|Csc 140 Java Programming with Object Oriented Design|
|Attendance and Grading Policies|
This course is graded using an achievement grading system.
You receive points for
attendance, in-class labs, completing each project, and
for the mini-tests and tests. Your final grade
is determined by how many points you earn. The total
will be approximately 100 points, but may not be exactly 100. See
Grading Scale below. The grading criteria for
will be clearly described before
you start work. You will always have a least one week prior notice of the
due date for all graded material. There will be no "pop" tests
or surprises. Most grading is done interactively with the instructor, with the
instructor giving you immediate feedback. While you are working, the instructor will be glad to evaluate your progress and
tell you whether your work is acceptable, and what you need to do or change to earn the
points for that assignment. If you know that you must
miss a specific graded due date, you may have that task graded early.
There are no make-ups for specific tasks, but for certain very good excuses,
usually arranged in advance of an absence, I simply reduce the number of total
points for that student by the number of points in that task. That makes
the other tasks relatively more important for the final grade for that student.
|Course Grade||Points Earned (note also the Attendance Policy above)|
|A||90% to 100% of your total possible points.|
|B||80% to 89% of your total possible points.|
|C||70% to 79% of your total possible points.|
|D||60% to 69% of your total possible points.|
|F||59% or less of your total possible points.|
Programming is a skill that you can only learn well by doing, and class is the best place to
program because of the ready availability of help. We will discuss some practical techniques in
class that are not covered in the book. Also, you are responsible for everything said or handed out
in a class, whether you attend that particular class or not. Good participation and
effort in the in-class exercises are necessary to get credit for attending a class.
Parkland College requires a final be given for all courses
that receive college credit. The final for CSC 125
will be a test, similar to the previous
tests, but somewhat longer and more comprehensive. It
will be given during the published final exam time:
????., May ??
?:00 pm to
Attendance at this time period is a course requirement. Please plan accordingly and do not schedule any conflicts.
