Late Policy

I have had some email me regarding completing items that are overdue. Please make sure that you have reviewed the GaVS late policy regarding the weekly due dates and zeros entered after 3 school days. NO work is accepted over 3 school days late.

What do I need to make on my final exam??

I have had a few inquiries regarding what you need to score on your final exam for a certain grade outcome. Please note, there are no other extra credit opportunities or remediation to be provided.

Here is the formula to calculate your grade:

Your Grade = 0.15( assignment average) + 0.05 ( discussion average) + 0.4 ( Test Average) + 0.2 ( Qz Average) + 0.2( Final exam grade)

*For AP Stats:

You Grade = 0.15( assignment average) + 0.1( discussion average) + 0.35 ( Test Average) + 0.2 ( Qz Average) + 0.2( Final exam grade)

Here are a few suggestions:

· Review office hours on topic that you need help.

· Attend Final Exam review sessions.

· Review all of the missed quiz questions.

· Review notes and ask questions

Note: Questions that you see on your quizzes might come up again in your Final exam.

What about my extra credit?

The last day to turn in assignments is Monday, May 8, 2017

All assignments must be handed in prior to 11:59 p.m. to be accepted for credit. Dropboxes, quizzes, and discussions will all close at this time. There are no extensions past this date. All work must be submitted prior to taking the final exam. You may only submit assignments from this week. Old assignments will not be accepted.

  • Final exams open Wednesday, May 10th @ 12:01 am and close Thursday, May 11th @ 11:59 pm. Exams are only available during this time frame. (Please do not attempt to submit or complete any other/past coursework.)

  • Once the exam opens it must be completed within the timeframe allotted for the course and within one sitting.

  • Be sure that you complete your exams using a trusty computer with a trusty connection – NO EXCUSES!!! Final exams will not be reset.

  • Objective Final Exam (20%) The objective final exam (multiple choice) is a cumulative exam covering all of the material covered this semester. The format of the exam is very similar to the exams you are used to taking. To prepare for the exam, use any notes you have, take a look at the review sections of the content, listen to corresponding Adobe Session links. Revisit your assignments for all units as well as re-reading the quiz and test feedback (very useful).

Grades will be released to your transcript and local schools on Thursday, 5/18, as long as there are no issues.

: I cannot communicate grades via phone or email. You MUST login to retrieve your final course grade.
