Policies and Assessment

Grades will be based on:

Contributions to Class (the value you add to everyone's learning: thoughtful questions, pertinent answers, insight, logic, substance, and always courtesy - more than mere attendance)
  • Penalty for excessive absences (see below)
-2.5% per absence falling within the definition of excess (see below)
Factoidal quizzes (on current reading, usually every 2-3 meetings or as needed; cumulative average) 10%
Collaborative performances and associated short essays (insight and effectiveness at communicating it; cumulative average: performances, 7.5%, essays 12.5%) 20%
Examinations (20% each, totaling together) 60%
The "midterm grade" will reflect the weighted average, pro-rated, of the components completed to date: participation, quizzes, writing and performances to date, and the first in-class exam.
