Question

i have a 97% in my summative section. My current grade is sitting at an A with 93%. I
was wondering what my grade would change to if I didn't do a 20 point summative
project.

Why would you even think about not doing the project?

I apologize for my brief response but I get a lot of questions from students asking what happens to their grade if they don't do an assessment; these questions upset me because they show students are focussed on grades not learning and because they illustrate so clearly what is wrong with traditional grading.
