There are 5 in-class written exams, one at the end of each chapter in the book. The exams will reflect the activities done in and out of class. They will focus primarily on the content of the chapter, but, since language learning is cumulative, they may also include material from previous chapters. You are responsible for all previously learned material.
Each exam will count as 8% of your final grade. There will be no final exam.
Written exams will be completed online via Canvas, on the dates posted on the course calendar, and during class time.
VERY IMPORTANT: 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 exam.
During COVID-19, justified reasons 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 an exam. Your work schedule is not a justified reason to miss an exam. Personal trips or vacations are not a justified reason to miss an exam.
If you are a student athlete, in the national guard, or are missing an exam because of a UW mandatory academic activity, you need to provide your instructor with proper documentation.
