Educational Philosophy: The instructor's educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, homework, case studies, examinations, and class discussions. The instructor encourages students to explore new ideas, to examine different points of view, and apply critical analysis to case studies and class discussions.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
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 calculators, computers, or materials other than a writing instrument 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.
Class Assessment: Learning will be assessed via classroom participation, mid-term, final examination, homework, paper, and presentations.
Grading scale and general evaluative criteria: To achieve the maximum number of points the assignment is organized in a logical manner with appropriate punctuation and spelling; is submitted on time; provides a good, concise businesslike analysis; proposes solutions that logically flow from the analysis; and integrates relevant course content material when appropriate.
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.
The instructor will not accept assignments late. Assignments not submitted on the due date will receive a grade of "zero". Make-up exams will be given for excused absences only. Arrangements to "make-up" an examination must be made IN ADVANCE unless an acceptable "emergency" excuse is documented. The instructor will determine what constitutes an "emergency". Contact the instructor as soon as you know you must miss an exam to make arrangements for making up that exam. If a student does not show up for an examination or make arrangements for otherwise taking the examination, a failing grade will be given for that portion of the course. Student departing on TAD, TDY, or other excused absences, approved by the instructor, and should complete assignments prior to departure.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
As a member of the learning community, each student has a responsibility to other students within the community. When cell phones ring and students respond in class, it disrupts the class. Therefore, the use of cell phones, PDAs, or similar communication devices during scheduled classes is prohibited. All such devices must be turned off or put on vibrate mode and should not be taken out during class. If a student should receive an important call during the schedule class time, the student should leave the classroom to respond. Other exceptions to this policy may be granted at the discretion of the instructor.
