Grading Policy
Grading Categories and Percentages: See the Grade Record Sheets in this packet. Plus/Minus grades will be assigned for the final grades.
Make-up Policy: Requests must be made no less than 30 minutes (if it is an emergency) before the tests or quizzes start and preferably at least one day beforehand. All make-ups must be taken during the lecturer’s or the TA’s office hours within two days after the regular ones are given. It is the student’s responsibility to resolve any schedule conflicts.
1. Tests: Only one make-up will be given during the semester without penalty. If you have a compelling reason to take a second make-up, it will result in a 20% deduction from the original score no matter what the reason might be. A third make-up will not be given.
2. Vocabulary Quizzes: Only one make-up will be given during the entire semester.
3. Pinyin Quizzes/Listening Tests: Make-ups will result in a 20% deduction from the original scores no matter what the reason for requesting the make-ups might be.
Quizzes/tests taken early due to individual students’ pre-scheduled activities are not considered make-ups. Requests for early quizzes/tests may or may not be granted, and must be made at least one week before the quizzes/tests are scheduled to take place.
Presentation:
1. Students who turn in the draft late will have 5 points deducted from their score.
2. Students who are unable to present on the day they are scheduled to present will have 10% deducted from their score.
Homework Policy:
1. No more than two (2) late written assignments and no more than two listening assignments will be accepted. Subsequent late assignments will result in a 10% deduction from the score. Homework past due for more than one week will not be accepted. If such late homework is accepted for compelling reasons, there will be a 20% deduction from the score.
2. Students who arrive at class without doing homework to be discussed that day will be considered absent.
3. You are strongly encouraged to install a Chinese word processor on your computer so that you can write homework drafts with the computer. Final version of the homework must be handwritten.
Attendance Policy: Attendance is mandatory.
1. Each student is allowed a maximum of four (4) absences without penalty. No excuses need to be given for these absences. Each subsequent absence will result in a deduction of 0.5 point from your final average score. Unless you can provide adequate evidence showing that you are ill for a period of time, which lasts longer than four days, no exceptions will be made.
2. Absence time (shorter than 10 minutes) is counted by the minute. Every 25 accumulated minutes is equal to ½ absence.
3. Being more than ten (10) minutes late will be considered ½ absence; being 20 minutes late will be considered one absence.
4. Eight (8) or more absences, the penalty-free ones included, during the semester will lower your semester grade by one grade, (e.g. A+/A will become A-; A- will become B+; B+ will become B, etc). Twelve (12) absences, the penalty-free ones included, will further lower your semester grade by one grade.
5. Fifteen (15) absences, the penalty-free ones included, will automatically result in an F grade for this course.
Scholastic Dishonesty:
1. Receiving answers for homework, exercises, or quizzes/tests from another person, whether that person belongs to the current CHI506 class or not, is considered an act of scholastic dishonesty, and will be reported to Office of the Dean of Students even if there is only circumstantial evidence.
2. Students who do not fully disclose their linguistic background in Mandarin Chinese on the first class day will be reported to the Office of the Dean of Students for an investigation of possible scholastic dishonesty. Any dispute between the lecturer and the student on this issue will be resolved in the Office of the Dean of Students.
3. Any other forms of cheating will be reported to Office of the Dean of Students.
Important Notes:
1. After each of the tests and quizzes has been graded, all students are strongly encouraged to visit the lecturer or the TA during office hours to discuss the mistakes. All tests will be kept in the department’s office until the end of the
following semester. After that, they will be destroyed.
2. Throughout the semester, the CHI506 class-related materials or information will be sent out via e-mails or be posted on the blackboard. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure that such materials/information can be received in a timely fashion.
3. Students with disabilities may request appropriate academic accommodations. Any student with a documented disability who requires academic accommodations should contact Services for Students with Disabilities at 471-6259 (voice) or 1-866-329-3986 (Video Phone) as soon as possible to request an official letter outlining authorized accommodations.
