Students will be evaluated based upon class performance/participation, tests,
lab assignments and attendance (if you don't show, you can't learn!).
Tests will be short answer, multiple choice or work done on the computer and
printed out. No makeup exams will be given. Assignments are due as scheduled,
unless the schedule is changed. If yours is a Certification Preparation class,
you may take the Certification exam when you are prepared (and BEFORE the end of
the course!) for your Certification Exam score to be used as your final grade.
Each class has its own schedule, based upon the material to be covered. Class
progress may be slower, or faster, than the initial schedule for any number of
reasons. Changes to the schedule will be made, based upon class progress, and
posted on this website, if necessary. If it's not here, it's not official.
Lab time will be scheduled within regular class sessions. Additional lab time
SHOULD be available, but depends upon the computer lab availability. All lab
assignments are designed to be completed within the allowed lab time, unless
otherwise noted in the course schedule.
Grading will be done as objectively as possible and will be based upon:
National Certification Exam (when applicable)
You are expected to attend class regularly. Absence will NOT excuse you from the
responsibility of completing assignments/lab activities. BEFORE you miss class:
Get phone numbers from one or more students, or make other
arrangements with them, to get notes of material covered.
