                                                              ABSENCES

Illness:                        Call your division and the receptionist or designated staff person to
                                report your illness. The division will post a notice of class cancella-
                                tions on the classroom door and take necessary notification steps.

Class Cancellation:             Classes will be automatically dismissed if the instructor does not
                                report to the classroom, laboratory or shop within 10 minutes after
                                the scheduled starting time of the class. In cases where the instructor
                                will be absent for the day, a notice will be posted on the blackboard
                                or on the door of the room where the class meets.

                                If inclement weather makes travel too dangerous, notice of cancella-
                                tion of FVTC classes will be released by the administration. Classes
                                will meet as scheduled unless local radio stations announce that
                                school is closed.

                                When an instructor is unavoidably absent, the instructor should
                                notify students in a timely manner. FVTC office staff will attempt to
                                notify students (long distance) who are not within the instructor's
                                local calling area but instructors will be responsible for notifying
                                "local" students from their class rosters.

                        HOW DO I APPLY TO DEVELOP CURRICULUM?
All curriculum projects require a curriculum application form. There are two forms to choose from.
The applications can be found on the Instructional Development and Delivery Division (IDD) Web site at:
http://www.fvtc.edu/tp2.asp?ID=CIDD&pix=007

One form is used for new courses or major revisions. These projects are for monetary compensation/special
grant project or for time in schedule and require Dean/Associate Dean approval. (The project funding is
based on a priority-needed basis within the department.) If approved by the Dean, the application is submit-
ted to the IDD Director, Marge Jeffers. Marge gives final approval for funding the project or denies the
project funding.

The second form is used for no monetary compensation or for minor revisions.

Here are the steps to follow:
                                                   Instructor
   Fill out appropriate application form.
        Note: If the activity is a revision and you do not want to use the existing manuals in the Campus
        Store, notify the IDD immediately so a HOLD can be placed on your old manuals with Printing
        Services. In addition, include the GL chart string number for discarding old manuals.
   Submit the application form to your Dean/Associate Dean for approval.
   After the Dean’s approval, submit the application form to the IDD.
                                                        IDD
   Generate a contract; send a copy of the contract and copy of application to instructor.
   Send copy of application to TA.
                                                     Instructor
   Sign the contract and return it to IDD. The contact and application are kept on file in the IDD. The
      instructor should keep copies for his/her own records.
                                                         TA
   Add course manual information to PeopleSoft.
                                                        IDD
   Create or revise the course manual.
   Send a copy of the manual to the instructor for review.
   After instructor approval, send a New or Revised Notification to instructor, TA and Printing Services.
      Note: The date on the New/Revised Notification matches the date on manual cover.
   Place the electronic manual in the Print Job Folder for Printing Services.
                                                         TA
   Enter the manual date on PeopleSoft.

Note: This 13-step process addresses the IDD staffs’ and instructors’ involvement. There are additional
steps for Printing Services, the TAs and the Campus Store.

       CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT APPLICATION PROCESS CHECKLIST


MEMO
        TO:             CURRICULUM DEVELOPERS
        FROM:           JONATHAN W. IWANSKI, INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN SPECIALIST
        RE:             CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT PROCESS



When developing curriculum for Fox Valley Technical College, this is the memo given to
instructors:
                    NOTE: All curriculum development projects funded through the IDD Budget,
                      must receive prior dean approval based on priority standard.

                    1. Complete application forms, which are available in the Center for Instructional
                        Development & Delivery and on the CIDD Web site at http://www.fvtc.edu/
                        tp2.asp?ID=CIDD&pix=007.
                    2. Receive your dean’s or associate dean's approval for the project.
                    3. Submit your application to me.
                    4. I will review the application and set up a time to discuss it with you. We will
                        decide if you will require assistance and/or training prior to beginning the
                        project.
                    5. If your application is accepted, your dean and Marge Jeffers will approve fund-
                        ing, (you will be notified of the approval) after which you may begin the project.
                    6. A contract will be generated and sent to you to sign and date.
                    7. When your curriculum is complete, sign and date the Instructions and Sign-off
                        sheet (blue) from your application packet. You can find this sheet at the same
                        Web site as the application form.
                    8. Submit your curriculum and the blue form (will be white when printed from the
                        Internet) to a content expert/team for review.
                    9. When the content expert/team signs off on your project, submit all paperwork
                        and an electronic copy of your curriculum to me.
                    10.When I have reviewed and approved your curriculum, I will sign off on it and pass
                        it on to your dean.
                    11. After your dean’s approval, you will need to submit your hours on Time and
                        Labor so that you get paid. If you are unsure of how this process works,
                        download the file with step-by-step instructions found on the IDD Web site
                        at: http://www.fvtc.edu/tp2.asp?ID=CIDD&pix=114. If you still experience
                        problems inputting your hours, contact Bev Kelley, 2564.
       PLEASE NOTE: It is imperative that your projects are submitted in an electronic format. You can either e-
       mail the files to me or submit them on a disk. The files should be in a Word 97 or higher format.
       Our department formats the student curriculum submitted to include a FVTC header and copyright date before
       the curriculum is sold in the Campus Store.

B. Verify your work with the Team or Content Expert during the curriculum development process and at the
   completion of your project. Curriculum development is not a linear process. Therefore, it is helpful to verify your
   curriculum as you develop it. You will likely find that even if you think you have completed a portion of the curriculum, you
   may need to revise sections as you move through the curriculum development process.

