Terms and Conditions


1.  There is no limit on how many late fees you can erase

2.  Bonus points cannot increase a grade beyond 100%
3.  Rewards can only be used once on a given assignment. For example, you cannot erase a late fee on the self-assessment project AND then increase the grade by 5%

4.  Please do not ask me to figure out which actions will maximize your final grade. I am lousy at math.

5. To redeem bonus points, you must wait until I tell you how many points you've earned. This will happen at the end of the semester. Then you need to complete the Canvas assignment "Redeeming Bonus Points" by the due date. Once redeemed, the action cannot be undone.
