[Assignment Policies]
All assignments, including the final submission, must be handed in complete and on time. Work submitted late or in an incomplete state will either be penalized during grading, or not accepted as
determined by the professor. Computer issues and output problems will not be accepted as a valid excuse for failure to submit work or to pin-up.
Failure to present work at any of the project reviews will result in a full letter grade reduction for the course, and failure to present in more than one project review will result in automatic failure for
the course. Absence from a review is equivalent to absence from an exam. Anyone arriving late for scheduled pin-ups or critiques will be marked absent and may not be allowed to present.
[Grading Policy]
Grades will be based on an evaluation of the quality and consistency of participation, the quality and development in the project, and comprehension of the content in the technical details of the
project.
Excellent (A): Consistently produces work of the highest quality and craft; exhibits notable progress and development; meets all course objectives at highest level. Work of excellent
quality, energy, and intense involvement outstanding.
Above Average (B): Completes all assignments with work of good quality and craft; exhibits significant progress and development; meets most course objectives. Most
work of high quality, energy, and involvement good.
Average (C): Completes all assignments with work of acceptable quality and craft; exhibits some progress and development; meets some course objectives. Minimum required
work completed and submitted on time, but without distinction.
Below Average (D): Assignments are incomplete and/or of low quality and craft; exhibits little effort, progress and development; meets few course objectives. Minimal
effort and/or minimal results, poor but passing.
Failing (E): Fails to meet even the minimum course requirements. Unsatisfactory in all aspects.
Incomplete (I): Only for extenuating circumstances which impede your ability to deliver your work complete and on time. Must be approved by the professor in advance of final grading.
[Academic Honesty]
Refer to The Undergraduate Student Handbook.
[Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Policy Statement]
Columbia College Chicago seeks to maintain a supportive academic environment for students with disabilities. Students who self-identify as having a disability should present their documentation to
the Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) office. After the documentation has been reviewed by the SSD office, a Columbia College accommodation letter will be provided to the student.