E. What happens next if there is going to be a Curriculum Manual? Submit all electronic files to Jonathan Iwanski.
   A master file will be maintained on the curriculum server (deptets). To access your finished curriculum manual
   electronically, map your drive to deptets/groups. The directions are located on the IDD Web site at http://
   www.fvtc.edu/tp2.asp?ID=CIDD&pix=020. This will give you read-only access to your files. The WIDS 7 files
   that have been centralized can also be accessed from your drive once you've mapped your drive to deptets/groups.
   If you need assistance in mapping your drive to access any of these files, contact Bev Kelley, 2564 or e-mail
   kelley@fvtc.edu.
    If you indicate that these curriculum materials will be sold in the Campus Store, the IDD staff will set up
    a Print Master electronically (pdf) and submit that to Printing Services. The IDD staff will also notify the Technical
    Assistant in your division that this has been done. It is the responsibility of the writer/developer to contact the
    Technical Assistant to be sure that a curriculum manual is listed on the textbook list. The writer/developer is
    responsible for requesting instructor copies from Printing Services for all who will teach this course.
    Note: If you do not use a curriculum manual, please note that printing multiple copies for in-class distribution is costly to
    your department.
    What happens if it is an Internet Course?
    All courses are put in Blackboard by the instructor. Anyone interested in teaching in Blackboard needs to take the
    Internet Qualification Series prior to writing/teaching. Please see Terri Langan, Rm E117 or Vicki Sahr, Rm G129.

                                     COPYRIGHT AND FAIR USE
         Four factors determine Fair Use:
1. Purpose of use: OK if purpose is instructional, not for profit.
2. Nature of the work: OK if work was created for research or scholarly use and not for commercial gain.
3. Amount and substantiality of use: OK if it doesn’t equal the basis of the work itself, i.e., this factor is
   based on the length, duration and qualitative measure of the material used in relationship to the whole—
   even if it’s brief, if it’s the basis of the whole work, it’s not fair use.
4. Market effect: OK if use will result in little or no effect on the author’s ability to make money from the
   work.
         3 “Tests” to help define educational Fair Use:
1. Brevity: Specific amounts or relative portions of a work can be used for educational purposes without
   seeking permission.
2. Spontaneity: A decision to use comes too late to seek permission. For Web-based materials, this is a
   shaky proposition since if materials remain online, they are not considered “spontaneous” and
   permission is required.
3. Cumulative effect: The number of times a work can be used without permission is based on how much
   effect repeated use would have on its profit-making ability for the author.

1.    Academic                 FVTC's cost centers.
      Organization

2.    Aidable                  A course in which FVTC receives state aid (ex. Aid code 10, 30, 31, 50).


3.    FTE                      Full-time equivalency. One FTE is equal to 30 credits. The amount of FTEs
                               generated determine state aid.

4.    Non-Aidable              A course in which FVTC does not receive state aid (aid codes 00, 01, 02 and
      Course                   60). All costs for the class are to be retrieved from the course fee paid by the
                               student.

5.    Stacked Class            Any class that is held at the same time, at the same location, in the same room,
                               with the same roster of instructors and is held during the same span of time as
                               is another class. The class with the most instructional hours is designated as the
                               Primary class by having its own class number used as the Stack ID. All classes
                               in that stack will have the Stack ID of the Primary class.


6.    Catalog                  The number assigned by the state for each approved course. Formerly known
      Number                   as state course number.
      (formerly known
      as State course
      number)

7.    Class Number             A 5-digit number representing a specific class. We use the class number in
                               place of the course number plus section number for convenience. This number
                               is FVTC assigned and is not reported to the state. However, the full catalog
                               number, including the 3-digit section number, is reported to the state as a part
                               of our FTE submission and our annual Staff Accounting Report. The first digit
                               of the class number designates to which student accounting term it belongs.

8.    Term                     Semester.

9.    Units                    Credits.

                               TEXTBOOKS/WORKBOOKS/MATERIALS


  There is a master textbook list and all instructors teaching the same course use the same
  textbook(s). When a textbook change is to be made, a textbook change form (see following page)
  needs to be completed and given to the designated staff person in each division who orders the
  textbooks—usually the Technical Assistant (TA).

  Changes in texts must be submitted in February for summer classes, in March for fall classes and
  in August for winter classes. Check with the designated staff person for exact dates which change
  slightly each year.

  Curriculum manuals written by instructors and printed at FVTC are ordered in the same way as
  commercial texts. Deadlines for new curriculum and major revisions are April 1 for fall
  classes and October 1 for winter classses. Printing masters are electronically prepared by the
  IDD staff and stored on a curriculum manual server (deptets). Printing Services also keeps a copy
  of the printing master.

  When a class is scheduled, the designated staff person initiates the order for all texts, both
  commercial and those printed in house, that the student will need to purchase at the Campus Store.

  If you experience any problems with texts, notify your designated staff person.

   A copy of the course curriculum application or no funding/revision application is sent to the
  Technical Assistant from the IDD staff to indicate to the Technical Assistant (TA) that a manual is
  being created or revised. If revisions are made to curriculum manuals created at FVTC, any re-
  maining copies of the previous edition will be sold in the Campus Store. NOTE: When submitting
  the curriculum application, be sure to check the appropriate line i.e.:

  ___ Use any old curriculum manuals in the Campus Store.
  ___ Discard old curriculum manuals and print all new.

  If you want to replace all copies in the Campus Store with the updated edition, you must notify the
  TA in your division. If you choose to replace the previous edition with the updated manuals, your
  division must absorb the cost and provide a GL String Account number to the Campus Store.

                     DUPLICATING MATERIALS—APPLETON CAMPUS

  Materials for class can be duplicated in advance through your course coordinator or by going to
  the Staff/Faculty Copy Center in Room G150A . This center is open from 7:30 a.m. until 9:30
  p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and Fridays from 7:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. for immediate print-
  ing needs. If you need assistance to operate the printers, pick up the Help Phone located in Room
  G150A and it will automatically dial the person on call.

  Printing Services is in the Graphic Arts Center of Excellence located in the Bordini Center
  across Bluemound from the main campus. Printing Services is staffed from 7:30 a.m. until 10:00
  p.m. Monday-Friday. Printing Services provides a pick-up and delivery service to the Copy Center
  on the Appleton main campus. Printing Services work orders can be placed in the IN basket lo-
  cated on the work table in the Copy Center. Blank work orders are located next to the IN basket.
  Printed materials will be completed by the due date listed on the work order. Completed materials
  can be picked up from the appropriate shelf in the Copy Center.

  For either printing area, you will need to supply a four-digit copy code number and chart field
  string so the proper account is charged. Also, be sure to attach the Printing Services work order
  form to your request. The Copy Center does not require a work order, but you will need the four-
  digit copier code number. These should be obtained from your immediate supervisor. Copiers in
  office areas should not be used for copying in quantity (over 20). If you have a special printing
  concern, please check with Printing Services, 735-5788.

