Tests and other major grades:

Although we may have to adjust as time constraints limit us, I expect three or more tests each six weeks. These tests will be mostly multiple choice in format. In a couple of cases, an essay will be required.

A relatively short project, such as an Excel spreadsheet, may be included each six weeks. When that happens, it will be weighted as the equivalent of 1/2 of a test grade.

Daily Grades and quizzes:

You will be quizzed over nearly all reading assignments. Quizzes will be given on or after the date on which the reading is due.

Class Participation:

The ability to carry on meaningful class discussions is critical in this class, and it's one of the things that I value most highly. Therefore it is an important part of the evaluation process.

As a teacher, it is my function to evaluate student learning and participation. This evaluation is undoubtedly subjective, so I endeavor to error on the side of generosity.
