Grading Policy

A

90-100%

B

80-89%

C

70-79%

D

60-69%

F

<60%

Check posted grades regularly everyday is best. You are at least partially responsible for your recorded grade. If you identify a discrepancy, report it immediately with verifying evidence.

Homework

An average of one chapter from the text will be covered per week. Homework may be completed online using the online homework system available at www.triton.cc/cis101 . Your login ID will be provided by the instructor.

Lab work

Workbook/lab projects and assignments are as noted in the table above.  The assignment will be due at the end of the following class period.  Thus, an assignment made on Tuesday will be due on Thursday.  Assignments made on Thursday will be due on the following Tuesday.   Assignments may be turned in prior to the due date.  Late assignments will be penalized two points per day.

Excel Worksheets

All Excel worksheets must be turned in with their formulas on a separate sheet. Assignments submitted without formulas will be returned with only partial credit.

Pressing the control key and the grave mark (located on the same key as the tilde ~ in the upper left corner of the keyboard) at the same time toggles the sheet between the regular display and the formula display.

Access Assignments

Access is unfamiliar to most, so expect to spend more time using it and becoming familiar with how to use the program. Clearly label the specific assignment, or it may be returned for identification.

 

Other requirements:

Exam dates will be announced in advance.

The specifications for the lab/programming assignments must be followed regarding the specific commands that must be used to solve the problem.

All programs are due at the end of the period one week following the assignment. 25% will be deducted from the program for each week late. No credit will be given for a program more than 3 weeks late.

The lab portion of the class is a requirement unless you are up-to-date with all your assignments. Surfing of the web or other non-project related activities are not permitted.

Homework and programs are to be the sole work of you, the student, submitting the assignment. You may ask for and receive assistance in the development and debugging of your program, but if you cannot reproduce the program or similar program under the supervision of the instructor you will not be given credit for that program.

Academic honesty is expected from students enrolled in courses and programs offered by the CIS department; violations of this expectation will not be tolerated. Violations of the expectation of academic honesty include, but are not limited to:

  • Obtaining or attempting to obtain a copy of an examination prior to its administration, and unauthorized use of study materials or textbooks during an examination.
