Research has shown a cause and effect relationship between attendance and college success. Missing a days lecture can cause you to possibly drop a letter grade on tests.
1. A student with more than 5 absenses may be dropped from class.
2. Tardiness - Being tardy for class more than one time during a test cycle, will result in 1 point being deducted from your next test, for each time you are tardy.
|Determination of Final Grade||
Chapter Tests-50%, Quizzes/homework/labs-25% Final Exam-25%
1.You will have 5 Tests and a Final Exam in this class. All tests and the exam are taken in class on a specified day. There are "NO MAKEUP OR RETAKES".. If you miss "ONE" Test, your final exam grade will count as this missing test grade (in other words, your final will count twice). If you miss more than one test, you will receive a zero for each additional test you miss. If you take all of your tests and do not miss any of them, then you have the option of replacing your lowest test grade with your final exam grade. If you are involved in Academic Dishonesty, you will NOT be allowed to replace the zero you received with your final exam grade.
2. Homework must be completed on time, 15 PTS will be deducted each class day late , for two class days. Homework will not be accepted more than two class days late.
