administrative announcement
Administrative Announcement

Please remember that it is a UM policy thatno food or drink be brought into the classrooms.

Signs are posted in all classrooms to this effect. Please ask your students to observe this policy.

This is particularly important now because the custodial staff is severely short-handed and it is taking them more time than usual to clean the classrooms due to the high level of debris that is left behind.

  • Division of labor
    • Instructor
      • Provides the instruction
      • Prepares for classes
      • Fairly assesses knowledge retention.
    • Student
      • Learns the material
      • Prepares for classes
      • Does not violate the SOBA Academic Integrity Standards
  • Students are absolutely responsible for your attendance and being to class on time--especially on dates when examinations or other course requirements are scheduled.
  • Students arriving late for class after roll is taken will be counted as absent.
  • No student arriving after examinations have been distributed will be permitted to take the examination.
  • Each unexcused absence (to include arriving late or leaving early) will result in 5 points being taken from the 20 possible points allotted for participation.
  • Your future employers expect you to come to work each day and on time, and so does your current instructor.
  • There will be three (3) examinations and a comprehensive final which will cover the text, readings, lecture, and class discussion.
  • All are multiple choice examinations.
  • You will bring a green scantron and a number two pencil.
  • All books, notes and cell phones must be secured during testing.
  • Once in the classroom, you are not permitted to leave until you’ve completed the exam.
make ups
Make Ups
  • All make up examinations (for approved excused absences) will be scheduled during the Final Examination (December 9 at 4:00 p.m.) Again, there are no make ups for unexcused absences.
extra and partial credit
Extra and Partial Credit
  • Extra Credit: There are no provisions for extra credit in this course.
  • Please do not come to the instructor and ask what can be done to get a passing grade, by then it is too late.
  • Appeals: Two criteria are used in considering appeals: (1) The explanation/argument must be logical and consistent, and (2) accurate knowledge of course material must be demonstrated. All appeals are due no later than the class period following the return of the examination in question.
  • No appeals will be accepted after the beginning of that class period. Appeals are graded individually, only those students whose appeals are accepted will receive credit for missed answers.
children in the classroom
Children in the Classroom
  • Children in the Classroom: In recent years there has arisen the problem of parents bringing their children to lectures, and even to examinations. This has resulted in distractions to other students and ensuing complaints.
academic dishonesty
Academic Dishonesty
  • Academic Dishonesty and Cheating: Academic dishonesty refers to the use of unauthorized books, notes, or otherwise securing help on a test, copying tests, assignments, reports, or term papers. Any student caught engaging in any form of academic dishonesty will receive a failing grade for the semester in this course‑‑NO EXCEPTIONS!
