Final 100 TIP: Never wait until the end of the
semester to get help.
It’s impossible to make-up a bad semester,
but it’s easy to maintain good habits

● No late materials collected
● Zeros ruin averages
● Printed hard copies only
● Plan to print at least 2 hours before class
● Materials only collected at the start of class
What if I am late to class?
Do not enter or exit the room while a classmate is presenting. Delivering a presentation can be a very
nerve-wrecking experience for many people. The door opening is very distracting and can throw off even the
most well-prepared student speakers. If you arrive late, peek through the window. If a student is presenting,
wait outside and enter when you hear applause.

What if I miss a speech?

It depends if you have an excused or unexcused
absence (see page 2 for how to have an excused

● Excused Absence
The presentation is removed from the
gradebook until it can be made up. No
points will be deducted.

● Unexcused Absence
The presentation is marked as a “0” until it
can be made up for half-credit if the
opportunity arises. If there is no time for a
make-up, the score remains a “0”.

Please make sure you don’t miss presentation

Some Words From The College
Academic Dishonesty: Academic dishonesty cannot be condoned by the University. Such
dishonesty includes cheating and plagiarism (examples of which are given below), which violate the Student
Conduct Code and could result in expulsion from the University.

Cheating includes but is not limited to giving unauthorized help during an examination, obtaining
unauthorized information about an examination before it is administered, using inappropriate sources of
information during an examination, altering the record of any grades, altering answers after an examination
has been submitted, falsifying any official University record, and misrepresenting the facts in order to obtain
exemptions from course requirements.

Plagiarism includes but is not limited to submitting any document, to satisfy an academic requirement, that
has been copied in whole or part from another individual’s work without identifying that individual;
neglecting to identify as a quotation a documented idea that has not been assimilated into the student’s
language and style, or paraphrasing a passage so closely that the reader is misled as to the source;
submitting the same written or oral material in more than one course without obtaining authorization from
the instructors involved; or dry-labbing, which includes (a) obtaining and using experimental data from other
students without the express consent of the instructor, (b) utilizing experimental data and laboratory
write-ups from other sections of the course or from previous terms during which the course was conducted,
and (c) fabricating data to fit the expected results.

Assessment of Student Work: In order to improve the quality of educational services offered
to students, Leeward CC conducts assessments of student achievement of course, program, and
institutional learning outcomes. The work you do in this class may be used in these assessment efforts. All
work is used anonymously.
