Q: Why don't you give partial credit on quizzes?
A: It has been a long-standing policy that I (the teacher) don't give partial credit. However, as an incentive, I do allow students to use their homework and always allowed quiz corrections (in the correct format). The quiz corrections will allow the student earn half the points they missed. They are always due on test day.
Q: I am going to be absent for your test. When can I make it up?
A: If you are leaving for a school-related event, it is your responsibility to try and take the test early. This way, you will not gain an unfair advantage of study time. Otherwise, be prepared to take the make-up test. If you are ill or have an appointment, it is YOUR responsibility to provide the needed documentation and turn into the attendance office. It will ensure us that you are not truant. You will be able to take a similar test that your fellow classmates took.
