Attendance and participation:Regular attendance and active participation are mandatory and of utmost importance to any foreignlanguage learning experience. Your contributions to class, their quality, and the level of your participationwill be graded as either ‘excellent’ (100%), ‘satisfactory’ (85%), or ‘unsatisfactory’(60%) each week. Theaverage of these weekly assessments will be your participation grade for the course. More than twounexcused absences will result in a grade penalty; your total participation grade will be lowered by 10%for each additional absence. After 7 absences, you will fail the course because you will have missed 25%of the class meetings. There are absolutely no make-up tests or quizzes given; a missed quiz or test willbe recorded as a 0. Exceptions are only made for documented illness, official university business, or majorreligious holidays. However, it remains your responsibility to contact the instructor ahead of time (in caseof severe illness on the day class is missed) and to provide sufficient documentation.
