Late Assignments (effective 10/3/2005)

Unless otherwise specified, assignments are due promptly at the start of class on the due date.  Assignments will often involve both an electronic and a written submission – both must be accomplished before the assignment is deemed submitted. 

 

Labs are normally due on Wednesday.  However, because reading quizzes are often due Wednesday as well, labs will now have a “free late Thursday” policy: you can turn in your lab late, with no penalty, up until the beginning of class on Thursday.  After this, the original policy is in effect – so after class starts on Thursday, your lab will be 25% off if accepted at all.  The table below shows this result.

 

Note:

1.        Please turn in your lab on Wednesday if it is ready.  If you turn it in via “free late Thursday,” it may not be graded as quickly as the other students’ labs.

2.        Only labs due on Wednesday have a “free Thursday late” policy (there may be different deadlines later in the semester).

3.        You may not work on your old lab in class on Thursday and then turn it in “on-time.” Labs must be received at beginning of class on Thursday or it is 25% late.

So this means that an assignment due on Wednesday will not be accepted after 0755 Friday, even with the “free Thursday late” policy.

Take-home reading quizzes will not be accepted late.
