c. For purposes of recording attendance, instructors designate a point value for Present, Late or Excused. This means that if a student is present, they earn the maximum points for that day. For example, 2 points. If a student is late, the student might only earn 1 point for that day. And if the student is excused, they might only earn 1 point. 

d. The final attendance grade is calculated using the points a student has earned for each recorded class session.
