Data Mining Assignment (optional) (auto-graded)10** * 20% of the grade is based on doing a peer evaluation of randomly assigned peers. 80% of the grade is based on a rubric that each peer will follow to grade your assignment. That means you need to not only do the assignment well but also participate in peer grading and giving feedback to one another.** Points to be added to your total points in the class.

We recommend that you calculate your grade on your own using Excel and the details about points listed above in this syllabus. Simply add up the points you have received on graded assignments and extra credit then divide by 1250. It is your responsibility to know your grade and raise questions if you have any before end of the class. Any individual grade appeals must be made within a week of the grade being posted through the given appeal process. After the class ends no individual assignment grade appeals can be allowed. NOTE: Rounding is not automatic on final grades. For example, if you earn an 89.5, this is a B+ and doesn’tautomatically round up to a 90 (i.e. an A-). The only way grades can be bumped up is if there is room for a curve in the class.
Final ExamThis is only one comprehensive final exam in this course. It is closed-book, closed-note. You may not access any materials or resources during the exam, and you are to follow all university policies regarding academic honesty. The Final Exam will be taken online in Canvas and monitored via proctoring software called ProctorU. It is requiredthat you complete a test of the proctoring software in advance of taking your final exam so that you can contact technical support if needed. Details about signing up for ProctorU account and scheduling your exam proctoring session will be posted in Canvas via announcements and on the Final Exam module. Failure to setup proctoring and take the final, will result in a zero on the final. QuizzesThere are 10 short multiple-choice quizzes; one at the end of each unit.
