Grading Policy: Homework will be assigned during the semester.   All quizzes and exams MUST be taken in class during the regularly scheduled class time. All graded material must show work to receive credit, and the work must be neat with the answer clearly marked for credit. Each student should review returned work, and bring any grading disputes to the instructor’s attention the day the work is returned. After that, the grade stands as is. Incomplete Grades will only be given in accordance with Blinn policy.  If there are more than 4500 points of quizzes, project, homework, etc. , all points will be added in, but only divided by 4500.

Daily assignments will require computer internet access. 

Students may use their own computer and internet provider or they may complete assignments on campus in one of the Blinn College computer labs.  It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that he/she has appropriate and reliable computer equipment and high-speed internet access.  Furthermore, computer trouble or internet trouble in no way excuses the student from completing assignments by assignment due date.  Blinn College computer labs and Learning Centers have appropriately configured computers and internet access for this course.

Criteria

Course evaluation instruments shall consist of at least four major grades including the final examination. Other evaluation methods may include quizzes, homework, and projects. Competency will be measured by a 70% minimum performance level over the entire course. At the end of the semester, the scores from daily grades, maple labs and major exams will comprise not more than 80% of the final grade. A comprehensive final exam will determine at least 20% of the final grade.

Blinn College Policies


All policies, guidelines, and procedures in the Blinn College Catalog, Blinn College Board Policies, and the Blinn College Administrative Procedures Manual are applicable to this course.

Notice of any action taken under these protocol and procedures, by Blinn College or its employees, may be delivered by hand, through the U.S. Postal Service, or electronically to the student’s BlinnBuc e-mail account. Notice shall be deemed received upon actual receipt, on deposit in the U.S. Mail, or upon entering the information processing system used by Blinn College for BlinnBuc e-mail accounts, whichever first occurs.

Civility Statement

Blinn College holds all members of the college community, which includes students, faculty, and staff accountable for their actions and words. Therefore, all members should commit themselves to behave in a manner that respects and demonstrates concern for the dignity, rights, and freedoms of others, including respect for the physical and intellectual property of all members of the college community.

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 within two school days of being notified of the suspension from class. This statement reflects step one of three possible steps in the incivility process.  The Incivility Protocol is detailed in the Blinn College Catalog and in Blinn College Board Policy FLB (LOCAL).

Attendance Policy

Class attendance is essential for student success; therefore, students are required to promptly and regularly attend all classes. A record of attendance is maintained from the first day of classes and/or the first day the student’s name appears on the roster through final examinations. Students who accrue one week’s worth of absences during the semester will be sent an e-mail through their Buc account requiring them to contact their instructor and immediately schedule a conference to discuss their attendance issues. Students who accumulate two weeks’ worth of unexcused absences, may be administratively withdrawn from class. There are four forms of excused absences recognized by the institution:

  1. Observance of religious holy days - Students should notify their instructor(s) no later than the 15th day of the semester concerning the specific date(s) for absences for any religious holy day(s);
  2. Representing the College District at an official institutional function;
  3. Dual credit students representing the high school or independent school district at an official institutional function; and
  4. Military service.

Other circumstances may be considered an excused absence at the discretion of the faculty member with appropriate documentation. College District-mandated attendance policy applies to all coursework; including coursework in developmental/ non-credit courses. Failure to attend developmental classes will also 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. Students interested in dropping a course or withdrawing from school may do so by logging into myBlinn and clicking on the “My Records” tab, clicking on “add or drop classes” under registration tools, and  then selecting the current registration term and “webdrop” from the action drop down menu. The final step is scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking submit. Students should contact Enrollment Services at 979-830-4800 for assistance with webdrop or to drop due to: severe illness, care for a sick, injured, or needy person, death of a close relative/relation, military duty, military duty of a close relative/relation, or change in work schedule. The last day to drop a class with a Q is set according to the Academic Calendar.

Scholastic Integrity

The Scholastic Integrity Policy is located in the Blinn College Catalog, in Blinn College Board Policy FLDB (LOCAL), and the Blinn College Administrative Procedures Manual. A student accused of scholastic dishonesty is entitled to due process as outlined in these documents.

It is the responsibility of students and faculty members to maintain scholastic integrity at the College District by refusing to tolerate any form of scholastic dishonesty, including cheating, plagiarism, or any other act of dishonesty.  If there is compelling evidence that a student is involved in cheating or plagiarism, the instructor will address the infraction.

