Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
Participation credit (5%) requires the student complete the online course survey and print a copy of the completion page to be submitted with the final exam.
The names of students absent on the first class meeting will be submitted to the campus director for course enrollment verification.
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the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "W".
There will be a 50% point reduction in the attendance and participation grade components for each unexcused absence. There will be a 50% point reduction in the attendance and participation grade components for each excused absence for which the instructor is not notified in advance and weekly topic briefs emailed before the class meeting date or as soon as possible thereafter. Students who anticipate more than three excused or more than two unexcused absences should withdraw from the course. At the end of the course, your accumulated points will be converted to a weighted average grade based on the following scale: 100-90=A; 89.9-80=B; 79.9-70=C; 69.9-60=D; Below 60=F
The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.
All final exams in all School of Business and Management courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam. They will be completed during the test week in the period designated by the registrar or by the Proctor in the case online courses.
