    Make-Up Opportunities

    Classroom tests, as well as the mid-year and final examinations, are considered teaching tools rather than ranking devices. Certain subject fields, especially those requiring problem solving as mathematics and some sciences (physics, chemistry), lend themselves to routine, regularly scheduled classroom tests; other may have tests related to completion of units of study.

    Consistency in giving classroom tests necessarily depends upon an overall plan, preferably worked out by the individual teacher with the department chairman. Such a plan should be coordinated with the homework assignment plan and the overall learning approach should be known in its general outlines to each student.

    Students who have missed classroom work and perhaps homework assignments due to excused absences of the usual type should make-up work shortly after return to class. It is properly done at the convenience of the teacher, and once scheduled takes precedence over all other activities in which the student may be involved.

    All students are expected to make up all missed instruction.
