The student must keep a time sheet and accurately record the number of hours completed on a regular basis. Each Running Crew position is equal to 1 credit of practicum. Since production work is seasonal, the student is reminded that the approach of production deadlines often demand a more concentrated use of time; a written schedule will be maintained, keeping in mind that the hours cannot be completely equally spaced throughout the semester. If a student does not complete the required number of hours for registered credits, (s)he may receive an unsatisfactory or failing grade for the course. Student commitment and quality of work, as well as the student’s attitude towards learning will be examined upon the assignment of grades.
