Page 22 of 26

15.1 Class Attendance. A significant portion of your learning is dependent on your


participation in, and contribution to the classroom community. You are expected to
be in class, turn in all work on time, and significantly contribute to the classroom
discussion. You should notify me personally in advance regarding all absences.
You may be absent only (due to sickness or extremely unavoidable circumstances),
for a maximum of 22 hours, inclusive of tardiness. All absences after that shall
mean excessive absences which merit a grade of 0.00.
15.2 Assignments. Assignments will be due at the beginning of class unless
otherwise indicated. Assignments turned in after the due date will not be accepted.
There is no provision for make up for any missed assignment.
15.3 Seatwork. No book, no seatwork policy is to be followed for the whole
semester. There is no provision for makeup for any missed seatwork.
15.4 Quizzes and Examinations. You are expected to do your own work on the
exams and are responsible to protect your work from being copied by your
seatmates/classmates. Reference materials may not be used during quizzes and
examinations. Make-up quizzes are given for approved absences only. If you
missed any quiz, you should see me during my consultation hours on the day you
report to our class to schedule the make up quiz. You will lose the chance to take
the special quiz if you fail to take such as scheduled.
Page 23 of 26

15.5 Short Quizzes. Short quizzes are to be administered at the start of classes
(immediately after the Gospel reading). It will usually be in the following format:
True or False; Multiple Choice or Identification for a minimum of 10 points and a
maximum of 20 points, covering immediate past or the next lesson. There is no
provision for missed short quiz. This requirement intends to discipline you in two
ways: one, ensuring that you come prepared for the class and two, practicing
punctuality in attendance.
15.6 Major Exams. There will be three Major Examinations which include a
comprehensive Midterm and Final Exams. You may take a special examination only
if your failure to take such is due to an approved absence, sickness, or extremely
unavoidable circumstances. You are responsible for arranging the schedule with
me. Special major examination is given only within one week after the examination
schedule. In case of conflict in examination schedules, you are required to take the
examination on the same date either immediately before or after the scheduled
time.
15.7 Policy on Scholastic Dishonesty. Acts prohibited by the University for which
discipline may be administered include scholastic dishonesty, including but not
limited to cheating on an examination or quiz, plagiarizing, and unauthorized
collaboration with another in preparing outside work. The academic work you will
Page 24 of 26

submit shall be the result of your thought, research or self-expression. An academic


work is defined as, but not limited to tests, quizzes, whether taken electronically or
on paper; projects, either individual or group; classroom presentations, and
assignments. If you engaged yourself in academic dishonesty, you will be subjected
to a range of disciplinary actions, from a failing grade on an activity in question to
expulsion from the University.
15.8 Textbook. The textbook is an essential reference and learning tool. In order to
succeed in this course, you will need to read this book in preparation for class. You
should bring this book every class meeting as most of the class activities will
require its use.

mode during class hours; the use of cellular phones is prohibited in class unless a
special permission is sought. The use of iPod or similar gadgets during class hours
is also prohibited. The use of translators is strictly prohibited during quizzes and
major examinations. Civility in the classroom is expected of all members of the
class.
15.10 General Concerns. All written requirements should be completed on
appropriate working papers with your name, course/section code, date and type of
course requirement. Documents should have a neat, professional appearance and
Page 25 of 26

be stapled in correct sequential order. All written answers/solutions must be


prepared using correct format, grammar, punctuation and spelling. You must
provide your own supplies, including a non-programmable calculator, for use
whenever necessary. Only black ink pen is allowed.
15.11 Other Concerns Relative to the Class. Any concern that is relevant to the
class should be brought to my attention before it is elevated to a higher authority or
an outside party. This would cover, for instance, complaints directed to me (manner
of teaching, grades, etc.) or to your classmates. Special arrangements requested
due to certain situations (e.g., a student’s disabling condition) may be decided and
acted on a case to case basis.
Other matters not provided in the preceding policies concerning this class maybe
resolved within the bounds of University policy.
