EXAMS and Quizzes

3 COURSE EXAMS (100 pts)

5 Quizzes (50 pts)

FINAL (150 pts)

TOTAL = 500 pts

Room 108

grade exams
Grade/Exams

Students must take all exams at the scheduled time

Grades in this course will be based on your performance relative to the class as a whole.

You may estimate your grade for an exam as follows:

A = Minimum 20 points above class average

B = Minimum 10 points above class average

C = Minimum 10 points below class average

D = Minimum 20 points below class average

F = More than 20 points below class average

slide7

Your Final Grade will be computed by dropping the lowest

score and substituting the point value on the final

scaled to a 100 point test

Philosophy:

What a student has learned in a course is best told by the performance on the final exam. Dropping an exam will give students who“hang in there”the opportunity to make past amends.

Makeup Exam Options

A student who misses an exam and has a

University-Excused absence may:

1. Take a makeup exam within two weeks

or

2. Request that the points on the final, scaled

to 100 points, substitute for the missed exam

Dear Dr. Harris:

I am writing to tell you how much I enjoyed your biochemistry course. It has made me a new person.

I can honestly say it has left a lasting impression on me! I will never

be the same.

Sincerely,

One of your former students
