The professionalism portion of the course grade is intended to motivate students to think more about the impact of their questions before asking them. Unprofessional interactions consume time yet have no meaningful benefits. In the workplace, wasting time of your colleagues, your supervisors or your supervisor’s supervisor will only discount you. When you are discounted, you just won’t be invited for new opportunities that you may or may not be aware of.
Everyone has responsibilities, and interruptions delay completion of those responsibilities. If the interruption has a tangible benefit of progress, all is well.
1% of the course grade is to account for demonstrating maturity and professionalism. By default, every student is assumed to be professionally mature and hence this component is awarded to every student at the beginning of the quarter.

Interactions that have no meaningful benefits (deduction from professionalism) that should be avoided include:
The bottom line: If an interaction has a benefit to you, then all is well. If the interaction has no benefit to you, you should spend your time in more meaningful ways.
The student needs to initiate a regrade request within 1 week of an exam/lab/homework return date. Please submit a regrade request on autograder.