Students with Disabilities

Non-Discrimination Statement

Blinn College does not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities in the recruitment and admission of students, the recruitment and employment of faculty and staff, or the operation of any of its programs and activities, as specified by applicable federal laws and regulations. The designated coordinator for Blinn College’s compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendment Act (ADAAA) is Patricia E. Moran, M.Ed., 902 College Avenue, Brenham, TX 77833, (979) 830-4157. Students should make arrangements for disability service directly with each campus on which they attend classes. Students enrolled on the Brenham, Schulenburg, and Sealy campuses should contact (979) 830-4157 for more information. Students on the Bryan Campus should contact (979) 209-7264.

Services for Students with Documented Disabilities

Students with documented disabilities must self-identify and provide current, appropriate documentation of the disability to the Office of Disability Services (ODS) prior to receiving services. Students are encouraged to contact this office as early as possible to initiate services. Direct services to students with disabilities are provided in the following areas:

  • Assessment of needs and appropriate services
  • Provision of classroom and testing accommodations
  • Assistance in orientation and registration procedures
  • Counseling on disability related issues

Information, education, referrals, and consultation about specific disabilities are available to interested parties on request. For answers to specific questions or to request an information packet, contact the Office of Disability Services on the specific campus you will be attending.

Final Grade Appeal

If a student wishes to appeal a final course grade, the guidelines and timeline for a three-step appeal process are detailed in the Blinn College Catalog, in Blinn College Board Policy FLDB (LOCAL), and the Blinn College Administrative Procedures Manual.

Course Policies


Grading Policy: Homework will be assigned during the semester.   All quizzes and exams MUST be taken in class during the regularly scheduled class time. All graded material must show work to receive credit, and the work must be neat with the answer clearly marked for credit. Each student should review returned work, and bring any grading disputes to the instructor’s attention the day the work is returned. After that, the grade stands as is. Incomplete Grades will only be given in accordance with Blinn policy.  If there are more than 4000 points of quizzes, project, homework, etc. , all points will be added in, but only divided by 4000.

No online homework assignments will be opened up at the end of the semester.

Make-up Exam Policy: It is the student’s responsibility to inform the instructor prior to or immediately after all absences. Make-up work will only be given in the case of an excused absence. Bring all proper documentation needed for your absence, and expect the instructor to verify your excuse before determining if make-up is allowed. NOT ALL ABSENCES ARE EXCUSED! The percentage grade on the final exam will be the replacement for the missed exam.  If more than one regular exam is missed, the make up exam will only replace one missed exam, and the rest of the grades will be zero.

Communication Policy: The relationship between instructor and student is a formal one.  While there is clearly room for all involved to be friendly, it is still a formal relationship.  Therefore, any communication that uses “chat lingo”, “text lingo”, or anything else that is not proper English will not be recognized by the instructor.  This includes, but is not limited to, email, work for class, work on quizzes, and work on tests.

SPECIAL NOTICE:  All pagers and cell phones must be turned OFF during any and all tests, quizzes, exams, or assignments.  Simply being on “silent” mode is not enough.  Therefore, if I see them out, you are considered using them, and therefore cheating.

*** NO recording of the instructor is allowed without obtaining written permission first.

 Schedule   All test dates will be announced a class day ahead of time, and this schedule is subject to change. All exams may be comprehensive. The instructor will decide and announce this when the test date is announced. THE FINAL IS COMPREHENSIVE. Once final exams start, the class cannot be dropped, and a letter grade (A,B,C,D,F) will be recorded.   

The Q-Drop date for the spring 2017 semester is April 21st

As stated in current college policy, if a student is officially dropped from a class on or prior to the “Q” date, a grade of “Q” is assigned for the course.  If a student is officially dropped from a class after the “Q” date, a grade of “QF” is assigned for the course.  

Students may access their student email account by entering myBLINN and clicking on the email icon near the top right corner.  (For new students, your Blinn College email address is of the form firstname.lastname##@buc.blinn.edu, where ## is the last 2 digits of your Blinn ID.)

Attendance Details:

Should a student accumulate the equivalent of two weeks’ worth of unexcused absences, s/he will be administratively dropped from class. The following chart indicates two weeks’ worth of absences:

Fall & Spring

TR 4

 

Example:  In a TR class, students will receive a warning notification via Blinn College student email after 2 days of unexcused absences and will be dropped after 4 days of unexcused absences. 

As stated in current college policy, if a student is officially dropped from a class on or prior to the “Q” date, a grade of “Q” is assigned for the course.  If a student is officially dropped from a class after the “Q” date, a grade of “QF” is assigned for the course.  

Students may access their student email account by entering myBLINN and clicking on the email icon near the top right corner.  (For new students, your Blinn College email address is of the form firstname.lastname##@buc.blinn.edu, where ## is the last 2 digits of your Blinn ID.)
