Introduction to Ethics
Philosophy 7


online gradebook

You can find out your grade so far in the course by clicking on the online gradebook . You can also see which assignments you are missing (if any). You will need to know the section or ticket number of your class and your class ID# (you can only get this number from me). Let me know immediately if you believe there are any mistakes in the gradebook.

THIS GRADEBOOK IS CURRENTLY NOT FUNCTIONAL! I will look into alternative ways to allow you to access your grade. In the meantime, you can always ask me what your current grade is.
