Critical thinking and effective communication are included

 in the University’s mission statement as well as in the literacies.

Critical Thinking

 

Please define the following four elements of critical thinking as broadly as needed to assess student learning in your course. Be as creative as possible about how critical thinking is demonstrated in your discipline. Please indicate which outcome demonstrates which element of critical thinking. Identifying outcomes that relate to the various elements of critical thinking shows the ways in which students demonstrate their ability.  Therefore, a distinct level of student performance should be included in each box.

Class Assessment:

3 Hour exams given each Monday of the course.
Daily quizzes given each day except on the exam days.
Final exam, given the final Thursday of class.

Grading:

3 Hour Exams, 100 points each = 300 points
10 Quizzes, 20 points each = 200 points
1 Final Exam, 150 points = 150 points
 
Quizzes will be taken directly from assigned homework problems from the text and conceptual questions will be taken from the reading material assigned the previous day.

Late Submission of Course Materials:

If a quiz or exam is missed, the student must present a doctor's note or other suitable documentation for the absence.  "Oversleeping" or "Broken alarm clock" and "traffic" will not be accepted.  If an exam is missed for a valid reason, you must call before noon on the day of the exam or no makeup will be given.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:

Respect for the instructor and other students is expected at all times.
Cell phones must be silenced prior to entering the classroom.
TEXT MESSAGING DURING LECTURES IS ABSOLUTELY NOT ALLOWED AND WILL RESULT IN DISMISSAL FROM THE CLASS.

Course Topic/Dates/Assignments:

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 students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92

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. from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92-93

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

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "F".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.

Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 95-96
This is a summer 4 week, accelerated course.  One class meeting is the equivalent of 1 week in the long semester.  Missing one class period will be difficult to make up.  

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 .
