Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Minimum reading assignments are detailed in your class meeting and examination schedule. (Students are expected to read weekly chapter assignments and encouraged to pursue the subject matter through outside reading and research.) This will bring interesting and new material to the class meeting for further discussion and consideration. When bringing outside materials, be sure you are able to identify your source of information to share with the instructor. Discussion and participation of each student is required and graded. Since the grade is subjective on the part of the instructor, students are welcome and encouraged to inquire from the instructor their progress in the course. Paper and presentation will be discussed first class meeting. (Be thinking of a "union official" you might be able to interview.)
The comprehensive final is not a take-home test. The comprehensive final is a closed book and closed notes exam.
Each student will be allowed to earn a total of 100 points. The student may earn 30 points each from the mid term and final examinations and 30 points for the term paper (15 points for the written report and 15 points for the oral presentation.) The remaining 10 points may be earned by the student for class participation. Points may be deducted for absences without the required follow-up written critique. (See instructor for more information.)
The following numerical values will be allowed for the final grade:
Grade Points required
A 91 or higher
B 81 - 90 points
C 71 - 80 points
D 61 - 70 points
F 60 points or below
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.

In the event it is necessary to be late or absent it the the responisbility of the student to advise the instructor as far in advance as possible. The sutdent is responsible for material missed due to absence. A written critique (discussed first class) of the material missed will be presented to the instructor at the next scheduled class sesson. Failure to submit the critique will result in two points lost from total points earned at the end of the course. (Two points for each missing written critique.) By providing the written critique, the student may earn points for participation for the missed class.
