Your grade for the class is based on performance throughout the semester, not just a final project or exam. As you can see, your grade also counts on your working at being a good member of the class community. We each have different skills and experiences, and we should use them cooperatively and collaboratively.

A significant part of your grade in this class will come from your participation as a citizen, co-creator, and team member: working with your classmates and helping them to make their work the best it can be will help you do well. Grades are not curved; I want everyone to do well (not least because teaching is much more rewarding for me when everyone brings their best to class).
