History has shown a correlation between excessive absences and low grades. It is very important that
you attend EVERY class. Regular attendance is expected of all students. Any student absent for over 4
classes for any reason is subject to withdrawal from the course. Leaving before the end of class, break
time, etc., constitutes a full class absence.

Originality and Academic Honesty
Discussion between students and the sharing of ideas is encouraged. However, each student is expected
to use individual effort in the development of a solution for an assignment. Please do your own work. Do
not make your work available to others. Cheating will not be tolerated on tests and will result in an F
grade in the course.


Grades will be based on these scores assigned equal weight:

             Item                     Item Description                          Weight
           Your lowest test score will be weighted one-half of the weight of the other tests.

         No test scores will be dropped. Lowest test score, except last test, is weighted 1/2.

                                                                TAKEN LATE.
 OTHER EXTRA CREDIT             Class participation, etc.       As assigned by the instructor.
To calculate your grade based on partial information use the following formula:
          1. Add all of the tests except the lowest test. Grades are entered as 0 to 100%.
          2. Multiply the result of step 1 by 2
          3. Add the lowest test score to the total from step 2
          4. Divide the result of step 3 by the number of tests time 2 less 1
          5. Example where 3 tests have been taken and the scores are 83, 73 and 90:
                 6. 83 + 90 = 173
                 7. 2 * 173 = 346
                 8. 346 + 73 = 419
                 9. 419 / 5 = 83.8 test average which is a mid range B
          10. for homework your average is Total of All Graded Assignments / Number of Assignments -
              Max score for each assignment is 100 - Homework is graded after the test for that
              material. Each assignment is assigned from 0 to 100.
          11. Compute your average as ( test average times .88 + homework average times .12)
         A = 90 – 100       B = 80 – 89       C = 70 - 79     D = 60 – 69       F = 59 and below.

Late tests

Sometimes unforeseen circumstances pop up and the test cannot be taken at the time of the regular
class meeting. Tests taken after the second class meeting following the test will receive an automatic 10
point deduction per week.

Handing in Homework (HW is due when the class takes the test for that unit. No homework is
accepted after the class takes the test.):

handwritten form.

For Word, Notepad, and Excel you should log in to using your Student ID and

completed assignment for that chapter by attaching it. No message text is required. As the title for
your submission you must put “nn Lastname, Firstname”, substituting your class id # for the nn and using
your actual first and last names.
Taking Optional Extra Credit Quizzes( Must be taken before the class takes the test.):
At on the Content tab there is a folder named Quizzes. Each chapter will have one
quiz. You may take each quiz as many times as you want and the highest grade will count. This will be
extra credit on the test covering that unit. Each quiz may add up to 2 points to the test grade. If your
quiz score is in the 80s or 90s then you get 2 points. Quiz scores of 70s will get 1 point. Lower scores
will not receive extra credit. Extra credit is not available if a test is taken late.
