Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: class week is defined as the period of time between Monday and Sunday. The first week begins the first day of the semester and ends midnight the following Sunday. Assignments scheduled for completion during a class week should be completed by Sunday of the week assigned. Written homework assignments should be completed and successfully submitted on the due date. Late assignments will receive a reduction in points of 10% for each day they are late beyond the due date. NOTE: If you ever have problems transmitting your assignments to me, email me immediately, and we'll get the problem solved.
Normally, I check e-mail regularly and will quickly respond with a reply message. If you do not receive a reply message within two days of sending your message, try resending. Sometimes emails get lost in cyberspace.
On-line Course Requirements
Computer literacy - Students are expected to have frequent access to a personal computer with a modem and web browser, access to the Internet, and an e-mail account. Computer literacy is expected (e.g. setting up files, familiarity with browsing and downloading Internet files, etc.)
Reading assignments - Students will be expected to read the assigned chapters in the textbook, the lectures and articles displayed for each week, and assigned material on the Internet. The Online Conference Discussions and Homework Assignments and Proctored Examination assume you have read the assigned readings.
Homework assignments - The homework assignments will be posted in the homework topic for the week they are due. The object of the homework is for you to have an opportunity to study some aspect of corrections in detail and for you to produce a short (usually 2-3 pages) paper on the subject. These assignments will be submitted via the dropbox and you should use APA formatting for any referencing that you do.
Discussions: Each week there will be a discussion topic. I will post questions or scenarios regarding corrections in the discussion thread. It will be the student's responsibility to post your responses to these questions/scenarios and then to respond to other student posts on the subject. This is where your discussion grade comes from. In order to recieve maximum points in discussion, students must post a minimum of four times per week in the discussion. After the minimum is reached the instructor will determine if the posts were satisfactory in terms of response. Please use respectful language with one another and give each other critical feedback. This is the time for us to debate and discuss issues, and these discussions should always be conducted in a professional and respectful manner.
Quizzes: There will be a weekly quiz for each lesson. You may use your book for these, but they are time limited so have your chapters read before taking them.
Midterm and Final Exam: In week four I will be posting a midterm exam that is open book and you will take the exam on the computer using the quiz tool. Make sure that you save your answers before you submit. The final exam which is proctored is also open book but is limited in time to one hour. This is to be completed in week eight. You will need to thoroughly know the material before you take it.