4. Final exam is tentatively scheduled on Thursday, December 10, (2:00-5:00 pm). But this schedule is subject to change.
Copyrights Information:
1. With the exception of the texts and reading texts in traditional characters, and the homework pages for characters, which were designed by Professor John Yin of University of Vermont, all the materials in this packet were designed and typed by Wen-Hua Teng, who is, therefore, the sole owner of the copyright of these materials.
2. Class-related materials that will be copied to individual student’s flash drive (required) are also copyrighted materials. Providing these materials to any individuals who do not belong to the current CHI506 (31465 & 31470 only) class without Wen-Hua Teng’s permission violates her copyrights.

Make-up Policy: Requests must be made no less than 30 minutes (if it is an emergency) before the tests or quizzes start and preferably at least one day beforehand. All make-ups must be taken during office hours within two days after the regular ones are given. It is the student’s responsibility to resolve any schedule conflicts.
1. Tests: Only one make-up will be given during the semester without penalty. If you have a compelling reason to take a second make-up, it will result in a 20% deduction from the original score no matter what the reason might be. A third make-up will not be given.
2. Vocabulary Quizzes: No more than two make-ups (one for each textbook) will be given during the entire semester.
3. Mid-term Exam/Essay Questions/Proverb Quiz: Make-ups will result in a 20% deduction from the original scores no matter what the reason for requesting the make-ups might be.
Quizzes/tests taken early due to individual students’ pre-scheduled activities are not considered make-ups. Requests for early quizzes/tests may or may not be granted, and must be made at least one week before the quizzes/tests are scheduled to take place.
Text Quizzes:
1. Text Quizzes are take-home quizzes. To discuss answers with a classmate, which would be considered an act of scholastic dishonesty, is strictly forbidden.
2. Only two late quizzes (but no more than one day late) will be accepted. Subsequent late quizzes will result in a 10% deduction from the original score.
Homework Policy:
1. No more than two (2) late assignments will be accepted. Subsequent late assignments will result in 10% deduction of the score. Homework past due for more than one week will not be accepted. If such late homework is accepted for compelling reasons, there will be a 20% deduction of the score.
2. Students who arrive at class without doing homework to be discussed that day will be considered absent.
Attendance Policy: Attendance is mandatory.
1. Each student is allowed a maximum of four (4) absences without penalty. No excuses need to be given for these absences. Each subsequent absence will result in a deduction of 0.5 point from your final average score. Unless you can provide adequate evidence showing that you are ill for a period of time, which lasts longer than four days, no exceptions will be made.
2. Absence time (shorter than 10 minutes) is counted by the minute. Every 25 accumulated minutes is equal to 1/2 absence.
3. Being more than ten (10) minutes late will be considered 1/2 absence; being 20 minutes late will be considered one absence.
4. Eight (8) or more absences, the penalty-free ones included, during the semester will lower your semester grade by one grade, (e.g. A+/A will become A-; A- will become B+; B+ will become B, etc). Twelve (12) absences, the penalty-free ones included, will further lower your semester grade by one grade.
5. Fifteen (15) absences, the penalty-free ones included, will automatically result in an F grade for this course.
Scholastic Dishonesty:
1. Receiving answers for homework, exercises, or quizzes/tests from another person, whether that person belongs to the current CHI612 class or not, is considered an act of scholastic dishonesty, and will be reported to Office of the Dean of Students even if there
is only circumstantial evidence.
2. Any other forms of cheating will be reported to Office of the Dean of Students.
Important Notes:
1. After each of the tests and quizzes has been graded, all students are strongly encouraged to visit the lecturer during office hours to discuss the mistakes. All tests will be kept in the department’s office until the end of the following semester. After that, they will be destroyed.
2. Throughout the semester, the CHI612 class-related materials or information will be sent out via e-mails or be posted on the blackboard. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure that such materials/information can be received in a timely fashion.
3. Students with disabilities may request appropriate academic accommodations. Any student with a documented disability who requires academic accommodations should contact Services for Students with Disabilities at 471-6259 (voice) or 1-866-329-3986 (Video Phone) as soon as possible to request an official letter outlining authorized accommodations.
4. Final exam is tentatively scheduled on Friday, December 11, (2:00-5:00 pm). But this schedule is subject to change.
