Unique Course Features
Grading Scale Notation
Please consult the University Catalog and your academic advisor to determine the final grade
needed in this class to satisfy your specific degree conferral requirements.
Weekly Course Schedule
The purpose of the course schedule is to give you, at a glance, the required preparation, activities,
and evaluation components of your course. For more information about your course, whether onground or online, access your online course shell.
The expectations for a 4.5 credit hour course are for students to spend 13.5 hours in weekly work.
This time estimate includes preparation, activities, and evaluation regardless of the delivery mode.
Discussions
To earn full credit in an online threaded discussion, students must have one original post and a
minimum of one other post per discussion thread.
Please note: Material in the online class will be made available on the previous Thursday. As it is
always possible that students could lose their work due to unforeseen circumstances, it is a best
practice to routinely save a working draft in a separate file before posting in the course discussion
area.

Assignments
Professors hold discussions during class time for on-ground students. Check with your professor if
any additional discussion participation is required in the online course shell outside of class hours.
Assignments
A standardized performance grading rubric is a tool your professor will use to evaluate your written
assignments. Review the rubric before submitting assignments that have grading rubrics
associated with them to ensure you have met the performance criteria stated on the rubric.
Grades are based on individual effort. There is no group grading; however, working in groups in
the online or on-ground classroom is acceptable.
Assignments for online students are always submitted through the online course shell. On-ground
professors will inform students on how to submit assignments, whether in paper format or through
