Quizzes and tests are taken on line. For the final, a student must identify an independent proctor and the final written test will be mailed to them for you to take. When you have finished the test the proctor will mail the test back to us.
Students are expected to complete three assignments or lessons each week for each class. Each lesson will have an online quiz at the end of the lesson and the grade will be sent to me automatically. This feature enables me to keep track of a students progress. If a student does not complete the lessons for thSunday Sunday night, it will be counted as an unexcused absence. Three unexcused absences will result in the loss of one letter grade for the class. I a student needs to work or be gone for the week some reason, just e-mail us or call and it will not be counted as an unexcused absence.
ACADEMIC HONESTY: Instances of academic dishonesty will not be tolerated. This applies to both tests and assignments. Students are expected to complete their own assignments and submit their own work. Students who use or provide others with access to computer materials will be held responsible for their actions. Please review the Student Handbook for the consequences of cheating.
