The above numbers are point cut offs for each letter grade. There will be no “rounding up” to the
next grade no mater how close you are. Your grade is based on how much anatomical information
you learn. There will be no extra credit assignments offered.
Graded Activities:
Lecture Exams: Lecture exams will cover only the material presented since the last exam. Lecture
exams can not be made-up unless under extraordinary, documented circumstances. Lecture exams may
be composed of a combination of multiple choice, true/false, matching, short answer and essay
questions.
Final Exam: The final exam will be 150 points of material from the entire course (including lab). It will
be a multiple choice exam.
Lab Exams: Lab exams will be given in a round robin format where the students rotate between 22-26
timed stations with ~3 questions at each station. Lab exam questions will address the identification of a
labeled structure and be short answer (you must be able to spell the structures correctly). Due to the
time involved in setting up a lab exam there will be no lab exam make-ups.
Lab Quizzes: Quizzes are worth 10-20 points each and will be given every day there is not a lab exam.
They will address information from previous lab or lecture meetings. These quizzes will primarily be
composed of short answer or group discussion questions. Group quizzes are indicated on the lab
calendar. Some will be open notes but they will also be timed. BE PREPARED OR YOU WILL NOT
FINISH ON TIME. No group quiz make-ups.
Clean up: Points will be subtracted from your total if you routinely leave your lab area messy.
Attendance/ Late Policy:
I do not take role on a daily basis so there is no official attendance policy. There will be certain
assignments however that can not be made up (lab exams, discussion quizzes). Also, your grade on
exams will be negatively affected by missing lecture material. Please make every effort to come to class
daily and on time.
Exams and quizzes will be given at the beginning of every class. If you are late and miss a lab quiz you
will not be able to make it up. If you are late beginning a lecture exam you will be given until the
amount of time allotted to the rest of the class has elapsed (55 minutes from the start of class). Being
late to a lab exam will result in you receiving a zero for some of the stations.
Additional Business:
You are expected to follow the honor pledge on every assignment:
“On my honor as a University of South Carolina at Aiken student, I have neither given nor received any
unauthorized aid on the assignment/examination. To the best of my knowledge, I am not in violation of academic
dishonesty.”
If you have a physical, psychological and/or learning disability which might affect your performance in this
course please contact the Office of Disability Services, 126A B&E, (803)641-3609 as soon as possible.
Policy for Portable Electronic Devices: The use of any portable electronic devices, including cell phones, pagers,
MP3 players, iPods, etc., during class is not allowed for any reason unless prior approval has been given to a
student from the instructor or unless required for the course. If you are planning to have any of these devices in
class, they must be turned off and stowed away for the duration of the class period. If you use a portable
electronic device during a test, quiz, or other assessment, you are eligible to receive a failing grade on that
assignment. IF I SEE A CELL PHONE IN YOUR HAND DURING AN EXAM I WILL TAKE
YOUR EXAM AND GIVE YOU A ZERO – NO EXCEPTIONS! I encourage you to take notes on your
laptops if you wish but please do not visit disruptive and distracting websites during class.

To excel in this class you will have to spend time outside of the scheduled time period to study lab
content. The lab is open to you 24/7 so please use it. You can get in by using your ID cards in the
card-swipe on the outside door and SBDG 104 door. Students who spend time in lab studying as a
group do much better then those who study alone. I encourage you to set up study groups.
A note about anatomy…….
Anatomy is not an easy subject and you may find it to be the most challenging subject you have ever
encountered. There is a minimum amount of knowledge you are expected by your college (nursing, prepharmacy and exercise science) to obtain in this course. I am obligated to provide you with this material
and to test you on it. I have done my best to pare down the content as much as possible while staying
within the expectations of your college but you will still find the amount of material challenging. You
must put forth effort to study the material on a regular basis to be successful in this course. I highly
recommend that you set up study groups to go over the material before exams. Try very hard not to miss
any classes. Take careful notes of what I say in class. If you find it difficult to keep up with my lectures
please use a tape recorder to record them. If you have trouble understanding a concept, please come to
see me as soon as possible. I can also help you with study and note taking tips if needed.
Note: This course requires dissection of preserved animals and organs (10% formalin or other comparable
preservative). If you are pregnant or think you are pregnant, please consult your obstetrician as he/she may not
allow you to complete this laboratory; therefore, you may need to take this course at a later date.
The Academic Success Center: Penland 108
If you find that your usual study habits are not sufficient for doing well in this class please think about
visiting this center. They are experts in helping students discover the best way to study according to
their learning styles and offer tutors at no cost to you.

You can request private tutoring sessions through the Academic Success Center website. I suggest
you request a tutor early in the semester.
