The examswill include multiple choice, true/false and/or short answer questions. Answers will be evaluated based on content in terms of accuracy of information and ability to analyze the issues. Good answers will demonstrate that you have read and understood the chapters, and actively participated in classroom discussions. Exams will be taken online in the Canvas LearningManagement System.

You will be given plenty of time to complete each assignment. Due dates for each assignment will be announced in Canvas and are contained in the syllabus. It is the student’s responsibility to frequently check announcements for this information and to be aware of the due dates in the syllabus. Early completion of assignments 8
is strongly encouraged! Because I do not extend assignments, I drop the lowest Quiz, Discussion, and LearnSmart grades. MISSING EXAMSIf you have a university-approved reason for missing an exam, arrangements should be made at least one week prior to the scheduled exam. If you have any other valid reason for missing an exam, (medical emergency, family emergency) the final exam will be re-weighted accordingly. If you do not have a valid reason for missing an exam, a zero grade may be assigned.
