Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Performance will be assessed through the following methods:
Group paper and presentation: Each student will be assigned to a group to complete a research paper (7-10 pages) on a topic related to the course. The topic must be approved by the instructor, and a formal outline must be provided in advance. In addition, each group will prepare a presentation (15-20 minutes) to discuss the findings of their project. Additional resources will be provided in class regarding the expectations for the research paper and for giving a formal business presentation.
Attendance & participation: Since this is an accelerated course, attendance is crucial to success. Please read the assigned chapters prior to class and bring your textbook to each session. It is also vital to participate in class discussion in order to receive full credit for this portion of the grading. Part of this grade will include an informal article review (dates to be assigned in class) where each student will bring a current real estate article to class for discussion.
The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.
All final exams in all School of Business and Management courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam. They will be completed during the test week in the period designated by the registrar or by the Proctor in the case online courses. 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 Dean of the School of Business and Management.
Assignments are due at the beginning of class and late assignments will not be accepted. If you are unable to attend class, please inform the instructor as soon as possible so that alternate arrangements may be made for work missed. Tests will not be made up except with advance approval from the instructor or in a situation of personal emergency.
