Assignment of Grades : Based exclusively on performance on 4 midterm exams and a comprehensive final exam. The lowest midterm score will be dropped; a missed midterm exam will count as the dropped score . There will not be an alternate final exam. Grading Policies : In the interest of fairness, all students in the course will take the exams in class at the same time. In almost all cases, make-up exams are not an option. Make-up exams will be administered with prior arrangement only ! Exams will not be administered early or late, nor will exams be proctored by persons not associated with this course, except for official Vanderbilt Univ. sponsored events. Students with disabilities affecting their ability to take exams should get in contact with the Development Center immediately. Please note that students need to make arrangements themselves to take tests in the Development Center at times over-lapping with the in-class exam. Re-grading Policy : If you have a question concerning the grading of any exam, please consult the answer key prior to requesting a regrade. A written description of your complaint, together with the complete exam, must be resubmitted directly to Dr. Broadie in lecture or during office hours. Regrading requests must be made within 1 week of the return of the exam . There will be no exceptions. .
