Small group questions will be posted to the class on Bb and answers will be presented individually and discussed during small group sessions; points will be based on attendance/ participation during these sessions as well as individual responses to questions (preparation, succinct communication/explanation). Teaching Assistants will also spend time reviewing some of the more difficult section material and answering questions. On‐line Quizzes are an opportunity to review lecture material. They are used to test recall of concepts, recognize drug mechanism of action and associated side‐effects and therapeutic use as well as distinguish particular features of specific drugs and/or drug classes (ie compare and contrast). Each quiz will be worth 10 pts each and you will be given 25 minutes to complete each quiz. Each of your top 8 quizzes will be worth 1% towards your final grade. They MAY be open book and MUST be completed individually. Midterms & Final will be MC questions, matching and short answer. Midterms will test recall of various mechanisms of action, associated side effects, adverse reactions, pharmacokinetics and therapeutic use. Key concepts of various classes and mechanisms will also be tested. A focus on integration of information and application of knowledge gained during course work will also be examined. All midterms will happen during lecture hours‐ locations TBD. Missed midterm exam make‐up will be at the discretion of the coordinator and may include: re‐calculation of points, sitting a separate make‐up exam, or an oral make‐up exam. The final exam will be cumulative and will involve longer answer written questions that integrate material discussed throughout the year; the date and place will be set by A&S. Drug Review written assignment will be posted on Blackboard and discussed during the first small group session. Your paper must be initially screened through “TURNITIN” prior to handing it in. Please see drug review assignment for information regarding assignment outcomes. “Students agree that by taking this course all required papers may be subject to submission for textual similarity review to for the detection of plagiarism.
