INSTRUCTOR’S EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY: The
instructor’s educational philosophy is based on using a variety of methods in

class discussion, examinations, writing, and use of the internet are significant
components of this learning process. Students will be required to analyze,
criticize, and synthesize information learned.
COURSE TEXTBOOK: Administration of Criminal
Justice, by Dean John Champion, (Prentice Hall 2003), ISBN 0-13-084234-6
HONESTY: Academic Honesty is required of all members of a learning
community. Hence, Park will not tolerate cheating or plagiarism on tests,
examinations, papers or other course assignments. Students who engage in such
dishonesty may be given failing grades or expelled from Park.
Plagiarism—the appropriation or imitation of the language or ideas of another
person and presenting them as one’s original work—sometimes occurs through
carelessness or ignorance. Students who are uncertain about proper
documentation of sources should consult their instructors.
POLICY: Instructors are required to keep attendance records and report
absences. The instructor may excuse absences for cogent reasons, but missed
work must be made up within the term of enrollment. Work missed through
unexcused absences must also be made up within the term of enrollment, but
unexcused absences may carry further penalties. In the event of two
consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a term of enrollment, the student
will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of “F”. An
Incomplete will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive
absences recorded for a course. Students receiving Military Tuition
Assistance (TA) or Veterans Administration (VA) educational benefits must not
exceed three unexcused absences in the term of enrollment. Excessive absences
will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary
penalty to the student. Reports of F grade (attendance or academic) resulting
from excessive absence for students receiving financial assistance from
agencies not mentioned above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
LATE SUBMISSION OF COURSE MATERIALS: For each class
period an assignment is late, points will be deducted. No course materials will
be accepted after the last class meeting December 9.
COURSE ASSESSMENT: A variety of methods will be
used to assess the learning that occurs in this course. Students will be
assessed on their class participation, performance on quizzes, essay writing,
examinations, and a research paper. There will also be opportunities to work in
groups, and to be assessed based on individual and group performance.
CLASSROOM RULES OF CONDUCT:

greatest amount of points that may be earned in each class activity. In
determining the number of points assigned to an activity, the major factors will
