the appropriate equations, plug in the numbers and come up with the correct answer most of the time.
“D” Is often unable to solve problems. Can stem from insufficient understanding of the underlying principles and/or the inability to reason through from underlying principles to final solution.
“F” Student has failed to grasp the material, does not demonstrate understanding of the underlying principles and does not demonstrate the reasoning ability necessary to solve problems even when given the appropriate underlying principles. An “F” can also stem from simple failure to come to class, complete assignments, or participate in group work.
