Grading

Grade

Computation

Laboratory accounts for 25 % of the course grade.  A minimum grade of 55 % in lab required in order to pass the course.

The lab grade will be apportioned as follows:

 

Experiments = 35 %  To obtain credit for the scheduled experiments, the student will attend the designated lab period, perform the exercise and submit a report through the appropriate dropbox in iLearn.  Do not submit any hardcopy reports to your instructor or TA.

Products = 15 %  In experiments where a product is generated, the product sample will be turned in and evaulated with respect to yield and purity.

Notebook = 20%  The notebook is required at every lab session and must be kept current for minimum credit.  Pre-lab duplicate copies must be turned in at the beginning of each experiment for 2/5 of this credit.  Duplicate copies of daily laboratory records must be turned in at the end of each lab period for another 2/5 credit.  Notebooks will be subject to unannounced examination and evaluation at any time during the semester, for the remaining 1/5 credit.

Lab Quizzes = 30 % Three to four tests covering both practical and theoretical topics from the scheduled experiments will be given.  Relevant material from class lecture may also be included.  Occasional “pop” quizzes may also be included for a portion of this grade.

Make-Up – (See Notes 1 & 2) These periods are set aside only for students who were absent from a scheduled experiment due to illness or other unavoidable conflict.  Make-ups are NOT for the purpose of improving an unsatisfactory grade.  Students that miss an experiment should notify dcrouse the week before the scheduled make-up, stating which section they will attend and which exercise they will be attempting, so that a dropbox extension may be posted.  Make-up reports must be submitted to the dropbox within one week after the make-up period.  No more than one make-up experiment (per make-up week) may be carried out without special permission from the lab instructor.
