Chinese 506                                                     Grading  Policy

 

All CHI506 grades are calculated numerically throughout the semester. For transcript purpose, letter grades are given at the end of the semester according to the conversion chart below:

 

A+ = 97-100,   A = 94-96,   A- = 90-93                     B+ = 87-89,    B = 84-86,   B- = 80-83

C+ = 77-79,     C = 74-76,   C- = 70-73                      D+= 67-69,     D = 64-66,   D- = 60-63                          F = 0-59 

 

Lesson Tests                     35%                                        Vocabulary Quizzes                                      15%

Writings                           10%                                        Oral Quizzes                                                               15%

 Reading Quizzes               5%                                              Final (Written 70%,Skit 30%)                      20%          

 

You can drop the scores of     2 Tests (You can not drop T.14.)

                                                1 Oral Quiz (You can not drop any Reading Quiz.)     

                                                2 Vocabulary Quizzes (1 Quiz5 = Q5a + Q5b)

 

No make-up tests or quizzes will be given and all missed tests or quizzes are counted as zero.    

 

Note: Grading of all oral performance is based mainly on “tones”. However, other factors, such as fluency or accuracy performed below average, will affect your grade.                                       

 

1. Attendance: the following rules also apply to students of "pass-fail" grade.

 

You are allowed a maximum of 4 " free" absences during the semester.  These 4 days are set aside for your illness, social obligations, official duties, job interviews or any other things that you must attend to, so use them wisely. 

 

                1.  Each subsequent absence will result in a deduction of 0.5 point from your

                     semester score. 

                2.  If you are absent 8 times (including the four "free" ones), you will be penalized

                     one letter grade (e.g., AàB) at the end of the semester.   

                3.  If you are absent 15 times (including the "free" ones), you will get an "F" for the

                     course automatically.   

                4.  Missing 10 minutes of each class (by either arriving late or leaving early) will be

                     viewed as a  1/2  absence.  Missing ½  of the class  is viewed as a full absence.

 

                Note:1  It is not your teacher's responsibility to remind you of your attendance records.

                         2. If you have only one absence for the semester, you can drop one more score

                                of your choice, and if you have no absence, you can drop two more scores

                                (only one in each category).  You cannot drop any “Reading Quiz’ grade.

                       3. In the cases of students’ needing extended medical care, adjustments to the above

                           attendance policy will be made when an official doctor’s notice is provided. The

                           doctor’s notice should include specific information on dates and reasons of absences.

                           It must be brought in immediately after the related absences.

 

YOU NEED TO MAKE A 'C' OR ABOVE TO TAKE CHI507. Students on Pass/Fail status are not eligible to take CHI507.

 

2. Homework

 

    Homework should be turned in at the beginning of each class meeting.  Those turned in at the end of the class

    will be considered late.  A 10-point deduction will take place for each extra day taken beyond the due date.  Late

    homework should be turned in within a week of the due date to receive a grade.. Late works turned in after a week

    will only be corrected, not graded. You will receive a zero for that assignment.  Late corrections on homework

    should also be turned in within a week to receive a grade.

 

 

    There are two versions for character writing: the traditional version is used in Taiwan ; the simplified

    version is used in Mainland China; Hong Kong uses both versions.  You can only choose one version for writing

    and characters written in the over version will be counted as mistakes.  However, you are required to recognize 

    both versions as they both will be used in tests and quizzes.

412K                                GRADING POLICY                                                       Spring 2010     CHEN

 

All 412K grades are calculated numerically throughout the semester. For transcript purpose, letter grades are given at the end of the semester according to the conversion chart below:

 

A = 94-100,          A- = 90-93                                     B+ = 87-89,    B = 84-86,   B- = 80-83

C+ = 77-79,     C = 74-76,   C- = 70-73                      D+= 67-69,     D = 64-66,   D- = 60-63                          F = 0-59 

 

Class Preparation & Participation is mandatory. Grading instruction is provided separately.

 

Vocabulary Quizzes (8)                         8%                    Listening Quizzes (3)                         12%

Reading Fluency Test (5)                      6%                     Dialogue & Oral Tests                         6%

Tests (4)                                                40%                    Final Exam                                         16%

Homework#2 (8)                                  12%                     

 

Vocabulary Quizzes:  These quizzes are conducted at the beginning of the class for 10 minutes. At the end of the semester, the lowest score will be dropped. Absolutely NO MAKE-UPS.

