Are there any late penalties for work assigned as part your classes?

Posted by: Mr. Roc

There are no late penalties given for work assigned in class or online. There is a natural learning penalty from work done late.  Student learning can be greatly minimized and even crippled because of tardy student effort.  Sequenced learning experiences purposely created to build understanding can be made useless with late work. Assignments done after tests & quizzes covering the same learning are nearly valueless. Homework and classwork grades can be inflated because to many overdue assignments are a part of the grade, leading to a false impression of success in the class and/or grade category.
