A student may review course grades in Moodle at any time during the current module and are responsible for all topic assignments during each 8 week module. The student may refer to the Orientation course to review grading rubrics for specific grading information. If an assignment is submitted after the weekly completion deadline, the assignment will receive point deductions based on the late grading scale established by the University (multiple choice quizzes excluded).

There is no grace period. After the original due date, the late policy applies; however, exceptions may be made in extreme hardship situations. The student must notify the course instructor as soon as possible and submit the required documentation for approval before the late point deduction can be waived. No assignments will be accepted after the course end date, including multiple choice quizzes, unless the student has submitted an Application for Incomplete Grade Form prior to the end of the module. See the Incomplete Grade Policy at https://www.huhs.edu/incomplete-grade-policy/ for more details.

PROCEDURE

Grading Timeframes

Course topics are posted at the beginning of each new week during the module. Each topic assignment must be completed and submitted in Moodle within seven (7) calendar days from when the topic posts in Moodle in order to receive full credit for the assignment (multiple choice quizzes excluded).

For example: If the 1st week of the module begins on Monday, Topic 1 will post on Monday in Moodle and the student will have until the end of day Sunday (Central Time) to complete Topic 1. Then on the next Monday, Topic 2 will post in Moodle and the student will have until the end of day Sunday (Central Time) to complete Topic 2.

Grade Point Deductions

All written assignments that are not submitted in Moodle by the deadline will be penalized as follows:

  • First day late                     10 points deducted
  • Second day late                20 points deducted
  • Third day late                   30 points deducted
  • Fourth day late                  40 points deducted
  • Fifth day late                     50 points deducted
  • After fifth day late             No points awarded

Point Deduction Waiver

In the case of extreme hardship situations, the student must notify the course instructor via email, including supporting evidence, as soon as possible.  If a point deduction waiver is granted, the instructor will establish new deadlines and a plan for the student to get back on track. If a point deduction waiver is not granted, the student may appeal the instructor’s decision by forwarding all correspondence records along with the supporting evidence to the Director of Administration at Amy.Stewart@huhs.edu. However, all assignments MUST be completed by the last day of the 8 week module unless the student has submitted an Application for Incomplete Grade Form prior to the end of the module.