 

TESTS : With a legitimate reason given at least one day before the scheduled test, each  student is entitled to ONE make-up test.  If no legitimate reason is provided, a 10% deduction from your make-up score will be implemented. The make-up test must be taken within 3 days after the originally scheduled test time.  In case of an emergency, the arrangement for a make-up test must be made as soon as possible. A second make-up will not be possible.

 

All make-ups must be taken during the lecturer’s or the TA’s office hours.

 

Homework Assignments

            Homework #1:  All assigned homework #1 must be completed by hand before coming to class, but they do not have to be turned in. See next page for “Preparation” grade received for Homework#1.  If you wish to have it checked, you are required to turn in the character version on or before the day Homework #2 for the same lesson is due.  However, character mistakes will not be corrected; corrections will only be made on grammatical errors. 

            Homework #2:  All assigned Homework #2 must be written by hand, and are due on the next class day after the answers are discussed.  After that, the homework will not be accepted and you will receive a zero (0) for that assignment.   

 

            On HW # 2 discussion days, students who come to class without having already completed HW # 2 in character will be considered absent and receive a “ zero” as the preparation grade for that day.

 

Fluency tests: These tests will be conducted in classroom on the days when the texts are to be read.  Guidelines and the evaluation sheet can be found on p. 64 in this packet.

 

Listening quizzes

            A.  Each student is entitled to one (1) make-up listening quiz provided that there is a legitimate reason.  If no legitimate reason is provided, a 10% deduction from your make-up score will be implemented. The make-up should be taken within 3 days of the originally scheduled quiz time. A second make-up quiz will not be allowed.

            B.  At the end of the semester, the lowest score of Listening Quiz will be dropped.

Dialogue Test:  This test will take place in class.  The dialogues included in this test are on

p. 13, p. 20, p. 37, p. 44, p. 49 of this packet.  Each student will say two (2) dialogues with two different partners.  The two dialogues will be drawn randomly at the time of the test.  The evaluation will be based on the following three categories: grammar accuracy, pronunciation, and fluency.

 

** Transferred Chinese heritage students in 412K: See  “Adjustment of 412K Oral Assignments” on BB.

 

 

Attendance: the following rules also apply to students of "pass-fail" grade.

            A. You are allowed a maximum of three (3) absences without penalty during the semester.  Each subsequent absence will incur a penalty of 0.5 point deduction from your end of semester grade.  You must use these three penalty-free absences wisely and carefully (e.g., doctor's appointments, job interviews, family reunion, car problems, oversleeping, studying for another class, being unable to do Homework #2, etc.).  Unless you can provide adequate evidence that you are ill for a period of time, which lasts longer than three (3) days, no exceptions will be made.

            B. Being more than ten (10) minutes late will be considered a half absence.  On the day when answers of Homework #2 are discussed, being more than 5 minutes late will be considered a half absence.

            C. More than seven (7) absences, the three penalty-free ones included, during the semester will lower your semester grade by one full grade, with 10 points deducted from the final numeric grade. (Ex. Aà B, BàC…)    .

            D. Twelve (12) absences, the three ones included, will automatically result in an F grade for this course.

 

CLASS PREPARATION & PARTICIPATION: Students are required to prepare for and participate in each lecture and drill section following the Syllabus and Homework Schedule.  Based on individual preparation and performance in class, students are given one of the following flat grades for each lesson period: 95, 85, 75, 65, 55. At the end of the semester all preparation and participation grades are averaged and each student’s final semester average will be adjusted based on the following chart.

 

             A+, A,         -------------    +1.5                             A-     -------------------   +0.5

             B+, B,   B-      ----------     +0                               C+, C , C-       ---------   -1

             D+, D, D-        ---------      -1.5                             F       -------------------    -2

 

MOBILE PHONES MUST BE TURNED OFF DURING CLASSTIME.

 

SCHOLASTIC DISHONESTY:

  1. Copying another student’s work is considered an act of scholastic dishonesty. The student who does the copying will receive a “zero” for the assignment, while the other party will receive a 50% deduction of the original score. Sharing of answers of HW#2 with another student who was absent on the discussion day is also an act of copying. Any dispute will be forwarded to the Office of the Dean of Students.
  2. Collaboration on any homework assignment is considered an act of scholastic dishonesty. Both or all students involved will receive a 50% deduction of the Homework score.
  3. Passing information from one class to another is an act of scholastic dishonesty. It will be reported to the Office of the Dean of Students. ** Do not accept answers of homework from previous 412K students.  Do not pass homework answers to future 412K students.
  4. Any forms of cheating  (along with those who commit it) will be reported to the

      Office of the Dean of Students.

