Outcomes Assessment:

Successful completion of the course will be evidenced by the ability to use the
information gained to

better understand subsequent topics, and by successfully
completing the exams and other assignments, given during the course of the program.

Policies and Procedures:

1.

Attendance policy

Students are expected to attend every class session and lab
session. Students are expected to be in
class at the prescribed time. Attendance is determined by a combination of time cards, and instructor
observation, with the time cards being the main method of keeping attendance. However, coming in
late, and/or

leaving early, as observed by the instructor, will be counted as tardy.

2.

Hours of lecture each week

approximately 7 ½ hours

3.

Hours of lab each week

none (lab is a separate listing)

4.

Required assignments

Homework assignments count for 25% of grade

5.

La
te policy

Student is considered late 6 minutes after the scheduled start
of class

6.

Plagiarism statement

Student must do his/her own work, when
composing reports, or other research projects. All research material,
whether from Internet, Library, Magazin
e sources, or other printed media,
must be indicated by references in the document. All references must be
complete enough to allow validation by the instructor. Any violations of
this policy (for example, copying of someone else’s material) will be
puni
shable, up to, and including, dismissal from the program.

7.

1.

Testing procedure

tests will be given on a periodic basis, generally once
a week, depending on subject matter, and will normally be ‘open notes’
type tests. Some tests , howev
er, will require memorization of the
material, and will be ‘closed notes’, ‘closed book’ tests.

2.

90% to 100% = A

80% to 89.9% = B

70% to 79.9% = C

60% to 69.9%

= D

below 60% = F

3.

Attendance and Punctuality

Student must maintain 60% or higher on quiz grades, to pass, no matter what the
overall average is. Instructor also may adjust the grade up or down based on
attendan
ce and punctuality. Any student who misses more than the equivalent of 5
class sessions will begin to lose points. Each absense beyond the fifth absense will
lower the numerical grade by 2 points. Each time the student is tardy 1 point will be
deducted

from the grade, after the total of 5 class sessions are missed. Therefore, 2
tardies count as 1 absence.

Example: Student misses 4 complete days (4 absenses), and has 3 tardies. Each of
the absenses count 2 points (4 x 2 = 8), and each tardy counts
1 point (3 x 1 = 3), so
total points deducted from the students grade is 11
-

10 (5 class periods free) = 1
point

Revised 4/99

So, if the student has a 74.5 % , his/her adjusted grade is now 74.5
-

1 = 73.5 %

Library Use if Applicable:
-

none assigned
