Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
For this course, the core assessment is a Comprehensive Final Examination to be administered in all sections of MG 375. This exam is worth at least 20 percent of the student's final grade and will test students' mastery of the Core Learning Outcomes (as listed on this syllabus) through definitions, essay, and/or multiple choice questions.
This core assessment is a CLOSED BOOK, CLOSED NOTES examination that must be administered and proctored in the classroom and may not be given as a take-home examination. Students should not have access to the exam or its questions before it is administered. The duration of the exam can be no longer than two hours.
No computers, or materials other than a writing instrument and a calculator without text functions, and communication may be used for the exam; this applies to all students, regardless of whether the exam is for on-line or face-to-face students. Completion of the exam is strictly individual; students may not work in groups to complete the exam.
The Comprehensive Final Examination for online courses must be passed with a grade of at least 60% in order to pass the course regardless of the student’s overall average in the course.

General Grading Policy: Grades will be given by accumulation of points during the eight weeks of the course. Points are accumulated by completing and submitting assignments as follows:
MG375 - Assignment Point Schedule Assignment Total Points In Course

Submitting a project assignment 12

Students will be able to track their points throughout the course through use of the classroom grade book. Points for discussion, homework, project, quiz, lessons learned, and final exam will be shown each week. Submission of Late Work: Each week's work must be completed by the end of that week (Midnight MST on Sunday). Assignments received after this time will receive a 50% reduction in points. Assignments received more than a week late will not receive any credit.
Proctored Final Examination: A final proctored examination will be taken in a proctored testing environment during the 8th (or 16th) week at one of the Park University sites around the country or at an alternative location. For proctored examinations, photo identification is required at the time of the test. Guidelines for selecting an acceptable proctor can be found on the Park University Website. Other Information on proctored exams: It will be the responsibility of the student to arrange for a proctor, by the 6th week of the term, who is accepted and approved by the course instructor. Approval of proctors is the discretion of the Online instructor. A proctor request form will be made available to you during the first week of class so that you can send your requested proctor to your instructor for approval. Failure to take a final proctored exam (or submit your final project for some online graduate courses) will result in an automatic "F" grade.
Since there are 100 total points available through the scheduled coursework, each point earned according to the Class Assessment section above is worth 1% towards your final grade.
Grades will be determined as a percentage of total course points within the following scale:
A - 90-100%
B - 80-89.9%
C - 70-79.9%
D - 60-69.9%
F - Below 60%
All final exams will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. If calculators are allowed, they will not be multifunctional electronic devices that include features such as: phones, cameras, instant messaging, pagers, and so forth. Electronic Computers will not be allowed on final exams unless an exception is made by the Associate Dean.
The Proctored final exam for online courses must be passed with a grade of 60% or higher in order to pass the course regardless of the overall average. The grade for students who pass the proctored final will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course. The proctored final exam must address only material which the student has been taught in class.
