and their questions to the sessions.
who has not missed either Exam 1 or Exam 2 may take the
Comprehensive Make-Up Exam on the last day of classes.
Comprehensive means the totality of the Syllabus (from Day One to
the Last Day). This will
than be considered as a fourth exam. Instead of distributing the
assigned percentages to three exams, I will distribute them among
four exams. Of course, one risks the possibility of lowering their
grade if their performance on this Comprehensive Make-Up Exam is
lower than their existing average.
will need to send me an email stating that you will be taking this
Comprehensive Make-Up Exam by 5pm, Friday, December 2. In your
subject line, you must have "Your
POLS 2311, Make-Up Exam" (or 10 points deducted on that exam). If
you do not send me this email, you will not be able to take this
Exam. If you do send me this email, you must take this Exam (i.e.,
you may not change your mind--if you do not show for the exam after
confirming that you will, your grade will be a zero).
If it would
be of any assistance, I would be glad to provide any student
feedback regarding their notes from this class. Obviously, I am not
going to criticize your particular approach, but I will certainly
provide you with some opinions as to whether you are covering the
correct information, enough information, etc. All I request is this
Friday (Nov. 11) that you provide me with a copy of your notes from:
Monday, Nov. 7
Wednesday, Nov. 9
on how many I receive, I will do my best to return these to you on
Monday, Nov. 14.
No class, 12/2
It is the responsibility
of every student to confirm that they are registered for this class.
Confirmation of Enrollment of Student Response Pad in a Particular
Remember--if you did not enroll your Student Response Pad for this
course by the deadline, you will be utilizing the option that does
not include the Daily Quizzes. But that is not a punishment,
failure, disadvantage, etc. Your other grades will still be
weighted to give you 100% (for perfect scores). In fact, a
plausible scenario is that your grade will be better without the
Daily Quizzes than with them.
