Attendance Policy

Lack of attendance in ENG 125 may not be the sole reason that students fail this course. Grades must be based on work completed during the semester. We strongly suggest instructors include the following on their course syllabi:
  1. A percentage for Class Participation that ranges from 10-20% in the grading breakdown.
  2. A clear description of the policy for late assignments, specifying when and under what circumstances late assignments will and will not be accepted.
  3. A clear description of the marking or accounting for the completion of in-class work, as separate from homework or out of class work, both as a practice in the classroom and as a part of the grading breakdown, perhaps as part of or separated from the “Class Participation” portion.
