Lecture Exams and Make-Up Exams: There will be three, equally-weighted major exams (including the final exam) that will each be worth 16.67% of your overall grade for the class. The final exam will NOT be comprehensive but will cover all of the material since the previous exam. Exams will usually contain various types of testing formats (i.e. multiple choice, matching, true/false, fill in the blank, listing, drawing/labeling, and short answer). You MUST present a valid university excuse to make up a missed lecture exam. A missed exam should be made up immediately (i.e. before exams are passed back to the class).
Course Grading: The following is a breakdown of your final course grade:
Exam #1 =16.67% Exam #1 = 4%
Exam #2 =16.67% Final Exam = 6%
Final Exam =16.67% Insect Collection=40%
total =50% total =50%
The grading scale used to determine your letter grade for the course is as follows:
A = 90-100%
B = 80-89%
C = 70-79%
D = 60-69%
F = below 60%
