Evaluation Criteria * Lab handouts and field trip reports must be submitted to receive credit. Each lab handout and report is worth 50 points. Both reports and handouts must be submitted by the Friday following the lab/field trip – you have ONE (1) week to complete them. Ten (10) points will be deducted for late submissions. To ensure your success in the course, answer all questions on the handouts and follow directions for labeling drawings or diagrams. * Use the ‘Guidelines for Field Trip Reports’ and the field trip report rubric to help you write your reports. Both can be accessed from the website. Field trip reports must be computer-generated and are graded for content, correct scientific principles, grammar, spelling, clarity, organization, and proper citation of sources, that is, no plagiarism. Plagiarized assignments will receive a grade of zero and the student will be referred to the counseling department. Consult the student handbook with regard to this issue.

Grading
The total number of possible points will be multiplied by 0.90 to determine the cut-off for a grade of A, multiplied by 0.80 to determine the cut-off for a grade of B, etc. The percentage range that you fall into will determine your final grade based on the following:

90% - 100% = A 70% - 79% = C Below 60% = F
80% - 89% = B 60% - 69% = D Estimated Point System Handouts/Field Trip
