|Attendance Policy||Research has shown a cause and effect relationship between attendance and college success. You get one "free" absence before your lates/absences start to count against your grade in the Attendance category. After that, each absence deducts 7.5% of your attendance grade. Three lates = one absence. No exceptions. Attendance will be taken at the beginning of each class, a record will be kept, and you will be updated at midterm regarding your progress in this area.|
|Determination of Final Grade||
Midterm Exam: 20%, Final Exam 20%, Attendance 20%, Projects 20%
Attendance/Participation: Attendance for this class is mandatory and does affect class semester grades. You get one "free" absence before your lates/absences start to count against your grade in the Attendance category. After that, each absence deducts 7.5% of your attendance grade. Three lates = one absence. No exceptions. Attendance will be taken at the beginning of each class, a record will be kept, and you will be updated at midterm regarding your progress in this area.
Exams: A series of written exams will be administered over the semester covering reading assigned in lecture. The information is available in the book, but I make a point to further explain it in class, so attendance is mandatory. You are responsible for all information, even if you are absent.
Midterm/Final: Midterm and Final exams will be a comprehensive testing of the subjects that have been covered up until that point.
Projects: Students will be assigned hands on projects to show an ability to record and manipulate MIDI information in all assigned software. Some of these projects must be completed on campus, unless the student has access appropriate software outside of campus.
No projects will be accepted after the due date.
Written Exams: 20%
Final Exam: Final exam/proficiency for this class is held during the week of finals. ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY. Exam will include a written test and/or a “hands-on” proficiency test of Studio Process skills to include signal flow and practical MIDI uses
As this course is a part of a workforce development program, certain additional requirements are expected from students enrolled in the class. These include mandatory attendance, punctuality, courteous and respectful conduct towards everyone in the classroom, and the expectation that a student will apply themselves to the best of their abilities. All of these qualities are to be expected in a professional workplace and are therefore also expected in this class.
|Final Exam Date||May 17, 2011 - 8:00 AM|
