St. Louis Community College
at Florissant Valley
The final grade is based upon your completion of the following assignments.
Grading Scale: 90-100% is an A, 80-89% is a B, 70-79% is a C, 60-69% is a D, 59% and below is an F.
Attendance: Lectures will include materials not found in the text, as well as elucidation of text materials. Thus attendance is very critical for full comprehension of the theoretical and conceptual aspects of the course. Attendance for lecture tests is required during your scheduled time and date. A grade of zero is recorded if you miss a test. If you were absent for the scheduled lecture test without prior notice, the test will not be given again. Any student cheating during an exam will be given a zero on that exam.
Extra credit will be given totaling 100 pts. Should your accumulated extra credit points be greater than your lowest test score, that low test score will be replaced with extra credit points. Extra credit will be in the form of quizzes and research assignments throughout the semester (see attached extra credit assignment sheet). There will be no make-ups for quizzes after the day of the quiz.
You must attend a laboratory section. You must successfully complete both the lecture and laboratory portions of this course in order to receive a passing grade. You must complete the lab work and earn a lab grade of 50% in order to qualify for a passing grade in A&P. Students who miss more than two scheduled lab periods or who have to leave early will be docked five percent of their lab average for each additional non-performance period.
Any student in this class with a documented disability who needs special testing arrangements, note taking, or other accommodations should feel free to discuss this with the instructor. All discussions will remain confidential. No information will be shared without permission.