  You are welcome to pick up cases of 8.5" x 11" white or reams of 8.5" x 11 colored paper in the
  Copy Center for your department's use.

  Note: Please check the Regional Center Campuses' information beginning on page 100 for spe-
  cific policies on printing materials.

                                  REGISTRATION


  Each student must register and pay for the course in order to receive credit for
  it.

  Refer any questions concerning registration to the Registrar's Office located in
  E104.

  Occasionally it may be necessary for instructors to register students for their
  class. Therefore, it would be wise to become familiar with FVTC's registration
  form and process. See sample on the next page of the registration form.

  Be sure the registration form is filled out completely. The information on the
  registration form is required for state and federal statistical reporting. Please
  remind students to check one of the boxes in the disability section at the bottom
  of the form.

  When the fee is collected, mark the registration form "paid" and initial it. The
  student should be given the pink copy as a receipt. Forward other copies and
  the fees to your immediate supervisor or Registrar's Office.

                                        INSTRUCTOR HOURS


When you accept the responsibility of teaching for the FVTC District, you are expected to be in your
classroom at least 15 minutes prior to the starting time. Upon completing a class, the instructor should be
the last one out of the room.

Normally, standard classes are two to three periods per session. A class period is 50 minutes. This does
not necessarily mean a straight 50 minutes and then a 10-minute break. How you divide the instructional
and break time is up to you, your topic and your students. Labs and shop settings may be scheduled differ-
ently to meet student needs. Be sure your students are getting the instructional time for which they
paid.
                                               ATTENDANCE

Students in degree programs and credit courses at Fox Valley Technical College are expected to attend
classes regularly. Attendance is the responsibility of the individual student, including notification as required
by the instructor and arranging for the completion of missed course work.

Specific attendance standards for courses, labs, internships, and clinicals may be established by instruc-
tional departments and authorized by the Division Dean. If specific attendance requirements are estab-
lished, they must be communicated to students in writing (via the course syllabus) by the instructor at the
first class session. Departments with specific attendance requirements must also ensure that such policies
are on file with the Registrar’s Office for cases of student grievances. Absences are not a legitimate reason
to lower student grades unless specific attendance requirements are established as essential to success in
the course and clearly communicated to students.

Departments and instructors are expected to make reasonable accommodations for student absences due
to illness, family emergencies, extreme weather conditions, and other extenuating circumstances.

If a student is absent from an assigned course for two consecutive weeks, the instructor must immediately
withdraw the student by entering one of the following grades in the grading system:
• W - if the withdrawal occurs during the first 50% of the course or due to extenuating circumstances as
      determined by the instructor
• F - if the withdrawal occurs during the final 50% of the course and the instructor determines there are no
     extenuating circumstances involved

Recording the last day of student attendance for withdrawals in a timely manner is very important to comply
with federal requirements for students receiving financial aid.

Students may appeal a withdrawal decision due to attendance issues. This appeal needs to be done in
writing, following the standard student appeal procedure.

                                     CLASS CANCELLATION


  Because of Inclement Weather:

  If weather conditions are extreme, an announcement will be made by the Administrative Office over
  several radio stations (ex.): WHBY, WNAM, WOSH and WDUX and TV station Channel 11 stating
  that classes are being canceled. The announcement will state that classes are being canceled, not that
  the school is being closed.


  Because the Instructor is Ill or Out of Town, etc.:

  If you know far enough in advance that you will be out of town, please inform your class at the regular
  session a week or so before. Your supervisor will need to approve planned class cancellations.

                                            REFUND POLICY

  The FVTC course refund policy applies to all students (including those students receiving financial aid).

  Except in the case of cancellation or discontinuation of classes, students must request a refund for all
  fees paid to the college. In extenuating circumstances, the district may make discretionary judgments
  and exceptions.

  For all classes, regardless of length:

  100% Refunds
  If the district cancels the class, the refund is 100 percent of all fees paid.

  If the student applies for a refund before the first class meeting which the student is scheduled to attend,
  100 percent of student fees shall be refunded.

  The date used for calculating refunds will be the date on which you officially notify the FVTC Regis-
  trar of withdrawal from the program. In the case of an unofficial withdrawal, the refund will be calcu-
  lated on the last day of attendance as documented by the college.

  80% Refunds
  Eighty percent of all applicable student fees are to be refunded if application for refund is made before
  or at the time 10% of the potential hours of the course instruction has been completed.

  60% Refunds
  Sixty percent of all applicable student fees are to be refunded if the application for refund is made after
  10% but before more than 20% of the potential hours of the course instruction has been completed.

  0% Refunds
  No refund is to be made if the application for refund is made after 20% of the potential hours of in-
  struction has been completed.

  Students who are no-shows or cease to attend without notifying the Records and Registration Office
  will not receive a refund. However, they are responsible for payment of course fees and tutition.
  Note: For classes less than three weeks in length, there will be no refund unless it is applied
  for before the day the class begins.
  *A student who withdraws from one class and adds another during the 80 percent refund period will
  receive a 100 percent refund of fees paid for the class dropped.

  Final grades are recorded on permanent transcripts at the end of each course. All course grades must
  be processed within 48 hours of the ending date of the course. Fox Valley Technical College
  offers several levels of instruction that are not interchangeable and that have unique grading structures.

          IP                   "In progress" is used in Technical Diploma Programs for internal purposes only.

  Instructors need to make students aware of their responsibility to inform them immediately at the time of
  an extenuating circumstance preventing them from completing the requirements for a course in the
  prescribed time period. Extenuating circumstances include, but are not limited to, illness, accident and
  death in the family. With the approval of the instructor, an "extended" grade can be recorded for that
  student. A student may have up to 90 days maximum to complete requirements for a course (deter-
  mined by the instructor). When the requirements have been completed, the instructor must record the
  changed grade If the student has not completed the requirements within the extension period, an "F" is
  automatically recorded.

