Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: Final examination - An examination will be taken in person during the 8th week of instruction at
one of the Park University sites around the country or at an alternative location approved by your
Instructor where Park University sites are not available. It will be the responsibility of the
student to arrange for a proctor, by the 6th week of the term, who will be accepted and approved
by the instructor. Guidelines for selecting an acceptable proctor can be found at the Park
University Website. For proctored examinations, photo identification is required at the time of
the test. 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 me 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. All graded activities, assignments, quizzes/tests,
participation grade, projects, etc. that will be required should be listed here, and should include
due dates for each item. Each student will also be required to participate in classroom
discussions, develop a weekly reaction paper, and a course position paper.
