Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the course's Core 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 Comprehensive Final Examination to be administered in all sections of MG 375. This exam is worth at least 30 percent of the student's final grade and will test students' mastery of the Core Learning Outcomes (as listed on this syllabus) through definitions, essay, and/or multiple choice questions.
This core assessment is a CLOSED BOOK, CLOSED NOTES comprehensive examination that must be administered and proctored in the classroom and may not be given as a take-home examination. Students should not have access to the exam or its questions before it is administered. The duration of the exam can be no longer than two hours.
No computers, or materials other than a writing instrument and a calculator without text functions, and communication may be used for the exam; this applies to all students, regardless of whether the exam is for on-line or face-to-face students. Completion of the exam is strictly individual; students may not work in groups to complete the exam.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
Students are required to
read all assigned material and work assigned problems prior to the class
meeting for which they are assigned. Students should be prepared to discuss
concepts, graphs, problems and current events in class. The final course grade
will be determined using the following measurements:
Vehicle Points %
Participation 100 10%
Final (Core Assess.) 300 30%

missed final examination. It is the
student's responsibility to contact the instructor before the scheduled exam or
by the end of the first working day after the day of the missed exam to request
permission to take a make-up exam. In
the process of determining whether a make-up exam should be allowed, the burden
of proof is on the student. The
instructor has the right to request verification of any excuse offered by the
student. The student who is denied
permission to take a make up exam may appeal immediately to the Academic
Director or Resident Center Administrator.
The appeal must be made by the end of the first working day after the
day of the denial. The appeal will be
forwarded immediately to the Assistant Vice President for Extended Learning
whose decision will be final.
The comprehensive final is not a take home exam. The comprehensive final is not an open book
or open note.
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.
