Specific grade-weighting criteria are as follows:

                        A = 100- 90.00    

                B = 89.99-80.00

                C = 79.99-70.00  

                D = 69.99-60.00  

                F = 59.99 OR >

All assignments will be scored (graded) on a 100-point scale.  Students are welcome to review their progress at any time and to discuss why a certain score may have been assigned (including requests for re-scoring).  The score received on a late assignment will be zero unless presented with a valid attendance excusal. 

 

“Daily” Quizzes: ALWAYS DO YOUR READING FOR EACH CLASS!  Most class sessions will begin with a short quiz.  The format of this metric may vary widely.  The intent is to ensure the student has prepared in advance get the most benefit from that day’s class. 

Cheating and Plagiarism

Cadets students will adhere to the honor code: “A cadet will not lie, cheat or steal.”

Collaboration between students is encouraged.  All work assigned outside of class may be freely discussed and shared between students, however, all work submitted for grade shall have originated through a student’s individual effort and (unless otherwise cited) shall be original to the individual student.   The work of another author (and certainly use of any specific wording over one short sentence in length), or inclusion of any reproduced graphical or audio-visual materials in a student’s work without attribution to the original author and source is plagiarism.

Copyright laws shall be adhered to.  While liberal allowances to copyright laws are made for education purposes, consult the instructor if in doubt.

Any instance of cheating or plagiarism will result in a failing grade on the assigned work, will be dealt with in accordance with school policy and will result in disciplinary action.  [Instructor’s personal note: If you find yourself tempted to cheat or plagiarize stop, take a breath, weigh the risk of major consequences versus any illusory minor gain, and then don’t do it.]

Attendance and Classroom Behavior Policy

Attendance at every class session is mandatory.  Classroom activities and discussion are important aspects of the learning process.  Participation will be evaluated as a part of student performance.  Punctuality is expected. 

Apart from the military courtesies extended to the instructor by cadets, the classroom behavior of all students should be “collegiate.”  Students are free to interject and question, but only with direct recognition from the instructor (i.e. raising hand and being called upon).  Side-conversations are expected not to occur.  Both students and the instructor will “police” classroom behavior.

Discussions of controversial subject matter may arise in class.  Students’ candid opinions are a valued contribution in an academic setting, however, inflammatory or offensive comments, bigotry, sexual, ethnic or racial slurs, avocation of illegal action, etc. will not be tolerated.  A student (and/or the class as a whole) will immediately drop any such line of discussion when requested to do so by the instructor or by any student.  Any offended party is obligated to inform the instructor, either in public or in private.

Any views expressed by the instructor, unless specifically attributed otherwise, should be considered the personal views of the instructor and may not be representative of any official policy or viewpoint of the government, Navy or School.   

Absence:

Excused – Permission for absence must be requested in advance.  Unless otherwise arranged, assignments falling due on the day of an excused absence remain due on or before that day.  An alternative assignment (such as a one page outline or one paragraph answer to a question, usually due at the beginning of the next-attended class session after the absence, and graded only sat/unsat) may be issued as a part of permission for absence.  Excused absence on a scheduled exam or project presentation day will rarely be granted and will usually be contingent upon completing the presentation or an alternate exam prior to the scheduled absence.

Unexcused – Any absence without prior approval of the instructor is an unexcused absence.  No credit will be given for class participation or for any quiz/presentation/exam missed due to the unexcused absence.

Tardiness:  For every three unexcused tardy a letter grade reduction will be apply to the student final grade.
