評価の留意事項 Notes on Evaluation Criteria

Class attendance is made mandatory by the Ministry of Education. In addition,
professors in general do not lecture directly from course materials each class
day, so attendance is essential to gain an understanding and mastery of the
course. Students are expected to arrive on time and to stay for the entire class
period. Attendance will be taken at the beginning of each class, and students
who arrive late to class should see me after the class to have that absence
removed. Three late arrivals will count as one absence. If a student misses
classes four or more times, he or she will automatically fail the course. It is the
student’s responsibility to inquire about missed assignments and to get missed
notes or handouts from a fellow classmate.

You will receive information about assignments at the appropriate time. Late
submissions will be penalized 10% of the earned score for each late day
(weekends count as one day); no assignment will be accepted after one week
past its due date. You might be asked to resubmit your graded assignments at the
end of the semester, so please hold onto them for the term.

Final exam
Final exam will be administered during the official finals week at the end of the
term. Detailed information on the format of the test will be given in Week 7.
