54.4 Attendance, Evaluations and Grading

    Since presence at lectures, participation in classroom discussions and projects, and the completion of assignments are important components of most courses, students will serve their interests best by regular attendance. Those who choose not to attend must assume whatever risks are involved. Students should pay close attention to any further requirements on attendance and class participation indicated on course outlines (see §23.4). As well, students should refer to §23.3 for specific regulations regarding exams.

    Every student’s performance will be evaluated at least two times per term in each course. The evaluations may take the form of tests, essays, and/or other assignments. The results of at least one evaluation in each course will be available to students no later than the eighth week of the term. For further information on evaluations, grading, and exams, see §§23.4 and 23.5.

    No examination valued at more than 20% of the final grade (10% in two term Fall/Winter courses) shall be scheduled during the last ten instructional days of the Fall or Winter term.

    No student shall be required to write three final exams in one day (i.e., in the morning, afternoon, and evening exam periods). Should a student have three exams scheduled in one day, the student should contact the Office of the Registrar at Augustana as soon as possible for assistance in rescheduling one exam to another time within that final examination period.
