I develop each class with the idea that "We are all Life Time Learners" and that adults learn better if they are part of the learning process itself. In order to succeed in this course, the student must first and foremost participate each week in class. The facilitator's educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on the assumption that the student must conscientiously prepare for class by reading the text prior to participation. The student must satisfactorily complete all examinations, term paper, and homework which is developed to emphasis the course's Core Learning Outcomes. All methods of teaching are designed to transfer new material by clarifying and emphasizing subject areas presented in the text, current news topics, and experiences.
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 375. 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.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
Each student is required to read all assigned material before class and be prepared to participate in class discussions and activities. Class Participation Grading will be based on class participation, two exams, homework, pop tests, and research paper and a pp presentation which are developed to enhance the comprehension of the Core Learning Objectives. Bring one article/Internet site per week for class discussion.
Midterm Examination 200 pts 20%
Final Examination 300 pts 30%
Research Project 200 pts 20%
Homework 150 pts 15%
Research Presentation 50 pts 5%
Class Participation 100 pts 10%
1000 pts 100%
Final grade will be determined using the following criteria: A -900.0 - 1000.0 cumulative average (c.a). B -800.0 - 899.9 c.a. C - 700.0- 799.9 c.a. D - 600.0 -699.9 c.a. F -000.0 - 599.9 c.a.
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.
Exam make up: If students miss an exam, they will have one week to take a makeup exam returning to class. The third (final) exam, however, must be made up within 24 hours of the assigned date or an F will be given for the exam.
Reports, homework, and presentation will incur a reduction of 10 points per day for reports and 10 points per class session for presentations and homework.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: 1. Professional conduct expected. The lecture relies on the fact that you have read the assigned material and have completed any assignment relating to it.
2. a. No interruption while learners are discussing and/or asking questions.
b. Class starts at the published time and attendance will be taken. No Exceptions!
