YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR RECORDING YOUR POINTS! You
automatically receive 30 points for being in class every day for your
airshift, assuming that your playlist is completed. If you are absent, you
do not receive points for that day.
The projects on this list represent additional work done outside of
the context of your normal class assignment. This list is not complete. If
you find yourself involved in a proje ct that y ou would like to
receive points for, be sure to check with your advisor.
The points on this list are subject to the quality of the project and
the attitude with which the project was completed.
Your grade in this class will mostly be determined by the points you
earn. Those students who work the hardest and do the best job will
receive the highest grades.
***As the website gets up and running, each hour may have
other responsibilities, such as gathering information that needs
to be put on the site. These responsibilities will be a part of
regular class grades, not additional points. However, if
interested, there may be opportunities for extra points with
regards to helping with the website.***
