Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Core Assessment Measure
This will be a final exam worth 20-25% of the final grade. It will have the following:
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
1. Readings-You are expected to read the assigned text.
2. Attendance-Attendance is required for all scheduled classes. Park University regulations state that a student will be withdrawn after they have been absent for two weeks consecutively. Since each class meeting is the equivalent of 3 lectures it is a class policy that you are allowed 1 absence (not associated with school events) without penalty. Each additional absence will result in a 5% reduction of your overall grade.
3. Exams-It will extremely difficult to pass this course without taking all 4 exams. Exams will consist of multiple choice, true/false, definitions, short-answer, and essay questions. You will be allowed to use notes on one 3X5 card on the exams. If you have to spend a lot of time looking through your notes during the exam it will keep you from getting finished. Also, you will serve yourself better if you read through the test before starting. This allows you to concentrate on material you are more familiar with first, so you can have more time for the questions that you may find more difficult. In addition you will only be allowed to use non-programmable scientific calculators. Make-up exams will be given only if the student contacts the instructor before the exam and has a reasonable (instructors decision as to what constitutes reasonable) excuse for missing the exam.
4. Homework-You are expected to read the assignment and work problems. The best way to learn chemistry is to work problems. Assigned problems will be given in every class and will be due at the beginning of the class period on the assigned due date. In order for you to receive credit for a problem on homework assignments you must show: your work, equations used, the appropriate numbers of significant figures, and box in your answer. Late work will not be accepted. As an incentive to keep up and be thorough on homework assignments, I will replace the lowest exam grade with your cumulative homework average.
5. Quizzes-Quizzes will be given at the instructor’s discretion. There should be 3-4 short Quizzes throughout the term.
Comprehensive Final Exam 200 points
Homework 400 points (4@100 pts.)
Quizzes 100 points
Total 1000 points
The scale is 85% = A; 75% = B; 60% = C; 50% = D; <50% = F.

The instructor will not accept assignments late. Assignments not submitted on the due date will receive a grade of “zero”.
