Blinn College Policies


Blinn College policies on civility, class attendance; scholastic integrity; students with disabilities; final grade appeals; and electronic devices as stated in the Blinn College Student Handbook, Faculty Handbook, Blinn College Catalog and specific technical program handbooks. All policies, guidelines and procedures in the Student and Faculty Handbook and the Board and Administrative Policy Manuals are applicable to this course

Civility Statement

Members of the Blinn College community, which includes faculty, staff and students, are expected to act honestly and responsibly in all aspects of campus life. Blinn College holds all members accountable for their actions and words. Therefore, all members should commit themselves to behave in a manner that recognizes personal respect and demonstrates concern for the personal dignity, rights, and freedoms of every member of the College community, including respect for College property and the physical and intellectual property of others.

      Civility Notification Statement. If a student is asked to leave the classroom because of uncivil behavior, the student may not return to that class until he or she arranges a conference with the instructor; it is the student’s responsibility to arrange for this conference. 

      This statement reflects step one in a possible four step process.  The Incivility Protocol is detailed in the Blinn College Student Handbook.

Attendance Policy

The College District believes that class attendance is essential for student success; therefore, students are required to promptly and regularly attend all their classes. A record of attendance will be maintained from the first day of classes and/or the first day the student’s name appears on the roster through final examinations. If a student has one week’s worth of unexcused absences during the semester, he or she will be sent an e-mail by the College District requiring the student to contact his or her instructor and schedule a conference immediately to discuss his/her attendance issues. Should the student accumulate two weeks’ worth of unexcused absences, he or she will be administratively withdrawn from class.

There are four forms of excused absences recognized by the institution:

  1. observance of religious holy days—The student should notify his or her instructor(s) not later than the 15th day of the semester concerning the specific date(s) that the student will be absent for any religious holy day(s);
  2. representing the College District at an official institutional function;
  3. high school dual credit students representing the independent school district at an official institutional function; and
  4. military service.

Other absences may be considered excused at the discretion of the faculty member with appropriate documentation.  A student enrolled in a developmental course is subject to College District-mandated attendance policies. Failure to attend developmental classes shall result in removal from the course as defined by the College District.

It is the student’s responsibility to officially drop a class he or she is no longer attending.  To officially drop a class the student must obtain the class withdrawal form from Enrollment Services, complete the class withdrawal form, secure the required signatures, and return the completed form to Enrollment Services. The last day to drop with a Q is according to the Academic Calendar.

Scholastic Integrity

Blinn College does not tolerate cheating, plagiarism, or any other act of dishonesty with regard to the course in which you are enrolled.  The following text defines the faculty member’s responsibility with regard to the scholastic integrity expectation for this and all courses at Blinn College.

It is the responsibility of faculty members to maintain scholastic integrity at the College District by refusing to tolerate any form of scholastic dishonesty.  Adequate control of test materials, strict supervision during testing, and other preventive measures should be utilized, as necessary, to prevent cheating or plagiarism.  If there is compelling evidence that a student is involved in cheating or plagiarism, the instructor should assume responsibility and address the infraction.  Likewise, any student accused of scholastic dishonesty is entitled to due process as outlined in Blinn College Board Policy FLB (Local).  The Scholastic Integrity Policy is located in the Blinn College Student Handbook. In a case of scholastic dishonesty, it is critical that written documentation be maintained at each level throughout the process.

Students with Disabilities

Blinn College is dedicated to providing the least restrictive learning environment for all students. Support services for students with documented disabilities are provided on an individual basis, upon request. Requests for services should be made directly to the Office of Special Populations serving the campus of your choice.  For the Bryan campus, the Office of Special Populations (Administration Building) can be reached at (979)209-7251.  The Brenham, Sealy and Schulenburg campuses are served by the Office of Special Populations on the Brenham campus (Administration Building Room 104) and can be reached at (979)830-4157.  Additional information can be found at www.blinn.edu/disability/index.html.

Final Grade Appeal

If a student wishes to appeal a final grade in a course, Blinn College Board Policy FLDB (Local), Course Grade Complaints, outlines the timeline for the appeal and the four steps in the appeal.  This policy is located in the Blinn College Student Handbook.