All students can drop the scores of   1 set of Vocabulary/General Quiz.

Only non-heritage students without China/Taiwan study abroad experience can drop 1 Dictation score and 1 more Vocabulary/General Quiz score.

 

All missed works are counted as zero. To avoid receiving zeros, special arrangements can be made prior to the due date.  For late assignments, 5 Points will be taken off for each late day after the due day. Late assignments after the 2nd class from the due date will not be accepted. Penalty for overdue Midterm and Final Presentation drafts are specified on syllabus. 

           

Attendance:     1. To promote “students supporting students”, prompt attendance is required for all Oral Presentation

                              days. Absence on these days will result in a  “zero” on your assignment, even if you have done  the

                              written and/or the oral works. Lateness on these days will result in grade penalty.

                          2.  You are allowed to have 2 absences on non-presentation days during the semester. These 2 days are set

                                aside for illness, social obligations, job  interviews, or any other things you must attend to.

                                Each subsequent absence will result in a 1 point deduction from your final semester grade.  Bring in

                                an official letterhead document from the organization for which extended/extra absences are needed to

                               make prior arrangements. Such documents are also required in all other special arrangements in regard

                                to this attendance policy. Emergencies will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

                           3.  If you are absent more than 5 times (including the 2 absences mentioned above), you will receive an

                               “F” as the semester grade.

  1. Missing 10 minutes of class, by arriving late or leaving early, is considered as a ½ absence.

 

Homework and Assignments

  1. Specific instructions will be given for each oral/ written assignment. Check the course syllabus for due dates. See above for penalty for late works.
  2. 4 Venn Diagrams on specific topics are due on Culture Talk Days according to syllabus.
  3. Homework assignments and all first drafts of Resume, essays and written versions of presentations  are done by HAND. No electronic version.
  4. All final written versions of Resume,  mid-term and final PPT presentations are to be typed, printed and submitted on time along with all previous drafts.

 Please use font size 14, double-spaced, for easy and clear correction.

  1. All slides and the final written version of the Final PowerPoint Project are required to be typed,

 printed in COLOR, bound into a booklet with front and back covers.

  1. Do not mix the two versions of characters in handwriting, nor in word processing. Excessive mistakes

 in character selection in word  processing will affect your grades.

  1. 7.      **Mistakes are expected and allowed. Homework should be done individually. It is scholastic 

 dishonesty to get native speakers of Chinese involved in your works.

  1. **Requirements and grading for students may vary, depending on  individual Chinese study

 background: heritage, non-heritage, China/Taiwan study abroad experience and the length of stay. Instruction will be given.

 

 

Letter and Numeric Grades: 

 

All CHI326 grades are calculated numerically throughout the semester. For transcript purpose, letter grades are given at the end of the semester according to the conversion chart below:

 

A = 94-100,     A- = 90-93                                          B+ = 87-89,    B = 84-86,   B- = 80-83

C+ = 77-79,     C = 74-76,   C- = 70-73                      D+= 67-69,     D = 64-66,   D- = 60-63                          F = 0-59 

 

For many assignments and presentations, you will be given letter grades. For the calculation purpose, letter grades will be converted to numeric grades according to the following chart:        

     A+ = 97        A = 94          A- = 91                              B+ = 87        B = 84          B- = 81

     C+ = 77        C = 74          C- = 71                              D+ = 67        D = 64          D- = 61

     F = 57         All Missed Works = 0  

 

Tips for Success

 

In the class of Business Chinese, the teacher is only a facilitator who guides and provides opportunities to help students achieve the intermediate level of language proficiency in all four language skills. We stress on Business Vocabulary Building, Oral Discussions/Presentations and Written Practices using business language.  Students are expected to “invest” time and energy in preparation before coming to our discussions for each lesson.  Listening to the CDs /online materials prior to class will definitely help the class discussion grade.

 

Heritage and non-heritage students are expected to respect and help each other in all activities required for the class.

Chinese 604    Fall 2009          GRADING POLICY 

 

CHINESE 604 AND 506 MAY NOT BOTH BE COUNTED; CHINESE 604 AND 507 MAY NOT BOTH BE COUNTED. 

DESIGNED FOR STUDENTS WHO UNDERSTAND OR SPEAK BUT DO NOT READ OR WRITE MANDARIN CHINESE. 