  VOCATIONAL ADULT (aid code 47) GENERAL ADULT (aid code 42) AND AVOCATIONAL
  COURSES (aid code 60)

  Instructors have the option of using an "S" (satisfactory) or "U" (unsatisfactory) grading method or
  the letter grade structure noted on the previous page. The S/U method should be the general practice
  for this noncredit coursework, however an increasing number of employers are requesting that the A,
  B, C, D or F grade be recorded for their employees for purposes of assessing skill levels attained in
  contract training or making tuition reimbursement decisions.

  GRADE POINT AVERAGES

  Grade point averages are pinted on transcripts and grade reports. A separate grade point average is
  designated for each of the following levels of instruction:

  •   Associate Degree
  •   Technical Diploma
  •   Apprentice

  Grade point averages include only the highest grade of a repeated course although all occurrences of a
  course are listed on the transcript.

  Grade point averages do not include IP and W grades.


                                         CHANGE OF GRADE

  If an extension is granted to a student, the instructor must change the grade on-line. The EX grade must
  be removed from the student's record with the earned grade. Don't forget to do this.

                                       STACKED CLASS ROSTERS

  Some instructors teach a stacked class which means that within a period of time more than one course
  section is being offered under that one instructor. If a class is stacked with other classes, the instructor
  will receive a single roster for the entire stack. The class will be listed under the primary class number
  and class title. The roster will be alphabetical by student name, but the individual student class number
  will be listed for each student. A roster for only one specific class section within a stack can be re-
  quested if it is needed. Contact your supervisor if you have questions.

                               ACADEMIC APPEAL PROCEDURE

  Students may appeal any academic grade given by a staff member of FVTC or attendance decision that
  affects that grade. However, before an academic appeal is filed, it is required that the student contact
  the instructor to clarify the grade. In the event that a grading concern cannot be satisfactorily resolved,
  the student should contact the program dean or designee. The following procedure can be followed if
  the student is not satisfied with the decision:

                               INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE USE OF THE
                                 EARLY ACADEMIC ALERT FORM


  Research shows that working with students and their issues in the first few weeks of the semester is
  critical to student retention. The early academic alert form is a tool that can be used by any
  instructor when a student issue presents itself that goes beyond normal expectations in the
  classroom. The assumption in using it is that the instructor has done the usual classroom management
  responsibilities, such as talking with a student about attendance, completion of assignments or tests,
  and classroom behavior. When a problem persists, this process can then be used to contact the
  student’s advisor so that additional intervention may take place.

  Any instructor can fill out the top part of the form on a student who is having difficulty. After
  completing this portion, you fold the form, staple it and send it to Barb Pautz, Academic/Faculty
  Advising Secretary, in E106. Barb will send the form to the student’s advisor, program lead
  instructor or program counselor as designated by the program. That person then meets with the
  student to discuss the identified problem. The bottom portion of the form is then completed and a
  copy of the original returned to the person who made the referral. The advisor may wish to keep a
  copy of the form in the student’s file.

  It is certainly possible to refer a student to an advisor without the use of this form by making direct
  contact with the advisor and discussing the problem. Use of the form makes it a more formal
  process and allows written documentation that the concern has been addressed.

                                   ACADEMIC PROGRESS STANDARDS
It is expected that students will make satisfactory progress each term they are enrolled. Satisfactory
progress is defined as achieving a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 (“C”).


                                   ACADEMIC PROBATION PROCEDURE

If a student fails to achieve a 2.0 GPA (“C”), the following actions will occur:

·     Student will receive written notification acknowledging probationary status.
·     Student is required to set up an appointment with his/her program counselor or advisor to discuss and
      jointly develop an action plan to effectively deal with the issue(s) surrounding the probation.
·     Student is strongly encouraged to reduce his/her credit load to 12 credits for the following term.

If the student fails to achieve satisfactory progress (2.0 GPA) for a second consecutive term, the following
actions will occur:

·     Student will receive a second written notification of probationary status.
·     An academic hold will be placed on the student’s record.
·     Student is required to meet with his/her program counselor to formulate an action plan to improve
      academic performance.
·     Program counselor and student will agree on a prudent academic load (not to exceed 12 credits) for the
      next term.
·     Students on probation prior to changing programs will remain on probation.


Note: Academic holds will remain in force until a student meets with his/her program counselor. After meeting,
      the academic hold will be removed from the student’s record and the student will be able to enroll for
      classes.

                               INDEPENDENT STUDIES COURSES
  Independent studies courses are available to qualified students who are enrolled in FVTC programs.
  The program provides options in the curriculum by allowing students to:
      1. Investigate areas of interest not currently included in any course at FVTC.
      2. Study areas and develop projects which cut across course boundaries.
      3. Delve more deeply into specific parts of existing offerings.
  This option has been developed to enable students to be self-directed learners and to establish and
  maintain individual educational goals. A student who wants more information about independent studies
  courses should contact the Academic counselor.


                                                AUDITING
  A student may audit a course to gain a general understanding of a subject matter, but only with the
  approval from the respective faculty department chair.
  A student must decide whether to audit a course at the time of registration and must also complete the
  Course Audit Request Form. A student wanting to audit a course must pay the same tuition and fees as
  a student enrolled for credit. Any course prerequisites must be met before registering and enrolling in
  the audited course.
  A student does not earn course credit for auditing a course, nor is an achievement grade awarded at
  course end. Audited courses may not be used to satisfy the prerequisites or requirements for other
  courses. Courses taken on an audit basis are not part of the student's credit load for financial aid,
  veteran's benefits or for any other purpose for which the college is asked to certify a student's full- or
  part-time enrollment status.
  A student auditing a course is expected to meet attendance requirements, participate in classroom and
  lab work, and complete all assignments, but is not required to take examinations. At course end, an
  audited course will reflect an "AU" notation on the student's official record and transcript for that
  course. A student may not change his or her course enrollment status at a later date to receive credit for
  an audited course.
  Fox Valley Technical College reserves the right to restrict the auditing of any course. Audit options are
  provided in courses on a space-available basis.


