It should be noted that of the 100 points on each test, 60 points are multiple-choice with no books used and 40 points are essay in which books and notes can be used.
All tests are divided into two parts. The first part is 60 multiple-choice questions to be done in one hour and 15 minutes. This is done through Respondus Lockown Browser. There is also an Essay Test and you are allowed to use your books and notes, but the actual answers must be in your own words. You may do the essays on a separate day if you like, but watch the calendar to make sure you do all tests within the Module that they are assigned.
Grading Scale (for a total of 910 points)
Grading & Feedback:
You are expected to put in between a minimum of 12 and 15 hours a week to study the readings in your book and online, do assignments and discussions and take tests. This is a time accelerated class you have chosen to take so the time must be put in to do it successfully.
You will receive feedback any time you loose points on essay tests and discussions will have comments to each student. Sometimes there is a part of the comment that has a common theme that we want all students to know. If you are ever confused about grading that has been done, send an email and we will be glad to explain and answer questions.
Make-Up/Late Submission Policy:
There will be a due date for each Module. That due date should be honored and you should have all work in at that time. There may be times I tell the class that late tests and assignments will be accepted. This will generally be several days but points will be removed on any late material. That will be 5 points removed for late multiple-choice tests or essays. The same for any assignments. Remember that discussions can never be late.
Academic Dishonesty/Plagiarism/Cheating: The academic community regards academic dishonesty as an extremely serious matter, with serious consequences. Any effort to gain an advantage not given to all students is dishonest whether or not the effort is successful. Any suspicion of academic dishonesty will be reported and investigated. A student who engages in scholastic dishonesty that includes, but is not limited to cheating, plagiarism, and collusion will receive an “F” for the course.
All persons involved in academic dishonesty will be disciplined in accordance with University regulations and procedures. For complete information on UTPB student conduct and discipline procedures consult the university’s handbook at: http://ss.utpb.edu/dean-of-students/scholastic-dishonesty/
Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to cheating, plagiarism, collusion, falsifying academic records, misrepresenting facts, the submission for credit of any work or materials that are attributable in whole or in part to another person, taking an examination for another person, any act designed to give unfair advantage to a student such as, but not limited to, submission of essentially the same written assignment for two courses without the prior permission of the instructor, or the attempt to commit such acts.
Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to the appropriation of, buying, receiving as a gift, or obtaining by any means material that is attributable in whole or in part to another source, including words, ideas, illustrations, structure, computer code, other expression and media, and presenting that material as one's own academic work being offered for credit.

Preparation for Emergencies

NOTE: Identify a second computer before the semester begins, that you can use when/if your personal computer crashes.
Complete Loss of Contact: If you lose contact with course connectivity completely (i.e. you cannot contact me via Canvas or email), you need to call instructor, and leave a message regarding connectivity loss and contact information.
Lost/Corrupt/Missing Files: You must keep/save a copy of every project/assignment on an external drive, UTPB Outlook 365 OneDrive, or personal computer. In the event of any kind of failure (e.g. virus infection, student’s own computer crashes, loss of files in cyberspace, etc) or any contradictions/problems, you may be required to resubmit the files. When you put things on Outlook 365, I do not have access to those files.
End-of-Course Evaluation & Instructor Evaluation
Every student is encouraged to complete an end-of-course evaluation/survey provided by UTPB.
