Attendance and Participation (ENGR-2300)


Attendance is important in this class. Since most of your assignments are group assignments, it is unfair to have students who do not attend class and inherit the grades that the other group members work for. Therefore, we have many rules regarding attendance.

Overall Class Participation

Overall Class Participation is worth 5% of your final grade. It is based on the following criteria:

Examples of contributions to the work your group does during class time include: (1) Preparation for class; (2) Answers to Questions of the Day; (3) The quality of materials and information presented to TA/Instructor when getting work signed off; (4) Interesting questions raised in class and on piazza; (5) Creative approaches to completing assigned work, especially in projects; (6) Effectively getting help when needed; (7) Clear demonstration of improved understanding of concepts; (8) Feedback on course materials that were particularly helpful; (9) Providing answers to questions on piazza; (10) Identifying errors or points of confusion in course materials, including homework; etc. From this list, you can see that participation is just being engaged in the course, helping your partner(s) and other students learn and the TAs and instructor do their job better.
