Missed tests must be written/performed within two days of your return. It is your responsibility to arrange a time to write/perform the missed test.
If you have been away for an extended period of time, extra allowances may be made. This must be arranged the day you return. Again, it is your responsibility to make these arrangements.
Quizzes may only be written by students in attendance at the time of the quiz. This policy is an incentive for prompt arrival in class and for steady attendance. Missed quizzes will result in a mark of “zero”.
