  • 3. Assessments: The assessments for the class will include five closed book exams as well as a closed book comprehensive final exam. The final exam will cover the material from the entire semester. Also, lab assignments will be completed weekly. Grading (credit) criteria: Exams: 5 exams at 100 pts. apiece……..……………………………..500 pts. 1 comprehensive final exam………………………………….200 pts. Labs 20 at 15 pts. apiece………………………………...………...300 pts. 1,000 pts. The letter grades will be assigned using the points below. A = 900 – 1000 pts. B = 800 – 899 pts. C = 700 – 799 pts. D = 600 – 699 pts. F ≤ 599 pts. Labs will be graded based on the quality and completeness of the lab. Labs: Exams: The exams will be closed book and will consist of material covered in lecture and lab. Absences: Students may miss one exam for any reason (no documentation required). The exam must be made up by the following class period to receive credit. If a student is absent for additional exams documentation providing an explanation must be provided (ie. Dr’s note). The student will not receive any extra credit available on the exam and the exam must be made up before the next class period. 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 YavapaiCounty. 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 LearningCenter 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 634-6562
  • 4. Online resources and services: Online writing tutoring for any academic subject is available at 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 March 19th. 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. All cell phones must be stowed before beginning an assessment. The presence of a cell phone on a student’s desk during an assessment will be construed as cheating and the student will receive an F for the class. Any incident of cheating or plagiarism on any assignment in the class will result in the student receiving an F as their letter grade for 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: YavapaiCollege 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: YavapaiCollege is committed to providing a quality learning environment. All cell phones and pagers must be placed in a nonaudible mode while in classrooms, computer labs, the library, the
  • 5. learning center, and testing areas. Cell phones and pagers must be used outside these facilities. No cell phones are allowed in the students possession during any assessment. All cell phones and other electronic devices must be stored in a place not immediately accessible to the student during assessments. 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. Inappropriate language or objectionable material will not be tolerated and could result in a failing grade for the class. Students and faculty each have responsibility for maintain an appropriate learning environment. Students who fail to adhere to such behavioral standards may be subject to discipline. 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.
