At the end of each class session, I will tell the class which case brief(s) will be discussed in the next class session. 1You must attend class. You will not be able to learn the course material or develop the skills needed unless you attend regularly. Fifteen percent (15%) of your final course grade is based upon class attendance and professionalism. In addition, if you miss more than four class sessions, your final grade in the course will be reduced one level. For example, if your total points equate to a “C” for the semester (including the 15% component for participation/attendance), it will be reduced to a “C-“ if you miss more than four class sessions. If you miss more than 50% of the total class sessions, you will receive an “F” in the course.

Therefore, grades will not be changed unless there has been a clerical or computational error.
