Do you base it on difficulty of the class or a percentage of the actual class cost?

Typically I do 15% of the course registration fee, but I would like to know what's the acceptable standard.

edit: here's a useful link:

Provides the basic outline in the tipping process for college courses

"A special thanks to Dr. Tony (The Palm) Dalrymple for sharing his depth of knowledge about academic tipping. Tony is presently promoting a "tipping pyramid scheme" at the University of Delaware. Those who feel they have benefited by reading this article may send tips to the author in care of The Journal of Irreproducible Results."

The link is hilarious, I especially like the "references"

The fact that some are taking this seriously is even funnier....

If I tip, will they give me a better grade?

I love the references.
