    B+   87.5                     Total possible points equals 500 (2 tests @ 100ea + 1@150 +
    A    90                       10 quizzes @ 10ea + homework @25 and tax return @ 25).

Quiz and test questions will be based upon terminology, legal rules, assigned homework problems and
application of tax law to hypothetical problems (many of which will be similar to assigned homework
problems in each chapter).

Make-up exams will be allowed only in extreme cases. Unexcused missed exams result in a score
of zero. Quizzes cannot be made up unless you have a valid University. If you miss a quiz, that
quiz score is zero.

HOMEWORK PROBLEMS: Homework problems will be collected (or checked) on a random basis.
If you do not have your homework problems with you on the appointed day(s) you will not receive
credit – no late hand-ins under any circumstances. You are expected to have problems finished and
with you when you arrive in the classroom. You will receive credit for a valid attempt even if your
answers are wrong.

TESTS AND QUIZZES: Tests and quizzes are based on assigned reading, homework problems and
class discussions. Students who do not adequately prepare in advance usually perform poorly (D or F)
in this class. Those who follow the success formula below usually earn C or better depending on their
levels of intelligence, preparation and participation.

SUCCESS FORMULA: Read all chapters and answer all assigned questions and problems prior to
the class period assigned. Pay close attention in class. Review material thoroughly prior to exams.

Students and Academic Integrity

Baylor University policies require that students, staff, and faculty act in academic
matters with utmost honesty and integrity. It is the responsibility of each student to be
familiar with the Honor Code and other university policies and procedures affecting
academic integrity. Students are also encouraged to consider these suggestions:

• Review each class syllabus for expectations your professor may have regarding course
work and class attendance that go beyond those stated in university policies and
guidelines and the Honor Code.

• Be familiar with the importance of academic integrity in class. Understand how
citations show respect for other scholars.

• Talk with your professor if you are confused about citation practices or other research
standards.

• Make sure you understand not only what counts as plagiarism and cheating, but also
how to avoid engaging in these practices. Manage your time, take notes correctly, and
use the internet appropriately.

• Make sure you understand your professor's guidelines about working with other
students on assignments, receiving assistance from other students on assignments,
citing sources, using notes or exams from previous or other classes, and accessing
information during an examination. If in doubt – ASK YOUR PROFESSOR!

• Understand that penalties can result from dishonest conduct, ranging from failure of
the assignment to immediate expulsion from the university.

For more information see the Baylor University Honor Code on the Academic Integrity
Web page or contact the Office of Academic Integrity at 710-8882 or
