Grading Overview Exam 1 Exam 2 Exam 3 Assignments Final Project 20% 20% 20% 10% 30% Grading: A = 93 and above B = 83 – 86 C = 73 – 76 D = 63 – 66 A- = 90 – 92 B- = 80 – 82 C- = 70 – 72 D- = 60 – 62 B+ = 87 - 89 C+ = 77 - 79 D+ = 67 – 69 F = 59 and below Description of Evaluation Measures Exams: Exams will be a combination of objective and subjective questions. Exam1 will cover material presented up to the point of the exam. Exam 2 will cover material presented immediately following exam 1 up to the point of exam 2. The third exam will serve as the final exam and will be cumulative. Assignments: There have been many trends in the fitness industry – some have been successful, some have caused more harm than good. You will be asked to write about (via Moodle post) and discuss (in weekly meetings) these trends. Specifically, you will research the history and evolution of each fitness movement. You will compare the philosophies and scientific principles underlying the trends with the ACSM’s guidelines for testing and prescription. You will give your opinion on the merits of each based on your knowledge and background in exercise physiology. Final Project: This project requires you to perform a comprehensive exercise prescription. For this exercise prescription all appropriate testing will be performed. The exercise prescription will be based on the results of various assessment and testing procedures, which may include, but are not limited to: health history lifestyle analysis, risk factor assessment and stratification, GXT, muscle strength and endurance assessment, body composition assessment, etc. You will create a 3-month exercise prescription as a result of the testing procedures and specified goals. Your prescription will include, cardiovascular and resistance training, flexibility, and nutrition. In addition, your prescription will include the variables of exercise prescription such as mode, frequency, duration, intensity, etc. This prescription is similar to the type of approach that you would take working in a commercial or corporate fitness facility or clinical facility such as in cardiac and/or pulmonary rehabilitation. The project must be typed and formally presented in a 3-ring binder with the appropriate tabs included (tabs must also be typed). There will be no handwritten material included with your project. All pertinent information for this project will be covered in class throughout the semester. Attendance Policy Attendance at weekly meetings is mandatory. If you need to reschedule a meeting, contact me prior to our scheduled time so that alternative arrangements can be made. The University defines excused absences as absences stemming from (a) participation in University sponsored activities and (b) compelling and extenuating circumstances beyond a student’s control. A student who anticipates an absence of this nature must provide adequate notice and documentation to his / her instructor regarding the nature of the absence. For additional questions about the College attendance policy, refer to the Academic Catalog. Academic Integrity Academic integrity is the foundation of the pursuit of knowledge. All members of the academic community are expected to be dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge in an honest, responsible, respectful, and ethical manner. A violation of academic integrity includes any act which portrays a member of the academic community as having acquired knowledge through legitimate study or research which, in fact, has been stolen. Examples of intentional violations of academic integrity include, but are not limited to, the following: Submitting another person’s work as one’s own, that is, plagiarism. This includes, for example: copying during examinations; purchasing papers or taking them from Internet/World Wide Web resources; copying papers, reports, laboratory results, or computer work; quoting or paraphrasing library or Internet/World Wide Web sources without proper citations. Misunderstanding of the Policy will not be accepted as an excuse for dishonest work, and students are advised to read the complete University Policy on Academic Integrity printed in the Academic Catalog. Violations of the Academic Integrity policy will be reported to the Department Chair and the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Sanctions may include receiving a failing grade for the examination, assignment, or course, or being dismissed from the University.
