Process

The assignments in this course are pass/redo

  • When you finish (PASS) one level of assignments, you can move onto turning in the next level's assignments.
  • If you do not PASS an assignment, the assignment must be redone until passable.

Deadlines

  • There are no deadlines for assignments in the course.
  • However, no level of assignments (see below), can be turned in until the previous ones have obtained a PASS.
  • There is, though, a time limit to the course; the end of semester's last day of class, and I DO NOT accept multiple level's assignments at once .
  • Check the C grade Hard Dates deadlines on the schedule.
  • No assignment can be turned in during Final Exam Week (except the Final exam itself).

Instruction and Extra Help

  • The only deadlines in the course are mine for me; that is, for when I discuss the next assignment in-class.
  • I only give instructions of assignments on the days and times listed in the course schedule.
  • If you cannot come to class on an other day and time than your registered time, you will need to see a Writing Consultant in the Learning Lab.

Graded papers returned by...

  • the same day or by the next class meeting if an assignment is turned in according to the dates on the ghost schedule.
  • up to one week later if an assignment is turned in after the dates on the ghost schedule.

Attendance

  • You can only miss ONE day. (being late or leaving early will constitute a 1/2 day absence)
  • However, do NOT just disappear if you are going to exceed absences; talk to me.
