Educational Philosophy: This course is part of Park’s degree completion program, which is designed for adult’s who have previous college/university credits and/or work experience. Students are expected to read and follow all instructions as to how to format work, where to send it, and when it is to be completed, etc. If any of the materials in the course or instructions about what to do are unclear, it is the student’s responsibility to ask questions.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the course's Core 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 Comprehensive Final Examination to be administered in all sections of MG 365. This exam is worth at least 30 percent of the student's final grade and will test students' mastery of the Core Learning Outcomes (as listed on this syllabus) through definitions, essay, and/or multiple choice questions.
This core assessment is a CLOSED BOOK, CLOSED NOTES comprehensive examination that must be administered and proctored in the classroom and may not be given as a take-home examination. Students should not have access to the exam or its questions before it is administered. The duration of the exam can be no longer than two hours.
No computers, or materials other than a writing instrument and a calculator without text functions and communication may be used for the exam; this applies to all students, regardless of whether the exam is for on-line or face-to-face students. Completion of the exam is strictly individual; students may not work in groups to complete the exam.
The Comprehensive Final Examination for courses must be passed with a grade of at least 60% in order to pass the course regardless of the student’s overall average in the course.
