  • 25. Redo policy
    If you get less than a 60% grade on an assignment you may ask for a copy of my booster document.
    The same applies if you get a low score on a test but would require a meeting first.
    Discussion posts can always be edited.
  • 26. Academic honesty
    Your work should be written by you.
    Plagiarism is when you copy without giving credit to the original author.
    Citing sources at the end of a paper is not the same as giving credit.
