a closed book exam
EXAM: Exam includes both hands-on (70%) and multiple choice short
answer questions (30%). The multiple choice/short answer questions
cover both concepts and hands-on material covered in the class. Bring
at least one blank, formatted 3 1/2 disks with your name, social
security number, course number and semester written on the label. Both
the parts are closed book.
ATTENDANCE POLICY: I take roll in every class. You are expected to
attend every class unless you have a legitimate reason. There will not
be any points deducted for skipping class. Attending the class benefits
you in terms of higher grades and learning experience. Class lectures
and the text are to be viewed as complements, not substitutes.
GRADING PROCEDURES & POLICIES: The exercises will offer the student the
opportunity to integrate many of the concepts presented in class. The
exercises will be assigned as the appropriate material is completed in
the delivery, of the course. Each assignment must reflect a student's
If it is determined that a student's assignment is not the result of
his/her own work, the assignment/project will be given a grade of zero
(0). The student is referred to the Indiana University Student Handbook
for further clarification of academic dishonesty as it pertains to
examinations and assignments. All assignments must be submitted before
the final exam in order to receive a passing, grade in the course.
The usual turn around time for assignments is about 3-4 days. Students
must consult about their assignment grade within one wee from the day
they are returned to them. Similarly, students must consult the
professor within the next mini-session if they have any questions
regarding their course grade from the earlier mini-session.
If you decide to withdraw from the course, please do so by officially
dropping through the registrar's office, missing the classes does not
imply a withdrawal from the course. It means a course grade of F. If
you would like to withdraw, please check, with your academic advisor
for the last day to withdraw from the mini-course.
LATE ASSIGNMENTS: Unless you have an extremely good excuse (acceptable
documentation is required, for example, doctor's certificate, letter
from parents with their Phone numbers etc), the following policy on
turning in homework assignments will be used. A late assignment will
loose 20% of the assignment grade per day late. Assignments turned in
after the start of the lecture (on the day they are due) will be
considered one day late. This is to discourage students doing their
homework during the lecture. Try to get your work done early and avoid
the rush the night before an assignment is due!
EXAMINATION POLICY: If you miss the exam because of an emergency (such
as illness, close relative's death), a university-approved absence, or
an absence approved in advance by the instructor, you will be given an
opportunity to take a makeup during the following week. For all
emergencies, you are required to produce an acceptable proof to be
considered for a makeup exam. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS. It will be your
responsibility to schedule the makeup with the instructor as soon as
possible. If you do not take an exam within the following week of the
scheduled exam, you will receive a Grade of F for the course. All the
special cases will be handled according to the discretion of the
MICROLABPOLICIES: IPFW provides networked labs of PC's in Kettler,
Neff71,ET 305 and Library. The network provides access to numerous
software packages. Ms is an "open lab" concept where you go at your
convenience, outside of class, to perform computer "experiments." Your
professor normally will NOT be present in the lab. The lab supervisor
MAY NOT be able to help you with the assignment. You are expected to
work on your own from the detailed notes taken in class. Should
problems arise regarding assignments, you should seek clarification
from the professor during posted office hours, or schedule an
appointment. Clearly, this means you should begin major lab assignments
well in advance of their announced due dates.
This schedule is tentative and students are responsible for any changes
announced in the class.
