Educational Philosophy: My educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, quizzes, dialogues, examinations, internet, web sites and writing. I engage each learner to encourage the lively exploration of ideas, issues and contradictions.
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.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: There will be three tests plus a final exam, homework/quizzes, and a written research project in this course. Grades will be the percentage of correct responses on assignments. Test 2 will be the midterm test.
Your grade will be determined by weighted mean. Homework average will count 10% of the final grade, three tests will count 10% each, final exam 30%, research paper 20%, and class participation 10%. Grades will be determined as follows:
A = 90% to 100% B = 80% to <90% C = 70% to <80% D = 60% to <70% F <60%
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.
All final exams in all School of Business courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam. They will be completed during the test week in the period designated by the registrar or by the Proctor in the case online courses. If calculators are allowed, they will not be multifunctional electronic devices that include features such as: phones, cameras, instant messaging, pagers, and so forth. Electronic Computers will not be allowed on final exams unless an exception is made by the Dean of the School of Business.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Come on time. If you are late and unexcused, you will lose class participation points for the week. If you cannot make class, let me know beforehand. If work is your excuse for absence, a letter from your supervisor to me will be required. Turn off all electronic devices before class starts; if you are on call let me know and have your cellphone set to a silent setting. If you emit an electronic beep or have your cell phone / personal communication device out during the class, you will lose 50% of your class participation points for the term. Be an active participant in class. Ask questions and join in the discussion.
