Course Requirements:


There are two formal examinations in the course, which will count toward 65% of your total grade.
Each of these tests is cumulative: i.e., it will cover all material from the beginning of the semester.

  • MIDTERM: Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2018, 25% of the grade

  • FINAL: Monday, May 7, 2018 (at 9 a.m.), 40% of the grade

Each test will be given in Maury 209.

Each exam will consist of a multiple-choice test, given on Scantron sheets: please be sure to bring a #2 pencil to class.

NOTE: Please note that, according to University regulations, the final exam cannot be given early for any reason. Students who cannot make the final must ask Prof. DeVeaux for an incomplete form, to be filed with Garrett Hall (for Arts and Sciences students). Only then can they take the final exam at a later date, no later than the first week of the following semester.

Class Participation (Discussion Section)

For each discussion section, we will ask you to submit three questions, comments, or observation drawn from an assigned chapter in Jazz. These questions must be submitted to your TA (consult them for their perferred format) by 5 p.m.. before the next class. Students will be graded on the questions they submit, and in their participation in the discussion sectkions. Participation in discussion sections will count for 25% of the total grade.

Concert report

10% of the total grade will be come from two concert reports. The first concert report is due on Friday, March 2, 2018, 5 p.m. (the day before Spring Break). The second report is due on Monday, April 30, 2018 (the last class). Reports are normally turned in to the TA via Collab (consult the TA for their preferred method).
