Policies and Assessment


Grades will be based on:

Contributions to Class (the value you add to everyone's learning: thoughtful questions, pertinent answers, insight, logic, substance, and always courtesy - more than mere attendance)
Penalty for excessive absences
11%
the Contribution component will have 2.5% deducted for each absence falling within the definition of excess (see below)
Reflections (5 Reflections @ 4%) 20%
Optional Creative Challenges (2 Challenges: if undertaken successfully, a Challenge grade may replace the lowest grade on one of the Reflections, or may redeem one excessive absence)
Translation exercise (part 1 @ 2% plus part 2 @ 4%) 6%
First in-class examination 21%
Second in-class examination 21%
Final examination 21%
The "midterm grade" will reflect the weighted average, pro-rated, of the components completed to date.
