METHODS OF PRESENTATION: The instructor lectures utilizing the Bio 211 objectives, the Laboratory manual, and handouts presented during class. Sections of material are assigned as homework from the Crossword Review textbook as possible pop quizzes during the lecture class. Laboratory models will be heavily utilized with extra study time required in the Study Lab.

  • 5. 5 GRADE CALCULATIONS:   Grades are assigned as follows: At least 3 lecture tests and 3 laboratory tests for a total of up to 60% of the final grade. (Small lab tests given weekly are averaged as one laboratory test). Pop quizzes to count up to 20% of the final grade. A cumulative final examination for up to 20% of the final grade.      MAKE-UP TESTS: A test that is not taken by the student shall be handled in the following manner: A test that is not taken by the student shall be handled in the following manner: 1) A missed major lecture or laboratory test will be replaced by the final UNCURVED examination score. 2) One missed pop quiz is dropped at the end of the semester. Up to two additional missed pop quizzes will be replaced by the final UNCURVED examination score. Any additional missed pop quizzes will remain a zero in score. 3) Weekly laboratory tests will be averaged to compose a major laboratory test score. One missed weekly lab test will be dropped. Any other missed weekly laboratory test will be counted as a zero. 4) Missing two major lecture and/or laboratory tests may result in the withdrawal of the student from the class. ATTENDANCE POLICY: It is the belief of the Biology faculty that regular attendance to class is necessary for student success. When a student is absent, it is the student’s responsibility to obtain all notes, handouts, announcements, (including test dates), etc. If a student is absent more than 10% of the contact hours prior to the last withdrawal day for the semester, the student may be administratively withdrawn by the instructor. A student should consult his or her instructor regarding that
  • 6. 6 instructor’s use of the administrative withdrawal policy. If a student desires to appeal an instructor’s decision on administrative withdrawal, a petition must be submitted to the head of the Biology Department prior to the last withdrawal date. TEST POLICY: Major tests will be scheduled approximately one week in advance. Students should not be absent from announced tests. The syllabus for each instructor’s course includes policies for makeup of missed announced tests. GRADING POLICY: Each instructor will inform the students in writing at the first meeting of class how the final grade for that particular course will be determined. The grading scale for the Biology Department is the following: A = 90.0 – 100 % B = 80.0 – 89.9% C = 70.0 – 79.9% D = 60.0 – 69.9% F = 59.9 or below INCOMPLETE GRADES: If after the withdrawal date but before final grades are turned in; a student, with a passing grade, has personal or family circumstances which prevent the student from completing the assignments in class then, upon approval of your instructor, a grade of “I” may be given. It is the student’s responsibility to contact and discuss the circumstances causing the need for the “I” grade with the instructor prior to the end of the final exam period. A grade of “I” will not be given unless the student requests and receives approval for the “I” grade from the instructor. The unfinished assignments and tests causing the “I” must be completed in a satisfactory manner before a date in the next term designated by the instructor. Grades for any tests not taken before the designated date will be assigned a grade of zero, the final course grade averaged, and the resultant letter grade turned in to student records.
  • 7. 7 AUDITING POLICY: A student may register to audit a class at registration or during the drop/add period. It is understood that the student will attend class and testing may be required if audit is used for course validation. WITHDRAWAL: A student may choose to withdraw from a course up until the designated last withdrawal date for each semester. Students anticipating transfer to other academic institutions should be informed that some institutions restrict acceptance of transfer students with excessive withdrawals (this is typically three withdrawals). IT IS THE STUDENT’S RESPONSIBILITY TO WITHDRAW FROM THIS CLASS AND TO SUBMIT APPROPRIATE PAPERWORK TO STUDENT RECORDS. CHEATING POLICY: Academic dishonesty includes giving, receiving, or using unauthorized aid on any academic work. It includes using notes, looking on papers of other students and copying the work of other persons. The procedures for handling all matters of academic dishonesty, especially cheating, is described in the Student Handbook. You are expected to read and understand the procedures and penalties. CARE OF DEPARTMENT EQUIPMENT: Proper care of equipment is essential in the Biology Department. The equipment used may be expensive or difficult to replace. Those who fail to take care of equipment may be subject to disciplinary action and/or be barred from participation in laboratory. SPECIAL NEEDS: Any student who requests accommodation of special needs because of disability must present documentation to verify his/her disability. Documentation
  • 8. 8 must be obtained from Ms. Jackie Bradham (AD 214, Phone: 250-8176). Accommodation will be determined by the instructor and student, following documentation, on a confidential basis and in a manner that is consistent with the objectives, outcomes and academic quality of the course. ACADEMIC GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE: Inquiries and grievances of students concerning academic policies and/or classroom procedures in a Biology Department course should be discussed and resolved with the instructor. Student concerns will be addressed in a serious and professional manner. If after discussion with the instructor, a problem is not resolved, it should next be brought to the attention of the Department Head, Dr. Susan O’Brien, AH 333C, (250-8360). CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR: Eating, drinking, and the use of tobacco products are prohibited in classrooms and laboratories. The use of headphones, cellular phones and beepers are prohibited in classrooms (machines to be inactive) unless approved by the instructor. Cellphones must be placed on quiet mode. If you must talk while the instructor is teaching, please leave the room. You may quietly return within a few minutes. If talking or behavior is considered disruptive by the instructor, you may be asked to leave the classroom and may be marked absent for the day. If, for any reason, you do not want to share concerns with me or you are dissatisfied with my response to your comments, please contact any of the people listed below.* Department Head – Biology: Dr. Susan O’Brien Office Location: 120(AH) 333C Telephone Number: 250-8360 Office of the Dean: Office Location: 104(UT) 105 Telephone Number: 250-8187 *In most situations, it is best to bring teaching/learning issues to the department head.
