Labs:
Remember that Lab is worth a quarter of your grade.
Be certain you come to lab; there will be a short set of questions that will be turned in at the end of each lab. Your attendance and these questions will be worth 5 points per lab, accounting for 50 points of your lab score. There will be three lab quizzes, worth 50 points each. Dates for these will be on the lab schedule. Plan your schedule around these dates. Lab requires working with preserved specimens. Any issues you may have with this need to be addressed immediately. Work closely with your lab specialist. Your lab specialist is the person who is going to get your through lab. In all issues dealing with lab I defer to them, and how they organize, structure or arrange lab is their prerogative. Your lab specialist will give you contact information for them, hours that they will be available to help you, and arrange for tutoring/open lab times. Tests:

Tests will be given during regular class time. They will consist of 50 questions, multiple choice and/or short answer. Study hard for your tests! There is a lot of information to be learned with this course, and tests will require a thorough knowledge of the material. Be certain to read the clinical view associated with each section. Every test question is based on the objectives for each segment of the course. Objectives are posted on blackboard. Be sure to know and be able to produce an answer to each objective. This is the best way to do well on your tests. Test dates are outlined on the lab schedule. Plan to be in class an ready to take the test on the day indicated. All late tests will be penalized 25 points. There are no exceptions to this policy. Schedule other activities around these test dates. A separate paper on this policy is included in the course information on blackboard. Weekly Roll:
