The grade will be determined as described below. No bonus work, make-up work, dropped scores, or other means of raising your grade should be expected. At the end of the semester, it is possible that grades may be curved, but a curve should not be expected.
Assignments and projects must be turned in on time. Each minute late will result in a deduction of 1 point. It is your responsibility to upload your work early enough to avoid possible problems uploading to WebCT. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have submitted the correct items.
Exams must be taken on time. Exceptions require advance approval by the instructor. It is up to the instructor to determine whether an exception will be made, and will depend largely on proof of extraordinary circumstances. Otherwise, missed exams will be recorded as a zero.
