The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.
All final exams in all School of Business courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam. They will be completed during the test week in the period designated by the registrar or by the Proctor in the case online courses. If calculators are allowed, they will not be multifunctional electronic devices that include features such as: phones, cameras, instant messaging, pagers, and so forth. Electronic Computers will not be allowed on final exams unless an exception is made by the Dean of the School of Business.
There will be no late submission of course material. Upon
entering the classroom, learners will drop off their assigned problems with the
instructor and use a copy to work with during the review. Since we do review
all homework and since the answers will be revealed, turning in homework once
this process has been completed compromises the integrity of the course and the
grading structure. Students should email or fax the assigments in prior to the
start of class if they are to be considered for full credit.
Please regard this as static and there can be no exceptions.
I realize that you may leave your work at home of forget it, we are all human,
however, no exception will be made concerning the grading policy.
