How does grading work at Udacity? For each project you work on, we provide you with everything you need to successfully complete it, including the rubric we use to grade it. Once you've completed the project, and checked it against the rubric, you submit it through our site. A reviewer will use the same rubric to assess your submission. They will evaluate each component and also review your submission. Your project will be given a Meets Specifications grade if you've successfully completed the rubric requirements. If the reviewer determines that one or more items were not met, you will receive a Requires Changes grade. You'll need to make the necessary corrections, then submit again.
