Instructor Learning Outcomes
Classroom Rules of Conduct: A. Participation is a subjective element of the student's grade and it critical to the success of the student and the class. Students are expected to read assignments prior to class and be able to discuss material contained therein.
B. Students are expected to attend all classes and be on time. Attendance will be checked each class meeting. Absences for legitimate reasons (illness, duty, etc.) are excusable, however the student must report the absence to the Instructor and is responsible to make up any missed assignments. Three excused absences may result in a reduced grade. Two unexcused absences may result in a failing grade for the course.
C. Academic honesty is the expected norm. Classroom conduct prejudicial to a positive learning environment will result in dis-enrollment.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.
