ONLINE ASSIGNMENTS:
Each chapter will have an online assignment. The
assignments are located in the “Assessments” section of the course and must be
submitted for grading before taking the quiz for the corresponding chapter.
 QUIZZES, MONITORED & FINAL EXAMS:
Complete unit quizzes, monitored and final exams online.
There are monitored exams which you need to schedule with your counselor/proctor to
take by the due date listed on the course calendar. You are NOT allowed to have any
materials with you during the monitored exams (including but not limited to: textbooks,
notes, other websites cannot be open, IPOD’s, cell phones, mp3 players, etc.) You will be
provided with a blank sheet of paper and a pen/pencil when you arrive for the exam.
Quizzes and monitored exams must be passed with an 80% in order for the next quiz to
become available. Final course exam must be passed with at least a 80% in order to
take a clinical course with Region 2 Professional-Technical Academy.
You may retake any of the quizzes or monitored exams until you have mastered the
80% required. However make sure to plan accordingly and give enough time to pass each
by the due date listed on the course calendar. Retakes of the midterm and final exam must
be scheduled with your counselor/proctor.
Grading:
It is very important to me that you succeed in this course. You need to stay on schedule with
the course so that you are not trying to complete all of the work at the end of the semester.
If you need an extension on an assignment, you need to contact me for prior approval.
The following is the course grading scale.
A
90 – 100%
B
80 – 89%
C
70 – 79
D
60 – 69
F
Below 60
Academic Honesty:
Academic honesty mandates the use of one’s own thoughts and materials in writing papers,
taking of tests, or completing other classroom or shop/lab related activities. Students who aid
others in any infraction of academic honesty are considered equally guilty. The concept of
academic honesty is designed to assure a uniform standard against which to evaluate all
students and to prevent cheating. Students are expected to report infractions to their
instructors. VIOLATION OF THIS POLICY MAY LEAD TO A STUDENT’S FAILURE OF THIS
COURSE. See your school’s student handbook for other related policies and possible
consequences.
