II. COURSE POLICIES
A. Attendance/Tardiness Policy – As this is an online class attendance works in the form of a
work week. Each week has a module with material and assignments that must be
completed. Every day anything is late it is a 20% deduction. Make sure you complete
everything within our work week to ensure the highest grade possible.
B. Class Participation – You must be active in the online classroom. This means post
discussions on time, ask questions on the discussion board, and be an active learner.
Failure to be a class participant in on discussions boards and group activities equates to
losing 2% of the overall grade for each offense.
C. Extra Credit – Will be provided by the instructor and only under extenuating circumstances.
D. Tutoring or extra help sessions – Are readily available to struggling students. A struggling
student is defined as: A student who has turned all work in on time or ahead of time, made
contact about needing help on multiple occasions, and has been an active participant in
the learning process.
E. Acceptable Style/Format of Assignment – All assignments for this class are downloadable
documents. Keep the document in the format that it is downloaded in. Write your answers
below the questions on the assignment. When you upload the assignment it should be
saved as the title of the assignment and your last name. EXAMPLE: The assignment is
Nutrition_LASTNAME when you download it. When you turn it in it should be
Nutrition_YOURLASTNAME. With that said if I turned it in it would be Nutrition_REAMS.
Anything that does not follow this format will automatically lose 50% on the assignment.
F. Assignment Deadlines – Are due at the times designated in the course schedule.
Blackboard time-stamps your submissions and will mark assignments submitted after the
designated due date/time as LATE. For everyday an assignment is late a twenty (20)
percent reduction of the overall grade will occur.
G. Plagiarism and Cheating – Plagiarism is attempting to pass off someone else’s work as
your own. Please refer to Allegany College of Maryland Student Handbook for the
definitions of both plagiarism and cheating; neither will be tolerated. It is not acceptable for
one student to copy from another student’s paper or test, or for two or more students to
turn in identical homework assignments. Plagiarism and/or cheating will result in a failing
grade on the assignment(s) in question. A second instance of plagiarism and/or cheating
may result in a failing grade for the course. Please ask me if you are uncertain about the
use of a source.
H. Exams – There are multiple exams in this class. These exams are one (1) take exams
where no re-examination will occur.
I. Email – To avoid problems with your emails to me ending up in my junk-mail folder, use of
your ACM email account. It is required for all email communication related to this class.
During the week you can expect responses from me fairly quickly as I check my email
regularly. Over the weekend expect longer a longer wait time for a response. I do check my
email every day though so don’t be afraid to email me.
