Weekly Responses

February 28, 2013

It’s been brought to my attention that some cadets have misunderstood the part of the course I’ve been calling Weekly Responses. Here’s what it says on the course syllabus:

Weekly Responses are worth up to 300 of the 1,000 available points in this course.

  • Weekly response are based on the reading and film viewing for each given week. They must be addressed to the prompt provided by the instructor.
  • Weekly responses must be between 300-500 words.
  • Weekly responses must be submitted to the course blog no less than 24 hours prior to the beginning of the first T-day of the week.
  • For the address of the course blog, see the first page of this syllabus.
  • For the schedule of T-days, see list above.
  • Each weekly response will receive a grade of ‘S’ for satisfactory provided that it is complete and ‘U’ for unsatisfactory otherwise. Each ‘S’ is worth 20 points.
  • You must, as always, do your own work. Plagiarism will be dealt with harshly.

8 Weekly Responses are due before prog. So you’ll have up to 160 points, 20 for each assignment completed and handed in on time. E.g., if you submitted 6 of these assignments on time before prog, you’ll get 120 out of 160 points. Every submission which shows up on the course blog counts as receiving an ‘S.’

Now, some folks have indicated they were a bit confused regarding this part of the course and as a result have been turning in their assignments late. I think the instructions are pretty clear, but I’m willing to be flexible. So I’ll give half credit (10 points) for each late assignment which has already been turned in as I write this on Thursday, February 28 at 1.30. Please: no more late assignments.
