Textbooks and Materials
Acquiring Textbooks and Course Materials
You are expected to retain an electronic copy of all work submitted. If transmission of the work fails, you are expected to "resend" the document via your instructor's email as an attachment. Assignments will be submitted in Canvas either through Discussion Board forum postings or via the provided links. You are expected to verify your own Canvas responses by returning to the appropriate place in Canvas after the work has been posted.
Grading Turnaround Time:
Quizzes are graded automatically and immediately via Canvas. The multiple choice and matching questions on proctored exams are graded automatically; the short answer question will be graded within three days. Discussion Board postings and the Museum Curator Project will be graded within a week of submission.
Late Work Policy:
There are late penalties on Discussion Board postings (Compare/Contrast and Explorations). 2 points will be deducted for each day late, up to the full possible points (also see the Rubric/Grading Criteria for Discussion Boards).
Extra Credit assignments are accepted late with no penalties.
Museum Curator Projects will only be accepted late with a valid excuse and at instructor's discretion.
There will be no penalty for quizzes or exams taken past the due date. If you miss a due date/availability for an exam, you should contact me with a valid excuse and a plan for completing the exam as soon as possible.
