No in class work or homework assignments can be made up. If you must be absent when an assignment is due you can get credit for it only if it is submitted electronically or hand delivered before the time it is due. A make-up test may be given if an extreme situation makes it impossible for you to be there for the test. Examples of extreme situations include illnesses, accidents, or family emergencies. You must let me know as soon as you find out that you cannot make it to the test. In almost all cases this means that you will let me know before the time the test is scheduled. You must be willing to provide written evidence of the particular situation that requires you to miss the test.
