students in advance (see class schedule). If a make-up exam is permitted by the instructor, a make-up exam will be provided that may differ from the original on-line exam. HELPFUL HINTS : When taking the exam, make sure that the computer that you are using is compatible with Blackboard. You may run a compatibility test/check via the Blackboard home page. Also, when taking the exam, please make sure that you have a secure Internet connection (preferably NOT a wireless connection – because if the connection is lost, you may lose any unsaved responses). If needed, please use an on-campus computer. SHORT ESSAYS/ARTICLE REVIEW: Students will complete three short-essay assignments worth 60 points each and one Journal Article Review worth 40 points. The short essays will require students to answer questions in response to an assigned video and/or readings which will be supplied by the instructor via Blackboard. The Journal Article Review will require students to review a selected peer-reviewed article published by a scholarly journal. Students will be given one week to complete each assignment. Specific instructions for each essay assignment will be available under the “Short Essay” tab in Blackboard and the
“Journal Article Review” tab in Blackboard. The due dates for these assignments will be provided to the students in advance (see class schedule ). The assignments must be completed according to the directions and submitted on time. Students should be attentive to the due date which will be clearly posted with the assignment. Given that students can complete the assignment at their convenience throughout the week, it is expected that no make-up assignments will be necessary. As such, essays/reviews turned in after the posted due date will not be accepted, unless the student can substantiate a university approved excuse. Students who anticipate being unable to perform a given assignment as required, due to a valid university approved excuse must contact the instructor via phone or email, if possible, prior to the assignment due date. Documentation of a valid excuse will be required. TIME MANAGEMENT: While on-line classes do afford students some flexibility in schedule, it is also important to keep in mind that these classes also require significant time management skills. Students should pay special attention to the class schedule/due dates (attached to the syllabus). HELPFUL HINT: Students should use an electronic calendar (or phone, etc.) to set reminders for upcoming assignment due dates and exams which are posted in advance on your class schedule. ACADEMIC DISHONESTY: Any form of academic dishonesty, which includes (but is not limited to) cheating on assignments, examinations, papers or plagiarism of any kind will not be tolerated. Any student found engaging in academic dishonesty will receive a failing grade and will be reported to the Dean of Students. If you have any questions about this policy, please contact the instructor.
