Evaluation and Assessment

A. Procedures for Assessment of Student Achievement

1. Written examinations

2. Written quizzes

3. Laboratory work

4. Homework

5. Comprehensive final

Grades will be given based upon A = 90

100%, B

= 80

89%, C = 70

79%, D =

69%, and F = below 60%.

B.

Departmental Assessment of General Education Outcomes

1.

Problem solving skills will be assessed by a test on electrical circuits.

3

2.

Quantitative reasoning will be measured on Coulomb’s Law.

3.

Cr
itical

thinking will be measured by a test on magnetic fields and forces.

Students will demonstrate attainment of the general education outcome of
cognition with at least 70% proficiency.

Assessment of all sections of Physics 213 will occur at least once every

five
years. The assessment will consist of tests as indicated above. Each
instructor will complete the appropriate form documenting learning outcomes
and submit to the division chair.

C.

Use of Assessment Findings

During the Fall In
-
service of the year f
ollowing the scheduled review of PHY
214, a committee will review all course assessment materials submitted by the
instructors and division chair. The committee will submit a report of any
recommended curriculum changes for PHY 214 to the division chair,
who will
then submit them to the Student Learning Outcomes Committee. Upon approval
by the Student Learning Outcomes Committee, a copy will be filed with the
Office of Institutional Planning and Assessment.

IX.

Attendance

Students are expected to attend

all classes for which they are registered. Students who are
unable to attend class regularly, regardless of the reason or circumstance, should
withdraw from that class before poor attendance interferes with the student’s ability to
achieve the objectives
required in the course. Withdrawal from class can affect eligibility
for federal financial aid.

X.

Statement on Discrimination/Harassment

NACC and the Alabama State Board of Education are committed to providing both
employment and educational environmen
ts free of harassment or discrimination related to
an individual’s race, color, gender, religion, national origin, age, or disability. Such
harassment is a violation of State Board of Education policy. Any practice or behavior
that constitutes harassment o
r discrimination will not be tolerated.