                                      REPEATING A COURSE
  When a student repeats a course, the grade of the most recently completed course will be used in
  calculating the cumulative grade point average (GPA). Regardless of the number of times a course is
  taken, all course grades will appear on the transcript.

test a portion of a course or module and/or enhancement resources for “on the ground” courses using
Blackboard software. Collaboration with others is encouraged and a feedback loop is built in to provide
for interaction among developers before courses and resources “go live.” The seminar may be completed in
a flexible delivery format and is available for one undergraduate or graduate credit from UW-Stout.

*Faculty who have completed similar training may apply that training to the total hours required by this
inservice with approval from the instructor(s).

                                        USING BLACKBOARD

Blackboard is software that FVTC supports for the delivery of blended and fully online courses. It provides
a password-protected online learning environment for discussions, interactions, course materials and non-
secure testing.

If you are assigned to teach a course using Blackboard or would like to use Blackboard to support a
course you are teaching in the classroom or via ITV, let the IDD Blackboard Support Team know! You'll
need training and will have access to continuing support from this team. Please contact Terri Langan, 735-
4740 or Vicki Sahr, 735-4816 for more information.

If you are using Blackboard with your courses, here are some things to remember:

•         Access Blackboard using its "direct address": http://online.fvtc.edu (not through the FVTC
          homepage).
•         Make your course available to students no later than the first official day of class
          (preferably a week earlier).
•         Be sure your students have access information from you at least a week in advance of the
          official start date of your class.
•         Be sure to "close" your class (make it unavailable) at the end of the term.
•         Check the Internet Instructors' Support Site often for updates and "how to" information:
          http://its.fvtc.edu/langan/BB6/blackboard_version_6.htm.

For more information about contacting and communicating with students, managing your courses or using
Blackboard, contact Terri Langan in theInstructional Development and Delivery Division, Room E117,
Appleton Campus (735-4760 or langan@fvtc.edu).

                 ASSESSMENT AT FOX VALLEY TECHNICAL COLLEGE

Fox Valley Technical College has an implementation plan in place for assessment of student academic achieve-
ment. The plan includes direction for efforts involvement training, support, and data collection focused on student
achievement at the program and the classroom level.

Beliefs
Two key beliefs drive the FVTC plan for assessment: (a) assessment needs to be infused as part of the natural
processes of teaching, learning and continuous improvement—integral, not peripheral, to the day-to-day work of
the College; and, (b) assessment practices at the program and classroom levels need to be guided by clear out-
comes and core abilities so that anyone who looks at a program and/or General Education offerings knows clearly
what to expect from the College’s graduates.

Because assessment is integral to the work of the College, assessment activities are encouraged as part of curricu-
lum development and updating and are audited as part of the regular program evaluation cycle (approximately
every 5 years).

If assessment is to be effective, it must provide and be guided by a clear framework. Program outcomes and core
abilities serve this function at both program and classroom levels. Program outcomes have been defined for
FVTC as “the specific and general knowledge, skill, attitudes and abilities demonstrated by the program graduate.
The program outcomes incorporate technical skills and Fox Valley Technical College core ability statements.”
Core abilities have been defined for FVTC as “transferable life skills that are addressed throughout the entire
college experience and which are not course specific.”

The Board of Trustees believes strongly in the need for graduates to demonstrate core abilities as evidenced by
their adoption of the Core Abilities as one of the Ends Policies of the College in November 1998.

The College publishes the program outcomes for each program and has instituted a policy of both including them
in print materials such as the College catalog and in electronic form on the College’s official Web site.

Goal setting and monitoring follows the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle:



            Act: Programs & Gen. Ed use                                Plan: Set reasonable goals

                                       EVALUATION FORM

  Fox Valley Technical College places a high value on students as customers of the educational
  enterprise and their feedback regarding the courses they have enrolled in and related educa-
  tional support services they have experienced. Customer feedback serves as one key compo-
  nent of the continuous improvement process for courses, programs, and related services.

  Some form of student/participant evaluation should be conducted in every course and semi-
  nar offered by the college. A number of forms, tools, and strategies (both formal and infor-
  mal) exist to collect this important feedback.

  It is imperative that students/participants are allowed to remain anonymous when course
  evaluations are begin conducted. Ideally, instructors/presenters should leave the classroom
  when the evaluation is being done with evaluation forms collected and mailed or dropped off
  at a specified office by a designated student/participant.

  Instructors are strongly encouraged to create multiple opportunities for students/partici-
  pants to provide feedback throughout the course to ensure that expectations are being met
  and stated outcomes are being achieved from the student perspective. Student evaluations
  conducted prior to the final class session provide opportunities for making necessary adjust-
  ments and addressing any issues that are identified.

  A brief, computerized evaluation form for Continuing Education courses has been developed
  which you may use for each noncredit course. See sample on page 67. Have students use a
  #2 pencil to complete these forms.

  A computerized scantron participant evaluation form has also been developed specifically
  for contracted instruction. A sample evaluation used for contract training is shown on page
  69. All instructors of contracted instruction will receive evaluation forms with the registra-
  tion materials or they are available through your respective division for distribution at close
  of training. Have students use a #2 pencil to complete these forms and return them as di-
  rected. A statistical summary of the evaluation will be forwarded to the division for appro-
  priate distribution.

  Depending on the course you are teaching, your department may want to use a specific evalu-
  ation form. Please check. Samples are shown on the following pages.

  On-Line Evaluation Forms

  The college is using on-line evaluation forms. Instructions on how to utilize the system and samples of
  the evaluation form and results forms are included in the following pages.

                               LIFELINE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

 The LifeLINE Assistance Program provides counseling help and other assistance to students and staff
 who may be experiencing personal problems. LifeLINE is staffed by FVTC's Alcohol, Tobacco and
 Other Drug Abuse Facilitator, who is on campus Monday through Friday during the day. The LifeLINE
 Program may be accessed at (920) 735-4888.

 Fox Valley Technical College has a responsibility to support and maintain an alcohol and drug-free
 campus. The college also pledges itself to maximize the possibility of academic success for all of its
 students. LifeLINE offers educational resources, campus-wide awareness events on a variety of topics
 and intervention/support services for those who struggle with a substance abuse or other personal
 problem.

