There are four quizzes and four written exams in this course, one per chapter. There will be no final exam.
The four quizzes count as 10% of your final grade. They will be 20 minutes long and will consist of multiple choice questions designed to test your knowledge of the grammar and vocabulary of the chapter. These quizzes are completed online, via Canvas, before the beginning of class, on the dates posted on the course calendar. You will have 23 hours to complete each quiz. Plan your calendar accordingly and make sure to complete the quizzes on time, whether you are in class or not on the date they are assigned.
The four exams count as 25% 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. Exams are completed in class, on the dates posted on the course calendar.
Make-ups will be given only in case of justified absences and, whenever possible, must be arranged with the teacher before the date of the quiz or exam.
