Missing a quiz for legitimate reasons
« on: January 20, 2013, 01:37:50 PM »
I was wondering what protocol should be followed if one were to miss a pop quiz for a legitimate reason.
So, I'm on a varsity sports team, and will be missing lecture on Thurs/Mon of next week. For classes where I'm missing an evaluation, I've contacted administrative people, but in this class, it's entirely possible that one of these days, there might be a quiz, and I'd have no way of knowing about that.
My question, I suppose, is whether I should e-mail ahead of time every time I might miss a lecture for a legitimate reason, or whether an e-mail written after the fact would be sufficient. Would it be posted that a quiz had been missed?
Thanks,
Tom
P.S. I don't know that there will be a quiz, I'm just wondering what would happen should there happen to be one.

Quote from: Course Outlines
All administrative questions, including marks, early sittings, doctor notes are handled by course coordinator Professor Pierre Milman only during his office hours.

So, drop to Prof. Milman's office during his Office Hours and discuss this question with him.
