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, twenty-one lates would result in withdrawal.
All absences are initially considered unexcused and counted towards the seven absence limit.
Absences can be excused from the seven absence limit for medical or official education-related travel.
Appropriate documentation is required such as a note from the physician (doctor) or,
in the case of education-related travel,
some form of written or electronic communication from official sponsors of the travel.
No betelnut in class nor on campus except in the cultural huts.
No spitting over the balcony!
Quizzes and tests are given every Friday.
Quizzes and tests can and do occur on a Wednesday wherein Friday is a holiday.
Grading policy:
The number of points and their distribution vary from term to term. Terms tend to contain between 300 and 450 points. No one quiz, test, midterm, nor even the final will have a large impact on your final grade. You have do consistently well across all quizzes, tests and the mini-projects to succeed in this course.
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.
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.
