Your grade in this course is based on the accumulation of percentage points generated from the following:

        1.         Quiz Average                                     33% (of total grade)

        2.         Mid-Term Examination                       33% (of total grade)

        3.         Final Examination                                33% (of total grade)

Grades will be based on the following percentages:

    90-100% - A

    80-89%   - B

    70-79%   - C

    60-69%   - D

*Students should be advised that  make-up test will not be given for missed chapter quizzes.  In determining a student's overall quiz average, the final examination grade will be used as the percentage score for each missed quiz.  This method will be used for a maximum of two missed chapter quizzes.  For each additional missed quiz, a  zero, (percentage points), will be utilized in determining the quiz average.


The IVC General Catalog states:

   "Regular attendance in all classes is expected of all students enrolled.  Instructors are expected to take a  student's attendance record into account in computing grades.  A student may be excluded from further      attendance in a class during any semester when absences after the close of registration have exceeded the number of class hours which the class meets per week."

This policy will be taken into consideration during the semester concerning a student's continued participation in the class.

Any student with a documented disability who may need educational accommodations should notify the instructor or the Disabled Student Programs and Services (DSP&S) office located in the Health Sciences Building, #2117, (760) 355-6312, as soon as possible.
