INDV101 – Language Policies for Spring 2011 Subject to change as needed Page 1 of 12 INDV101 – Mind, Self & Language – Language Course Policies (http://www.u.arizona.edu/~avf/INDV101/policies.pdf ) These policies will be enforced throughout the semester in INDV101, and are incorporated by reference into the course syllabus. If you have any questions or concerns about these policies, please notify the instructor as soon as is reasonably possible. If, at the end of the semester you raise questions or concerns about these policies that you have not discussed with the instructor before, you will not be entitled to accommodation. 1. Grades. 1.1. Grade Philosophy. Your grade in this course is our best assessment of the quality of your work on the required assignments as they are submitted, on time, during this semester. The quality of your work is determined by your adherence to all published or announced assignment requirements (including content, format and submission rules) as well as the extent to which your work demonstrates your mastery of the course concepts. Your grade is a reflection of how well you've demonstrated this mastery, and it is not at all unreasonable for you to lose points on assignments based on your failure to comply with any rules or requirements; or based on errors of any kind in the work you submit. Your grade is substantially negatively affected by tardiness of submission of work, failure to follow format requirements, and/or failure to comply with all published and announced rules of submission for assignments. Your grade is not determined by your willingness to take on extra work beyond course assignments. Your grade is not determined by the amount of time and effort you spend preparing assignments (except insofar as that effort results in your work being of high quality). Your grade is not based upon your previous academic history, nor upon your need to maintain eligibility for scholarships, athletics, or any other external factor. Your mastery of the course concepts is your responsibility. The instructors are here to help and support your efforts, but we are not responsible for your success. 1.2. Course Grades Course grades are determined based strictly on an accumulation of points (and not on a percentage), as outlined in the syllabus. Grade boundaries are interpreted strictly. This means that, all else being equal, 899 points corresponds with a final letter grade of ‘B’, while 900 points corresponds with a final letter grade of ‘A’ (with the proviso that we will round up
