Course Requirements and Evaluation

 

 

COURSE REQUIREMENTS

 

Students are required to attend to online class activities, read the text, and take all the tests described in this syllabus. Evaluation will be based on the student's ability to demonstrate understanding of the topics discussed throughout the course.

 

EVALUATION

 

Evaluation is divided into the following main parts:

 

 

1.   There are four multiple-choice exams, which account for 56% of the grade (12.5% each). The exams will be drawn from the text, lectures, and media presented in the class.

 

2.    Online Tests, on Georgia View, which account for 30% of the grade.

 

3.   Class attendance, which accounts for 10% of the grade.

 

4.    Participation in class discussions, which accounts for 4% of the grade.

 

 

 

 ABSENCE

 

For every day of absence, one point is deducted from the ten points of class attendance. If absence exceeds ten days, a student maybe assigned a failing grade (F), unless absence is justified on grounds of severe conditions, such as hospitalization and death in the family.
