Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Weekly quizzes are designed to reinforce and emphasize important material covered each week. All quizzes are graded and designed to familiarize the student with material that may be included in the mid-term and final examinations.
Test questions may be a combination of multiple choice, true/false, completion and essay. Tests/quizzes cannot be made up, but can be taken in advance if it is known that one will be administered. It is a matter of fairness because once the examination is administered there is potential for compromise. Therefore, make-up examinations are discouraged and will be available only for emergency reasons, appropriately documented.
Law Enforcement article: Students will research law enforcement related articles and will bring them to class on the dates indicated in the course syllabus. Students should be prepared to discuss the articles and their relevance to the assigned reading material and class discussions.
All work MUST be submitted through the Park E-Companion system and placed in the assigned DropBox.
899 – 800 B
799 – 700 C
699 – 600 D
599 – below F
Late Submission of Course Materials:
All assigned work must be submitted by the assigned date as indicated in the course syllabus. Assignments and examinations cannot be made up, ex post facto. All course requirements and due dates are clearly indicated in the syllabus. Therefore, make-up assignments and examinations are discouraged and will be available only for emergency reasons, appropriately documented, and at the discretion of the instructor. It is a good idea to accomplish tasks early so that personal events do not preclude a timely completion of the assignment. I DO NOT ACCEPT ANY LATE WORK.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Cell phones must be on vibrate or silent mode. If you must take a call, please do so outside of the classroom. Laptops will not be on during class unless the student is utilizing an e-book.
Military students can make alternative arrangements with the instructor because of deployments or other unforeseen military duties that often arise.
