The ﬁnal grade for each speciﬁc assignment is based on correcPons as advised by the instructor.
If an emergency will prevent you from comple+ng assignments before the deadline, you should noPfy Prof. T. Banjo in advance.
How is A^endance determined and what percentage of your ﬁnal grade is A^endance? A^endance is determined by checking for parPcipaPon in the weekly Discussion Board and counts for 40% of the course grade.
The deadline for your ﬁrst Discussion Board post is Sunday, January 26, 2014 by 11:59 PM.
To receive full credit for your Discussion Board Par+cipa+on, you are required to make at least 3 posts per week on 3 diﬀerent days, with an iniPal response by Wednesday 11:59 PM, and responses to two classmates by Saturday 11:59 PM.
Why is it important to par+cipate in the Discussion Board? The Discussion Board accounts for all of the class interac+on among students: sugges+ons, accounts of diﬀerent experiences in using Photoshop, goals, experiments, and results. Par+cipa+on also accounts for a large (40%) por+on of the course grade.
10. Men+on 3 beneﬁts of comple+ng assignments before the due date 1. Avoidance of last-‐minute technical diﬃcul+es (i.e. loss of internet connec+on); 2. Opportunity for more detailed or more frequent feedback on assignment before ﬁnal submission; 3. Keeping Prof. T. Banjo’s stress levels down (grading twenty last-‐minute assignments = Not Fun)
11. What is the breakdown of your Final grade? 40%: Completed & Submi^ed Weekly Assignments 40%: Completed Weekly Discussion posts 10%: Completed & Submi^ed Mid Term Project 10%: Completed & Submi^ed Final Project 12. How would you check your grade for each assignment/week? To check for current grades, I would login to the course web page and use the “View Assignment / A^endance Grades” feature (pull-‐down menu). 13. Write a minimum 100 word mission statement which will guide you as you con+nue the semester.
Mission Statement: Spring Semester 2014 A be^er world is not inherited or discovered, but made... By hands which shape what must be created By eyes which see what must be acknowledged By backs which carry what must be moved By feet which walk to places we must go. To make that world, it must be seen clearly. To see it clearly, I must put aside anything which is false: ra+onaliza+on, delay, vanity, and doubt. Every word, every ac+on, every moment is a chance to build this world or bury it. I will be faithful to it, so that when my daughter asks me one day “What could you have done?” and “What did you do?” I will only have to give one answer.
