Policies and Assessment


Grades will be based on:

Participation (beyond passive attendance: your timely contributions advancing the work of the class as a whole, in synchronous and asynchronous formats) 10%
Written homework (collected periodically) cumulative average = 20%
Short quizzes cumulative average = 25%
Midterm exam 20%
Final exam 25%
Non-continuity penalty (see below) participation-assessment loses 2.5% for each non-contributed class-meeting falling within the definition of excess (see below)
The "midterm grade" will reflect the weighted average, pro-rated, of the components completed to date: participation, homework and quizzes to date and the midterm exam.

Academic support-resources at Loyola University Chicago include:


Land Acknowledgment: The Loyola community occupies the traditional homelands of the people of the Council of Three Fires, the Ojibwe, Potawatomi, and Odawa as well as the Menominee, Miami and Ho-Chunk nations. This was also a site of trade, travel, gathering and healing for more than a dozen other Native tribes and is still home to over 100,000 tribal members in the state of Illinois.
