Acquiring Textbooks and Course Materials
This being an online course, attendance is met by posting the assignments and taking the quizzes and exams by the due date.
In this course, though you should work on an assigned chapter at least 3 times a week, all work will be due at midnight on Sunday evening. Pace your studying is several short sessions rather than a long one on Sunday afternoon.
Late Work Policy: (Instructors, please modify the following late work policy)
All Canvas work is subject to a 1% late penalty per day. This means that each day your canvas work is late it will add a 1% penalty. For example, if you submit a 50-point assignment 5 days late, your assignment will be subject to a 5% late penalty which is a reduction of 2.5 points. Textbook homework will not have a late penalty, but keep in mind the exams are based on the textbook and Canvas work, so you want to do them before you take the exam.
Grading Turnaround Time:
All completed assignments will be graded no later than seven days from the submission date, and sooner when possible.
