Otherwise, the make-­‐up, if granted, will result in 10% deduction of the original score. The instructor reserves the right to refuse the request for make-­‐ups if the reason is deemed unjustifiable. 1. Tests: Only one make-­‐up will be given during the term without penalty, provided the request is made beforehand. The make-­‐up must be taken the day after the regular test is given. If you have a compelling reason to take a second make-­‐up, it will result in 20% deduction of the original score no matter what the reason might be. A third make-­‐up will not be given. 2. Vocabulary Quizzes: Only one make-­‐up will be given during the entire session. 3. Pinyin Quizzes/Listening Tests: No make-­‐ups unless there is emergency. Online Assignments: There will be four types of online assignments: pronunciation (OPA), fluency reading (ORF), oral proficiency (OOPA), and listening (Listening Homework). These assignments can be accessed at : Hsieh Laoshi’s CHI 506 (Su13). Online assignments one day overdue will be accepted but 5% will be taken off the original score. Assignements more than 2 days overdue will not be graded. Homework Policies: 1. Students who arrive at class without writing the draft for homework to be discusses that day will be considered absent from half (1/2) of a class session (see Attendance below). 2. Written homework is due the next class day after the answers have been discussed in class. 3. No more than two (2) late homework assignments will be accepted; subsequent late assignments will result in a 10% deduction from the score. Homework past due for more than 2 days will not be accepted. If such late homework is accepted vii for compelling reasons, there will be a 20% deduction from the score. 4. All students are strongly encouraged to install a Chinese word processor on their computers. Homework draft written on the computer will be accepted. Final version of the homework must be hand-­‐written. Video Presentation (Group Project): Students who wish to receive bonus points for the final exam can form groups of three to four members and give a video presentation. Details will be made available during Week 3. Attendance Policy: Attendance is Mandatory. 1. Each day’s class will consist of two sessions separated by a 15-­‐minutes break. Being absent from one session is considered one (1) absence. 2. Absence time is counted by the minute. Each accumulated 25 minutes, tardiness, early departure included, is considered 1/3 absence. 3. Each student is allowed a maximum of three absences (1.5 class day or 225 minutes) without penalty. No excuses need to be given for these absences. Each subsequent absence (or 75 minutes) will result in a deduction of 0.5 point from your final average score. No excuses for these subsequent absences will be accepted. 4. Six (6) or more absences, the penalty-­‐free ones included, during the session will cause your semester grade to be lowered by one full grade (e.g., A or A-­‐ will become B). 5. Twelve (12) absences, the penalty-­‐free ones included, will automatically result in an F grade for this course. Scholastic Dishonesty: 1. Receiving answers for homework, exercises, or quizzes/tests from another person, whether that person belongs to the current CHI F506 class or not, is considered an act of scholastic dishonesty, and will be reported to the Office of the Dean of Students even if there is only circumstantial evidence. 2. Students who do not fully disclose their linguistic background in Mandarin Chinese on the first class day will be reported to the Office of the Dean of Students for an investigation of possible scholastic dishonesty. Any dispute between the instructor and the student on this issue will be resolved at the Office of the Dean of Students. viii 3. Any other forms of cheating will be reported to the Office of the Dean of Students. Important Notes: 1. After each of the tests and quizzes has been graded, all students are strong encouraged to visit the instructor during the office hours to discuss the mistakes. All tests will be kept in the department’s office until the end of the following semester. After that, they will be destroyed. 2. Throughout the session, the CHI F506 class-­‐related announcements, materials, or information will be sent out via e-­‐mails or be posted on the Blackboard. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure that such announcements/materials/ information can be received in a timely fashion. 3. Students who must miss a class, a quiz/test or an assignment in order to observe a religious holy day will be given the opportunity to complete the missed work within a reasonable time after the absence and will not be considered absent for that day. However, such a request must be made at least 14 days prior to the religious holy day. 4. Texting in class is prohibited. As a courtesy, students who must leave the classroom before the class is dismissed should ask for permission to do so.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