 The Prevention Facilitator is available for individual staff consultation regarding curriculum, alcohol and
 other drug prevention ideas and students experiencing personal or academic problems. Confidential
 sessions may be scheduled by calling the above number. If the Prevention Facilitator is unavailable,
 leave a message and a timely reply will follow.

 The LifeLINE program maintains a library of video and printed material on a variety of topics including
 substance abuse, personal growth and emotional health. Pamphlets and booklets may be obtained and
 the books and videos may be checked out at no charge to students and staff.

 Fox Valley Technical College offers its employees an Employee Assistance Program (EAP). The Em-
 ployee Assistance Program is a free benefit offered to you in conjunction with ThedaCare At Work.
 The EAP is available for all full-time, part-time and retired employees, dependents and members of
 your household. This program deals with a wide range of human issues, which if left unattended, often
 result in declining work performance or other serious personal problems. The EAP covers issues related
 to family, relationships, parenting, substance abuse, grief, financial concerns, emotional problems,
 stress, self-improvement, information and referral to community resources. The EAP staff are profes-
 sionally trained counselors there to assist you. Fox Valley Technical College understands that everyone
 faces issues, large and small. During those times, it is nice to have a place to turn for support and
 guidance or just to talk to someone. The idea is to get help early before things become too difficult to
 manage.

 The EAP is FREE, VOLUNTARY and CONFIDENTIAL. Because the EAP is not part of Fox
 Valley Technical College, no one will know you have contacted them or have had sessions with one of
 the counselors unless you give written permission. Employees and family/household members can call
 the EAP’s toll free number, (800) 236-3666, and arrange for a confidential appointment. You don’t
 need to let anyone at Fox Valley Technical College know you are contacting them. The employee does
 not have to attend the session, so family members can go on their own if they choose. The EAP pub-
 lishes a monthly newsletter which is posted on the Health Services Web site at: http://www.fvtc.edu/
 tp2.asp?ID=Health+Services.

                                EYE PROTECTION GUIDELINES


  Eye protection will only be effective to the degree that positive attitudes toward eye safety are devel-
  oped. FVTC recognizes that students, staff and visitors are exposed to situations that could result in
  serious eye injury unless adequate eye protection is required.

  Instructors have responsibility for enforcing eye safety in their classes and shops. All staff members are
  to abide by eye safety guidelines. Noncompliance and/or nonenforcement shall result in disciplinary
  action.

  eyewear must be initiated by the employee through Facilities and Operations staff on the Main Campus.

  Be sure to observe and note the location of the nearest fire extinguisher and fire alarms near your
  classroom in case of fire, as well as fire exits in the building. It is wise to point these out to students as
  well.

  Fire drills are held periodically throughout the year. When an intermittent bell sounds, everyone should
  leave the building using the nearest exit. Once outside, everyone should move away from the building
  and not reenter until directed to return by authorized personnel or the "All Clear" is announced.

  go the nearest designated first floor site which is identified by a green "Designated Shelter Area" sign
  posted near the ceiling.

  Elevators should be used ONLY by individuals with disabilities and those assisting them. During a
  tornado drill, no one is to leave the building unless directed to do so by authorized personnel.

                                        STUDENT SERVICES

  The primary purpose of the Student Services staff is to assist incoming and enrolled students in a variety
  of ways. Their services include: admissions, career planning and counseling, graduation, entrance as-
  sessment, financial assistance, grade transcripts, interest assessment, job placement, registration, stu-
  dent activities, student records, veterans advisement and the Wo/Men's Bureau, and academic counsel-
  ing.

  Assessment Services

  The FVTC Assessment Center provides several services: high school equivalency examinations (GED/
  HSED), ACCUPLACER, challenge examinations and other specialized evaluations.

        ACT
  High school students who plan to take the ACT tests can have their results sent directly to FVTC by
  checking the designated number on the ACT form. If students have already taken the ACT test, they
  should send a copy of their scores to Admissions and notify their program counselor of this fact. The
  results of the ACT test will replace the ACCUPLACER battery of academic tests.

         ACCUPLACER
  The ACCUPLACER evaluation measures a student's academic skill level in the areas of language,
  reading and math. Students also fill out an educational planning summary which provides necessary
  information to help each student in his/her program and course selection.

  All full- and part-time students attending FVTC are requested to complete the ACCUPLACER evalua-
  tion prior to course registration. This student advisement process includes a battery of academic tests
  which are offered at specific times throughout the year. Contact the Orientation Office for an appoint-
  ment, (920) 735-2419.

  For more information on assessment services or to schedule an appointment, call (920) 735-5676 in
  Appleton or (920) 233-9191 in Oshkosh or any FVTC Regional Center.

          GED Exams (GED/HSED)
  There are a variety of ways for an individual to earn his/her GED Certificate or High School Equiva-
  lency Diploma. An orientation session and intake session must be completed prior to GED testing. To
  begin the GED/HSED process, call the Student Services Department at (920) 735-2569. Academic
  preparation is available through FVTC's Goal-Oriented Adult Learning (GOAL) program.

  The FVTC Assessment Center is an official GED/HSED testing center that must meet criteria mandated
  by federal and state regulations. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction will issue GED Certifi-
  cates or High School Equivalency Diplomas to adult residents who have not graduated from high
  school, provided they meet the necessary requirements of the GED/HSED program. GED/HSED testing
  is available at all regional centers. For further information, see FVTC's web page at http://
  www.fvtc.edu.

  Tips from the staff on "What you need to know"

  FVTC supports Microsoft Word. If your PC has Microsoft Works or Corel Word Perfect, you will not
  be able to open the files at FVTC. I fyou contact the SCC staff, they will walk you through the steps to
  save your document in the corect format.

  The 3.5" floppy disk is not a reliable storage medium. The staff advises students to make use of their
  FVTC Network Storage, writable CDs, or jump drives to save assignments.It is always wise to print a
  hard copy. If you have questions on purchasing storage devices, feel free to contact the staff.

