The purpose of this course is to educate, which requires two things to happen. The teacher must teach or facilitate learning and the student must learn the required materials. This requires feedback to the instructor on how the student is learning. This feedback occurs in written work and classroom discussion. It is preferred that students ask questions during class as they arise. There is no such thing as a “dumb” question.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the course 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 final exam to be administered in all sections of EC 315. This exam is worth 30 percent of the student’s final grade and will test students’ mastery of core learning outcomes through short answer questions on specific knowledge, Regression analysis procedure, and hypothesis testing.
