Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses will include a Core Assessment with rubric. This will include ¾ of the Core Learning Outcomes listed above. The Core Assessment in this course will be a major critical paper of no fewer than 5 pages, which will include research and MLA documentation. The project will be completed in the final quarter of the term.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: Presentations, projects, a major research paper.
Late Submission of Course Materials: Generally, late material is a pain for the professor and unfair to classmates. Late submissions will not be accepted except in rare circumstances, considered on a case-by-case basis by the professor.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: I hope we get to the point that rules of conduct are not necessary. In the belief we are nearly there already, let's say that egregious violations of accepation conduct and demeanor will result in removal from the class. Cell phones: turn them off, including the texting feature. If you text during class time, you will be considered absent for the day (see above to see the impact of attendance on your grade). If you miss a class, do not ask your professor "Did we do anything important in class last time?"
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University 2008-2009 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87Lapses in academic honesty may result in failure of the course.
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. Park University 2009-2010 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92Plagiarized work will receive a grade of zero, and probably mean failing the course. Don't do it.
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply.