                                      VETERANS SERVICES
Students enrolling at FVTC who are planning to collect veterans educational benefits should apply for these
benefits through the FVTC Veterans Office, Room E104, which processes applications for both state and
federal educational benefits.
Students intending to receive veterans benefits should first make certain that they have an acceptance letter
from FVTC for their chosen program. Veterans who are returning to school and/or changing their major or
place of training must meet with the appropriate program counselor to:
Obtain an acceptance into their new program.
Schedule an evaluation of their previous training to see what courss will transfer to their new program. They
must also contact the Veterans Office to fill out the VA's Change of Program form.
When the student registers for each enrollment period, he/she must present a stamped, paid registration
form to the Veterans Office.
All students receiving Federal VA educational benefits must be recertified through FVTC's Veterans Office
for each enrollment period (fall, winter, spring and summer). All veterans who make changes in their class
schedules must notify the Veterans Office prior to making that change.
Veterans receive benefits from the VA for letter grades only. FVTC is required to report nonpunitive
grades (W, IP, AU) to the VA which may require the veteran to reimburse part of his/her benefits to the
VA. The VA will ask for reimbursement only if it determines that the veteran has collected benefits without
completing a portion of the certified training. Similarly, if the veteran withdraws from school, he/she may
receive a grade of W in all courses, which may cause an overpayment of benefits and necessitate a reim-
bursement to the VA. For information on these procedures, contact the FVTC Veterans Office at (920)

  General Operation

  Adjunct Faculty Teaching Agreements (AFTA's) must be signed and returned to the front desk the first
  night of class.

  Travel forms should be submitted to the Clintonville Center on a monthly basis.

  A Grade and Attendance report must be submitted to the Clintonville Center upon completion of the

  Center Manager 715.823.8324 or 1.800.321.7133.

  Class Time

  When you accept the responsibility of teaching for the FVTC District, you are expected to be in your
  classroom at least 15 minutes prior to the starting time. Upon completing a class, the instructor should
  be the last one out of the classroom. Normally, standard classes are two to three periods per session. A
  class period is 50 minutes. This does not necessarily mean a straight 50 minutes and then a 10-minute
  break. How you divide the instructional and break time is up to you, your topic and your students. Labs
  and shop settings may be scheduled differently to meet student needs. Be sure your students are
  getting the instructional time for which they paid.

  Class Breaks

  Students should be reminded to be QUIET when they are on break as other classes are in session.
  Students should use the lounge for breaks, rather than the hallways and front reception area so as not to
  be disruptive of other classes or front desk personnel. Exterior doors will be locked at 8:00 p.m.
  Monday through Thursday evenings. If your students need to go outside for a break, they should plan
  on being back in the building by 8:00 p.m. because after that time the doors will be locked.

  Health and Safety

  Please take note of the fire exits in the building and location of extinguishers (at each exit). Please make
  sure your students are aware at the first class session of the evacuation route and the procedure to be
  followed. (See map posted in the classroom.)

  Food Service

  Vending machines are located in the student lounge.

  Fire Drills

  Fire drills are conducted periodically. When the fire alarm sounds, everyone must leave the building
  through the nearest exit. You will be provided with a map showing the evacuation routes for the build-
  ing. Once outside, everyone should move away from the building and not reenter until directed to return
  by authorized personnel.

Disaster Drills

Disaster drills will be conducted periodically for such disasters as tornadoes, floods, building collapse, etc.
When a "take cover" announcement is made, everyone must report to the designated shelter area in Room
128. During a disaster drill, no one is allowed to leave the building unless directed to do so by authorized
personnel.

Illness or Injury

In case of illness, fainting spells or bodily injuries, take immediate steps to give emergency first aid. The
instructor should take care to ensure that the first aid administered will not in any way jeopardize the condi-
tion of the student who is ill or injured. No injured student should be moved unless the instructor is sure that
the movement will not aggravate the injury. Blood spill kits are located in each classroom in plastic bags on
the wall near the door. The first aid kit is located in the reception area.

If, in the judgment of the instructor, the student is seriously ill or needs immediate medical attention, the
instructor should arrange to telephone an ambulance to transport the individual to the closest hospital.
Instructors should meet emergency situations according to their best judgment. Notify the Center Manager
as soon as possible in case of serious illness or bodily injury. Complete an Incident Report form. If an
instructor receives an injury, he/she must report the incident to the Center so an incident form can be
completed and submitted to Appleton.

  Health and Safety

  In case of illness, fainting spells, or bodily injuries, take immediate steps to give emergency first aid.
  The instructor should take care to insure that the first aid administered will not in any way jeopardize
  the condition of the student who is ill or injured. No injured student should be moved unless the
  instructor is sure that the movement will not aggravate the injury.

  If, in the judgment of the instructor, the student is seriously ill or needs immediate medical attention, the
  instructor should arrange to telephone an ambulance to transport the individual to a local hospital.
  Instructors should meet emergency situations according to their best judgment.

  Notify the main office as soon as possible in case of serious illness or bodily injury. Complete a FVTC
  Incident Reporting Form, available on the FVTC Web site. Forward to Health Services via fax at 920-
  831-4398 or send via inter-office mail.

  If an instructor receives an injury he/she must report the incident to the office so an incident form can be
  completed.

  For classes at Neenah and Menasha Schools—In case of an emergency in the classroom, use a pay
  phone to call 911 number. No coin is required. Know where the nearest pay phone is located. Offices
  are locked in the evening and custodians are not always available.

  Proper safety precautions should be followed at all times. Instruct your students in the proper use of all
  power equipment and in the safe handling of all tools. Should an injury occur, follow the procedures
  outlined below. Be sure to file an Incident Report for an accident involving a physical injury or an
  incident that may have legal implications.

  Please see that your students are informed of the school regulations, fire drill procedures, etc., listed.
  We would also appreciate it if you would distribute the “Emergency Use” forms to the students.

  For future reference, fire drill procedures, school regulations, etc., are posted in each classroom.


  Home Emergencies

  The “Emergency Use” form includes information such as: name of the class you are attending, the
  building you are in, e.g., Horace Mann, Classroom number, Instructor, FVTC-Neenah office telephone
  number (720-6800).

