Methods

Each class session will introduce new concepts and topics. The instructor will provide a brief overview of each chapter and students will have an opportunity to enter discussion forums to interact with other students on questions posed by the instructor and/or other students. Homework exercises and/or problems will be assigned for each chapter (see syllabus) and will be due on the dates specified. A short quiz will be given each week to reinforce learning of concepts in the chapter.

The homework problems and quizzes will be accessed viaMcGraw HillCONNECT. About a week before class starts I will provide a URL link for the student to use in order to register for the CONNECT session. I will provide more information about this as we get closer to the beginning of class.

Also, each week there will be a discussion on a general topic or current event. Students and instructor will communicate extensively through the Discussion Board and e-mail.


Evaluation Criteria

Each student will be expected to complete weekly quizzes, assigned homework problems (Connect) and discussion forums (Canvas) by the dates specified in the syllabus. A25-pointdeduction may be made for late assignments. The discussion board assignments cannot be made up. There will be two exams--a mid-term and a final.

The Canvas grade book (or where students see their grades) reflects how the final grade will be calculated:

Homework 40%

Weekly quizzes 10%

Mid-term and final examinations 30%

Participation in discussions 20%

No late midterms or final exams will be accepted. Also, there is no “Making Up” of the BTN discussion forums.

Attendance is checked by the student’s participation in the weekly BTN discussion forum and the submission of assignments.

A+ through C-: Indicates satisfactory completion of course objectives and expectations as specified in the instructor’s course description. Generally, students must earn a grade of C- or higher to fulfill program requirements.

D+ through D-: Indicates marginal performance that will not count as credit for specific program requirements or competence area requirements.

F: Indicates failure to meet course objectives and/or failure to meet grading criteria for successful completion as described in the instructor’s course description.

See also: Academic Honesty policy Academic Standing policy Complaint Resolution policy

P: Equivalent to D- or better and therefore course will not count as credit for specific program requirements or general education requirements.

NP: Indicates failure to meet course objectives and/or failure to meet grading criteria

I (Incomplete): Indicates incomplete, a temporary grade granted only in extraordinary circumstances as outlined in the Incomplete Policy.

W (Withdrawal): Indicates when a student has officially withdrawn from a course after the official drop period, but before 60% of the course duration.

NG (Not Graded): Indicates that an instructor has not yet assigned a grade to the course.

AU (Audit): Indicates that a student has requested to take the course for no credit.

Letter grades will be assigned based on the following scale:

A+ 98-100

A 93-97

A- 90-92

B+ 88-89

B 83-87

B- 80-82

C+ 78-79

C 73-77

C- 70-72

D+ 68-69

D 63-67

D- 60-62

F Less than 60

No grade is recorded or listed on the student’s transcript when a student officially drops during the official Add/Drop period.

When a course is repeated, the initial grade remains on the transcript but does not count in the calculation of a student’s cumulative grade point average.

Attendance Policy

Regular attendance and participation in classes are essential for success in and are completion requirements for courses at CCV. A student's failure to meet attendance requirements as specified in course descriptions will normally result in a non-satisfactory grade.

  • In general, missing more than 20% of a course due to absences, lateness or early departures may jeopardize a student's ability to earn a satisfactory final grade.
  • Attending an on-ground or synchronous course means a student appeared in the live classroom for at least a meaningful portion of a given class meeting. Attending an online course means a student posted a discussion forum response, completed a quiz or attempted some other academically required activity. Simply viewing a course item or module does not count as attendance.
  • Meeting the minimum attendance requirement for a course does not mean a student has satisfied the academic requirements for participation, which require students to go above and beyond simply attending a portion of the class. Faculty members will individually determine what constitutes participation in each course they teach and explain in their course descriptions how participation factors into a student's final grade.


Missing & Late Work Policy

All BTN posts are due on Mondays by @11:59pm. No late posts will be accepted.

Late HW and Quiz submissions will be accepted. However, up to 25 points can be deducted for late work in these areas.


Accessibility Services for Students with Disabilities:


CCV strives to mitigate barriers to course access for students with documented disabilities. To request accommodations, please
  1. Provide disability documentation to the Accessibility Coordinator at your academic center. https://ccv.edu/discover-resources/students-with-disabilities/
  2. Request an appointment to meet with accessibility coordinator to discuss your request and create an accommodation plan.
  3. Once created, students will share the accommodation plan with faculty. Please note, faculty cannot make disability accommodations outside of this process.


Academic Integrity


CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
