USC CHEM 322aL/325aL F 2007 2 JUNG/WILLIAMS/ELLERN GRADING There will be three midterm exams (150 points each) and a final exam (200 points). The lecture grade will be based on the two best hour exams and the final exam. The point distribution between lecture and lab will be: Lecture 500 Lab 200 Maximum 700 To receive a passing grade, satisfactory work must be done in both the lab and the lecture portions of the course. A separate laboratory syllabus will be issued. We try to be as fair, accurate, and fast as possible when grading exams, but we understand that we make mistakes. We are relying on you carefully to review your graded exams with the posted key and bring any grading errors to our attention. Requests must be submitted by the second Friday following the exam. EXAMINATION SCHEDULE Midterm exams will be given at 3:30 PM on the following dates: September 26 October 24 November 28 Students must take at least two of the three midterms and the final. Make-up examinations for the midterms will not be given under any circumstances since any one of the three can be dropped. If you cannot take at least two of the midterm exams, you will receive a score of zero for the second missed exam. The final exam is on Thursday, December 13, 8-10 AM. The final will not be given at any other time. DROP DATES AND INCOMPLETE GRADES Friday, September 14 is the last day to drop this course without a mark of W. Friday, November 16 is the last day to drop this course with a grade of W. The mark of INcomplete may only be given to a student who is doing passing work through November 16 and is unable to complete the course due to serious illness or other documented emergency occurring after that date. An INcomplete must be completed by taking the missed final at a regular course offering within one year. There will be no special make-up exams. USC CHEM 322aL/325aL F 2007 3 JUNG/WILLIAMS/ELLERN HOMEWORK AND PRACTICE EXAMS While the homework will not be collected or graded, it is strongly recommended that you work as many questions as possible. The homework is a vehicle for study, perhaps the primary vehicle, and might be the source of an exam question. On Wednesdays on which there is not a graded exam or lab quiz, we will administer a practice exam. Although these will not be scored, they present an excellent opportunity for you to check your progress. ACADEMIC INTEGRITY It is expected that all students will follow the USC code of ethics. Cheating on an examination and changing the answers of a returned exam are serious violations that will result in a grade of F for the course. We monitor these issues in a variety of ways, including photocopying exams before and after grading.
