Some Hard Facts of Life in Biology 101 “Make-up Exams ”: I do not give make-up exams in the traditional sense. If you miss an exam for any reason, you may take a Replacement Exam at the end of the quarter. Replacement exams will cover the same material as the regular exam covered, but may be in a simpler format (i.e., more essay questions, no matching, etc.). They will never be multiple choice or true/false. While I never intentionally make these exams harder than the regular exams, they are, because you will be more distant from the material covered in class. You may take a maximum of one replacement exam (i.e., you may not miss more than one exam). NOTE: If you fail to call me within 24 hours of the time the class takes the regular exam, you will not be offered a Replacement. That means you will fail the class . Deadlines : Reading : Article reports are due on exam days. Four reports will be due at each of the first two exams. These reports must be typed. If you turn in a report which is not typed, it will be returned to you ungraded. You will be able to resubmit the report in proper format, but of course there will be an attendant late deduction.
