Legend for Worksheet
Class Tests
are given during the regular semester.
Final Tests
are offered at the time of the Final Exam. If you are satisfied with your grade on each Class Test, you can exempt the Final Exam. If you wish to try to improve your grade on any or all of the regular semester tests, you may take any or all of the Final Tests. If you do take a Final Test, your test grade for that subject is the average of the Class Test and the Final Test even though your grade on the Final Test might be lower than your grade on the Class Test. If you have provided a written excused absence for a Class Test, you may take the Final Test in that subject as a ``make-up'' test, and that grade is used in the calculation for the Semester Grade Average.
Quiz
grades are drawn from class assignments: homework, paper, discussion list, message boards, and in-class quizzes.
Quiz Average
is determined by adding the three required quiz scores to the highest other seven quiz scores and dividing by ten.
Semester Average
is determined by adding the Class Tests or Test Averages and the Quiz Average (i.e., A-D, above) and dividing by five. Your grade for the course is based upon this average in accordance with the corresponding letter grade in the table given above under the heading of ``Grades'' in ``Class Policies'' in this Syllabus.
