Independent Inquiry Flag This course carries the Independent Inquiry flag. Independent Inquiry courses are designed to engage you in the process of inquiry over the course of a semester, providing you with the opportunity for independent investigation of a question, problem, or project related to your major. You should therefore expect a substantial portion of your grade to come from the independent investigation and presentation of your own work. Grading You will be evaluated on the basis of your individual case analyses, group case analysis, mid-term exam, final exam, and in-class discussions. The final grade for the course is distributed among various assignments and activities as presented in table below: Item Weight INDIVIDUAL EVALUATIONS 70% Individual case analysis (2 cases with re-write – 15% each) (2 pages for write-up and up to 4 pages for exhibits) 30% Individual assignment (1 assignment, 10% each) (2 pages for write-up and up to 4 pages for exhibits) 10% Midterm (take home) 15% Class participation (participation – 5%, and 5 quizzes – 2% each) 15% GROUP EVALUATIONS 30% Group Case Analysis (2 assignments - 5% each) (2 pages for write-up and up to 4 pages for exhibits) 10% Group Project (5% proposal, 10% write-up, 5% presentation) 20% Class participation: The quality of our learning environment is contingent on the effective and informed participation of each class member. The goal here is not to dazzle us with your individual brilliance or with the number of comments you make,
Rajiv Garg MIS 375 (Spring 2019) page 3 but rather to help make the class smarter. Note that, in addition to providing new insights to the discussion, it is possible to make the class smarter by asking the right question or by assimilating comments from other students or sources. It is important to note that class contribution is assessed on an individual basis. This is inherently a subjective assessment but will take the following factors into account: preparation, ability to coherently present arguments and to contribute to a discussion, and ability to influence and persuade others in class to agree with your opinions. PLEASE NOTE: attendance in class does not contribute to participation grade. Case analysis (individual/group): Your case analysis grade is based on a 2-page write-up (double-spaced, 12-point font, 1 inch margins) with up to 2 pages for charts, tables, figures, and citations. You case submission is due in Canvas before the first session of the class on the day the case is discussed in class. Your write-up and presentation should address the issues raised in the case narrative and associated discussion questions. However, you are encouraged to go beyond the set of questions that I give you to seed the discussion and to use additional resources to research the background of the firms as you see fit.
