Exams will have objective questions.The final exam will not be comprehensive.Material covered in tests will be from the text and from information covered in class.We will have case assignments worth 10 points each and quizzes also worth 10 points each.
Unit tests cannot be made up. However, if you are going to be unable to attend the test session, you may take the test the day before the scheduled time. You will receive a zero for any test missed.
Grading will be done on the basis of total points earned in the class. Cutoff levels for each grade will be determined for each of the components. Those will then be summed to obtain total final cutoff levels for the entire course. The cutoff levels will be announced during the course. Class participation and attendance will be a determining factor when grades lie between two grading categories, e.g. -- a student's grade lies between C+ and B-.
