Core Assessment:

All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the course's Core Learning Outcomes. The purpose of this assessment is to determine if expectations have been met concerning mastery of learning outcomes across all instructional modalities. 

For this course, the core assessment is a Comprehensive Final Examination to be administered in all sections of MG 375. This exam is worth at least 30 percent of the student's final grade and will test students' mastery of the Core Learning Outcomes (as listed on this syllabus) through definitions, essay, and/or multiple choice questions. 

This core assessment is a CLOSED BOOK, CLOSED NOTES comprehensive examination that must be administered and proctored in the classroom and may not be given as a take-home examination. Students should not have access to the exam or its questions before it is administered. The duration of the exam can be no longer than two hours. 

No computers, or materials other than a writing instrument and a calculator without text functions, and communication may be used for the exam; this applies to all students, regardless of whether the exam is for on-line or face-to-face students. Completion of the exam is strictly individual; students may not work in groups to complete the exam.

The Comprehensive Final Examination for courses must be passed with a grade of at least 60% in order to pass the course regardless of the student’s overall average in the course.

Class Assessment:

General Grading Policy: Grades will be given by accumulation of points during the eight weeks of the course. Points are accumulated by completing and submitting assignments as follows:

MG375 - Assignment Point Schedule Assignment                       Total Points In Course

Submitting an answer to a discussion question                                           8  

Responding to a submitted discussion question                                          8

Submitting answers to a homework problem                                              8  

Responding to a submitted homework problem                                          8

Submitting answers to a quiz                                                                     14

Submitting a lessons learned assignment                                                    8

Completing a proctored final exam                                                             30

    • The comprehensive final is not a take-home test.
    • The comprehensive final is a closed book and closed notes exam. 
    • For all online courses, the student must pass the final exam with 60% or better
      to pass the course

 Total                                                                                                          100

Students will be able to track their points throughout the course through use of the classroom grade book. Points for discussion, homework, project, quiz, lessons learned, and final exam will be shown each week. Submission of Late Work: Each week's work must be completed by the end of that week (Midnight MST on Sunday). Assignments received after this time will receive a 50% reduction in points. Assignments received more than a week late will not receive any credit.

Proctored Final Examination: A final proctored examination will be taken in a proctored testing environment during the 8th  week at one of the Park University sites around the country or at an alternative location.  For proctored examinations, photo identification is required at the time of the test.  Guidelines for selecting an acceptable proctor can be found on the Park University Website. Other Information on proctored exams: It will be the responsibility of the student to arrange for a proctor, by the 6th week of the term, who is accepted and approved by the course instructor.   Approval of proctors is the discretion of the Online instructor.   A proctor request form will be made available to you during the first week of class so that you can send your requested proctor to your instructor for approval.   Failure to take a final proctored exam (or submit your final project for some online graduate courses) will result in an automatic "F" grade.

Grading:

Since there are 100 total points available through the scheduled coursework, each point earned according to the Class Assessment section above is worth 1% towards your final grade.

Grades will be determined as a percentage of total course points within the following scale:

A - 90-100%

B - 80-89.9%

C - 70-79.9%

D - 60-69.9%

F - Below 60%

The final exam for all School of Business and Management courses must be passed with a grade of 60% or higher in order to pass the course regardless of the overall average.  The grade for students who pass the proctored final will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course.  The final exam must address only material which the student has been taught in class.

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.  If calculators are allowed, they will not be multifunctional electronic devices that include features such as: phones, cameras, instant messaging, pagers, and so forth.  Electronic Computers will not be allowed on final exams unless an exception is made by the Associate Dean.

Late Submission of Course Materials:
Each week's assignments must be submitted by the end of that week (defined as midnight Sunday, Central time) Assignments received after this deadline will receive zero points unless arrangements have been approved by the facilitator in advance.
