Supplemental material –study guides, lecture slides, lab materials and homework assignments are all posted in Blackboard ( ). To be successful, review the material for that day before and after class. Anticipate 2-3 hours outside of class each week preparing for class. Your email address –WSU (and I) will use your @wsu.edu address. Check your email often. Attendance –counts for your grade (one absence is permitted). I will use a variety of methods for taking attendance. I may take attendance more than once in a class period. Extended absences –For school activities, military service illness, etc. you must inform the instructor as soon as possible; such absences, while permissible will hurt your grade thru reduced comprehension; all course material is due before the last day of class. Labs –they are 1 hour and 50 minutes each week. The first hour will be led by your instructor, but after that your instructor may not be present and this is time for you to work individually. The assignments –there are multiple this semester and they are 50% of your course grade. A brief description of each is provided. In some cases you will need to make time to work on these on campus outside of class time. Anticipate 4-6 hours per assignment. Late assignments are deducted 10%. Working in groups –it is encouraged, but each person must do their own work and submit their own assignment. Add a note of whom you worked with on your submission. Quizzes –there will be approximately 6-8 unannounced, and they are 10% of your grade; they give immediate feedback on your comprehension in relation to my expectations. Use the quizzes to gauge how well you are doing and make adjustments. Poor performance is an indication you may not be preparing properly and likely will not do well on the exam. See the tips for success below. Don’t procrastinate, as it is much harder to correct problems after doing poorly on an exam. Quiz make - up : There are no make-ups for a missed quiz, however a one page, single spaced write up of an IS related event (such as a SIM club presentation) counts for extra credit. Exams –they are 30% of your grade. The dates are in the syllabus, schedule them into your day planner now. Missing an exam is very hard to overcome and make-ups are rarely given (except in extenuating cases). Participation –not a formal grading element, but I do take into consideration attendance, preparation for class, participation in discussions and whether you are paying attention in class when I assign final grades. Academic integrity –it is strictly enforced, and violations can result in failing the course. All infractions are reported. Not only is using an unauthorized resource a violation of academic integrity, but so is giving someone assistance when there is reasonable expectation they will use it to violate the academic standards (e.g. you email someone your assignment).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
