and begin your course. You are allowed as many hours as you need for completing the course. You will need the eBundle and a user name and password. You cannot enter the online course without this information! NOTE: You cannot share the keycode with another learner. The keycode is tied to your work in the course, so sharing will not work. You need a different keycode for each Rockwell course you take. If you are taking four classes that use the Rockwell system, you will need four separate keycodes. Work through the course by following the course due dates found later in this syllabus. If you experience any difficulties during the registration process, please contact Rockwell at 1-800-221-9347. Get started right away. Work in small chunks. Take breaks. Do not procrastinate.

Final Exam: 10% Quizzes: 65% Class Participation/Discussion Board 25% 90% and up=A 80%-89%=B 70%-79%=C 60%-69%=D 59% and below=F Regarding grades: This class automatically grants a letter grade (A-F), however, you have the option to contact Admissions & Records as soon as you enroll in the class and elect to take the class “pass/no pass.” About Your Participation Grade: This course requires you to interact with your professor as well as fellow classmates, just as you would in a live classroom. You will be required to make at least 25substantive, quality contributions to the class discussion board by the end of the semester. Ideally, you should be posting at least twice per week. Your professor has a discussion topic for each chapter from the course textbook. Your professor will address student posts in the class podcast. Our goal is to have regular and substantive contact with all of our students. Don’t be afraid to share your responses to the weekly topics. We want to hear from you! Also, your professor will post announcements via Blackboard regarding course content on a regular basis. Quizzes: Throughout the lecture slides on rockwellinstitute.com, you will come across many different types of quizzes and challenge exercises. These quizzes and challenge exercises make up the majority of your class grade. The latest and greatest research shows that students retain information when they see it several times, rather than just once. Because of this, we will allow you to retake these quizzes and challenge exercises as many times as you would like, and we will use your average score for each quiz/challenge exercise toward calculating your grade. So, if you take the quiz once and don’t do as well as you expected, don’t worry! Go back over the course material for that section and re-take the quiz! If you got a 50% on the quiz on attempt 1, and retook it and got a 100% the second time, we would average that out to a 75% for that quiz. About the Final
