Grading Criteria

A 90-100% Imaginative, creative, intelligent, original work that does not make compromises
B 80-89% Work that is on the right track to 'A' but gets derailed in some way (eg., language, substance, logic of presentation, etc.)

D 60-69% Serious flaws in logic, presentation, or substance that undermine the quality of the work
F below 60% Did not do enough of the work to make a determination, or, failed to grasp the material in any way, or, plagiarism.

Classroom Policies
Office Visits:
Students are encouraged to visit my office whenever and as often as they wish. Please do not hesitate to stop by during office hours or to make an appointment.

Attendance:
At the college level, students are assumed to be mature enough to realize that missing classes hurts their ability to successfully complete a class ( by this, I mean earning a 'B' or better). 

Make-ups:
I do not allow make-up tests after the fact without proof of serious illness, etc.; however, if you contact me before the test date with a significant problem, I will do my best to accomodate you.

Late Papers/Assignments:
Assignments are to be turned in at the beginning of the class session in which they are due (see syllabus for deadlines). Students are responsible for having assignments on the professor's desk by the time class convenes, after which time they are considered late and, if accepted, will be given less than full credit.

Cheating and Ethical Violations:
Students who cheat or otherwise engage in significant ethical violations can expect me to pursue such matters to the full extent of my abilities, up to and including seeking expulsion from ISU.
