These specific bonus and penalty policies aim to reward/encourage responsible learning, to foster students' ability to meet deadlines, and to discourage procrastination. The concrete terms give students clear ideas as to what (reward) to expect when going the extra mile and, at the same time, what (penalty) to expect when submitting an assignment late. As such, these policies can enpower students and make them in charge of their own learning and grades.
Flexible, the policies can be used for both online and campus classes, and can be easily modified to meet an instructor's requirements and expectations.
Your feedback is to be heartily appreciated.
