Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
Examinations: There will be 2 exams, each of which will be taken with your class. Any individual missing an exam must have an acceptable excuse in order for a make-up exam. No exam will be taken early. Failure to take a make-up exam will result in a zero for that particular examination. Any make-up exam must be completed prior to the class's next meeting.
Term Papers: Students are required to prepare a research paper during the term of instruction. It is recommended but not mandatory to select a topic that will directly relate to the chapters we will be reviewing during the course. Research or other materials previously used for course credit cannot be used for this course. This effort must be original for this particular course. The subject of your paper must be chosen no later than week two of the semester to ensure time enough to complete the project as well as time to grade it. The written project should be 5 - 10 pages, double-spaced, grammatically correct (not including cover sheet, references, or attachments). The American Psychological Association (APA), 5th edition, publication style is recommended but not required. Your references should be noted at the end of the paper. Plastic report covers and separate folders will not be accepted. A single staple is the preferred method of binding. Please include a cover sheet with your written document. ALL PAPERS WILL BE DUE BY WEEK #7 (NO EXCEPTIONS). The final will be week #8 and I would like to return your papers for your review on that night. Students are encouraged to use the internet's search tools. The World Wide Web is a section of the Internet that offers easy access to text, graphics and other multi-media resources.
Oral Presentation: An oral presentation of 10 to 12 minutes is required over the same topic of your written research paper. Half of the class will present their oral presentations on the date of the mid-term examination and the remainder will be presented on the date of the final.
The grading scale for this class is:
100-90 = A (4.0 honor points)
89+-80 = B (3.0 honor points)
79+-70 = C (2.0 honor points)
69+-60 = D (1.0 honor point)
Below 60 = F (no honor points)
Assignments will be given the following weights:
Midterm Examination = 80 points = 30%
Final Examination = 120 points = 30%
Research Paper = 80 points = 15%
Oral Presentation = 80 points = 15%
Attendance/Participation = 10 points = 10%
The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.
All final exams in all School of Business 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 Dean of the School of Business.
Late Submissions: Failure to participate, attend class sessions, and submission of required papers and assignments on time will result in the lowering of one letter grade per late submission.
As a rule, incomplete grades will not be given. Incomplete grades will not be given for student laziness (i.e. work not in on time; missing exams; student missing final...etc.) Exceptions to the rule do exist, however: If a death in the student's immediate family (spouse, child, parent, grandparent, sibling, aunt, or uncle, or extended military duty commitments) affects the overall performance of the student in the course or if the student misses a significant portion of class due to their hospitalization, the student may be allowed to petition for an incomplete and make up the work. The instructor retains the right to veto any such petition, or grant an incomplete in other unforeseen circumstances.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Cellular Phones, Beepers, Other Communications Devices:
While in class, the class should be your primary focus. Disruptions of class due to communications devices has become so prevalent that they are a major distraction in class (to you, to the instructor and to other students). For this reason such devices must not be brought to class or must be inactivated during the class lecture. Individuals will arrive on time to ensure no disruptions occur after class has begun.
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.

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