GRADING:

Nine weeks grades will be computed using quizzes, examinations, and homework/classwork assignments. Examinations and quizzes will account for 70% of the nine weeks grade. Homework/classwork will account for 30%. The number of tests and quizzes will changed from nine weeks to nine weeks due to the amount and type of content covered. The Rio Rancho District scale will be followed when issuing nine weeks, semester, and final course grades. Semester grades will be computed using the nine weeks averages (weighted 40% each) and the semester exam (weighted 20%).

All students are required to take notes. If students are absent, they are expected to print handouts from the instructor’s website. Students will be expected to go to the instructor or the website to keep track of assignments and class activities when absent.
