Class Policies Being a member of a judging team can be one of the most valuable experiences of your college career. Instructors at this university and many others consider students who compete on judging teams to be the “elite” of their programs. Professional behavior, language and appropriate attire are expected at all times. In order to be successful at competitions you will need to practice OUTSIDE of scheduled class time. We will attempt to schedule some weekend workouts as opportunities arise. The instructor and/or the teaching assistants are available to facilitate watching extra videos and/or giving extra sets of reasons. Travel Teams consist of 5 members and most contests allow two teams per school. Each student’s ability to compete on a team will be based on the following criteria, all to be weighted evenly: effort, attendance, timeliness, attitude, placing scores, reasons scores, and teamwork. The top five ranked class members will compete on the first team, followed by the next top five for the second team. Other students may compete as individuals. Entry fees and travel expenses (minus meals) are paid for by the University as budget permits. Team members are expected to assist with fundraising and outside judging events throughout the year.Grading The primary parameter utilized to assess grades is attendance. All placing and reasons scores will be recorded throughout the semester. During a fifteen week semester, students will meet approximately 45 times. Students will lose 8.2 percentage points from their final grade for each unexcused absence. Therefore, students with one unexcused absence will still receive an A, whereas students with five unexcused absences will receive an E. For information on current UF policies for assigning grade points, see Online Course Evaluation Process Student assessment of instruction is an important part of efforts to improve teaching and learning. At the end of the semester, students are expected to provide feedback on the quality of instruction in this course using a standard set of university and college criteria. These evaluations are conducted online at . Evaluations are typically open for students to complete during the last two or three weeks of the semester; students will be notified of the specific times when they are open. Summary results of these assessments are available to students at .
As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
