In Addition, all Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the relevant Departmental Learning Outcomes. The purpose of this assessment is to determine if expectations have been met concerning mastery of learning outcomes across all instructional modalities. The core assessment for this course is the Final Project and written reflection. The final project will account for 20% of the total grade. The reflection paper should be completed in APA format and should include at least 4 professional references. The topic for this paper is at the student's discretion as long as it is mentioned somewhere in the course textbook. It must be approved by the instructor (e.g. to insure that it is neither too broad not too narrow) so will need to be submitted by a date specified by the instructor.
E-Companion: In order to succeed in this course, you must be minimally proficient in the use of E-Companion. All E-Entries and Exams MUST be submitted through their respective E-companion Drop Boxes, and grades will be updated regularly and available for your viewing. All handouts and power point presentations will be available in the Document Sharing section of the course website through E-Companion.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Cell Phone Use/Text Messaging: Please refrain from text messaging during class, as it is a major distraction to the professor as well as to your neighbors. Active participation is a course requirement and if you are distracted by incoming text messages you are unable to fully benefit from course discussions and presentations and thereby will receive an absence for that class . I understand that on occasion you may need to make or take an emergency phone call. If such a situation arises, please try to alert me of this possibility before class, and please leave the classroom to make or receive your call.

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
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. from Park University 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 95
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 98As active participation is a course requirement, attendance is mandatory and worth 25% of your final grade. You will receive 10 point deductions for each of your first 2 absences and 15 point deductions for each additional absence. As I do not give excused absences, I recommend you save your absences for emergencies!
Arriving late to class makes it impossible for you to fully participate in the class and benefit from the entire lesson. For this reason, you will lose 5 participation points for arriving to class 10-20 minutes late and an additional 2 points for arriving more than 20 minutes late.
Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply. Additional information concerning Park University's policies and procedures related to disability can be found on the Park University web page: http://www.park.edu/disability . I wish to fully include persons with disabilities in this course. If you have special circumstances that you believe may affect your performance in this course, please meet with me to make necessary accommodations that will enable you to fully participate. I will do my best to maintain complete confidentiality of any information you share with me.
