Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
A comprehensive final exam of 100 multiple choice questions derived from the first three exams. The majority of the questions are vocabulary or concept based. The exam is worth 100 points out of 500 points in the course (20%).
Class Assessment: Students will be evaluated on the basis of a series of objective type tests. None of the tests will be comprehensive. Extra credit options will be available throughout the semester.
Grading: All tests will be worth 100 points each. Final averages are derived by dividing the total number of points obtained by the number of tests given. Grading is strictly criterion referenced - no curve will be used. 90%+ = A, 80-89% = B, 70-79% = C, 60-69% = D, less than 60% = F.
Late Submission of Course Materials: Absolutely no late submissions will be accepted unless prior arrangements have been made with the instructor. Students have until the next class period to make up missed tests unless prior arrangements have been made with the instructor.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. If the instructor feels that a student's behavior is infringing on other students right to learn, the student(s) will be asked to leave the classroom. Punctuality is expected - if you are going to be chronically late, you should not take this class.
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.

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.

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. Additional information concerning Park University's policies and procedures related to disability can be found on the Park University web page: http://www.park.edu/disability .
Additional Information:If you are a student athlete, do not ask for opportunities for extra credit that are not available to every other student in the class. I am a stickler for fairness, and it is the student-athlete's choice to participate in sports.
