Due Date

Students need to complete the first attempt of the assigned iHuman case by Wednesday 11:59pm MT. Faculty will provide feedback to the student by Friday of the same week. The student has the option of 1 additional attempt to improve their score by Sunday 11:59pm MT at the end of week 6. There will only be a total of 2 attempts max per each iHuman assigned case.

Assignments are expected to be turned in on time by students. For each day an assignment is late, 10% of the potential points will be deducted. This rule applies to both late and early submissions. Up to three days late, assignments will be accepted with the specified penalty; beyond that, the grade for the assignment will be zero.

Students may ask their teacher for a waiver of the late submission grade decrease if an emergency prevents them from submitting an assignment on time. The teacher will go at the student’s justification for the request and make a decision based on the appeal’s merits. The determination will take into account the student’s overall course performance up to that point. While the appeal is being considered, students should keep coming to class, participating in discussions, and doing other projects.
