Submission of assignments and grading
Be sure to turn in assignments and exams on time. I will grade assignments once a week. If your assignment is submitted after the weekly grading, I will grade it during the next grading period for our class.
File naming convention. To better manage the many files that will be transferred back and forth, always use the following naming convention for your files:
Example: student John Doe is sending in Assignment 5. Name the file: DoeJAssignment5.doc (or rtf).
File types. For the word processing documents, submit files with an extension of either .doc or .rtf only, to ensure that I can read them.
Files submitted without the right naming convention, or that are not in either a .doc or .rtf format, will be returned with a grade of 0 until they are corrected. They will be graded when returned properly. Note that papers submitted late because of these types of problems are subject to a deduction of points.
