PROCTORED EXAMINATIONS

In this course, you
may

be required to take one or more proctored exams. A proctored exam is a
supervised exam

using no notes, books, or any outside support
. If you are located on or near the
OSUIT campus, you may opt to schedule your exams with one of the two proctoring centers
. All
other proctors must be approved by the instructor. (See
A Student’s Guide to Proctored Exams

for more information.)


Students are responsible for finding a suitable proctor to supervise exams, seeking instructor
approval, and scheduling the exam with

the approved proctor.


4


Suitable proctors include:




A faculty member or administrator of an accredited university or college



A school superintendent, principal, or counselor



A clergy member



A librarian



A commissioned or noncommissioned officer whose rank is

higher than the student’s
own for military students



A vocation rehabilitation counselor



Test administrator at a testing office of a community college or university


Relatives, no matter what their position, may not serve as a proctor.


Proctors usually wi
ll supervise exams without charge. However, any charge will be the
responsibility of the student.


COURSE PORTFOLIO

The Portfolio will consist of a group of folders set
-
up according to the instructions on the course
website.
You will then be required to u
pdate each assignment, after I have graded them,
with your grade (at the top) and my GRADE BOOK comments at the end of the document.

You will then save the document into the correct folder within your portfolio folder set. You
will then zip the folders (see the instructions) and upload them to the correct dropbox in
Online
Classroom

for the Midterm and Final Portfolio assignments.


O
NLINE CLASSROOM

The OSUIT Online Classroom
(oc.okstate.edu)
will serve as the primary conduit for course
information and deliverables. Therefore, students are responsible for checking it regularly.
Unless otherwise directed, assignments must be submitted v
ia the Online Classroom.


IT CAMPUS CLOSURE POLICY
(DOES NOT APPLY TO ONLINE CLASSES)

In the event of occurrences (e.g., inclement weather) which require campus closure, students
should log into the Online Classroom (a.k.a., Desire2Learn) by the beginning
of their regularly
scheduled class times for instructions regarding the online sessions. Students unable to
participate in the sessions are responsible for their content

which will be facilitated through the
instructor's choice of online tools (e.g. Wimba,

Online Classroom Discussions, etc.).


Faculty will notify students prior in the event a session will not be held. If the faculty member
does not login within the first 15 minutes of the scheduled class time, the session will be
considered cancelled and ar
rangements will be made for making up the missed time. Courses not
affected by campus closure will continue to operate as normal.


ATTENDANCE POLICY FOR FACE
-
TO
-
FACE CLASSES

A primary component of OSUIT's Mission is “
to prepare and sustain a diverse
student body as
competitive members of a world
-
class workforce”.

Regular and consistent attendance not only
aids in academic success, dependable attendance is a requirement in today's real
-
world
employment;
t
herefore, regular and consistent attendance is a

requirement in all OSUIT courses.


Definitions:

Absent:

Failing to attend all or a significant portion of a class or lab session.


5


A.

Students may not be marked as absent if missing class for situations such as, but not limited
to:

1. Participating in a

required university activity such as a field trip

2. Fulfilling a military obligation;

3. A mandatory court appearance;

4. Death in the immediate family;

5. Extreme illness or accident to oneself or immediate family. Instructors, at their discretio
n,
may require proof of such events.

B.

It is the responsibility of the student to contact and inform the instructor and/or department in
advance of such excused absences whenever possible.

Tardy:

Arriving late to class as defined by the individual clas
s instructor. Faculty, at their
discretion, may equate three tardies to equal one absence.


Procedures:

Early Intervention

A.

Any student who misses 10% of an individual course (or earlier at faculty discretion) during
a regular fifteen
-
week semester or the equivalent portion of time in a shorter session will have
their name submitted by that course instructor to the OSUIT Earl
y Alert System for retention
intervention.

B.

At the point the Early Alert is issued, the student
must

meet with their assigned faculty
advisor or designated faculty/staff member within seven (7) academic calendar days for
counseling on how to improve the
ir attendance and academic success.

