EVALUATION PROCEDURES:

  1. Attendance and regular participation is essential. Every absence will diminish the final grade.
  2. Written essays must be submitted as a MS-Word document in an email or in the disignated folder on BOLT. Each chapter composition will be factored as a percentage of the capter test.
  3. Voice recordings will either be submitted BOLT, as an electronic file in an email, or using an application or Internet tool. Students may be required to use the resources in the Language Laboratory in the Department of Languages and Cultures.
  4. Assignments are accepted on the due date only, unless there is compelling need to submit a late assignment.
  5. Students are responsible for all computer assignments and must find a computer that can access and operate all the required files and functions. The language laboratory is available for all computer activities.
  6. Two hours of preparation is expected for each hour in class--six hours of preparation per week.