PREREQUISITE: RESULTS ON THE PLACEMENT EXAMINATION IN CHINESE THAT INDICATE THAT THE 

STUDENT IS INELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE CREDIT FOR CHINESE 507. IF THE STUDENT IS ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE 

CREDIT BY EXAMINATION FOR CHINESE 506, THIS CREDIT MUST NOT APPEAR ON THE STUDENT'S RECORD. 

 

Students with disabilities may request appropriate academic accommodations from the Division of Diversity and 

Community Engagement, Services for Students with Disabilities, 471-6259(Voice) or 1-866-329-3986 

(Video Phone) as soon as possible to request an official letter outlining authorized accommodations. 

 

All CHI604 grades are calculated numerically throughout the semester. For transcript purpose, letter grades are 

given at the end of the semester according to the conversion chart below:  

 

A+ = 97-100,   A = 94-96,   A- = 90-93                     B+ = 87-89,    B = 84-86,   B- = 80-83 

C+ = 77-79,     C = 74-76,   C- = 70-73                      D+= 67-69,    D = 64-66,   D- = 60-63                 F = 0-59   

 

Lesson Tests                 40%                        Homework (writing & translation) 20% 

Reading Quizzes    10%                         Vocabulary Quizzes   10% 

Skit      5%      Final  Exam     15%  

 

1. Attendance: the following rules also apply to students of "pass-fail" grade. 

 

    You are allowed a maximum of 4 " free" absences during the semester.  These days are set aside for your illness, 

social obligations, official duties, job interviews or any other things that you must attend to, so use them wisely.   

 

 1.  Each subsequent absence will result in a deduction of 0.5 point from your semester score.   

    2.  If you are absent 8 times (including the four "free" ones), you will be penalized one letter grade (e.g., 

A?B) at the end of the semester.   

 3.  If you are absent 15 times (including the "free" ones), you will get a "F" for the course automatically.  

 4.  Missing 10 minutes of each class (by either arriving late or leaving early) will be viewed as a 1/2  

absence.  If you are 20 minutes late, it is viewed as a full absence. 

 

Note: 1   It is not your teacher's responsibility to remind you of your attendance records. 

          2.  If you have only one absence for the semester, you can drop one more score of your choice. If you have no 

absence, you can drop two more scores (only one in each category).  You cannot drop any “Reading Quiz’ grade. 

          3.  In the cases of students’ needing extended medical care, adjustments to the above attendance policy will be 

made when an official doctor’s notice is provided. The doctor’s notice should include specific information on dates 

and reasons of absences.  It must be brought in immediately before or after the related absences. 

 

                YOU NEED TO MAKE A 'C' OR ABOVE TO TAKE CHI612. 

 

2. Homework: Homework should be turned in at the beginning of each class. A daily10-point deduction of up to 

two days will take place when written assignments are turned in late. Assignments past due by more than 2 days 

will not be accepted and will be counted as "zero".  Assignments due during absences will not suffer this grade 

deduction, if they are turned in immediately after the absences. No late Translation homework will be accepted.  

Points will be deducted when corrections from homework of the previous lesson are not completed. 

 

There are two versions of Chinese characters: the traditional version is used in Taiwan; the simplified version is 

used in Mainland China; Hong Kong uses both versions.  You can only choose one version for writing for all works 

in CHI604. Characters written in the other version will be counted as mistakes.  However, recognition of  both 

versions is required as they both will be used in tests and quizzes.  

 

SCHOLASTIC DISHONESTY: Copying, sharing, collaborating on any homework and passing/ receiving 

information from other CHI604 classes are all considered acts of scholastic dishonesty.  Students involved in such 

activities will be penalized. Any dispute will be forwarded to the Office of the Dean of Students. 

 

3. Tests & Quizzes: You can drop the scores of 1 Vocabulary Quiz and 2 Tests.     

    No make-up tests or quizzes will be given and all missed tests or quizzes are counted as zero.  

  A. ***Regular Reading Quizzes in class (5%)  If you are late to class and miss the quiz at the beginning, you’ll

Vocabulary Quizzes:  These quizzes are conducted at the beginning of the class for 10 minutes. 

Absolutely no make-ups. At the end of the semester, the 3 lowest scores will be dropped. 

 

TESTS : With a legitimate reason given at least one day before the scheduled test, each  student is 

entitled to ONE make-up test.  The make-up test must be taken within 3 days after the originally 

scheduled test is given.  In case of an emergency, the arrangement for a make-up test must be made as 

soon as possible. A second make-up will not be possible. 

