Tests and homework must be completed by end of stated due dates. Complications with student activity will require student communication with instructor by phone, email or Moodle messages.

 

A student is expected to attend and participate during the scheduled period of lab instruction.  This begins with the first scheduled class day of the term.  A student deemed a non-participant for more than 10% ( 9.0 hours) of the lab periods, regardless of grades earned on assignments, will have to repeat the course.  Participation in Moodle learning activities is recorded.  Students not participating in Moodle activities for more than 11 consecutive school days, excluding weekends, will be deemed a non-participant and will have to repeat the course.

A student is considered tardy up to 15 minutes into the scheduled lecture or lab, and thereafter will be considered a non-participant for that period of instruction and receive an absense.

Late work / Test Policies 

All students are required to be present for class.  However, unexpected circumstances will occur.  If a student has an excused absence, death or illness in the immediate family, the student must notify the instructor of record immediately.  If a test is missed, the instructor has to give permission for make up. The missed test must be made up before the next scheduled period of instruction. 

An excused absence only allows for make up of missed assignments or test. The absence is recorded.
 
Assignments are due at the beginning of class of the set due date. Late assignments will not be accepted and a grade of “zero” will be earned for said assignment. Students who prior contacted the instructor may be considered excused.
