5. Final examFlag: heart

6. Homework and ParticipationFlag: heart
Students will turn in two self-evaluations per grading period. The teacher will
provide the forms for these evaluations. Students will be given a few minutes in
class at least once a week to complete these evaluations, but they only need to
be turned in twice a term.

The final homework and participation score will be the average of the student's
self-evaluation and the teacher's evaluation, with notes from the teacher if
there is a significant discrepancy.
