Assessments: Assessments for this course will include weekly online quizzes and four proctored exams. The four exams must be taken at a Testing Center so that they can be proctored. The exams will be closed book. Early in the semester we will work out where you are going to take the proctored exams. If you take the exams at any of Yavapai College’s Testing
Centers the proctoring will be free. If you are in a location that requires a non Yavapai College affiliated Testing Center you may have to pay a small fee to take the exams. (Usually about 15 – 30 dollars) You are responsible for this fee to take the exams. Every effort will be made to find a free testing center. There will be 11 online quizzes covering the lecture and lab material. The questions on the quizzes will be similar, but not identical, to those found on the exams. The point of the quizzes is to prepare you for the types of questions you will see on the exams. There will be weekly online labs. At the beginning of the semester students will be required to complete a quiz covering the syllabus for the class.Grading (credit) criteria: Exams: 4 proctored exams at 125 pts apiece………………...…...500 pts. Quizzes: 11 online quizzes at 25 pts. apiece .……………….……..275 pts. Labs: 13 at 25 pts. apiece……………………………...…...…..325 pts. Syllabus Quiz……………………………………….....……..20 pts. Total Points 1,120 pts. Letter Grades: The first criterion to pass the class is to achieve a 70% average on the proctored exams. Once that criterion is met the letter grades will be assigned as follow: A = 1,008 – 1,120 pts. B = 896 – 1,007 pts. C = 784 – 895 pts. D = 672 – 783 pts. F ≤ 671 pts. Labs: Labs will be graded for quality and completeness. Each lab is worth 25 points. Labs will be assigned weekly and will be due on Wednesdays at 5 pm. Quizzes: Quizzes will be given online about once a week. Each quiz will be worth 25 points and will be due on Wednesdays at 5 pm. Exams There will be four closed book comprehensive proctored exams during the semester. Each exam will be worth 125 points. The average score for the four exams must be a 70% in order to pass the class. Absences: No late work will be accepted. All assignments will be posted one week before they are due so that students can fit the assignment into their particular schedule. All assignments must be completed by their due date to receive credit. No extra credit will be assigned. Student Resources (as applicable) Library services: Library services are available at the Prescott Campus and the Verde Valley Campus libraries. Both libraries are members of a countywide library network, which provides access to a wide-range of information and resources at libraries throughout Yavapai County. Possession of a
College library card entitles students to access materials housed at member libraries. Instructors may place required course materials on reserve in the library or make assignments that require the use of library resources. Learning Centers: A Learning Center is available on the Prescott and Verde Valley Campuses. These centers provide a variety of learning support for students including tutoring, adaptive computer and equipment for students with disabilities, and a networked general computer lab. Tutoring: Call for details: Prescott 776-2085 or Verde Valley 634-6562Online resources and Online writing tutoring for any academic subject is available at services: www2.yc.edu/content/learningcenters Instructor Procedures and Institution Policies Attendance: Students are expected to attend and participate in all class meetings, laboratories, and field trips. A student who expects to be absent due to another school-sponsored activity or compelling personal reason must make prior arrangements with the instructor. All course work must be made up as directed by the instructor. A student who does not adhere to instructor and College attendance requirements may be dropped from the course as defined in the Yavapai College General Catalog. Course withdrawal: After the drop/add period closes, students may withdraw until the deadline for student-initiated withdrawals. Withdrawals result in a "W" on the permanent transcript. For semester-length classes 14 weeks in length or longer, the withdrawal deadline is November 1 in the Fall semester, April 1 in the Spring semester. For classes of 4 days to 14 weeks in length, withdrawals are permitted until the class is 50 percent completed. For classes of 1-3 days in length, withdrawals are permitted until the class is 50 percent completed. A "Y" is noted on the permanent transcript for an administrative withdrawal. More information can be obtained from the Admissions & Registration Office. Academic integrity: Honesty in academic work is a central element of the learning environment. The presentation of another individual’s work as one’s own or the act of seeking unfair academic advantage through cheating, plagiarism or other dishonest means are violations of the College’s “Student Code of Conduct.” Definitions of plagiarism, cheating, and violation of copyright and penalties for violation are available in the Yavapai College General Catalog. If a student is found to be cheating on any assignment they will receive a letter grade of F or the class.Student code of conduct: Respect for the rights of others and for the College and its property are
fundamental expectations for every student. The “Student Code of Conduct” outlines behavioral expectations, and explains the process for responding to allegations of student misconduct.Disability support services: Yavapai College is committed to providing educational support services to students with documented disabilities. Academic support services or accommodations for mobility impaired students must be arranged through the ADA Coordinator (Prescott Campus: 928.776.2079 or Verde Valley Campus: (928.634.6563). Cell phone and pager: Yavapai College is committed to providing a quality learning environment. All cell phones and pagers must be placed in a non- audible mode while in classrooms, computer labs, the library, the learning center, and testing areas. Cell phones and pagers must be used outside these facilities. Preventing Harassment: Students are expected to respond and write in a professional and appropriate manner when activities are assigned to create scenarios, discuss opinions, present on a selected subject, or post to a web board or email. Students and faculty each have responsibility for maintain an appropriate learning environment. Faculty have the professional responsibility to treat all students with understanding, dignity and respect, to guide classroom discussion and to set reasonable limits on the manner in which they and their students express opinions. Professional courtesy and sensitivity are especially important with respect to individuals and topics dealing with differences of race, culture, religion, politics, sexual orientation, gender variance and nationalities. All correspondence between instructor and students and between individual students must be of a professional nature. Any inappropriate language (profanity) or correspondence of a threatening or harassing nature will result in the student being immediately dropped from the class.
