CCJS 100 – SYLLABUS: FALL (2009) SEMESTER Discussion Presentation ............................... 30 points EXAMINATIONS AND QUIZZES There will be three examinations during the semester, two weighted at 80 points and the final weighted at 100 points. They will be multiple choice questions, based on readings from all texts, videos and class discussions. These three examinations will be conducted in class. Students are encouraged to attend all classes and meet reading requirements. Unless otherwise announced, the examinations are posted in the syllabus. In addition to the three standard examinations, each student will be required to take a computerized “take home” quiz on each of the chapters of the Cole and Smith text. Explanation will be provided in the eBook on how to log on and take the quizzes. Additional information published on (Blackboard), such as when each of the quizzes is due, how much time will be allowed to take each quiz, and the time frame (e.g., the number of days between quiz availability and quiz submission deadline) in which you will have an opportunity to take each quiz. Due to the size of the class, there can be no general changes in date, time or location of the examinations. There will be no make-up examination without documented disability, emergency, family tragedy, religious observance or participation in a University activity at the request of a University official. Students will not be allowed to use any books, notes, or other aids while taking any of the three classroom examinations. Each exam is curved, and individual grades are computed based on the total class achievement. The examinations are not cumulative, and will cover material subsequent to the previous exam. Note : It is the responsibility of the students to notify their discussion leaders in advance of missing any examination.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
