Grades are all Pass/Redo?

  • Yes, all assignments are either Pass, or Redo until passed

There's no attendance policy?

  • I do not keep attendance records; the only record I have is the dates of your completed assignments.

Scoring, Rubric, and Rewrites

  • If you need to fix/ rewrite an assignment, you MUST turn in the previous attempt with the fixed new one.
  • Most assignments in the course are passable with only one or two errors of the assignment's rubric. More than two serious errors would need a rewrite to fix the errors.
