Study Skills - get independent learning points

Malc Prentice

This is the full list of ways to get independent learning points ("OK points").

Your aim is:

1) Score 20 points to max your "participation" score

2) Score a few extra to make up for any points you have LOST

3) Any combination OK. So, if you hate TOEIC for example, just do something else instead.

4) For some, you only get participation points after you have completed the minimum.

How to lose points

Be absent / late -1 point for absent, -0.5 for late no max. Also, 7 = fail! See do well in class
Forget homework/textbook -1 per incident no max See do well in class
Not paying attention -1 per incident no max See do well in class
