****IMPORTANT EVALUATION CRITERION****
• Tests will be held in class and will last 80 minutes. There are no deferred tests. For students who can document a compelling reason for missing a test within one week of the missed test, the assigned weight of 15% will be added to the weight of the final exam; otherwise a mark of zero is assigned. Only ONE test will be treated in this way as the maximum weight of the final exam will be 60%.
In addition, please note the following:
▪ A maximum weight of 60% will be given to the final examination in the event that a test is missed. ▪ You will receive a grade of FND in the course (Failure with No Deferred Final Examination Allowed) in any the following situations: o You fail to submit your final assignment.
o You do not receive a passing grade on the average of your tests.
