Grading Is As Follows:
Exam 50 Exams must be taken on the assigned date; otherwise a grade of zero will be assigned. Any exception to this policy must be the result of a documented emergency or prior arrangement with the instructor. There will be no exceptions to this rule!! NO EXCEPTIONS!! ALL MAKEUP EXAMS must be taken prior to the scheduled exam date. This must be pre-arranged with the instructor. LAST MINUTE arrangments are not acceptable.
Assignments & Projects 30 Project and Assignments: All Assignments and Projects Must be turned in ON TIME. You will not get any points for your program assignment if your Program does not compile.
Attendance & Labs 20 Attendance: We will strictly follow the college attendance policy. You may NOT be absent for more than 10% of the time. Three tardies (more than 20 minutes or more is tardy) equal one absence. More than 10% absentee means you will automatically be withdrawn from the class. You will recieve a "WF" if it is past the withdrawal deadline. "WF" is the equivalent of an "F" and designates a failure. This is a hard and fast rule. Any absences must be documented (i.e. Doctor's excuse, phone number of Doctor caring for sick relative) to be excused. Lab work: All Lab work MUST be completed! If you miss a lab (class), you must turn in missed labwork (on disk or other media) to the instructor for full credit. This is your responsibility throughout the semester. It is not the responsibility of the instructor to advise you of missed work during the term or on the last week of the term.
