ATTENDANCE AND HOMEWORK POLICY

Because attendance is required for the first three weeks of the new semester, attendance will be taken at each of those class sessions. I will also be taking attendance for the remainder of the semester which will be considered 50% of your participation grade. I will consider sports travel when appropriately notified by your coach. The balance of your participation grade will result from your homework being submitted timely.

Homework is due on the date given in the above schedule. The date received will be based on the date you have submitted your homework through Angel. The homework grade will be reduced 10% of the graded score for each day it is late. Homework submitted more than five days late according to the above due date will be graded as a zero. It is therefore your responsibility to submit your work on time.

Some of my students have had issues submitted work with attachments through Angel. It is therefore your responsibility to confirm that your computer is able to properly transmit homework to Angel through the Angel system. I will request that as soon as you can please send something for Module 1 with an attachment in Word so we can be sure your system is compatible with the University’s.

Homework for the first four modules does not require submission thorough Turn It In as they are short answers. Modules 5 through 8 are research papers. Please note the word count requirement and that they are to be consistent with APA format. Your research papers must properly cite two references other than your text book. Your research papers MUST be submitted through “Turn It In” and cannot exceed an originality score of 20% (NO EXCEPTIONS).

DISCUSSION QUESTION:

There are no discussion for this class. You discussion question grade will be based on your participation which is a combination of attendance and timely homework.

EXTRA CREDIT:

At the professor’s discretion, an extra credit assignment may be offered at the end of the semester.
