I will not be assigning zeros or late penalties because I want each student's grade to reflect their skills and knowledge they are demonstrating in class. Zeros for missed assignments and Late Penalties lower the student's grade artificially and give a confusing view of the student's work. That said, I need an incentive to make sure the students get their work done.
If any choir student is missing any assignment, I will switch that student's overall grade to an "Incomplete" until the work is turned in. That work will not be penalized, however.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
