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)
10%
the Contribution component will have 2.5% deducted for each absence falling within the definition of excess (see below)
Methodological exercises (SQ3R Grid, Source-exercises, Research-exercises: cumulative average) 15%
Collaborative research project (joint in-class presentation of results @ 5% plus individual written report of individual research and results @ 10%) 15%
First in-class examination 20%
Second in-class examination 20%
Final examination 20%
The "midterm grade" will reflect the weighted average, pro-rated, of the components completed to date: participation and methodological exercises to date, and the first in-class exam.
