Grading Scale:
90-100% = A (450-500)
80-89% = B (400-449)
70-79% = C (350-399)
60-69% = D (300-349)
Below 60% = F (<300)
Total Points: 500
Grade Determination:
Your grade will be based on points you received from
various assignments including lab reports, class attendance,
and exams. There will be no extra credit given in this
class.
Attendance:
The grades for this portion will be as follows:
1) unexcused absence – deduction of 10% of total course
points
2) unexcused absences – deduction of 20% of total course
points
3) unexcused absences – deduction of 30% of total course
points
4) or more unexcused absence – FAILED COURSE
5) If you are late to class 3 times that equals one unexcused
absence. For 6 it’s equal to 2 unexcused absences, etc.
Lab Exams:
The lab exams will primarily focus on material presented in lab with some reading
material included from your lab book. The exams will consist of a combination of multiple
choice, fill in the blank, short answer, and essay questions. Anyone arriving more than 10
minutes late for an exam will be asked to leave and will have to take the exam late with the 10%
penalty as per the make-up exam policy. For more detailed information on proper student
conduct please see the code of conduct in your course catalog.
Lab Reports:
Lab reports are assigned throughout the semester to help you understand the experiments better.
Refer to the schedule for the due dates on these reports. Reports are to be uploaded
in the drop box set up in mycourses by 11:30pm on the day they are
due. Once the drop box closes you will not be able to submit your
report and therefore will receive a zero. I will not accept emailed lab
reports.
** PLAGIARISM will NOT be tolerated; reports with ANY documented plagiarism will
be given a grade of “0”. You are to write your reports yourself not with anyone else, and
it needs to be in your own words. Also points will be deducted it you do not have in text
citations.
Unknown lab Report:
You will be given an unknown bacteria to identify towards the end of the semester. You will use
techniques learned in class to identify this unknown. You will then submit a comprehensive lab
report on this specimen. Again this report needs to be submitted to the drop box that has been set
up.
QUIZZES: There will be 5 quizzes throughout the semester that you will need to take on line.
The due dates to take the quizzes are listed in the schedule at the end of this document. The
quizzes will have 15 questions and you will have 45 minutes to take the quiz. You will have one
attempt so be sure you check all of your answers before you submit it.
Make-up Exams:
Any student missing a lab exam may take a make-up provided they have a legitimate
excuse for missing class (i.e. severe illness with doctor’s note, family emergency). All scores
on make-up exams will be reduced by 10% each time you need to take one. This penalty
applies to ANYONE taking a make-up, No Exceptions! The 10% penalty is additive, so the
first make-up is -10%, the 2nd -20%, the 3rd -30% etc… Make-up exams must be taken within
one week of the original test date and note that make-up exams may be of a different format than
the original.
Lab Attire: In this lab we are working with MICRO-ORGANISMS. Therefore it is important
that you wear the proper clothes. A LAB COAT IS REQUIRED.
NO OPEN TOED SHOES IN LAB EVER!!!….you do not want to spill any cultures on your
skin. We will discuss safety during the first lab period. Also, if you have long hair, please
have it pulled back, we will use Bunsen burners in this class and you don’t want to set
your hair on fire.
You need to wear a lab coat. Please put your name on the lab coat and bring a bag to
store it in.
At no time are you to bring food or beverages into the lab. If you enter the lab with food
or a beverage (whether it’s opened or not) you will be asked to leave the lab.
Grades Changes: Please follow the guidelines listed below if you feel that an answer on an
exam, quiz, homework, or other assignment has been erroneously marked incorrect. I will either
post a key or go over questions/answers in class with you for any assignments/quizzes/exams
that are given.
1) Please circle the answer in question and return to me within one week from the day
you receive the assignment/exam back.
2) I will review the appropriate answers and determine if your grade needs to be
adjusted. I will return your assignment/exam back to you within one week from the
time you give it to me.
3) The time frame therefore for changing a grade on any given assignment is TWO
WEEKS. If for some reason you are ill or otherwise engaged, you may make an
appointment with me, but the appointment needs to be made within the two week
time frame.
Please do not ask me during class time to review your papers for a grade change as there is no
time for me to assess the situation while in class.
Classroom Behavior:
Success in this and any college class requires good note taking, test taking , and study
skills. Please ask me for assistance with any of these areas. Do not wait until mid-term before
trying to improve your work. Start asking questions and looking for help early on if you need it.
In addition, attending class means more than just showing up. Come prepared to take notes, ask
questions, and listen. Please be considerate of other students as well as myself during lecture. It
is distracting to hear someone talking or laughing during lecture so please refrain from side
conversations during lecture. Students who continue to cause disruptions in class will be
asked to leave the classroom. For more detailed information on proper student conduct please
see the code of conduct in your course catalog.
Please turn off all beepers and cell phones while in class. Cell phones going off during class
are a distraction during lecture and exams. You will be given one warning if your cell phone
goes off during class before being asked to leave class for that period. If you need to use your
phone please do so outside class even if this is during a break time.
Finally, coming late to class is distracting to me and, more importantly, your fellow
students so please be on time for all class meetings. In addition, missing the first 10 minutes
of class means you will miss important announcements about the schedule, assignments, quizzes,
etc. If you do arrive late please enter the class and take your seat quietly. Do not ask students or
myself questions at this time or copy notes that you missed. You can ask questions or copy notes
after class.
ACADEMIC HONESTY:
St. Petersburg College has an academic honesty policy. It is your responsibility to be
familiar with the policies, rules and consequences of violations. Read about the policy at:
http://www.spcollege.edu/webcentral/admit/honesty/htm. There is no tolerance for cheating
and academic dishonesty. The penalty can range from a zero on that assignment or exam to
a grade of F in the class.
