Exams and assignments will be done individually and grades assigned on an individual basis. Further, students not already familiar with the CSU Honor Pledge should review this clear and simple pledge and always adhere to it.
Midterm and Finals: Make-up exams are only given for extraordinary circumstances (e.g., illness, family emergency). Students must consult with the instructor as soon as possible, preferably before the start of the exam. Course examination dates are listed in the syllabus; be aware of them and plan accordingly.
Projects: Unless otherwise specified, programming assignments are to be submitted electronically through Canvas. Specifics will be included in each assignment. Always check the assignment page for due dates and late policies.
|Midterm Exams||Week 8|
|Final Exams||Week 15|
Midterms and final exams will be done as on-line quizzes
