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

A curve will not be used in grading nor will extra work be accepted for credit. Only extraordinary circumstances warrant a student's being allowed to make up a missed final examination. It is the student's responsibility to contact the instructor before the scheduled exam or by the end of the first working day after the day of the missed exam to request permission to take a make-up exam. In the process of determining whether a make-up exam should be allowed, the burden of proof is on the student. The instructor has the right to request verification of any excuse offered by the student. The student who is denied permission to take a make up exam may appeal immediately to the Academic Director or Resident Center Administrator. The appeal must be made by the end of the first working day after the day of the denial. The appeal will be forwarded immediately to the Assistant Vice President for Extended Learning whose decision will be final.
Late Submission of Course Materials:
If an assignment is due on a night that the student is not present, it is the student's responsibility to get the assignment to the instructor on the due date. Five points per night will be deducted each day an assignment is late. Assignments will not be accepted after three dates of the due date without prior approval from the instructor.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
· Class participation is expected and will form a part of the final grade.
· Students are expected to attend all classes and be on time.
