However, because both review question assignments and exam questions are taken from class notes, regular attendance is usually required for successful course completion. I expect you to take all exams on the dates administered. Unless prior arrangements have been made, make-up exams must be taken within one week of regular exams.

Cell Phone Policy: Cell phones are to remain on for emergency purposes only (Code Purple) and should be set for vibrate mode. Use of your cell phone during an exam will result in the temporary forfeiture of your link to the outside world. EXPLANATION OF GRADING PROCEDURE Review Questions: I will assign a number of review questions at the end of each Thursday‟s lecture. You should turn in your answers to these questions on a Scantron sheet at the beginning of the following Tuesday‟s lecture. I will not accept late assignments, however, I will drop your three lowest review question grades. Your average on these assignments counts as 1/5 of your final average. Exams: I will administer four exams during the semester. This number includes the final exam. Each exam counts as 1/5 of your final average. Letter Grades: Course grades are based on final averages and are assigned according to either Plan I or Plan II, which are outlined below. Plan I is the traditional grading system used by most instructors. Based on final averages, this system is summarized as follows: Final Average Final Grade 90-100 A 80-89 B 70-79 C 60-69 D 0-59 F Plan II is a statistical grading technique based on the mean (average) of final grades. If the class‟s final average falls below 75, I will add sufficient points to each student‟s final average to raise the overall class average to 75. For example, if the class average is 73, I will add two points to each student‟s final average, so 88 will become 90, 72 will become 74, etc. I will then apply the Plan I grading system to these averages.
