Classes usually have between 15 and 30 students.
Professors are normally very accessible, and some are helpful. However, a few can be a bit pompous, and some seem uninterested in helping you succeed in class.
Testing & Grading Procedures
Student evaluation varies. Many teachers include homework, quizzes, mid-terms, and final exams in their grading rubrick. Other professors include attendance in grades, too, which means that if a student misses too many classes, he or she will fail.
Typical Lecture - Single Day
Lectures are highly interactive. Professors will stop in the middle of a lecture to respond to students' questions. Oftentimes, students share their life experiences with the rest of the class. Lectures are usually open forums where any and every question is accepted, discussed, and debated.
Typical Course - Start to Finish
At the beginning of each term, professors provide each student with a syllabus detailing the course curriculum and expectations. Courses usually last about four months, and this time is divided into lectures, tests, and group projects. Most classes have a mid-term exam and a final exam.
