There are no quotas or curves for A's and B's. I would be happy to give all A's, although it is more typical to see about half A's and half B's. I value class participation: attendance and willingness to ask and answer questions in class. It will be used in deciding borderline grades.
ST 793 will use a plus/minus grading system.
You should not obtain copies of previous student hw's or use them for helping to complete assignments. (Part of the reason for making the hw grade count only 10% is due to abuse of these rules. In particular, it is counter-productive to get much help on the hw because you will not learn the material using that approach.)
Reasonable accommodations will be made for students with verifiable disabilities. In order to take advantage of available accommodations, students must register with Disability Services for Students at 1900 Student Health Center, Campus Box 7509, 515-7653.
For more information on NC State's policy on working with students with disabilities, please see the Academic Accommodations for Students with Disabilities Regulation
Online class evaluations will be available for students to complete during the last two weeks of class. Students will receive an email message directing them to a website where they can login using their Unity ID and complete evaluations. All evaluations are confidential; instructors will never know how any one student responded to any question, and students will never know the ratings for any particular instructors.