Excessive Absences

A.

The University reserves the right to administratively withdraw any student from an individual
course that misses 20% of that course, whether excused or unexcused, and, in the opinion of the
instruc
tor, the student does not have a reasonable opportunity to be successful in the course.

B.

Students should be aware any of the following may impact their financial aid:

1. Being administratively withdrawn from a course

2. Dropping a course

3. Their l
ast date of attendance in a course

Please see OSUIT Policy 2
-
021 for full details and procedures.


LATE WORK POLICY

(READ AND UNDERSTAND)

Unit Policy
: Assignments must be completed on time. Absence will not be considered an excuse
for submitting
assignments late, and a penalty may be assessed against the grade. Late
assignments are accepted only at the instructor’s discretion. Class demonstrations, workshops
and/or training sessions will not be repeated. If a student is absent, it is the student’s

responsibility to make up any work missed. To meet course competencies, students will be
required to complete all assignments and course work.

E
xams will be given on the date and time
announced by the instructor. Make
-
up exams will be given at the instru
ctor’s discretion and
convenience, and may differ from those administered to the class. A late penalty may be assessed
against the grade.


Instructor

Policy:
Turning in your properly
-
executed work early is always acceptable. All
exams, assignments, papers

and projects must be completed and submitted by the specified due
date;
late work will not be accepted after the due date unless prior authorization is given.

It
is the student’s responsibility to maintain and protect all their work and electronic files.

Class

6


materials should be provided to the instructor, if requested. Exceptions for late work are the
same that would be encountered in the workforce: jury duty, military duty, hospital stay, and
required activities in another department. It is your res
ponsibility to notify your instructor to
make alternate arrangements in advance if these events cause you to miss class. Make
-
up exams,
for reasons listed above, will only be given at times arranged with the instructor and may be
different
.
If the instru
ctor grades an assignment you have submitted before the due date,
you DO NOT have the ability to modify the assignment to increase your grade
. Any
additional submissions will not be opened, so make sure you are ready to submit you
assignments and accept t
he grade you are given.


NETIQUETTE

A melding of the words "network" and "etiquette", netiquette refers to the manner in which
communication is conveyed in an electronic environment.

Here are some guidelines for communication within this course:



Remember

to state your name, the course you are in, and detailed explanation of the
question or problem you are having when emailing your instructor.



Always have a subject in the email. This should be the class name and your name or
something to make the instru
ctor aware of who you are and what class you are in.



Communication should be grammatically correct. Adhere to correct sentence structure,
grammar, and spelling conventions.



REFRAIN FROM USING ALL CAPS. IT IS CONSIDERED SHOUTING when
communicating onlin
e. This includes email, messaging, and discussion posts.



Respect others' opinions. If you disagree with what another has said, post your thoughts
in an objective, respectful manner. Do not make remarks that can be taken personally.



Reflect upon the te
xt you have entered before posting or sending email. The person
receiving the message does not know how you feel.



Keep the discussion within the scope of the course material.



Before you respond to a threaded message, read all the messages related to t
hat message
that have been previously posted.



AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT (ADA)

According to the Americans with Disabilities Act, each student with a disability is responsible
for notifying the University of his/her disability and requesting accommodations. If you think
you have a qualified disability and need special accommodations,
you should notify the
instructor and request verification of eligibility for accommodations from the Office of
Academic Accommodations/LASSO Center. Please advise the instructor of your disability as
soon as possible, and contact The LASSO Center, to ensur
e timely implementation of
appropriate accommodations. Faculty have an obligation to respond when they receive official
notice of a disability but are under no obligation to provide retroactive accommodations. To
receive services, you must submit appropria
te documentation and complete an intake process
during which the existence of a qualified disability is verified and reasonable accommodations
are identified. The LASSO Center is located on the 3rd floor of the Noble Center. You may call
918.293.4855 for
more information or fax

documentation to 918.293.4853.
