Assessment of
Student Learning:
Student learning will be assessed via exams, homework, and class room
participation.
Late Work/
Make

up
Missed exams must be made up on or before the next class period. In a
rare situation where the exam can not be made up in that time period,
Test Policy:
the student will be given an exam different than that taken by the rest of
the class.

Expectations:
The classroom and laboratory conditions will be conducive to teaching
and student learning. To promote and maintain that environment, all
pagers, cellular phones, and other autonomous means of communication
shall be deactivated durin
g instructional periods. RINGING OF CELL
PHONES DURING CLASS WILL RESULT IN POINTS DEDUCTED FROM

Disabilities Act:
Students with disabilities who need accommodations to achieve course
objectives should file an accommodation application with Learning
Services, Cedar Hall 2063 and provide a written plan of accommodation
to your instructor prior
to the accommodation being provided.
Student Evaluation:
Unit Exams

Exams will be given
every 2 weeks
totaling 30% of your
final grade. Missed exams must be made up on or before the next class
period. In a rare situation where the exam can not
be made up in that
time period, the student will be given an exam
during finals week.
Final Exam

The final exam will be worth 20% of your final grade.