At the end of the semester, the lowest test score will be dropped. All make-ups must be taken during the 

lecturer’s or the TA’s office hours.  

 

HOMEWORK:   

1. Students are required to prepare a notebook for the writing of HW #1 and HW#2 of each 

lesson in characters. Coming to class unprepared will result in receiving an “ F” for the class 

preparation grade on HW discussion days. 

2. HW#2 must be re-written in characters by hand in the designated character writing papers 

attached at the end of the 412L packet. Neatness is important. Points may be deducted due to 

sloppiness.   The re-written HW#2 is due on the next day after the answers are discussed in 

class. No more than two late HW#2s will be accepted during the semester. After that, you 

will receive a “zero” for all missing assignments. Homework past due by more than one 

week will not be accepted. 

3. ** Students who are more than 5 minutes late for HW#2 discussion days will be considered 

0.5 absent. Students who come to class that day without completing HW#2 in characters in 

advance will be considered absent.  

4. The five listening homework assignments must be turned in on time according to schedule. 

Only one late (no more than one week late) listening assignment will be accepted.  At the end 

of the semester, the lowest listening homework score will be dropped. 

Go to  http://dase.laits.utexas.edu to do CHI412L Listening Homework. 

 

ORAL EXAM:   This exam is done in the classroom. See Packet PP.45-49 for details.  No make-up. 

 

DIALOGUE TEST:  This test is done in the classroom. Dialogues are on PP. 50, 51, 53, 55, 56, 57 of 

                                      the packet. No make-up. 

CLASS ACTIVITY: Before each class activity day, students should preview content of these activities  

                                     found in PP.50-56. Be ready to communicate with a partner in Chinese.  This is a 

 

                                    chance to practice your Chinese oral skill. You might be asked to conducted the 

                                    conversation in front of the class at the end of the period. 

 

CLASS PREPARATION & PARTICIPATION: Students are required to prepare for and participate in 

each lecture and drill section following the Syllabus and Homework Schedule.  Based on individual 

preparation and performance in class, students are given one of the following flat grades for each lesson 

period: 95, 85, 75, 65, 55. At the end of the semester all preparation and participation grades are averaged 

and each student’s final semester average will be adjusted based on the following chart.  

 

             A+, A,         -------------    +1.5                             A-     -------------------   +0.5 

             B+, B,   B-      ----------     +0                               C+, C , C-       ---------   -1 

             D+, D, D-        ---------      -1.5                             F       -------------------    -2 

 

ATTENDENCE: the following rules also apply to students of "pass-fail" grade. 

 

1. You are allowed a maximum of 3 absences without penalty during the 

semester for appointments, interviews, car problems, etc.  Each subsequent absence will 

result in a deduction of 0.5 point from your final semester grade. 

2. Being more than 10 minutes late for class will be considered a ½ absence. On days when 

HW#2 are discussed, being late for more than 5 minutes is considered a 0.5 absence. 

3. Having more than 7 absences, with the 3 penalty-free ones included, will result in a final 

semester letter grade deduction, with 10 points deducted from the final numeric grade . (Ex. 

A? B, B?C…)     

4. Having more than 12 absences, with the 3 penalty-free ones included, the student will receive 

an “F” as the final semester grade.  

 

MOBILE PHONES MUST BE TURNED OFF DURING CLASSTIME. 

 

SCHOLASTIC DISHONESTY:  

1. Copying another student’s work is considered an act of scholastic dishonesty. The student who 

does the copying will receive a “zero” for the assignment, while the other party will receive a 

50% deduction of the original score. Sharing of answers of HW#2 with another student who was 

absent on the discussion day is also an act of copying. Any dispute will be forwarded to the 

Office of the Dean of Students. 

2. Collaboration on any homework assignment is considered an act of scholastic dishonesty. Both or 

all students involved will receive a 50% deduction of the Homework score. 

3. Passing information from one class to another is an act of scholastic dishonesty. It will be 

reported to the Office of the Dean of Students. ** Do not accept answers of homework from 

previous 412L students.  Do not pass homework answers to future 412L students. 

4. Any forms of cheating  (along with those who commit it) will be reported to the  

      Office of the Dean of Students. 

 

TIPS FOR SUCCESS: 

1. Visit  http://dase.laits.utexas.edu  regularly and listen to class materials online. 

2. After each test, exam or quiz, students should meet with TAs for mistakes.  

3. Check emails regularly.  Your teachers will communicate with you frequently.
