Requirements: Students are required to complete all the assessment components in order to pass the course. More detail about the requirements for each piece of assessment will be provided in class.
Grading: Assessments will be graded using A through to F. Students are advised that deciding grades is an exercise of academic judgment. Although the grades will be subjected to review upon presentation of relevant argument by students, final grade assignment will be determined by the instructorís academic judgment.
Due dates: If you anticipate being unable to complete an assessment by the due date, then please contact the instructor as early as possible to make alternative arrangements. Early notification of needs will receive much more leniency than late requests. Requests for extensions within a week of the due date will generally not be approved, except for emergency cases. Late penalties will be applied to assessments that are late without approval, @ -5% per day.
Students can expect this course to:
o be reading and writing intensive,
o develop reading, writing and research skills.
o involve a variety of readings, lectures, internet search exercises, student presentations, class discussions, writing exercises, and peer review of written work.
It is expected that in addition to attending the three hour class each week, it is recommended that students do a minimum of a further four hours out of class study per week in order to complete set readings and set exercises. In general, however, students who do particularly well in this course tend to spend closer to an average of ten hours per week out of class, allow them to engage in more depth with the advanced course materials and in individual areas of interest.
