1. Final Comprehensive Exam
2. Unit Tests
4. Homework Assignments
Final comprehensive exam will be administered in two class periods. Each unit test weighs 15%. A missed unit test grade is a zero. Four class quizzes will be given. Each class quiz weighs 5%. Ten homework assignments will weigh 2% each. Class participation will be based on the students' class attendance and contribution to class discussions.
VI. GRADING PROTOCOL
In order to pass this course, a student MUST obtain a MINIMUM GRADE of 60% in the class grade.
Studentsí final grade in this course is based on a percentage scale as listed below:
LETTER GRADE = GRADE PERCENTAGE = GRADE POINT
A = 90 - 100% = 4.00
B = 80 - 89% = 3.00
C = 70 - 79% = 2.00
D = 60 - 69% = 1.00
F = below 60% = 0.00
VII. EXAMINATION MAKE-UP
Since responsible behavior--including daily class attendance--is expected of all DeVry students, absence from a scheduled
examination is considered to be an extremely serious matter. It is school policy that no faculty member shall be required to schedule a make-up examination unless the student presents a statement from a licensed physician stating that he or she was physically unable to attend school on the day of the exam. The faculty member may schedule a make-up for other equally
serious reasons, provided that arrangements are made prior to the date of the exam. An individual faculty member may also
schedule a make-up exam if, in his or her opinion, a situation exists that does not fall under the provision of this policy
but merits special consideration.
VIII. INSTRUCTOR REQUIREMENTS
All quizzes, tests, and the final comprehensive exam will be briefly reviewed a week before the date announced. There are no make-ups on any homework assignments, tests, quizzes, projects, or the final comprehensive exam except with a written, valid excuse. Any make-up work assigned, upon review of valid excuse, is required to be completed within one week from the original date. All students are required to complete each homework assignment, quiz, unit test, and final comprehensive exam by the appointed time. No extra time will be allowed. Group participation, including during group quizzes and unit tests, if any, is encouraged for items selected by the instructor. Selected accounting applications, presentations, and assignments necessitate researching through the required resources, recommended readings, the internet, and library resources. Please do retain your required resources for possible future use.
Each student is required to attend every lecture and laboratory in which he or she is enrolled. A swipe-card terminal in each classroom is used to record attendance electronically. Students are responsible for arriving before class begins, sliding their identification through the wall-mounted reader, and remaining for the duration of the meeting. Students who are absent for two or more days must contact their assigned Academic Coordinator for advisement. Students who miss more than five (5) consecutive days of school are in violation of the DeVry attendance policy and will be dismissed.
As announced in the class.
XII. ACADEMIC INTEGRITY
Ideas and learning form the core of the academic community. In all centers of education, learning is valued and honored. No learning community can thrive if its members counterfeit their achievement and seek to establish an unfair advantage over their fellow students.
The academic standards at DeVry are based on a pursuit of knowledge
and assumes a high level of integrity in every one of its members. When
this trust is violated, the academic community suffers injury and must act to
ensure that its standards remain meaningful. The vehicle for this action is
the Academic Integrity Policy outlined in the Student Handbook.
The Academic Integrity Policy is designed to foster a fair and impartial set
of standards upon which academic dishonesty will be judged. All students
are required to read, understand, and adhere to these standards, which
define and specify the following mandatory sanctions for such dishonest
acts as copying, plagiarism, lying, unauthorized collaboration, alteration of
records, bribery, and misrepresentation for the purpose of enhancing
one's academic standing.
The first recorded offense will result in the student receiving zero credit
for the entire paper, exam, quiz, lab, homework assignment, or other
graded activity in which the incident of academic dishonesty occurred. No
partial credit may be given. Where the incident involves a graded
assignment normally subject to a "drop" option, the student may not
exercise that option.
The second recorded offense will result in the student receiving a failing
grade for the course in which the second offense occurs. The second
offense need not be in the same course, program, or term as the first
offense to invoke this sanction.
The third recorded offense will result in the student being permanently
expelled from the DeVry system. Again, the third offense need not be in
the same course, program, or term as either the first or second offense to
invoke this sanction.
Thank you for reviewing the syllabus. You are welcome to my class.
The success of each one of my students has been, is, and will always be very important to me.
