Units 1-3

Each chapter test must be passed with a score of at least
80%. If corrections are not made within one

week, the test must be retaken. This contract represents the equivalent of 75
hours of work.

Each chapter’s activities and section questions should be
turned in as each chapter is

completed. After the instructor has had a chance to evaluate your work, you will
be given the chapter

exam. If your test score is greater than 70% but less than 80%, you will be
given the opportunity to correct

your mistakes in order to achieve an 80% score. Corrections must be made within
one week of

taking the test or the test will have to be retaken.

Grading: Completion of all tests at 80% proficiency will
result in a “P” Pass. If the student requests a

letter grade, a “P” is equivalent to a letter grade of “C.” If an A/B grade is
desired, all work, including

activities, must be completed within 3 weeks at the 90/80% level and no test
corrections will be allowed.
