On Attendance…

Just because you’re missing from class does not mean that nothing happened. It is your responsibility to not only find out what you missed, but to then get the notes from a classmate, visit the professor for a rundown of the lecture, etc. Deciding not to attend lecture does not make missed content unfair game for a quiz or test. That is, a reduction in class attendance (for whatever reason) does not entitle you to a reduction in content assessment.
