Grading will be based on homework and several take-home projects. Each project and thecombined homework assignments will have equal weight. Unexcused non-attendance of classes may reduce your final grade up to one letter.
All homework assignments and projects are take-home assignments, and are due on the date specified. With prior permission from me, you may turn in turn homework assignments and projects after the due date, and received full credit. Without prior permission from me, late assignments and projects will not be graded.
All homework assignments are take-home assignments, and students may work together or discuss these assignments. However, each student must submit his/her own own work which demonstrates the ability to complete the assignment independently.
All projects are take-home assignments, and all work on these projects must be independent. Working together on projects is not permitted.
Several students have inquired about the possibility of not attending class, and instead viewing the recordings, while keeping up with the homework assignments and the projects. Here is my policy on this:
Stat 474 meets at regularly scheduled times. The only difference between this class and a traditional class is its online format. If this class was a traditional class taught in a classroom, and you had a conflict with another class you wish to take, you would be not be asking me this question. I expect ALL students to attend every scheduled class. If a situation arises where you cannot attend one or more classes, you may petition me to excuse you, and you can take advantage of the recording of the class to keep up with the material.
