Final Exams Attendance Incentives Fall 2020 - Spring 2021

What are Final Exam Incentives and how do I earn one?: Students may earn an attendance incentive in each class by meeting the following requirements (more specific info can be found in the attachment):

  1. No more than 3 absences in the course, excused or unexcused (90% or higher in ECST)

  2. For standard courses (and Pre-AP), an average cumulative grade of 85% or higher for the 4th, 5th, 6th grading periods going into final exams

  3. For AP courses, an average cumulative grade of 80% or higher for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd grading periods going into final exams

  4. If students meet these criteria, their final exam grade will be replaced with that cumulative average

  5. Students must still be present (in-person/on zoom) on the day of the final exam for that course

  6. The student must have no disciplinary suspensions or ALC

  7. This attendance incentive does not apply to OnRamps/ACC dual-credit courses

The purpose of the Akins Attendance Incentive Policy is to encourage students to be engaged in their learning!  Although this has been a difficult semester for many students, there are some that have managed to successfully navigate through the process and that is to be commended!  Many will not be eligible this semester, but for those who are this can be a nice way to end the semester! Please begin talking with your classes about this policy and about final exams for your courses.

 

Here is a helpful chart you can use to figure out, "what you need to get on the final to pass the semester?"
