participation, assignment completion, learning of new concepts and critical thinking processes. Late Assignments and Responsibility of Turning in Work Properly Deliverables are due at designated times as outlined on the course schedule and in specific formats, all of which will be described in assignment criteria. To be fair and to get assignments graded and returned in a timely fashion, the deadlines are critical. Please turn things in correctly. All of your work must be submitted before the deadline. For example, if an assignment is required by 11:59PM and you submit your work at exactly 11:59PM, your assignment will be considered late. Excel or HTML Assignments submitted after the due date, even 1 second after the deadline will be deducted 50% on grading. After 24 hours past the initial deadline, these assignments will not be accepted for grading. For Unit Quizzes and Unit Assessments, no late work will be allowed, even 1 second later. TIP: Start work early and plan to turn it in at least a few hours early so you can manage issues like internet connectivity and computer crashing. ANOTHER TOP: PLEASE double-check your deliverables after you submit to ensure it’s submitted correctly. If your file is not submitted correctly, you will not receive credit for the assignment.
