Class Assessment: Discussion Questions: To earn the full 35 points, you must answer all parts of each question and your first response must be submitted by Wednesday of each week. There must be at least two substantive answers to peer responses. All answers must be submitted by the due date.
Weekly answers must include at least two references from Internet research or the textbook. One or two sentence answers will not earn the full 35 points.
Assignments: To earn the full 60 points, all requirements must be met for that specific week and submitted by the due date. Should the assignment be a written report (a document written in Word, for example), it must be a minimum of three full pages in length, double-spaced, with citations and font no larger or smaller than 12 pt. Each report should have a title page, introductory paragraph, conclusion and references in addition to the three pages of topic specific analysis. Up to 10 points will be deducted for mistakes in APA formatting, English, spelling, punctuation, etc. Exceptions: Assignments which are computational or graphic requiring work in Excel may not require a three page report.
Team Final Assessment: The team final assessment is worth 30% of your final grade. This will be a team project based on a case scenario where team members will have to work together to develop a management information system and a decision support system. To earn the full 300 points, you must address all aspects of each deliverable. Each student will contribute to the project and the project will be submitted as one deliverable with signatures next to individual contributions. Students may use all appropriate software such as Office suite products (including Project) and Visio (or like CASE tools). If you are uncertain about the interoperability of your software, contact the instructor prior to using. Points will be deducted for mistakes in English, spelling, punctuation, etc.
My goal is to give you prompt, clear, and useful feedback to help you become a more successful student and thinker. Each student is responsible for:

Late Submission of Course Materials: Week 1 assignments only (has a grace period) of an extra week during the term with no late penalty.
Beginning with Week 2 the following policy will be in effect for late assignments:
One day late: 10% of the total possible points will be deducted. For example, if the assignment is worth 40 points and it is one day late, 4 points will be deducted from the final point total. Two days late: 20% of the total possible points will be deducted. For example, if the assignment is worth 40 points, and it is two days late, 12 points will be deducted from the final point total. Three days late: 30% of the total possible points will be deducted. For example, if the assignment is worth 40 points, and it is three days late, 20 points will be deducted from the final point total. More than three days late: No points for that assignment. An assignment will be considered late by midnight, Eastern Standard Time, on the due date. I must have all assignments, to include your final team project, by the last day of the term. Any assignment received after the last day of the term will not be graded and will earn zero (0) points. There will be no exceptions to this policy. There are no extra-credit or makeup assignments.
A class week is defined as the period of time between Monday and Sunday. The first week begins the first day of the semester
and ends midnight (Eastern Standard Time) the following Sunday. Assignments
scheduled for completion during a class week should be completed as specified in
the syllabus. Writing assignments and formal papers should be completed and
successfully submitted, postmarked, or faxed so that they are in my hands on
the due date. This applies to assignments submitted through the postal service,
as well as to assignments and papers submitted on-line.
NOTE: Because this is an online course designed to provide you feedback on
assignments via the Internet, you must make prior arrangements with me before
submitting a paper via fax or the postal service.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Etiquette: All your Online communications need to be
composed with fairness, honesty and tact. Spelling and grammar are very
important in an Online course. What you put into an Online course reflects
on your level of professionalism. Netiquette is a set of guidelines for
how individuals communicate over the Internet. The important concept here is
that students respect one another. http://www.albion.com/netiquette/
Course Topic/Dates/Assignments: As outlined per each week in the online course.
Academic Honesty:As a learning community, the University upholds the highest standards of academic integrity in all its academic activities, by faculty, staff, administrators and students. Academic integrity involves much more than respecting intellectual property rights. It lies at the heart of learning, creativity, and the core values of the University. Those who learn, teach, write, publish, present, or exhibit creative works are advised to familiarize themselves with the requirements of academic integrity and make every effort to avoid possible offenses against it, knowingly or unknowingly. Park University 2011-2012 Graduate Catalog Page 21
Plagiarism is the appropriation of another person's ideas, interpretation, words (even a few), data, statements, illustration or creative work and their presentation as one's own. An offense against plagiarism constitutes a serious academic misconduct. Although offenses against academic integrity can manifest themselves in various ways, the most common forms of offenses are plagiarism and cheating. Plagiarism goes beyond the copying of an entire article. It may include, but is not limited to: copying a section of an article or a chapter from a book, reproduction of an art work, illustration, cartoon, photograph and the like and passing them off as one's own. Copying from the Internet is no less serious an offense than copying from a book or printed article, even when the material is not copyrighted.
Plagiarism also includes borrowing ideas and phrases from, or paraphrasing, someone else's work, published or unpublished, without acknowledging and documenting the source. Acknowledging and documenting the source of an idea or phrase, at the point where it is utilized, is necessary even when the idea or phrase is taken from a speech or conversation with another person.
