Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Class Assessment: Coverage of the course topic will be accomplished in a variety of ways: Reading assignments, lecture, discussion, slide shows and videos. Assessment will be based on midterm and final examinations, and one page reflective essays which will be written at the conclusion of each class session. If reflective essays as a means of review and assessing the material prove to be ineffective, a quiz of equal value will be substituted. Additionally, participation points will be awarded for each class session. A rubric identifying quality participation and guidelines for reflective writing are attached to this syllabus.

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 87Most of the writing in the course is in the form of reflective essays, and are written informally in the student's writing voice. Make up essays need to summarize the material in the students' writing voice, not duplicate or parrot the text. Copying information directly from the text or other sources is considered plagiarism and will be treated as such.
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.

Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
