Course Assessment

All assignments must be written and submitted electronically as Word documents. It is important that you participate in online class meetings, and attendance will be recorded. As this course is intensive, you will miss valuable information with each class session you do not attend.

Your course grade will be determined as follows:

Two short assignments (each counting for 15% of the final grade) 30%

Final assignment (full research proposal) 70%

You will receive brief feedback and grades for the short assignments. You will have the opportunity to receive comprehensive feedback on the final assignment, which the instructors will discuss with you in consultation hours well before the deadline for submission of that assignment.
