  3. Introduction to K-12 Technology EDUC 2263/Spring 2010 Weekly Discussion Posts 30% (2% each) Projects 30% (5% each) 2 Tests 20% (10% each) Portfolio Project 20% Discussion posts and project assignments are graded for content and demonstration of an understanding of the subject matter. Proper grammar and punctuation is expected. Tests consist of multiple choice, short answer, and essay questions. The portfolio project will be created using Google Sites, and will be a culmination of the semester’s activities, resulting in a useful tool for students to use once they complete the course. Grading Scale: 90-100 A 80-90 B 70-79 C 60-69 D < 59 F AUDIT POLICY: Students auditing a course will be wait-listed until the first day of class and then will be registered on a space-available basis. Students auditing a course pay all tuition and fees associated with the course. Since no grade is assigned for this audit (visitor) status, it will not transfer to another college or university, it will not qualify a student for Pell Grant or Veteran's benefits, and it will not be listed on the college's transcript or count toward full-time status. A registered student may change from an audit status to a grade status only during the specified period of late registration. Once instruction begins, no student may change from a grade basis to an audit status. ATTENDANCE POLICY: Regular attendance is a critical element in student success. Therefore, students are expected to attend all regularly scheduled class sessions and to complete all assigned class work. Except for extreme circumstances, students are not permitted to be absent from scheduled tests without prior approval of the instructor. Make-up arrangements with an instructor are the responsibility of the student. Students are required to attend 85% of all class hours scheduled for a course. A student who does not meet the 85% standard is considered to be excessively absent. The College reserves the right to withdraw a student for excessive absenteeism. Excessive absenteeism may also result in failing grades, academic probation or suspension and loss of financial aid. If a student is judged to be excessively absent, the instructor will report this immediately to the Counseling Center for follow-up action. The Counseling Center will assume the responsibility of getting the student to a counseling session with the instructor as needed. Every effort will be made by faculty and staff to help the student with any academic difficulty. Throughout this process, it is recognized that the instructor is the judge of the final grade a student receives in any course. ADA POLICY: National Park12/10/2004 10:06 AM3/22/20103/22/2010 Community College is committed to providing educational opportunities to all qualified individuals, and in doing so, complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 which states that no qualified person shall, because of their disability, be denied access to, participation in, or the benefits of any program or activity operated by the College. Students having questions about accessibility or requesting reasonable accommodations as indicated in the ADA or Section 504 should contact Ms. Audrey Turk in Student Services.
  4. Introduction to K-12 Technology EDUC 2263/Spring 2010 LATE WORK: It is understood that students have family and employment obligations outside of this class; however, students are expected to meet the deadlines listed for submitting coursework. Each student will be given one “freebie”, to be used if needed for an extenuating circumstance. Excluding tests, all other late assignments will result in a lowered grade for that assignment, one (1) point for each day the assignment is late. Students should contact me prior to the test date if an absence is expected. STUDENT RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES: Please review the NPCC student handbook for information related to your rights and responsibilities as a student. http://www.npcc.edu/Students/Documents/2008-2010_Handbook.pdf Academic Dishonesty: Academic dishonesty is unacceptable. It includes plagiarism, lying, helping others to be dishonest, and cheating. Consequences for such behavior could involve reworking the assignment or retaking an exam, no credit for the assignment or exam, or dismissal from the class.
