* "P" - Pass/Fail: This grading system is available for all classes. The instructor is to give a "P" grade if the student performs at or better than the class standard for a "C" grade. Students performing below this standard must be given an "F" grade. Any student pursuing a degree should check with his/her advisor prior to selecting this option.
** "W" - Withdrawal: A "W" is assigned if the student officially withdraws (drops) from the course after the census/refund date and on or before the Withdrawal date.
*** "AW" - Administrative Withdrawal: If the student is withdrawn from the course by the faculty member or other college administrator on or before the Withdrawal date, a grade of "AW" is assigned for the course.
**** "AU" - Audit: The "AU" grade is given to students electing to audit the course. All courses are available for audit registration. Students must indicate to the instructor by the census date that they are registered as an audit student. The "AU" indicates only that the student is registered for the class. He/she is not required to attend the class nor be evaluated and is not required to take exams or submit papers, etc. Consequently, the student does not receive credit for the audited course.
***** "I" - Incomplete: An "I" indicates that the course objectives are not yet fulfilled. It is the responsibility of the student to request, if needed, the assignment of an incomplete grade. the instructor's decision to authorize or not authorize an incomplete grade is final. Arrangement for the completion of the course must be made with the instructor prior to the assignment of the "I" grade. This agreement must be written on an Incomplete Course Form. The instructor may allow up to one semester for the student to complete missing requirements. "I" grades not changed by the end of the following semester will automatically become failing grades ("F").
***** "NG" - No Grade: Occasionally, emergencies cause an instructor to be delayed in reporting grades for a course which has been completed. While awaiting the reporting of grades, the temporary grade of "NG" is assigned.
If any student feels he/she may need an accommodation for a disability or special need, contact the instructor.
Communication skills: (writing, reading, and speaking)
Short written essays on assigned questions, in-class discussions, and lab reports will demonstrate proficiency in these skills.
Mathematical and scientific reasoning skills: Short written essays on assigned questions, in-class discussions, and lab reports will demonstrate proficiency in these skills.
Computer literacy: A word processor, spread sheets & graphics program may be used for some of the lab reports. But this skill will not be assessed in this class.
Foreign language skills: Not assessed in this course
Learning skills: Learning skills not only involve the comprehension and mastery of the course material, but also the ability to apply knowledge, analyze, synthesize, and evaluate information. Lab reports and essay questions will demonstrate mastery of these skills.
Research skills: Much of the work in this class requires some research. Short essays on assigned questions, in-class discussions, and lab reports will demonstrate proficiency.
Decision making and problem solving skills: Laboratory experiments and answering assigned questions will show proficiency in these skills.
Interpersonal & group interaction skills: Some of these skills will be applied in small group work sessions and some small group lab sessions. However, they will not be assessed in this course.
