Special Assignments and Extra Credit Opportunities
professors offer special assignments or extra credit
as a way for you to expand your knowledge of the
subject and supplement your exam or laboratory
grades. The value of these assignments varies among
professors, but can be as much as 5% of your total
grade, or roughly half a letter grade.
||Since these extra credit
special assignments are optional,
many students elect not to do
them because they dont have
time or think they arent important.
These students lose out on
the chance to accumulate valuable points that may
well affect their final grade in the course. You
should therefore get in the habit of treating extra
credit as a regular course assignment, and make the
time to get it done. You will not only gain extra
points, but you may also be protecting yourself
against a subpar performance on some other required
assignment later in the course.
