Assignments

Student work will be assessed through a series of in-class activities and practical reporting assignments.

There are six grading periods during the semester. Students are responsible for completing all assignments between grading periods. Grading periods will be used to assess recent work and offer suggestions for the next round of assignments. Assignments at the end of the semester are weighted more heavily to give students a chance to experiment and develop new skills.

All assignments must be completed by the deadline. Unless specified otherwise, the weekly deadline for assignments is Sunday at 10 p.m.
