Grading

60% assingments

20% quizes

20% tests

Alot of what we will be doing is hands on activities. Be prepared to work together in groups. Learning how to work with others is a key to life.

 

Absences and Make-Up Policy

All assignments are required and must be completed on time. Cadets are required to show proficiency in each performance standard to pass this course. If an assignment is not turned in by the due date

Any assignment that is not turned in by the due date will be recorded as an “M” in Aspire which is the same as a zero.  Late assignments will be docked a specific amount of points based on the scope of the assignment. Look at the rubric for each assignment to see how many points you will lose for turning in a late assignment.

 

Rules and Consequences

All UMA rules concerning conduct, dress, and academic integrity apply in and out of the classroom.  The UMA Cadet Guide is a great place to familiarize yourself with expectations.

Cheating is not accepted at Utah Military Academy.  All instances of Cheating are recorded as a Class 2 infraction resulting in an office referral. The assignment is automatically graded as a “0” without the opportunity to make it up. 

The classroom is not a place to socialize. The use of online chat applications is not authorized.

I understand that the cadets are not fully-formed, professional, adults yet.  I see my duty as not only academic, but practical. I will try to become a mentor to a cadet if they are struggling with the rigorous standards we set here at this academy.  If a cadet continuously proves that they are unable or unwilling to attempt to follow our standards, I will refer them to administration. My preference, however, is to handle issues inside my own classroom or with parents directly.
