The students are evaluated in accordance with the university regulations, and they must attend all course meetings in a classroom or a distance learning platform. Informed participation in class discussions – based on completion of the assigned reading and supportive collaboration with classmates – is also required. Each class absence has to be excused in the first week after the lesson missed. The final grade percentage will be reduced for every unexcused absence from virtual class or assignment that a student has failed to complete.
A cumulative grade point average of at least 60% must be achieved to pass the course; however, extra assignments can be given if the results in the texts are over 55% to obtain the points needed.
Instructors are authorized to refuse credit when the student’s absenteeism rate is around 50% even if the absences have had valid reasons.
Timely completion of assigned tasks is obligatory. In the case of assignments submitted after the deadline or re-submitted, the grade is lowered.
NOTE: all the above principles apply to all kinds of classes.
