There are three quizzes and three written exams in this course, one per chapter. There will be no final exam.
The three quizzes count as 10% of your final grade. They will be 20 minutes long each and will consist of multiple choice questions designed to test your knowledge of the grammar and vocabulary of the chapter.
The three exams count as 20% of your final grade. They will be 50 minutes long and will have four sections: listening, vocabulary and grammar use, reading, and writing. The activities in each section will reflect the activities done in and out of class.
Quizzes and exams will be completed online, on the dates posted on the course calendar, and during class time.
Make-ups will be given only in case of properly documented, excused absences and must be arranged with the teacher before the date of the quiz or exam.
During COVID-19, justified reasons to request a make-up quiz or exam include: illness, internet outage, and taking care of dependents (sick family members, school-age children at home...).
Being on a different time zone is not a justified reason to miss a quiz or exam. Your work schedule is not a justified reason to miss a quiz or exam. Personal trips or vacations are not a justified reason to miss a quiz or exam.