  Please distribute the “Emergency Use” form to the students so they may post them on their home mes-
  sage centers. Please note that the office phone is not answered after 9:00 p.m. It will be much easier for
  office personnel to locate a student in case of an emergency if the caller is able to furnish the above
  information.

Instructor Resource Guide                           Revised August 2005
  For classes at Neenah and Menasha Schools—In case of an extreme emergency at home, the
  fastest way to reach an individual in class would be to send someone from home to the school or call
  the police and request that they contact the student. Since all offices are locked in the evening, it is
  impossible to locate the student by telephone. If the FVTC-Neenah office is called, we would have to
  notify the police since we have no way of reaching the student by telephone.


  School Regulations

  Smoking is not permitted in any of the buildings or on school grounds.

  Instructor Hours

  The Regional Center staff will make arrangements with the instructor to have the building and rooms
  open for classes and closed upon completion, depending on where the class is being held. Classes are
  held at the Regional Center or a community location.

  School Regulations

  Instructors are requested to read the following statements to the students at the beginning of the first
  class: ”Smoking is banned inside the building and will ONLY be allowed at the back entrances. For
  classes held at area grade and high school buildings, smoking is banned in the building and on the
  premises.”

  ”Due to liability concerns, please do not bring your small children to class with you. We do not have
  child care facilities and they cannot be unattended or in the classroom with you.

  Class Cancellation

  In cases of severe or inclement weather, classes will be canceled by the District or the Regional man-
  ager. Instructors and students will be notified by the Regional Center staff. Announcements will also be
  aired by the Green Bay television stations and/or WDUX, WPKR and WISS radio stations. Students
  are given handouts on cancellation procedures due to inclement weather when they enroll.

  If the instructor must cancel a class due to an emergency, illness or other unexpected reason, the in-
  structor must notify the Regional Center staff. The Regional Center staff will attempt to notify class
  members by telephone, place a sign on the classroom door or go to the class site.

  If an instructor cancels a class for any other reason, he/she must inform the class members and the
  Regional Center staff in advance. If arrangements are made for a substitute teacher, the instructor is
  responsible to have lesson plans and other instructional material available for the substitute.

Instructor Resource Guide                          Revised August 2005
  Any classes that are canceled must be made up and the Regional Center staff must be notified of the
  make-up date. Make-up classes should be discussed with class members and arranged as soon as
  possible either by extending class hours or extending the end date of the class.


  Registration Procedures

  Students must register in advance and pay tuition prior to the first night of class. The instructor has the
  responsibility to handle late enrollments. Instructors will be provided with registration forms. The origi-
  nal and yellow copies of the registration form, along with the course fee, must be turned into the
  Regional Center staff the next day.


  Class Rosters

  Each instructor will be provided with a tentative class roster at the beginning of the first class. After all
  registrations are processed, a computer printed roster of the actual class members will be given to the
  instructor.

  At the end of the course, instructors will indicate the number of hours each student attended and a
  grade. A letter grade should be given for any credit courses; while a S (Satisfactory) or U (Unsatisfac-
  tory) grade is given for all other courses. Sign the roster and turn it in to the Regional Center staff no
  later than one week after the course has ended.


  Course Outlines

  Each instructor is expected to provide the Regional Center staff with a course outline for each course s/
  he is teaching. Course outline forms are available at the Regional Center. If films, texts, or other sup-
  plies or equipment are required for the class, it must be noted on the course outline. This enables
  Regional Center staff to order, secure, or notify students of these items, and potential additional costs,
  in advance. All course outlines are retained at the Regional Center. Copies can be made, upon request,
  for the instructor.


  Equipment and Supplies

  Films, videotapes, special equipment (i.e., video player, overhead projector, etc.) or books which must
  be ordered require advance notice of at least three weeks (six to eight weeks preferred for books).
  Contact the Regional Center staff for details concerning procedures for securing these items.

Instructor Resource Guide                            Revised August 2005
  If an instructor has materials that s/he would like copies to use as handouts for class members, bring the
  materials to the Regional Center at least one week prior to the class start date. Materials may then be
  picked up the afternoon of the class start date. If special supplies are required (e.g. sewing course),
  instructors are urged to list such supplies on the course outline and give some suggestions where they
  may be purchased. Students registering in advance will be informed of these needs or be provided with
  a list. Shared food costs are included in course fee of all foods classes.

  Resales

  The Center staff will secure the usual required textbooks and supplies and collect the fees in advance
  when possible. Such book and supply sales are subject to 5.5 percent sales tax.

  Health Emergencies

  Carefully follow the procedures outlined below concerning health emergencies:

  In case of illness, fainting spells, or bodily injuries, the instructor should take immediate steps to give
  emergency first aid. The instructor should take care to ensure that the first aid administered will not in
  any way jeopardize the condition of the student who is ill or injured. No injured student should be
  moved unless the instructor is certain that the movement will not aggravate the injury.

  If, in the judgment of the instructor, the student is seriously ill or needs immediate medical attention, the
  instructor should arrange to telephone Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Instructors should meet
  emergency situations according to their best judgment making necessary arrangements and reporting the
  incidents to the Regional Center staff as soon as possible. It shall be understood by instructors, em-
  ployees, and students that the District cannot legally assume any financial responsibilities for the pay-
  ment of ambulance services or medical services; FVTC does not carry insurance for students.

  An incident report must be filed for all injuries or accidents and for any serious illness. Incident report
  forms may be obtained from the Regional Center staff.

  All instructors are encouraged, though not required, to have current First Aid and CPR certification.
  Those who are not certified but wish to be should contact the Regional Center staff for details.


  Janitorial Service

  It is the responsibility of the instructor to make sure classrooms are left clean and orderly at the end of
  each class. Tables and chairs should be put back the way they were found.

  Under no circumstances are tools or equipment to be taken out of the high school or Regional Center
  shops, laboratories or classrooms. Students will be allowed to work in the shops and laboratories only
  during scheduled class hours.

  Instructors should not allow students to work in shops or laboratories unsupervised at any time. If the
  instructor needs to leave the class area, students should not work during the instructor’s absence.

  Smoking in and about the shops is NOT allowed at any time.
