Study.Com Paper Grading - How harsh?
My son is turning in the first of 4 papers for HR Management tomorrow. He is very nervous about grading - I told him to make sure he pays attention to the rubric and it should be fine. Anyone with experience with's upper level courses with papers/projects?
Here Researching for my son, who has done the following:
Community College: Intro to Philosophy, Fundamentals of IT, English Comp 1
Saylor: Intro to Business, Principles of  Marketing, Corporate Communication
Shmoop: US History 2 (WGU won't accept this)
ALEKS: Int. Algebra, College Algebra Personal Finance, Principles of Finance, HR Management, Global Business, Advanced Operations Management
Straighterline: US History 2, Environmental Science, US History, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, English Comp 2, Principles of Management, Business Law, Business Ethics, Psychology, Organizational Behavior, Accounting 1,Communication, Managerial Accounting, Statistics
Ed4Credit: Managing Information Systems
Sophia: Project Management
WGU: Bachelors in HR Management 

Second son is currently attending Penn Foster for his high school diploma, then on to Ashworth for An Associates in Criminal Justice
I have only submitted one paper, but I think as long as you go by the rubric you should be fine. They gave feedback on each of the categories in the rubric and were pretty specific in their feedback. The grading seemed appropriate to me. If your son has 4 papers even if he does not do great on the first, he can see how they grade and still have three papers to improve on.
They also allow you to resubmit papers also for a better grade, he shouldn't worry about it.
