Grades for the semester
Grades are no longer automatically mailed to students. Please check the current schedule of classes for information about obtaining your grades for the semester. Grades can be obtained via
Final Exam
After completing all units in any developmental mathematics course, a COMPREHENSIVE FINAL EXAM will be required. The score on this exam will be calculated as a portion of your final grade.
Your letter grade will be based on the following scale:
Letter Grade Numerical Grade
A Superior 90 100 %
B Excellent 80 89%
C Average 70 79%
F Failure < 70 %
A grade of F means you have not successfully mastered the material enough to proceed to the next Course Elementary Algebra. You will need to reregister for the course.
W Withdrawal Must submit official form to the records office.
I Incomplete Must see the instructor to complete
The I grade is only given in emergency situations (if you miss the final examination) and only if you have a passing average for the course. You may be required to submit written documentation for verification.
Assessment and Grading Testing Procedures 
Any missed assignments, including tests, quizzes,...will be assigned a grade of 0 by me. If you want a grade other than a zero you must take the tests, quizzes,...
Taking Chapter Quizzes
All of the chapter quizzes are online and are not proctored. Each quiz has a time limit and has only one attempt.
Taking a Proctored Test
If you cannot take the proctored exams (Mid Term and Final) during the scheduled times that I will be available to administer the exam, you we need to make other arrangements with me as soon as possible.
Please make sure you put your name on your papers.
Course Grades are a measure of the student learning outcomes and learning objectives of the course.
Chapter Quizzes  Taken online and must be submitted by the deadline. If you do not make the deadline, or make arrangements to take the quiz a grade of 0 will be assigned. 
Homework Assignments, Review Sheets *Skills Check practice tests,...  All of these are required. They will be added together to make one quiz score.
