Extra Credit

Click on the small triangle next to the "Extra Credit" in the index list to the left to see the subpages.

Here are some things to remember about extra credit.

  • Extra credit should be just that... "EXTRA".  This means that the regular class work and assignments should get your attention first and then extra time and energy can go towards extra things. 
  • There is no due date for extra credit.  You can do it anytime up until a week before the end of the grading period.
  • The maximum that extra credit can bring up your grade is 10%.  This does not include extra credit that is a part of an assignment.
  • You cannot get, give, buy, or barter extra credit points between people.
  • Don't depend on extra credit to save you at the end of the semester (or any time).  See the first item in this list.
  • I try to make a time-to-credit equivalent of about 1 point for every 10 minutes of work.  This should apply to all extra credit options.
