Submission Type: Change
Course Change Information (for course changes only): Change from SU grading to Regular (A thru F) to allow the student to be graded in a manner consistent with their other courses in the social work program. It will also more truly reflect the students performance in their field placement and will give the professor the ability to report in a more concise manner. The course assignments and evaluations are already set up on a 100 point sustem so the change would be relatively seamless.
