Grading and Attendance Policy:

The EBM Course is graded on a Pass/Fail basis. Eligibility for a Passing grade is accomplished by:

  • Attending and participating in a minimum of five class sessions with make-up of any missed session*
  •  No student who misses more than one class session will be eligible to pass
  • A student who arrives more than 15 minutes late will not earn credit for the session
  • A student who uses his or her laptop during the class, which is designed to be interactive,will not earn credit for the session unless the session was explicitly designed to demonstrate real-time searching strategies

*Make-up assignments will be distributed via email the following day to students who missed a session and will be due back to Megan von Isenburg via email by 9 am the following Thursday. Assignments will be assessed for completeness and attention to the task, and answer keys will be distributed for self-assessment.
