A class participation grade will be taken each and every class day. The quiz or assignment will be the participation grade if given. Otherwise, 25 will be given for attending and being on time. A 12.5 will be given if you are tardy. An unexcused absence will earn a grade of "ZERO". The midterm and Final Exams will include the participation grade for those days. 25% of the exam grade will be deducted if you are tardy. A grade of "ZERO" will be earned if you have an unexcused absence.

A Student is expected to attend and participate during the scheduled period of instruction (lecture and lab). This begins with the first scheduled class day of the term. A student deemed a non-paticipation for more than 10% (1.5 days) of the lecture or 10% (1.5 days) of the lab periods, regardless of grades earned on assignments, will have to repeat the course. 

Students are required to participate in a safety lecture prior to preforming in the laboratory protion of the course. A written test will be given to each participating student covering the presented safety mterials. Students must compete the safety test with 100% accuracyprior to recieving lab assignments.

 

All lecture and laboratory safety rules and regulations will be followed in every detail. Failure to comply with this policy will result in dismisal of class until further notice.

Can be given at any time by the instructor and are not make up items.

Students can be exempted from a final exam if:

Lecture average is 90 or above

Attendance is perfect

Assignments are completed and turned in

Cell phones may be brought into the classroom or lab as they are part of our society. It is common courtesy to put devices such as cell phones  and laptops away during the presentaions and discussions as alerts and notifications from devices can distract you and others. So, the rule is to turn off all cell phones during class time and put them away. Do not use a laptop in class unless you use it to take notes. If there is a need to use a devise in the classroom, communicate this to your instructor so a discussion can occur and an understanding reached.

 

Phones and earphones may be used in the labfor music only. Phones must be off during demonstrations or class discussions.

Anyone failing to adhere to his policywill be dismissed from classand issued a non-participation grade (absence) for that time period of instructions.

Each student is expected to participate in the awards ceremony and cleanup activities once the date has been identified.

 

Students Final Exam grade is dependent upon their participation at these functions. One half (1/2) of the final exam grade for the course is participation. One half (1/2) is completing the final exam for the course.

 

Students with unexpected circumstances can be excused by the department chair only.

TSTC school calander identifies the end of the semester. Student break begins the day after.
