The capstone course was a mess. A passing grade is set at 80% which is reasonable, but students grade assignments in increments of 25%. This basically means that you need to achieve 100% on the final assignment, which is not realistic given the knowledge of the students. The same students that could not come close to completing the assignment are grading other students' assignments. I reviewed numerous assignments, and they were far from complete. The feedback I received didn't align with the requirements of the assignment, and now there is a chance I will have to wait until the next course is available to try it all again. As I mentioned, the capstone course is a mess and should be fixed by the course staff. What a total let down....
