I WILL NOT DISCUSS GRADING POLICIES and/or listen to reasons why you "must" get a "4," "3.5," "3," "2.5," or "2" in the course. Those are not my concerns; I evaluate ONLY the work presented to me, not your overall grade point average. Once the final exam is taken and graded, my decision regarding your points is final.
We’re all extremely busy during the last two weeks of the semester and during the final examination period; therefore, do not be surprised if I don’t answer frantic phone calls and/or e-mail messages. Please note the following:
I will not reveal your final grade over the phone, ever, or via e-mail, unless I do so for the entire class.
For your final exam grade, email me the following message: "Please email me my final exam grade. I grant Ms. Jennifer Siegel permission to email me my final exam grade and will not hold her responsible should a hacker gain access (via e-mail) to my grade." Otherwise, give me a self-addressed, stamped envelope (SASE with a first-class postage stamp affixed). I hold all exams and unclaimed literary journals for one year, after which time I discard all items.
