Late Assignments:  LATE ASSIGNMENTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.   All assignments are due at the beginning of class unless otherwise noted in the syllabus.  Only students with an excused absence (doctor’s note required) will not be faulted for a late assignment.  However, the assignment must be made up by the next class period following the absence, or the late policy will apply.  Those who have skipped class and do not have acceptable documentation of illness or family emergency will not have this grace period.  Their assignments will be graded as late regardless of the absence.

NOTE: You are responsible for any changes to the project/assignment specifications made orally in class.  Please pay attention when projects are  being reviewed, ask ahead of time if you want to get started early and find out if you missed anything when absent.  

Performance Level:  To obtain an “A” in this course, the student must maintain accuracy.  In addition, every project is to be on time, with no more than 2 absences.  Only the highest-level students will receive an “A”.  Simply being present and turning in assignments does not “entitle” one to an “A”.  Nor does it “entitle” one to any other passing grade.  Only absolute excellence in work and a terrific attitude as well as other factors earns one an “A”.  Even just to receive a passing grade will require a lot of hard work and diligence to meet the requirements of the course and the assignments.  A passing grade does not mean that the project was merely completed, but that it was also deemed acceptable by the instructor and met ALL of the guidelines.     

Assignments

Tests:  Students are required to take all tests.  Exams will cover material from the textbook, lecture, and the Textile Mania CD.  Makeup exams will only be given if the student has a documented absence.  All makeup exams will be in essay form.

Homework:  Homework will be from the Textile Mania CD.  I will post questions for you to answer that relate to the material on your CD.  You will follow the directions listed on the homework assignment, listing which unit you should reference.  Students will find each homework assignment on the class website.  Each homework assignment will be emailed to the instructor by the beginning of the class period on the day it is due.
