    1. Classroom basics
           Attendance: I do not take role. Keep in mind that Students that attend on a
              regular basis and stay on top of work will perform better than those that do not.
           Class Arrival/departure: If you can not arrive to class on time, or if you need
              to leave early, you have an obligation to minimize classroom disruption. Please
              enter and depart class from entrance at the back of the room, and sit in the back of
              the room. This will minimize disruption of the class.
           Cell Phones: Turn them off. If you cell phone rings during class, you will be
              asked to leave. I realize that at times there may be a legitimate reason for needing
              your phone to be on during class time. In such cases, Please let me know prior to

    2.        Resources Available

4.   Assignments
     a.   Database and modeling assignments will be assigned during the term. ON several assignments,
          the student will be required to use the database files posted on the class web site. These files must
          be downloaded before opening the file and attempting the assignment. If you open the file while it
          is on the server, all your work will be lost when you exit the program.
     b.   Most assignments will be submitted electronically
                 i. I will use the ETSU electronic drop box for all electronic assignment submissions (email
                    attachment as last resort).
                ii. Instructions for each assignment will contain submission requirements.
               iii. All assignments will have a submission deadline(date and time)
               iv. Failure to follow submission requirements and/or missing submission deadline will result
                    in a grade of 0
                v. Sending the wrong file will result in a grade of 0
               vi. Assignments that arrive late due to mistakes in send to email address will result in grade
                    of 0
     c.   These assignments are not group projects. Students should work independently.
                 i. Copying/plagiarism will result in a grade of 0 for all parties involved.
     d.   Make sure file is Virus free. Any file received with a virus will receive a grade of 0.
     e.   File attachment size may be a problem if you use a free email service such as Yahoo or Hotmail.
          (1 to 1.5 mb limit) and have to send solution in as an email attachement.
                 i. Solution is to create a zip file which should compress you database file to an acceptable
                    size for the free email programs.
                ii. Windows XP and Vista have a basic file compression program that you can use to create
                    zip file. If you do not know how to use it, let me know.
     f.   Solutions that require hard copy to be turned in are due at beginning of class.
     g.   Late assignments will not be accepted

5.   Cases: Several cases requiring a write-up may be given during the semester. These cases will be
     graded on both the quality of the analysis and the quality of the write-up.
               i. Case write-ups must be typed.
              ii. Hand written write-ups will not be accepted and will receive grade of 0
6.   There will be NO individual make-up exam. In the event of an excused absence from an exam, the
     grade achieved on the comprehensive final will be substituted. Unexcused absences will receive an
     exam grade of zero.

     accordance with Departmental, College, and University Regulations.
