Latest Update:  4-28-2006

Can you believe that May 1 (and the last day of class) is Monday?

I hope the semester has gone well for all of you. As you wrap things up over the next week, here are a few things to keep in mind:

bulletTo the extent possible please hold your final exams during the scheduled final exam times. You will find the times listed on page 20 of the SPRING COURSE SCHEDULE BULLETIN. If you are teaching MATH 0099, you need to wrap up the class a little early to allow for COMPASS testing.

 

bulletGrades are due no later than 5:30pm on Monday, May 8. Please enter the grades on-line through the THE SCORE. If you have problems accessing the THE SCORE, contact Simon Grist (sgrist@highlands.edu) or Sandie Davis (sdavis@highalnds.edu) or see the part-time website (www.highlands.edu/subwebs/ptmath) for more instructions.

 

bulletWhile you don't need to turn in a hard copy of your grades, it's probably a good idea to keep a hard copy of your gradebook and/or an electronic copy in case there are questions about your grades during the next semester or two.

 

bulletIf you are teaching MATH 0099, please work with Walter Cotter, Janet Doster, and/or Phyllis Chunn to identify which of your students are eligible for COMPASS testing and inform your students about COMPASS testing dates and times.

 

bulletYou may assign a D as a grade in any class except MATH 0099. In order for a student to be eligible for COMPASS testing, a student needs to earn the equivalent of a C average for the class. If you feel comfortable awarding the student a C for the course, then the student is eligible for testing. No grades of D are assigned in MATH 0099.

 

bulletFor those of you teaching over the summer, the first day of class is Monday, June 5. The last day of class for full session classes is Friday, July 28 with exams scheduled on July 31 and August 1. Note that both July 3 and July 4 are holidays. The college will be closed both days.

 

bulletI'll be in contact in the next few weeks about fall teaching assignments.
