Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Every course has a Core Assessment, which is one assignment given in all sections of the course. For En 106 the Core Assessment consists of one final-draft essay from each student’s portfolio, chosen by the student, plus a Reflective Essay. Written at the end of term, the Reflective Essay must describe in significant detail the student’s strengths and a discussion of opportunities for improvement as revealed in the complete portfolio. The reflective essay must also analyze the student’s overall development as a writer over the duration of the semester/term.
Although all students in all sections will present a portfolio that includes evidence of prewriting and multiple drafts, the Core Assessment will consist only of one final-draft essay and the Reflective Essay.

Late Submission of Course Materials:
Assignments may be submitted late with the instructor's permission, but barring only extreme circumstances ALL assignments must be submitted by the end of the last class. If you are in the military and must report for duty, copies of your orders should be submitted to the Campus Director. Some documentation for business and family emergency absences should be provided to the instructor who will submit them if necessary.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
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 92All University policies governing academic honesty will be strictly observed.
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 92-93There are three general types of plagiarism: patchwork, global, and incremental, but any way you take it, it's stealing somebody else's work. Park University has a zero tolerance policy for plagiarism because it is not only unethical and unwise, but in certain cases, legally actionable. Avoid even the slightest appearance of it!
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 95-96NB: an education seems to be the one thing Americans are willing to pay for and not get! Come, and collect what you have already paid for. If you must come late, do so - MUCH better late than never! If you know in advance you will be absent, communicate as soon as possible with the instructor to make arrangements to fill in the gaps. If you miss by way of emergency, communicate with the instructor as soon as you can to catch up on what you missed. Prompt communication will enable an "excused" absence, and excessive absence (excused or unexcused and usually set at three absences of any kind over the eight week period) may result in an "F" for the course.
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 .All reasonable adaptations to either the environment or methodology necessary to improve academic success will be attended to immediately. Communicate any particular needs to the instructor for prompt attention.
