Grading and Examination Practice
Final Grade . The grade will be weighted
Recitation grade 25%
Laboratory grade 25%
Lecture Examinations 25%
Final examination 25%
Final letter grades for the course will be assigned by a course committee on the same basis for students in all sections.
This grade will be based on the student's average score on recitation quizzes
and may also include the instructor's evaluation of the student's class
The recitation instructor keeps the student's records and has the responsibility for reporting the final
Laboratory Grade. The laboratory instructor is responsible for determining the laboratory grade and will explain the basis for it to you.
Lecture Examinations. There will be two uniform lecture examinations given to students in all sections. These include questions based on the reading assignments, the lectures, and the laboratory experiments. See the other page for the dates of these examinations.
This examination will cover the assignments of the entire semester including
laboratory work. There are no exemptions from the final examination.
Examinations. If you should become ill during any examination
and feel that you are
unable to complete it, notify a proctor immediately, hand in your paper, and see your physician. Your paper will not be graded and you will be considered absent from the examination. If you remain until the end of the exam, your paper will be graded and your grade will not be changed by a later claim of illness.
Absence from Examinations.
No make-up examinations are given to students who are absent from the lecture
examinations. Students who miss one of the examinations with a valid
excuse will be assigned a score for the examination missed on the basis of
their performance on the other exam and on the final exam. The absence
must be justified to the recitation instructor as soon as possible. A
grade of zero will be given for unexcused absences from examinations.
In the event of absence from the final examination you will need to apply to the Office of Academic Advisement (3207 B) for permission to take the make-up final examination given early in the following semester.
