I will assess your performance in my class with exams and weekly online quizzes, which can be accessed through Blackboard. Weekly online quizzes will help you keep up with the material so that you do not have to “cram” for your exams.

COPIES OF QUESTIONS IN MICROSOFT WORD WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AS PROOF THAT YOU TOOK THE QUIZ. Grade information: I will not give out grade information by phone or by email. If you have questions or issues about your grades, you must come to scheduled office hours. This is to keep your information private. Attendance: You are expected to attend class. I will not go over materials that you have missed during office hours. It is not necessary to email me with the reasons you have missed lectures, and you will not be able to make up the in class quizzes if you miss a lecture. CLASSROOM CONDUCT:
