EEB 2245: Your grade will be based on your performance in four lecture exams. Your lowest score on the first 3 exams will be dropped, and your scores on the two remaining exams and the final exam will each constitute one-third of your final grade. University regulations require that students who miss the final exam without an excuse from the Dean of Students receive an F for that exam. Thus, you are required to take the final exam. Note: because you are allowed to drop your lowest score, we will not give make-up exams.

EEB 2245W: Your final grade in the lecture portion of the course will be calculated as above. This grade will constitute 75% of your final course grade. Your grade in the W part of the course, as determined by your “W” instructor, will constitute the remaining 25% of your final course grade, except that an F in the W part of the course will result in an F for the entire course. An F in the lecture part of the course will also result in an F for the entire course. Refer to the 2245W website (http://hydrodictyon.eeb.uconn.edu/eebedia/index.php/EEB2245W_Spring_2014) for further information. Dr. Elizabeth Jockusch (BioPharm 305B; tel: 486–4452; elizabeth.jockusch@uconn.edu) is the coordinator of the W part of the course.
