Each student will be graded on 3 criteria: attendance, participation and their daily log. Students can not passs the course if they do not turn in a daily log.
Each student is allowed 3 absences for MWF classes and 2 absences for TR classes. Each unexcused absence thereafter will affect the final grade in a negative manner.
For MWF classes, once the student obtains a 4th absence the best grade one may obtain is a B, at the 5th absence--a C, at the 6th absence--a D. If students obtain a 7th absence he/she should drop the class or a grade of F will be received.
For TR classes, once the student obtains a 3rd absence the best grade one may obtain is a B, at the 4th absence--a C, ath the 5th absence--a D. If students obtain a 6th absence, he/she should drop the class or a grade of F will be received.
Any excused absence must be made up or it will remain an absence and will affect the student's final grade in the manner as an unexcused absence.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL A GRADE OF "I" BE ISSUED.
PARTICIPATION GRADE: Each day a student attends class and participates in class activities, they will be given full credit for participation. To receive one's participation grade students must actively participate in the entire class period. Attending, staying for a portion of the class, and then signing out will be treated like an absence.
