Evaluation Methods and Course Requirements: Opportunities to demonstrate achievement of the ILOs are provided through the following assessment methods and requirements: ILOs Assessment Method and Requirements A1, A2, A3, A4, B1, B2, B3 Exams and Assignments C1, C2, C3, C4 Exams and Assignments D1, D2, D3 Project and Presentation Mid Term exam 30% Home works 15% Project + homeworks 5% Final Exam 50% 23. Course Policies: A- Attendance policies: According to University regulations the maximum allowable absence 15% of number of lectures/semester B- Absences from exams and handing in assignments on time: • Every student is expected to completely adhere to the assignments and report strict deadlines, absolutely no exceptions will be given. على. لن يكون هناك امتحان تعويضي اال في حالة وجود عذر وحالة طارئة من المستشفىMid-Term •في حالة التغيب عن امتحان ال وحسب، وللمدرس الحق في قبول او رفض العذر،الطالب ابراز العذر لمدرس المادة في فتره ال تتجاوز الثالثة ايام من تاريخ االمتحان .التعليمات • Concerns or complaints should be expressed in the first instance to the module lecturer; if no resolution is forthcoming then the issue should be brought to the attention of the module coordinator (for multiple sections) who will take the concerns to the module representative meeting. Thereafter problems are dealt with by the Department Chair and if still unresolved the Dean and then ultimately the Vice President. For the final complaints, there will be a committee to review grading the final exam. C- Health and safety procedures: University regulations. D- Honesty policy regarding cheating, plagiarism, misbehavior: The honor code applies to all work turned in for this course including exams and assignments. It is important that you understand the solutions to all problems, and the best way to gain an understanding is to work them out and write them up by yourself. Hence the policy is that you must submit your own work. You may not share your work with other students, unless it is allowed as group. Violating the policy will be taken as a no submission state for the assignment. University regulations will be preserved at all times.
