There will be no exemptions from section or final exams and the student will not be permitted to keep exams after class exam review.
Make-up policy: Exams must be taken AND homework assigments turned in within 1 week and the maximum grade that can be earned is 75%. There will be no make-up offered for the final exam or for quizzes.
Categories of class work will be weighted in the determination of the final course grade:
Exams - 60%
Quizzes/Assignments - 40%
Student can access their current grade on-line at any time.
During the testing period, the student may take a break, however, no additional time will be allowed for the test. Only one student at a time may leave the testing room. After completion of a major exam, the student will not be allowed to wait for the next class in the laboratory or hallway. The student must either sit quietly in their seat until all students are finished or exit the building.
The instructor will meet with students who do not pass exams. Both parties will develop a plan to gain better understanding of the information covered on the test. The plan may include but not be limited to:
Mandatory remediation sessions exams will be a group event at a date/time set by the instructor. Failure to arrive on time and complete the remediation at the set date/time will result in negative (-10) points for that exam.
Regular attendance is necessary for satisfactory achievement. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the student to attend class. In the event of an unavoidable absence, it is the responsibility of the student to obtain missed lecture notes and arrange for make-up exams.
Each student with a tardy/attendance problem will be addressed on an individual basis with the instructor.
In the event of virtual classes or quarantining due to Covid-19, all rules of attendance will apply. It will be counted as an absence if the student does not log on, does not activate the camera and/or is not dressed and sitting at a desk/table. If the student logs on after the class has started, the student is "late". Proof of illness due to Covid-19 may be required.
