You are expected to "attend" the virtual classroom five out of the seven days of each week. You attend by:
The nature of the online education delivery system makes consistent participation absolutely necessary. Attendance requirements will be strictly observed.
So, how do we take roll? Well, online attendance is measured by recording the date of each entry you make to Scribe -- whether it be a response to one of the assignments, a comment on the work of another, or a question to the group or to the professor. We have no easy way of knowing if you sign on unless you make an entry into the meeting (i.e., submit an assignment or send some message/note as part of your class participation). To judge whether you have met the criteria of being in Scribe "5 of 7 days," we use Scribe's date stamp on your assignment and discussion board posts.
An absence does not excuse the student from the responsibility of participating, doing assigned work, and/or testing. Nazarene Bible College policy is that students may be dropped for poor attendance after they have accumulated two weeks of absences.
For more on how late-night posts are counted, see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page.
