We grade our developmental students as we would grade our traditional  
student.  The only difference is a D is not passing.  They must make  an A, B, or C 
or they have to repeat the course (some try to test out by taking  the 
Accuplacer again if they fail).  We treat them as traditional students  with 
homework, quizzes, exams, projects, etc. that match the skill level for  that class.  
If they choose to skip some HW and fail an exam, they may  still pass the 
class if they perform better on other material.  My thought  is that if they 
cannot pass my class, they probably won't pass an "A" level  class (English, 
history, etc).
