A = 90 - 100% B = 80 - 89% C = 70 - 79% D = 60 - 69% F = 0 - 59%Consideration will be given to such qualities as attendance, class participation, attentiveness, attitude in class, and cooperation to produce the maximum learning situation for everyone.
Any student who stops attending without dropping will receive a grade of F.
The student is responsible for all assignments, changes in assignments, or other verbal information given in the class, whether you are in attendance or not.
If a student must miss class, a call to the instructor (RCC's phone system has an answering system) is to be made. If an exam is to be missed, a phone call is to be made and a written notice given. If the instructor is not contacted, the grade will be zero. If a student misses an exam, and gives written notice, the percent score of the final exam will be used in its place. The student should be careful in exercising this policy, as it is very rare when a student gets a noticeably higher grade on the final exam. This substitution of the final exam percent will be done once, and only once. Any other examination missed will receive a grade of 0. If a student doe not give written notice of missing the exam, the option of using the final exam score as a substitute grade will not be done, and the exam grade will be zero.
If your class(es) leave you puzzled, the Study Assistance Center is a service that Richland Community College offers you. It is available free of charge to all RCC students.
There is also a video tape on Improving Math Study and Test Taking Skills on reserve in the Learning Resources Center. If you struggle with math tests, watching this video will be well worth the hour it takes.
