Biology 1234 consists of both a lecture and laboratory component. The following standard scale will be used when reporting your composite grade: 90-100%=A, 80-89%=B, 70-79%=C, 60-69%=D, 0-59%=F.
Final Course Grade = (Lecture Grade x 75%) + (Laboratory Grade x 25%)
***See Laboratory Syllabus for laboratory grading policy***
Your lecture grade will be determined by FIVE exams (the last of which is your cumulative final exam) and two D2L reading assignments. Each in-semester exams will be worth 50-points and the final will be 100. The D2L assignments will cumulatively be worth 20 points (10 points each). Your exams will cover both specific and conceptual questions. An 882-E Scantron and #2 pencils are required for exams. If extra credit is assigned, it will be made available to everyone in the class.
Lecture Grade = (Number of correct answers on all exams and D2L Assignments / 320)
THERE WILL BE NO INDIVIDUAL EXTRA CREDIT, SO DO NOT ASK.
Attendance is not required, but it is recommended. Exam make-ups are allowed for university sanctioned absences or other circumstances deemed legitimate by Dr. Watson. If you must miss an EXAM day, contact Dr. Watson prior to the absence.
