CORE ASSESSMENT ASIGNMENT:
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: Students are required to read all assigned materials prior to class and participate in class discussion and exercises. Two exams, pop quizzes, a poster/op-ed project, and participation in class assignments will form the basis for grading.
Late Submission of Course Materials: Any material submitted late will be subject to a 10 percent reduction in point value unless permission is obtained for late submission prior to the due date.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Students are expected to attend all classes and be on time. Classes missed for legitimate reasons (illness, TAD, etc.) are excusable, however, the student will have to make up the work missed through an appropriate assignment (essay or research paper). Two un-excused absences are considered excessive. Students are expected to participate in class discussion and projects. While cell phones and recording devices are permitted, it is expected that these devices will NOT interfere with class activities. Cell phones should be placed on silent or vibrate and kept off of classroom surfaces so as not to disrupt the educational process.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 95-96
