CIS 120DF Course Competencies


Class Procedure and Homework


Software instruction will usually take place in a classroom equipped with computers. You will be responsible for additional lab time outside of class to complete homework assignments and to prepare for tests.

I accept late assignments but they will be penalized so don't procrastinate. I will not grade more than 2 late assignments!

For Your Protection:

It is your responsibility to SAVE your assignments in a folder, on your computer or another removable media.  Keep these copies in a safe place until you have received your final grade.

Student Disabilities:
Students with disabilities who believe they may need accommodations are encouraged to contact the Disability Resource Center, KSC-Building -119, 602.787.7170.
You will receive 60% for completing the example in class. 70 to 80% for improving upon the assignment in class. 90 to 100% for a completely new demonstration of that concept.

Your homework is not late until I finish grading the class.

I accept late assignments but I won't grade it until the end of the semester. You will receive only 70% of the grade you would have received if you turned the work in on time!
