Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: The final course grade for the student will be determined by class participation, two examinations (midterm and final) and assigned projects or term papers.
Grading: GRADING POLICY: The final course grade will be determined using the following measurement: Class Participation: 10% Mid- Term Examination: 35% Term Paper: 20% Final Examination: 35% Students will be prepared to discuss all scheduled assignments in class. The grade scale is as follows: A -93% or above B -85% to 92.99% C -77% to 84.99% D -70% to 76.99% F -below 70%
Late Submission of Course Materials: The instructor will not accept assignments late. Assignments not submitted on the due date will receive a grade of “zero.” All tests must be taken on the dates the class is given the test. Extreme situations may be handled by the instructor on a case-by-case basis. A determination of an “extreme situation” is solely the instructor’s.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Cell phones, beepers and other communication devices are not to be used, or on, during class. Disruptive behavior (as determined by the instructor) is unfair to the other students and will not be tolerated. Loud talking, snoring, sleeping, coming late to class or leaving early, except in emergencies, will not be tolerated. Multiple disruptions over a term will lead to the withdrawal of the student from the class by the instructor. The instructor may announce other rules from time to time. Disabilities: Students with disabilities should contact the instructor as soon as possible, preferably before the term begins.
