Attentes du cours

General rules for ‘live’ sessions:
Think ‘COPP’: Camera On (Mic. off unless contributing), Professional, Positive.

Attendance will be taken at the beginning, end, and at random intervals during the class. If a student arrives late, or experiences technical problems, it is the student’s responsibility to signal this to the teacher immediately, and to the Helpdesk if necessary. Absences and lateness, as with any lack of participation, will affect the final grade. Severe lateness will be treated as absence.


B1: The coure of ROBIC


All Grading will be on a scale of 0 to 20, unless otherwise stated.

1/3 CF: A final exam based on vocabulary and course content
1/3 CC: Selected Classroom assignments, as detailed by the teacher.
1/3 PP: Presence & Participation (each representing 50% of the PP grade)

Presence: Students will receive credit for attending class regularly, up to a maximum of 1/6 of their total grade. Unjustified absences will thus have a direct impact on student’s overall grade.
Participation: Students will be assessed on their participation in class, according to the criteria in ‘classroom expectations’

It is the responsibility of the student to make up for any missed work in order to avoid these absences further impacting final grades.

CEFR Grade (A1-C2)
Students will NOT be assessed as to their CEFR grade in this class.
There is NO DIRECT RELATION between a student’s CC/CF/PP and their CEFR level.
