Grading Policy:

Because of the bonus opportunities and take-home portions on all tests except the final the following grades are given without appeal:

100  -  90  =  A                                                          79  -   70  =  C

Bonus Opportuinities:

Bonus points are possible with a bonus question on all in-class tests including the final.  3 points per test.  In addition, there is an opportunity to take quizzers on-line which will provide 3 points added to the average for a perfect score, (you can receive a prorated portion of these points) NOTE:  The testing policy is if you have take a test late you will forfeit 10 points for each day late that you take the test late (not counting weekends or legitimate exceptions).  More than three days late in taking the test will result in a grade of zero (0).

 There is no exemption for the final exam in this class so don’t even ask.


Your performance in this subject is directly related with your doing the homework and all class assignments.  Homework will be taken up at random during the semester, and graded.  This grade is applied as an additional test grade.

            Students at the University of Arkansas at Monticello are expected to conduct themselves appropriately, keeping in mind that they are subject to the laws of the community and standards of society.  The student must not conduct him/herself in a manner that disrupts the academic community or breaches the freedom of other students to progress academically.

Academic Dishonesty:

1.      Cheating:  Students shall not give, receive, offer, or solicit information on examinations, quizzes, etc. This includes but is not limited to the following classes of dishonesty:

a.       Copying from another student’s paper;

b.      Use during the examination of prepared materials, notes, or texts other than those specifically permitted by the instructor;

c.       Collaboration with another student during the examination;

d.      Buying, selling, stealing, soliciting, or transmitting an examination or any material purported to be the unreleased contents of coming examinations or the use of any such material;

e.       Substituting for another person during an examination or allowing such substitutions for oneself.

2.      Collusion: Collusion is defined as obtaining from another party, without specific approval in advance by the instructor, assistance in the production of work offered for credit to the extent that the work reflects the ideas of the party consulted rather than those of the person whose name in on the work submitted.

3.      Duplicity: Duplicity is defined as offering for credit identical or substantially unchanged work in two or more courses, without specific advanced approval of the instructors involved.

4.      Plagiarism: Plagiarism is defined as adopting and reproducing as one’s own, to appropriate to one’s use, and to incorporate in one’s own work without acknowledgement the ideas or passages from the writings or works of others.


For any instance of academic dishonesty that is discovered by the instructor, whether the dishonesty is found to be cheating, collusion, duplicity, or plagiarism, the result for the student(s) involved will be a zero on that specific project and if it happens a second time a zero in the course.
