If you have a grade dispute, please submit a hard copy or e-mail explanation of your dispute and I will
reply to you within 48 hours.
ACCESSING YOUR GRADE THROUGHOUT THE TERM:
When you would like to see your grade email me and ask to see your grade report. I will reply within 1
business day with your current scores.
COURSE REQUIREMENTS:
Lecture Material--Lecture material will be presented in the form of PowerPoint lecture notes, class
activities and online class discussion. You will find the Power Point lecture notes on the course web
page.
Laboratory Notebook--A laboratory notebook will serve as your record of events that occurred in the
microbiology lab. It will be a place to outline your experiments, record data and present your
conclusions about your experiments. For those students going into an Allied Health field, the laboratory
notebook will help you develop organizational skills that will be necessary when documenting patient
records. Laboratory Notebooks will be graded for their completeness, accuracy and neatness.
Mystery Microbe Project--The unknown bacteria identification project is a way for you to become a
microbe detective. Think of yourself as a lab technician who receives a patient sample and you must
identify the specimen accurately to offer the patient the best treatment plan. You will perform
experiments, collect data, analyze data and draw conclusions in order to identify your unknown
bacterial species. You will receive a numbered tube the second week in lab and then perform
experiments with your unknown each week. At the end of the quarter you should be able to correctly
identify your unknown bacterial genus and species.
Disease Presentation Project--Individuals or pairs of students will investigate the current literature and
websites about a diseases. Guidelines for these disease presentations will be discussed in class and
posted on our class website.
Midterms--Midterms will take place during the first hour of class. They will be taken in the lab using a
printed, hard copy exam. Midterms will be in the form of short answer, multiple choice, true/false,
short essay, long essay and case study questions.
Final Exam--Like the midterms the final will also be a printed, hard copy exam. The final exam is
cumulative meaning that all chapters will be fair game on the exam. A cumulative final allows you to
review the class material and further store concepts into your long term memory. Don't let this scare
you too much as students have performed similarly to their exams. You will be allowed to bring a
"reference sheet" consisting of a single sided 8.5 x 11 in.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY:
ACADEMIC HONESTY STATEMENT:
http://www.chemeketa.edu/earncertdegree/advising/studyskills/writing/resources/academichonesty/
Learning is built on the fundamental qualities of honesty, fairness, respect and trust. At Chemeketa
Community College, academic integrity is a shared endeavor characterized by truth, personal
responsibility and high academic standards. Any violation of academic integrity devalues the individual
and the community as a whole. Violations of academic honesty include but are not limited to the
following: plagiarism, cheating, collusion, fabrication / falsification /alteration, unauthorized
submissions, and sabotage / tampering.
Definition of Plagiarism:
Plagiarism is defined as representing the words, ideas, or work of another as one’s own in any academic
exercise. Plagiarism consists of taking the words or substance of another work and either copying or
paraphrasing without giving credit to the source. Plagiarism is applicable to written, oral, and artistic
work. The following examples are only some of the many forms plagiarism may take:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Word-for-word copying of work written by someone else.
Failure to give proper credit for ideas, statements of facts, or conclusions derived by
another.
Failure to use quotation marks when quoting directly from another, whether a paragraph,
sentence, or phrase.
Close and extended paraphrasing of another work without acknowledging the source.
Definition of Cheating:
Cheating is the act of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit for academic work through the use of
dishonest, deceptive, or fraudulent means. The following are only some of the many forms cheating may
take:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Copying another’s work on a test, paper, or project.
Using unauthorized materials in an exam or collaborating on work to be turned in for credit
where the instructor disallows such collaboration.
Taking an exam for another student, purposely allowing another student to copy during a
test, or providing coursework for another student to turn in as his or her own effort.
Fabricating, falsifying or misrepresenting data or results from experiments, interviews or
surveys.
Submitting the same work in more than one class for credit without permission from the
instructor.
By taking this course, you agree to adhere to the Academic Honesty Guidelines. Infractions, such as
cheating or plagiarism, WILL NOT BE TOLERATED and will be dealt with according to the policies of CCC.
Any such infractions will constitute a violation of the college policy and will result in an appropriate
consequence (e.g., zero on the assignment, an F for the course, etc.) at the discretion of the instructor
and college officials.
TECHNOLOGY RECOMMENDATIONS AND RESOURCES:
Information Technology Help Desk at (503)399-7899 or Distance Education at (503)399-5191.
Technology Recommendations Specific to this Course:
1. MS Word (if you do not have MS Word, please access a computer that does to download and print
the Study Guide assignments and then complete them by hand.)
2. Power Point (if you do not have PowerPoint you can view lecture notes using the pdf files and Adobe
Acrobat. For our disease project where Power Point is required you may need to complete your project
using the Computer Lab found on the second floor of Building 6 on campus.)
3. Adobe Acrobat available as a free download and used to view the pdf files.
CLASSROOM RESPONSIBILITY:
Full participation is expected of each student. All class and laboratory assignments must be completed
individually and originally unless otherwise stated. If you miss a class, it is your responsibility to
determine material missed, obtain handouts, and be aware of the class schedule. The ultimate basis for
determining acceptable behavior and procedure in this class will be the Chemeketa Creed (printed in the
college catalog) http://www.chemeketa.edu/ Basically, respect others as you would have them respect
you.
CHEMEKETA'S DIVERSITY STATEMENT:
Chemeketa is a community college enriched by the diversity of our students and staff. Each individual
and group has the potential to contribute in our learning environment. Each has dignity. To diminish
the dignity of one is to diminish the dignity of us all. (from the college catalog)
http://www.chemeketa.edu/
HOW MUCH TIME DO I NEED TO DEDICATE TO MICRO?
Be prepared to spend at least 2 hours outside of class for every hour inside of class. You will be in class
6 hours a week and expected to study at least 12 more hours during the week. Times may vary from
week to week. To prevent the amount of class time from getting overwhelming a great idea is to
schedule shorter blocks of time into your schedule on a regular basis. For example, plan to study for 3
hours 5 days a week. You can even split that time up into 3 1 hour blocks to make it fit in to your
schedule. Procrastination is a very bad option in this class since if you get behind it is extremely difficult
to catch up so organize your schedule in advance!
TIPS FOR SUCCESS:
1. Start with the "big picture" of each chapter by reading the Chapter Summary found at the end of
each chapter.
2. Then, start filling in the "details" by completing the study guide assignments in a timely manner.
3. Assess your knowledge using the self-quizzes at the end of the chapter and the LearnSmart study
modules on the textbook website.
4. Establish study partners with whom to study and discuss issues in microbiology.
5. Review each week's material and try to apply it to your everyday life.
Note: Please contact me ASAP if you are having difficulties with this class.
