INSTRUCTOR'S EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY: Every student who wants to learn, can learn. Students must first enjoy the learning environment. Students learn best in a stress-free, supportive, student centered classroom environment characterized by respect, positive attitudes, and encouragement.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the course Learning Outcomes. The purpose of this assessment is to determine if expectations have been met concerning mastery of learning outcomes across all instructional modalities. For this course, the core assessment is a final exam to be administered in all sections of EC 315. This exam is worth 30 percent of the student’s final grade and will test students’ mastery of core learning outcomes through short answer questions on specific knowledge, Regression analysis procedure, and hypothesis testing.

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.
Homework and Term Project assignments are due at the beginning of class on the date due. Late submissions will be assessed a 50% penalty. Students missing class on the day that an assignment is due must arrange to submit their assignments on or before the scheduled time.
Students arriving late to an exam will be permitted to take the exam only if none of the other students have completed the exam. Arrivals after the first submission must schedule a make-up exam.
In accordance with the course absence policy, students must obtain instructor permission to schedule a make-up exam. Make-up exams must be taken within one week of the missed exam and will consist of the same general material as the original, albeit a completely different version. Make-up exams are administered by the Testing Center and require a valid photo I.D.
