ATTENDANCE POLICY: I take roll in every class. You are expected to attend every class unless you have a legitimate reason. There will not be any points deducted for skipping class. Attending the class benefits you in terms of higher grades and learning experience. Class lectures and the text are to be viewed as complements, not substitutes. GRADING PROCEDURES & POLICIES: The exercises will offer the student the opportunity to integrate many of the concepts presented in class. The exercises will be assigned as the appropriate material is completed in
  3. 3. the delivery, of the course. Each assignment must reflect a student's own work. If it is determined that a student's assignment is not the result of his/her own work, the assignment/project will be given a grade of zero (0). The student is referred to the Indiana University Student Handbook for further clarification of academic dishonesty as it pertains to examinations and assignments. All assignments must be submitted before the final exam in order to receive a passing, grade in the course. The usual turn around time for assignments is about 3-4 days. Students must consult about their assignment grade within one wee from the day they are returned to them. Similarly, students must consult the professor within the next mini-session if they have any questions regarding their course grade from the earlier mini-session. If you decide to withdraw from the course, please do so by officially dropping through the registrar's office, missing the classes does not imply a withdrawal from the course. It means a course grade of F. If you would like to withdraw, please check, with your academic advisor for the last day to withdraw from the mini-course. LATE ASSIGNMENTS: Unless you have an extremely good excuse (acceptable documentation is required, for example, doctor's certificate, letter from parents with their Phone numbers etc), the following policy on turning in homework assignments will be used. A late assignment will loose 20% of the assignment grade per day late. Assignments turned in after the start of the lecture (on the day they are due) will be considered one day late. This is to discourage students doing their homework during the lecture. Try to get your work done early and avoid the rush the night before an assignment is due! EXAMINATION POLICY: If you miss the exam because of an emergency (such as illness, close relative's death), a university-approved absence, or an absence approved in advance by the instructor, you will be given an opportunity to take a makeup during the following week. For all emergencies, you are required to produce an acceptable proof to be considered for a makeup exam. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS. It will be your responsibility to schedule the makeup with the instructor as soon as possible. If you do not take an exam within the following week of the scheduled exam, you will receive a Grade of F for the course. All the special cases will be handled according to the discretion of the professor. MICROLABPOLICIES: IPFW provides networked labs of PC's in Kettler, Neff71,ET 305 and Library. The network provides access to numerous software packages. Ms is an "open lab" concept where you go at your convenience, outside of class, to perform computer "experiments." Your professor normally will NOT be present in the lab. The lab supervisor MAY NOT be able to help you with the assignment. You are expected to work on your own from the detailed notes taken in class. Should problems arise regarding assignments, you should seek clarification from the professor during posted office hours, or schedule an appointment. Clearly, this means you should begin major lab assignments well in advance of their announced due dates.