Electronic Devices

Cellular telephones and beepers/pagers must be disengaged while the student is in the Blinn College Library or any classroom/lab, unless otherwise instructed. Any noncompliance with this policy shall be addressed in accordance with the College District civility policy (administrative policy).  This information is contained in Blinn College Board Policy FLB (Local).

Course Policies


Lecture Exams cover material presented in both lecture and lab, generally in a multiple choice, true/false, matching format. Exams must be taken in a proctored setting such as Blinn's Learning Center. If arrangements are made well in advance, you may be able to take exams at another testing center. If you miss a lecture exam or want to try to improve your grade on one exam, you can take an optional cumulative exam, date listed on schedule. If the grade on the cumulative is higher, it can replace your lowest test grade. If your cumulative exam grade is lower, it will not be used.

 

Lab practicals cover material presented in both lecture and lab, presented as slides, dissected specimens, models, test results, images, etc. You will take 4 lab practicals the day we go over that material. The lab practicals are multiple choice. I will provide you the answer sheets. Ecampus has lab reviews for relevant chapters. You can come in lab to study slides, models, etc. at other times than our scheduled class meetings, as long as instructor teaching at the time is agreeable.

 

Final Exam is cumulative, over the entire course content. Final Exam must be taken in a proctored setting such as Blinn's Learning Center. All 10 week and Summer II finals are the same day, so the line for a computer may be long. I suggest using Assess your learning outcomes in back of each chapter as study guide for final.

Online Classwork is the Required Connect assingments for each chapter as well as the connect assessments for A&P Revealed Modules. These have specific due dates as listed in schedule.

 

Lab work is from the worksheets I give you to complete in lab. Work must be complete and have your name on it when turned in to get credit. If you have an excused absence, grades will remain blank in grade book. To be excused, I must have documentation for the absence within 48 hours of missing class. An unexcused absence will have grade of zero. 

How Do I Learn Material? 

1. Read your text. 

  • My lecture notes are available in ecampus.blinn.edu under lessons, unit and chapter designation. From the ecampus course home page, you can access Tegrity, which has recordings of my lectures. Ecampus also contains lab reviews for each unit. For each chapter, ecampus has “what should I know” review questions over the material. I suggest reading a page or two of the text, then answering the questions, then read some more and answer the questions. What should I know is not turned in for credit.
  • Your Connect Access includes SmartBook, an online tool for you to read the material and review it as you work through the chapters. 

 

 2. Review! 

  • Ecampus home page has link to McGraw Hill Campus. Follow this to connect, which is an online review site for the text. Alternately, here is the URL for your section http://connect.mcgraw-hill.com/class/e_ottreeves_2402SUM14B02
  • With your text, you should have student access code to register. Otherwise, you can purchase access from McGraw Hill via the ecampus link. You can use the free three week trial. When you purchase access, your work will transfer to your account.
    • Each chapter has optional assignments to review and also required assignments which have a firm deadline. From the connect web site, you can follow the link to LearnSmart, which is another type of review for the course material. Students have told me time and again that LearnSmart has really helped them process the material for the course. Some exam questions come directly from LearnSmart.
    • 3% Bonus will be added to your grade based on the average grade across all LearnSmart Modules. Ch16&17 are due with Exam 1. Ch 18-20 are due with Exam 2. Ch 21-24 are due with Exam 3. Ch 25-28 are due with Exam 4 and Ch 29 is due before the cumulative exam.

 

  • A&P Revealed is an online dissection and physiology review site. Access A&P Revealed via the connect site. Please use my Course Content code rQc6q for A&P2’s content edited to highlight your textbook’s information.  When in APR, use the green my button! For each module listed on the syllabus, you will have a connect assessment over that module. Some questions on exams and practicals come from APR.

 

Health Concerns: Eating and drinking are not allowed during class or laboratory work. No open toed shoes in lab! No flip flops, no sandals. 

Problem ResolutionIf you have a complaint about your class, you should first request a conference with your instructor to try and resolve the problems or issues. If the problems or issues cannot be resolved at the instructor level, you should request a conference with the Dean of Science
