To fully participate, it is essential that the assigned material be read prior to each day’s class. Grading: Grades will be determined by your performance in two major areas: • Mid-term and Final exam (multiple-choice plus essay, 100 points for each exam) • Four Mini-Case Quizzes (25 points for each quiz) There is a maximum of 300 points available in the course. Letter grades will be assigned using both a criterion-referenced and a comparison-referenced approach. Students who earn at least 90% of total points are guaranteed a letter grade no lower than A-. Similarly, students who earn at least 80% of total points are guaranteed a letter grade no lower than B-, and so forth. This is a criterion- referenced approach. However, final course letter grades also will take into consideration relative standing. At the discretion of the instructor, an individual student’s grade could be adjusted upward, but not downward. For example, if one student earns 79.8% of total points and the next highest student total is 78.3%, the instructor may assign a letter grade of B- to the student with 79.8% of total points and assign a C+ to the student with 78.3% of total points. This is a comparison- referenced approach. There will be a mid-term and a final exam. Each exam will consist of 50 multiple-choice questions and 3-4 essay questions from class material. A study guide of multiple-choice questions will be provided and roughly 40 of the 50 multiple choice questions on each exam will come directly from the study guide. The other multiple-choice questions will come from in-class material. A study guide for the essay questions also will be provided. The mid-term exam is on Tuesday, May 5. The final exam is on Tuesday, June 9, starting at 1.00 PM. There will be four quizzes, one for each of four Mini-Cases assigned for in-class discussion. The quiz dates are April 9, April 30, May 12 and May 28. These will consist of true/false and short essay questions on information presented in the mini case and relevant material from the associated textbook chapter. All quizzes will be given at the start of class. Each quiz is worth 25 points. Students who miss an exam or quiz without receiving prior permission from the instructor will be assigned 0 points for that exam or quiz. No make-ups will be given. At the discretion of the instructor, students who arrive to class after a quiz or exam has been distributed may be denied the opportunity to complete the quiz or exam and would be assigned 0 points.
