Lecture Attendance & Participation (5%) If I notice excessive absence or lateness during lecture, I will lower your attendance grade. If you answer questions or ask questions, your grade will go up.
Labs (25%) 11 lab activities during the semester. Some of the labs will include a brief lecture or presentation followed by discussion. Most labs will include a computer activity Student should work in pairs on computer activities. Some labs will conclude with an individual online quiz.
Lab Attendance All labs have a participation component that can not be made-up…that is why there is a penalty. Missing 1 lab 2% penalty on your final average. Missing 2 labs 5% total penalty Missing 3 labs 10% total penalty
Making up labs If you are absence from lab, you must still complete the lab activity and the lab quiz on your own. Otherwise, you will receive a zero on the lab. Each lab is worth about 2.4% Entirely missing one lab will result in a 2.4% loss from the zero and a 2% attendance penalty if the absence was not excused (5% total).
Excused Absences If a serious emergency or medical issue arises, students can be excused from lab, i.e., no attendance penalty but you still have to complete the lab on your own. For illness or medical emergencies, students WILL have to show documentation (a doctor's note or equivalent). For family emergencies, funerals, or other serious commitments, student should contact student affairs or the counseling center.
Attendance Policy A student is expected to attend every class and laboratory for which he or she has registered. Be aware of the following penalties: 5% penalty toward final average for excessive absence, lateness, etc. during lecture. In addition: 2% for the first unexcused lab absence, 5% total for the second 10% total for the third. Students will receive a zero on any missed exam (unexcused).
