COURSE REQUIREMENTS AND EVALUATION CRITERIA
HOW TO SUCCEED IN THE COURSE: Read the chapter that is being discussed before coming to class. Work on the assignments and review material on a regular basis. Once a chapter has been completed in class, go back and read the lecture handout, lecture notes and the text book. If you feel lost at any point in the course, please see me as soon as possible. Do not wait until the last minute to get help.
HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR LECTURE GRADE: First, you make a total of all the grades that you earn from your quizzes and tests. Second, you divide your total by 700 for estimated lecture grades; third, you time the second with 100; fourth, you time the third with 0.70. Last you add the fourth with your lab grade to find the overall final grade
You are responsible to record your grade for each quiz and test and make the calculation if you wish to know what your status in class during the semester. Please do not ask me to do that for you. I only provide you the final grade at the end of the semester.
GRADING SCALE AND OVERALL STANDARDS
The lecture grade is 70% of the course grade and based on quizzes, exams, and activities points. The laboratory grade is 30% of the course grade. Lab exams and quizzes are used to evaluate laboratory progress. A passing grade must be received in the laboratory in order to pass the course. The student is expected to complete the course with a 70% or better score. Successful completion of the course work will result in the following grade. 90-100= A; 80-89= B; 70-79= C; 60-69= D and below 60 is not passing. Please discuss any foreseen problems in advance with the instructor.
ATTENDANCE POLICY: Regular attendance to all classes is expected. Please try to be on time. You are responsible for knowing materials covered during lecture whether you are in class or not. It is not necessary to call if you miss a lecture, except missing an exam.
THE ACADEMIC CENTER FOR EXCELLENCE - WRITING ASSISTANCE, TUTORING SERVICES AND DISABILITY SERVICES: The Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) can be found on the Alexandria campus in AA 229 and reach by phone at 703-845-6054 or 6363. ACE houses the Writing Assistance Center, Tutorial Services and Disability Services. If you feel you require any of these services please feel free to contact their office. ACE website: http://www.nvcc.edu/campuses-and-centers/alexandria/campus-resources/academic-center/index.html
Specifically regarding Disability Services, if you have special needs, problems and/or require special accommodations, please address these with me at the beginning of the semester. Reasonable accommodations will only be made for students who have a verifiable need. If you are seeking accommodations based on a disability, you must provide a disability sheet, which can be obtained from the counselor for Disability Services. At the Alexandria campus the disabilities counselor is J’Naudia Hunter-Phillips, email@example.com. Her office is now located in room 193. FIRE/EMERGENCY EVACUATION PROCEDURES: In case of emergency, please follow the emergency procedure as discussed on the first day of class and as posted in the classroom.
STUDENT SAFETY: NVCC is a place for learning and growing. Students should feel safe and comfortable anywhere on this campus. In order to meet this objective, a student should: (a) let the instructor, supervisor, Dean of Students or Provost know if any unsafe, unwelcome or uncomfortable situation arises that interferes with the learning process; and (b) inform the instructor, within the first two weeks of classes, if the student has special needs or a disability that may affect the student’s performance in this course.
If you question whether the college is closed during a storm, listen to a local radio or television station for this information. You may also call 703-323-3300 to hear the college’s recorded message about school closure. Please note that the college may decide to close for day classes and yet open for evening classes, or be open for day classes and close for evening. Please listen or look closely to the weather announcement for the decision that pertains to evening class. You also need to check BB for closing announcement and also for assignments.
ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: When College officials award credit, degrees and certificates, they must assume the absolute integrity of the work done by you; therefore, it is important that you maintain the highest standard of honor in your scholastic work.
Academic dishonesty cannot be condoned. When such misconduct is established as having occurred, it subjects you to possible disciplinary action ranging from admonition to dismissal, along with any grade penalty the instructor might, in appropriate cases, impose. Procedural safeguards of due process and appeal are available to you in disciplinary matters.
Academic dishonesty, as a general rule, involves one of the following acts:
Cheating on an examination or quiz, including (1) giving, receiving or soliciting of information and the unauthorized use of notes or other materials during the examination or quiz. (2). Buying, selling, stealing, or soliciting any material purported to be the unreleased contents of a forthcoming examination, or the use of such material. (3). Substituting for another person during an examination or allowing such substitution for one's self. (4). Plagiarism. This is the act of appropriating passages from the work of another individual, either word for word or in substance, and representing them as one's own work. This includes any submission of written work other than one's own work. (5). Collusion with another person in the preparation or editing of assignments submitted for credit, unless such collaboration has been approved in advance by the instructor. (6).Knowingly furnishing false information to the College, forgery and alteration or use of College documents or instruments of identification with the intent to defraud.
