Syllabus Update

Please note that the following changes are made to my syllabus from last semester. This is to address accountability problems and to help students stay on track and learn to stay on track earlier in the semester, rather than waiting until the end to realize how far behind they are. The original policy was that all late work was accepted for up to 75% credit any time in the semester. The new policy is as follows.

Late Policy
  • Late work will only be accepted up to four weeks after it was due.
  • The late penalty is now 40% of the assignment’s value off the top.

Examples: 

  • A 10 point assignment turned in late that would have scored an 8 will earn a 4.
  • A 10 point assignment turned in late that would have scored 10 will earn a 6.

A late assignment that would earn zero credit after the penalty must be redone. For example, a 10 point assignment turned in late that would have earned a 3 will have to be redone. The original four week window still applies.

All excused absence, school event absences, and unexcused absences will follow the original policy as before. Please see my syllabus at erfurth.co/unified-syllabus for further details.
