Readings of assigned chapters and completion of assigned exercises will assist in providing a better understanding of Compensation Systems and the various parts of the system.
The course will consist of the student reading assignments and completing exercises. Both are extremely important to gain an understanding of Compensation Management.

The final exam for all School of Business and Management 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 final exam must address only material which the student has been taught in class.
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 Associate Dean.
It is expected that assignment will be turned in on time. If it is necessary to miss a class, assignments needs to be submitted prior to the class period (i.e. if you are going to miss the class period, your work needs to be e-mailed to the instructor prior to 5 pm on the day of class or in the instructor's box at the Park University Office at MAFB by 5 pm) to gain full credit.
If the assignment is not in on time there will be 10 points deducted from the grade for each assignments due.
If you are going to miss a class period, let the instructor know before 5 pm the day of the class meeting. Because we are scheduled to meet only 8 times during the term, it is imperative that you attend classes held. If you miss class, you miss important examples given by the instructor and the discussion among the students about the material.
