One aspect of fairness in grading relates to growth. A student who starts out very strong can coast and still might expect to get a high grade without learning anything. A student who starts our very low may learn a lot but is often not given much credit because the final work is still not as good as the work of the lazy student who started out very high. Fairness should be explained in advance.

At this page, I write more ideas on grading.

This page gives a grading rubric you may find helpful.
