  • … I will drop your lowest activity and …
  • … your two lowest homework grades.

BUT, what if …

I have pictures and doctors’ excuses to prove it …

I fell off a building and was in a full body cast for a month …

a student

But I am feeling a bit better now and want to catch up. Can we work something out?

comes to me and says …

Yes, in extreme and excused circumstances I would, of course, be willing to work something out with you.

slide4

What you should you do if you miss class?

Don’t send an email, until

you …

4. … come to the lab during one of the open periods to get help from a tutor.

5. If you still feel the need, contact me to set up a time to meet so that I can answer the questions you might still have after you have completed steps 1 through 4.

  • Check the Week-By-Week on the course website http://qrc.depaul.edu.
  • Read the notes on the website and attempt to do the activities so you can learn the material.
  • Contact a classmate to get help or …

I am always more than happy to help students who are putting time into the class!

slide5

But wait a minute … let’s take another look at that email.

What is wrong with … ?

Dude! My name is Dr. Morales…

And by the way, who are you?

If you miss class you don’t need to tell me about it.

I know you are a good person.

And as long as you follow the advice on the previous slide you’ll be fine.

But then again at this point I can see why you wouldn’t want me to know who you are.

No need to announce it.

Oh, no, of course not. We never do anything important in class.

slide6

Exam Policies

There are no make-up exams or quizzes in this course. 

If you cannot take an exam or quiz  due to illness or family emergency, you must inform me in advance by phone or email. 

An unexcused missed examination will count as a 0. 

An excused missed midterm exam  is dropped, and the remaining forms of evaluation, especially the final exam, are more heavily weighted in the final grade.

QRC Final Exam Policy:

You must get a 60% or higher on your final exam

to pass the course, regardless of your overall

average in the course!

DePaul Unversity Policy on Incomplete Grades:

Grades of Incomplete are given only in cases of medical emergency or other highly unusual emergency situations.  

You must be earning a passing grade at the time you request an incomplete grade.

You should have completed most of course, with at most one or two major forms of evaluation missing. 

Incompletes revert to an F if they are not resolved within one quarter.  

The same goes for the final exam:

If you cannot take the final due to illness or family emergency, you must inform me in advance by phone or email.

In the case of an excused absence, you will likely be granted an incomplete, but …

Final Project Policies

You will likely work with a group for the final project.

If you are not pulling your weight and your group complains to me (early enough in the quarter!), you will have to start from scratch and do a different project by yourself.

So please stay in touch with your groupmates and do your share of the work.

Attendance on the presentation days is mandatory.

If you miss the day of your own presentation you will get a 0 for the presentation.

If you miss any other presentation day your grade on the presentation will be lowered.

slide8

Scenario: The day after the midterm. No prior correspondence between student and the teacher.

Scenario: Two days before projects are due. No prior correspondence between student and the teacher.

I missed the midterm. When can I make it up?

Scenario: Student gets an F in QR and is surprised.

Why did I fail the course? I was getting an A?

Scenario: Student is failing the course.

Scenario: Student shows up on Tuesday to give the group presentation, but doesn’t come on Thursday when other groups are presenting.

Can I do extra credit to pass?

I did all the work on the final project, so could you please fail my group-mates?

Why did I get a lower grade than my group-mates?

I could have done something if you let me know a few weeks ago, but now it is too close to the end. The whole group gets the same grade.

No, you didn’t let me know in advance, so you get a 0 for the midterm.

Student got a 20% on the final, which is well below the 55% cut-off.

If there is any extra credit it will be offered to the whole class. It will only help your grade a little bit and would never help you pass if you are failing.

Attendance is mandatory on presentation days!

A few tips for doing well:

  • Come to class.
  • Do your homework.
  • Study the online materials before the midterm and the final exam.
  • Put in your share of the work on the final project.
  • Honor the course policies!

Have a great quarter!

The End!
