Educational Philosophy: The course material will be presented using lecture, discussions, homework, quizzes, and exams. The goal is to help each learner grasp the course concepts. Your 1st Assignment is explained in the "Additional Information" section.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The test examines each learning outcome with 20 questions. Eighteen multiple-choice questions will be based upon a distribution of critical thinking concepts applied to a learning outcome. Two questions will examine a communication/writing component. Each question will be weighted as 5 points.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: The class will be assessed according to performance on 3 exams, assignments, quizzes, attendance, and participation.
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.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
I believe that when there is doubt ask the question. You can send me questions at Nicole.Kilcoin@park.edu or ask during class. If we are running short on time, we can discuss questions during the breaks, after class, or via email. There is no such thing as a silly or stupid question because chances are others may have similar question. I encourage the students to participate when questions are asked as sometimes a different perspective helps students grasp a new concept.
Let's have fun learning and share work experiences, financial news, etc. that can help enhance the learning process.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.
