Three evaluation areas will determine your final grade – Aerospace Science (40%), Leadership (40%) and wellness (20%). Grades in each area will be further broken down into three distinct categories; Checking for Understanding, Relevant Applications, and Summative Assessments. Checking for Understanding include but are not limited to classroom, drill, and wellness participation. Relevant Applications include but are not limited to proper uniform wear, 30 step evaluations, dressing out for wellness training, physical fitness evaluations, and academic projects.

Grades are determined using the following scale:
