Attendance Requirements: All students are expected to attend all class sessions and are
responsible for knowing the material covered. No quizzes or exams can be made up unless
arrangements prior to the absence have been made. Any student missing more than 25%
of the class will fail the class.
Disability Statement: In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990
(ADA), it is the policy of Wayland Baptist University that no otherwise qualified person with
a disability be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to
discrimination under any educational program or activity in the university. The Coordinator
of Counseling Services serves as the coordinator of students with a disability and should be
contacted concerning accommodation requests at (806) 291-3765. Documentation of a
disability must accompany any request for accommodations.
Your instructor is Dyslexic and is very sensitive to and dedicated to ensuring that no
discrimination on any basis, including disability, is tolerated in this class. And, you get points
when I transpose numbers, etc!!! My disadvantage is your advantage, but you must pay
attention- if you snooze, you loose!
Course Requirements and Grading Criteria: suggested
Homework: Homework will be assigned at the end of each section in the text. You
are allowed to assist each other on homework but a student must not turn in
someone else’s work as their own. Late homework will not be accepted, unless you
can convince me otherwise. If there are extreme circumstances, contact your
Instructor.
Exams: During the semester there will be exams/tests/quizzes after each section,
at the end of the chapter and a humongous final- you lucky-duckys you. The class
period prior to each exam will include a review. The final exam is comprehensive and
all students will be required to take the Final Exam.
Grading:– Points are assigned for all work- homework, quizzes, tests and final.
Your
grade is found by dividing your total points accrued by the total points possible! Then
grades are assigned to this percentage as shown below:
A: 90 – 100
B: 80 – 89
C: 70 – 79
D: 60 – 69
F: Below 60
Students shall have protection through orderly procedures against prejudices or
capricious academic evaluation. A student who believes that he or she has not been
held to realistic academic standards, just evaluation procedures, or appropriate
grading, may appeal the final grade given in the course by using the student grade
appeal process described in the Academic Catalog. Appeals may not be made for
advanced placement examinations or course bypass examinations. Appeals are
limited to the final course grade, which may be upheld, raised, or lowered at any
stage of the appeal process. Any recommendation to lower a course grade must be
submitted through the Executive Vice President/Provost to the Faculty Assembly
Grade Appeals Committee for review and approval. The Faculty Assembly Grade
Appeals Committee may instruct that the course grade be upheld, raised, or lowered
to a more proper evaluation.
Academic Honesty: Disciplinary action for academic misconduct is the responsibility of the
faculty member assigned to this course. The faculty member is charged with assessing the
gravity of any case of academic dishonesty, and with giving sanctions to any student
involved.
