Course Update October 29, 2013

Greetings Parents and Students,

Please read this bi-weekly newsletter for important information regarding your AP Psychology course.


Please note that grades have been updated as of this weekend. All work that was due by Friday's benchmark has been graded and zeros have been entered for work that has not been submitted. If your grade is below passing you will be receiving a phone call shortly.


The GaVS late policy is as follows:

1 day -10%

2 days -20%

3 days -30%

4 days -40%

5 days -50%

Assignments submitted after 5 days past the due date will not be graded.


Due to Halloween this Thursday I have decided to move this week's Adobe Synchronous Office Hour to Wednesday October 30, 2013. Join me at 8:00 p.m. for a presentation over Motivation and Emotion or to ask questions.


Finals Exams are scheduled for the first week in December:

· They open Wednesday, December 4 @ 12:01 am and close Thursday, December 5 @ 11:59 pm. Exams are only available during that two day time frame.

· Be sure to set aside about 2 hours.

· There are NO extensions. There are NO exemptions.

· Objective Final Exam (20%) The objective final is a cumulative exam covering all of the material covered this semester.

Complete your work in a timely manner.

· Be sure to complete course work in a timely manner; rushed work is usually not your best work. You must have all your work (except finals) turned in by Tuesday 12/3 for timely grade recording.

· Continue to ask questions!!

· NO EXTENSIONS will be given on any assignments!!! Class closes on Friday, December 6 at 11:59 pm and you will have no access to the class after this date.

Look for more detailed information over the next few weeks in NEWS items and via email.
