Late Work Policy: Homework* will be collected on the due date at the beginning of class and will not be accepted late. Projects must be submitted electronically by 11:59:59pm on the due date. Late projects will not be accepted. You are expected to complete assignments in advance for known school events (e.g. athletic or club events). The instructor reserves the right to modify the late policy for students with extenuating circumstances.

Exams: As previously noted, there will be two examinations, one skills exam (an exam to test the CS skills you learned during your time at NWMSU) and one final. Unless announced otherwise in class, these examinations will take place on the following dates:

Exam 1: Monday, February 24, 2014
Skills Exam: Wednesday, April 9, 2014, 5:00pm - 8:00pm and Thursday, April 10, 2014, 5:00pm - 8:00pm
Exam 2: Monday, April 7, 2014

Students absent during the day of an exam will be given the choice to count the final exam twice or to take a comprehensive make-up exam, time TBD by instructor. The final exam score will replace one regular exam score if a student has a higher score on the final than on one of the two regular exams. The instructor reserves the right to give a regular make-up exam to students having extenuating circumstances such as emergency illness.

Grading Policy:  Grades will be assigned based upon accumulated points as follows:

100% - 90% -->  A
89.99% - 80% -->  B
79.99% - 70% -->  C
69.99% - 60% -->  D
59.99% - 0% -->  F

The grade scale will not be raised; however, the instructor reserves the right to lower the grade scale without prior notice.

If you have a problem with a grade, please discuss it with the instructor.

Disabilities: Students in this course who need accommodations/modifications should present a copy of their official Northwest accommodation letter from the LAP/S Committee to the instructor as early in the term as possible. Additional information can be found at http://www.nwmissouri.edu/swd.

Academic Integrity: All assignments are to be completed individually unless otherwise designated. You may discuss the concepts of a current assignment with another person. Sharing code for a current assignment, handing in a program written by someone else, and all other obviously dishonest practices are prohibited.

Students are encouraged to come to office hours for help.

Students are expected to read and understand the CSIS Academic Integrity Policy available at http://www.nwmissouri.edu/mathcsis/pdf/AcademicIntegrityCSI.doc.
