Classes with no final or paper...

anyone have classes that are graded strangley.  OBviously a test or paper isn't odd.  Im in a 3 credit class, that is curved, half the grade is participation and half is on a 7 minute argument.  I have a hard time believing that 7 minutes accounts for a credit and a half of a grade.  Not to mention there is a severe lack of grading criteria.  Next semester, I'm taking classes with finals, then I at least know what I have to do.

Sounds great if it's uncurved. If there's a curve, I'd avoid it like the plague. Nothing worse than competing with the future moot court final 4 for the single A in a small class.
