Notes


Attendance

Class attendance is checked before starting the class. If the student is not present during the attendance check he or she is considered absent. The professor should be notified by the late coming student right after the class so that he or she is not considered absent. Otherwise, he or she is still considered absent even if he or she came late. The rule for the number of absences allowed before a student will get a grade of F remains the same – 5 or more absences will be given an F.


If students are unable to attend the class due to sickness or other justifiable reasons, they should provide genuine medical certificates and other proofs to be submitted to the Academic Affairs as early as possible. As a general rule, any appeals based on medical grounds or other justifiable reasons during the grading period (Weeks 16 & 17) will not be considered.




Participation

Class participation is assessed based on students’ participation during the discussion sessions. Discussion sessions are used to provide interactive discussions with students based on the lectures presented and other questions that students may have regarding previous lectures. Discussion sessions are divided therefore into two parts: the first part consists of discussions based on predetermined discussion questions; the second part consists of discussions based on questions that students may have regarding the previous lectures and the course in general.




The importance of participating in these discussion sessions cannot be overemphasized since this is the only time we can have interactive discussions to enhance the learning process.


Midterm and Final Examination

These examinations will cover all materials covered in the course. Midterm exams will cover all lectures and discussions for the first half of the semester while the final exams will cover all lectures and discussions in the second half of the semester. Guidelines for the exams will be provided as we get closer to the exams. NO MAKE-UP, LATE, OR EARLY EXAMS WILL BE GIVEN as a general policy except in emergencies. Business-related absences (e.g.: job interview or business trip) are not excused. In addition, academic dishonesty will not be tolerated. It can result in an F in an exam or in the course. See University policy on academic dishonesty for more details.
