A passing grade in the laboratory course is required in order to pass P114. Attendance at lectures and workshop sessions is required. Your active participation in the lectures and workshops will be assessed and are included in your grade. No make-up exams will be given except for cases documented by medical certification. Such exams may be orals. All suspected cases of cheating or plagiarism will be reported to the Board on Academic Honesty. To defuse problems associated with the competition for grades, final letter grades will be based on the absolute total score for the course, rather than using a grading curve. Thus in principle, you all could get high grades. Your grade record will be sent to you regularly by email. You are responsible for checking that your record is correct and for informing Professor Cline of errors.
