DEPARTMENTAL FINAL EXAMINATION REQUIREMENT FOR MATH 1530:
GRADING FOR THE COURSE: The grade will be based on a possible 1000 points (200
from the Final Examination, 100 from Capstone Project, 50 from practice
quizzes and 650 determined by the instructor). The scale follows:
LEARNING
CURVE ASSIGNMENTS: there are 19 learning curve assignments available
from statsportal (http://courses.bfwpub.com/ess2e.php).
The assignments account for 5% (50
points) of your final grade. There is no time commitment and unlimited
attempts to complete these assessments but a student must achieve the goal of
a chapter assessment to get full credit (2.5 points) on that
assignment. You will receive 2.5 points for
attempting all assignments. All assignments must be taken one hour prior to the final exam. BONUS POINTS FOR GOOD ATTENDANCE (after the first week of classes): You may receive a bonus for good attendance (we don’t count absences occurring during the first week of the semester). An absence can only be “excused” by presenting Instructor with an official ETSU Class Absence Authorization For Student Participation In A UniversitySponsored Activity prior to the occurrence of the absence. No other types of absences will be excused even if you have an impeccable reason for not being in class. We interpret the number of absences recorded for a student as an indication of the amount of lecture material they have missed during the semester, not as a critical judgment of that student’s character, motivation and honesty. Bonus points will be awarded in the following manner:
5 absences or more
Zero bonus points
4 absences
10 bonus points
3 absences
20 bonus points
2 absences
30 bonus points
1 absence 40 bonus points
0 absences
50 bonus points DEPARTMENTAL ATTENDANCE
