Practice/練習

Practice exercises are formative assessments, and as such, do not affect your grade.   Of course, I recommend you do it on time so that you can receive feedback from me in a timely fashion--learning and error correction depends on timely feedback.  Deliberate Practice is the easiest way to practice your skills and improve. Choose to do every assignment, one day at a time, and you will do fine.

When you look at the your grade online you will see 2, 1, or 0 for a particular practice exercise.  A 2 means that you did it on time, and completely.  A 1 means that you either did some of it, or you did it completely but later than the due date (thus missing out on timely feedback).  A 0 indicates that I have no idea if you did the work or not, because I never received anything from you.  

If you see yourself dropping below 75% or more 2's in the practice portion of the gradebook, you might want to change your ways. I advise you to do so because my data suggests that any student who does less than 75% of the practices usually does not pass the course. I have been teaching for more than a decade and I can only think of a handful of students who defied the odds in this regard. 

Basically, practice=mastery=high grade in course. No practice=familiarity=lower grade in course. It's quite logical when you stop to think about it .
