Evaluation


Criteria

Types of evaluations and related weights
Type Weight Topic Notes
Tests 45%

A total of five (5) exams will be given throughout the semester. The first four will be given at the conclusion of each of the four sections and the fifth is a cumulative final given during final exam time. All of the exams will be given ONLINE, offered within a window of time indicated in the course calendar below (last pages of this syllabus). I don’t offer study guides, but will share with you ways to study the information that will be helpful to you. The exam information will be largely based on (1.) the lecture material, so watching the online lectures and taking notes are vitally important, (2.) material from handouts and activities you will complete online (distributed in the ecampus content module), and (3.) readings from your textbook.  Your tests are open book and open notes, so you should take excellent notes while watching the lectures and definitely purchase the newest edition of the book. Each exam is worth 9% each (total 45%).

Capstone Project 15%

You will complete one (1) capstone project towards the end of the semester. This project is an architectural scavenger hunt. More details to follow. It is worth 15% of your grade, so do a great job!

Discussion Forums 20%

You are required to participate in 2 discussion forums that are content-related. There will be other discussion forums that are designed to help introduce yourself, address FAQs, foster group collaboration, etc, but the 2 forums that are part of this grade will be completed in sections 1 and 3 and related to the content we have covered up to that point. Each DF is worth 10%.

Participation Assignments 20%

You will complete one quiz at the end of each sub-module. These quizzes pertain only to the sub-module you will have just completed and contain sample questions from the upcoming test. This will allow you the opportunity to practice for the test on a smaller scale. You will also have 2 participation discussion forums that will also contribute to this grade. Each item is worth 2% (total 20%).

Extra Credit 0%

The following are extra activities and assignments that you can (and should!) complete for bonus points added to your final average. Each of these 10 assignments is worth .5 added to your final average for a total of 5 possible points: a book searching quiz (1) technology surveys (2), video quizzes (5), survey to improve the course at the end of the term (1), and the official Blinn course evaluations (1).

Late Work

All late work will be penalized. For every 24 hours that work is late, 10 points (equal to one letter grade) will be deducted. THE WEEKEND IS YOUR GRACE PERIOD – for anything that is due on Fridays. You have the weekend to turn those things in before you will start to be penalized for late work.

Digital vs Hard Copies

I will not collect hard copies of any of your work, which means everything must be turned in online (and must be readable and files I can open). I CANNOT open mac files (key, etc) – only Microsoft and PDF files will do!

Online Attendance

Yes, this class is online, which means attendance is measured by your actually logging into the course (not just checking messages or logging into ecampus, but our class). Ecampus will track your log ins and will notify you when you haven’t logged in. Please note that two weeks of no log ins = getting dropped. 

YOU MUST Watch Everything

Folks, you have to watch the lectures in order to see the quiz and test links. Watch everything and read everything. Contact me if you have questions.
