student and if they determine that academic dishonesty or misconduct has occurred, the instructor will prepare a written account and file a “Misconduct Referral Form” with the Office of the Dean of Students. The full “Academic Dishonesty and Student Misconduct” policy is linked to the department’s website: Attendance & Timeliness. It is important that you attend class and be physically and mentally present each day. Assignments and quizzes given in class cannot be made up in the event of unexcused absences. Students are required to attend the entire class period in order for in-class assignments and quizzes to be accepted for credit, unless a tardy or early departure is excused. Excused absences will be granted only for (a) documented personal illness or injury; (b) representing the university in an official capacity (athletic events, ROTC, academic conferences, etc.); or (c) a death in the family. Documentation is required in all cases, regardless of reason. Students must provide satisfactory documentation (as determined by the instructor) for all absences within 1 week of the absence so the instructor can determine if the absence is excused. Failure to provide documentation within this time frame will result in an automatic unexcused absence. Timeliness is as important as attendance. Therefore, if you are late to class and miss a quiz or other point-bearing assignment, you will not be allowed to make it up unless your tardiness is excused with proper documentation. Participation. You are expected to participate actively in the course, both in your approach to taking notes over the reading material as well as the online lectures AND in your participation in the assessment meetings. In order to do so, you should prepare yourself by reading assignments and watching lectures before your assessment meetings and thinking critically about the material. Although you are encouraged to challenge ideas, you must show respect for people who share differing viewpoints in support of a climate that encourages participation from everyone. Assignment Turn In. All assignments must be submitted through Canvas as explained in each assignment description. Assignments will not be accepted via email or any other format. It is your responsibility to use Canvas effectively to turn in your assignments and to ensure that your assignment is properly
