 Attendance:
Seven absences results in withdrawal from the course. A late is one third of an absence.
Thus any combination of absences and lates that adds to seven will result in withdrawal.
For example, twentyone lates would result in withdrawal.
 No betelnut in class nor on campus except in the cultural huts.
No spitting over the balcony!
 Quizzes are given every Friday that there is not a test.
Quizzes and tests can and do occur on a Wednesday wherein Friday is a holiday.
 Grading policy:
Homework is worth 1 to 3 points.
Quizzes are worth on the order of 5 to 10 points each.
Tests are worth on the order of 20 points.
The midterm is worth roughly 40 points.
The final is worth up to roughly 60 points.
The term as a whole will generate some 200 plus points.
Grading is based on the standard College policy: Obtain 90% of the points or more to
obtain an A, 80% to 89% for a B, and so forth.
Points map to student learning outcomes via questions on publicly published
quizzes, tests, and examinations wherein each question can be linked back
to a course or program learning outcome.

 Academic Honesty Policy: Cheating on an assignment, quiz, test, midterm, or final will result in a score of zero for that assignment, quiz, or examination. Due to our cramped quarters, the course operates by necessity on a system of personal integrity and honor.
 Course student learning outcomes assessment: Based on item analysis of final examination aligned to the outline. During term student assessment occurs at the end of each week, see above.
