Missed Marked Homework, Quizzes or Midterm Tests: If a Marked Homework assignment or Quiz is missed for any reason, the score is 0. However, Marked Homework assignments can be handed in early if you know you will be absent on the due date. Allowance for a missed Midterm Test may be granted in the following two circumstances: (a) prior notice of a valid, documented absence (e.g. out-of-town varsity athletic commitment) on the scheduled date; or (b) notification to the instructor within 72 hours of absence due to medical condition. Otherwise the score is 0. For missed Midterm Tests, original written documentation (for example a doctors note or letter from a coach) is required.
