integrity, academic or otherwise.

Course Policies


Attendance


The most successful students attend, arrive on time and
stay the entire class period.


Please show some respect if arriving late.


I don’t take attendance, so I don’t need (or want) to
hear about doctor notes and court dates.


If you miss class, DO NOT ask me what you missed.
Ask your classmates.

11

Course Policies


Attendance


No make
-
ups for ANY reason. Really.


The classroom is the primary source of information. I am
under no obligation to email or post information that is
announced and discussed in class. And I probably
won’t.

Course Policies


TESTS


There are four regular semester tests and one final
exam.


The course grade will include your highest FOUR
test/exam grades.


If you are happy with your grade at the end of four
tests, you do not need to take the final exam (#5).


If you choose to take the final exam it will replace the
lowest score from tests1
-
4.


The optional final exam will replace a MISSED test.

Course Policies


HOMEWORK


Chapter
-
specific graded homework quizzes will be on
Blackboard (or Moodle).


Count as 10% of your final grade.


Quizzes for each chapter are due the evening before
the test for that chapter.


There are 100 total questions.

14

Course Policies


Calculating the grade:


Grades will be calculated as follows: (Tests 90%, Homework 10%)


Final Grade = .90(Test Points/4) + .10(HW score)



EXAMPLE: Assume your grades on tests 1
-
4 are 80, 77, 74 and 84,
and you have earned 95 out of a possible 100 homework points.





Final Grade

= .90[(80+77+74+84)/4) + .10(95)





= .90(78.75) + .10(95)





= 80.4, B
