Evaluation


Criteria

Types of evaluations and related weights
Type Weight Topic Notes
Tests 50% Proctored using Tegrity (see notes)

Exams: 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, so I recommend buying the text or sharing it with a classmate. Buying the ebook is an option, but note that we won’t do any of the ebook activities (you would just buy it to read the content online instead of in hand). Each exam is worth 10% each (total 50%). PLEASE NOTE: Our fourth exam will be proctored (per Blinn’s requirement). YOU MUST HAVE A WEBCAM IN ORDER TO COMPLY WITH THE PROCTORING REQUIREMENT. We will use Tegrity for proctoring (see here for more info about Tegrity requirements and please note that I also use Tegrity for hosting our lectures, so you need to be sure you meet the tech requirements found on this page: https://www.blinn.edu/acadtech/training/selfhelp/tegrity/index.html

Projects 30%

Projects: You will complete two (2) projects this semester. The first will be a discussion forum project and the second will be a scavenger hunt project completed towards the end of the semester. Both are individual efforts. More details to follow. These are worth 15% of your grade each, 30% combined, so do a great job on both!

Participation Assignments 20%

Participation Assignments (Online Assessments): You will complete one (1) 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 two (2) participation discussion forums that will also contribute to this grade. Each item is worth 2% (total 20%).

Extra Credit 0%

Extra Credit Assignments: 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/extra practice 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 due on Friday. You have the weekend to turn those things in before you will start to be penalized for late work.

Digital vs Hard Copies

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.
