The class will be taught using a combination of reading, lecture, demonstration and
discussion of sample management problems, case studies, reports, quizzes, videos and writing. One of the best way to
demonstrate and improve your understanding is to explain (teach) the material to a classmate;
therefore, students are encouraged to work together on all parts of the course except quizzes and the final exam.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment
that measures the relevant Departmental Learning Outcomes. The purpose of
this assessment is to determine if expectations have been met concerning
mastery of learning outcomes across all instructional modalities. The core assessment for this course is a
final exam which counts for 20% of the grade. Questions on the final
exam will be developed to test at least six of the eight course core

Electronic Computers will not be allowed on final exams unless an exception is made by the Associate Dean.
Late work will be automatically deducted 10% or one letter grade for each
class period that it is late. Even if you explain the problem to the instructor and reschedule your turn in or presentation, this deduction will still apply.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Students are expected to accept each other's abilities as well as their
inabilities. The only dumb question is the one you do not ask. If a
student misses a class period where a quiz is given, the quiz will be made up
taking a different quiz immediately before or immediately after the next class
period. If a student knows in advance of an absence, they should discuss
the absence and quiz schedule ahead of time. Students are expected to have read the assigned material, including classmates cases,
before class. If you do not understand the assigned reading or case or are unable to complete the assignment, you must check with the instructor before class.
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. Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87-89All work submitted is expected to be the work of the student and the student alone. They may have their work reviewed by a classmate or a friend and are expected to be spell and grammar checked. If you consult an "expert" in a given field, you must annotate this in your report.
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87You are not an expert in operations and production management and most of your work will come from other sources. Always cite your source and give credit where credit is due. If in doubt, give the source. As an extreme example, if all of your report is a series of quotations from list of sources and you assemble the material intelligently and cite each source, then you will be given a good grade. If you fail to cite the source for work that is obviously not your own, you may receive a failing grade for the assignment and in gross cases a failing grade for the course.
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 89-907. Assignments missed because of absence are due on the next date that you are in class.
Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply.
