Modes of Evaluation

Since this is a professional credit subject, marking standards reinforce professional practice by demanding consistent and coherent work that is submitted on time.  Late assignments are penalized.  Begin your assignments early in anticipation of unforeseen problems and a heavy workload in your other courses. 

Assignments should be documented to the instructor's standards.  Where relevant, written work should be well organized and grammatically correct, with proper spelling and punctuation.   

While attendance is not formally a part of this evaluation schedule, you should be aware that absenteeism will almost guarantee your inability to achieve satisfactory grades. There is no formal provision for make-up assignments. 

To attain a passing grade for this subject, students must obtain a mark of 50% or higher. 

Grading is based on the following marking scheme:
