I hope you all had a satisfying Thanksgiving and are enjoying breathing again.

As noted below, there will be three test-taking opportunities during finals week. Thursday is our regularly scheduled final period.  The times and locations are as follows:

Tuesday, December 11th Mendocino 3000 10:30-12
Wednesday, December 12th Douglass Hall 109 10:30-12
Thursday, December 13th Douglass Hall 110 10:15-12:15
The Tuesday and Wednesday slots will require sign-up.

The tests will be graded on the day they are taken, and it will be possible for you to take tests on each day. However, it will not be possible to take more than one test during any given period.

Remember, there are no tutoring hours available during finals week.

Please read previous posts for campus-closure-related changes to syllabus. 

Beginning 11/27 test taking during tutoring hours is no longer restricted to tests that are behind the cut-off date. Anyone may test during tutoring hours. Please note, however, that you need to sign up in advance. Kris does not routinely carry copies of all the tests.

Please see the previous post before reading this one.

In consideration of the fact that we are losing yet another day (no class on 11/20) I am further adjusting the attendance requirements. The peer tutoring adjustment remains the same, but I will be sure that tutoring opportunities are available to everyone who wants them during our last four meeting. The final grade adjustment remains the same as well, however I will be sure to provide at least three testing opportunities during finals week.

In consideration of the impact of campus closure, I am adjusting the course requirements as below. The first table contains the current requirements from the syllabus. The second table contains the adjusted requirements. This is subject to further adjustment should we experience further closures during the rest of the semester.

Classes have been cancelled for Thursday 11/15.

This will necessitate some other changes to the course schedule, which I need to think about, but will post here by Friday. 

I hope you are all doing ok.

There will be no class on Tuesday November 13th. President Nelson has closed campus due to poor air quality.
The attendance and peer tutoring tally has been updated on the schedule page.

Thursday, November 8, 2018

All tests taken today have been returned.

Tuesday is the cut-off date for Module 5.

Tuesday, November 6, 2018

All tests taken today have been graded. I am using different equipment and the tests are being saved under a different naming convention. Look for today's date in the beginning of the file name.

To be a peer tutor on Thursday you must have passed Module 7.

Friday, November 2, 2018

I will not be in class on Tuesday, but your tutor Kris McCandless will be there to help you study and to distribute tests in the usual way. 

Tests taken on Tuesday will be returned either Thursday evening or Wednesday morning.
