The average class size on most of Atlantic Cape campuses is 18-20 students. Because of the smaller class sizes, the courses are more intimate, and students often get to know their professors and their peers better.
Because Atlantic Cape Community College has smaller average class sizes, students can expect to have a relationship with their professors. The professors will, by the end of the course, often greet their students by name and will encourage questions about assignments.
Testing & Grading Procedures
Typically, class grades are divided up between attendence/participation, tests, and multiple assignments both in and out of classes (such as papers). Some professors grade heavily based on midterms and finals, but it depends on the class.
Typical Lecture - Single Day
A typical lecture normally consists of a medium to long lesson about a specific topic by the professor, often followed by activities and other learning aids. Some professors quiz students on reading assignments or lessons for a grade.
Typical Course - Start to Finish
Every course is pretty straightforward. The course workload is average and depends on the professor, as well as the difficulty of the work. Notices for upcoming tests are always given well in advance, and class projects are usually fun and interesting. In most classes, the professor is very helpful and encourages questions or group work.
