Modes of Evaluation

One Concept Test (closed book)
Group Presentation
25% (2 X 12.5%)
Quizzes 10% (2 x 5%)
Midterm Exam 30%
Final Exam 35%

Dates for evaluations are specified in the weekly schedule addendum to this outline. The evaluation process may include, but is not limited to, tests, exams, assignments or presentations. Any absences or missed submissions due to medical or other reasons must be supported by medical or other appropriate documentation within one (1) week of the due date. Failure to produce documentation within the timeframe will result in a grade of zero in the missed evaluation. The faculty and program area must be notified immediately in the event of a missed evaluation. Upon acceptance of the documentation, the weighting of the missed deliverable will normally be applied to the final exam.

Students must attain a minimum overall mark of 60% in order to pass this subject.  Failure to meet the above will result in a grade of "F".

Expected English Competencies:

Since this is a professional credit subject, marking standards reinforce professional practice by demanding that all written work must demonstrate the following characteristics for clarity and conciseness:
  •     writing is consistent with the rules of English grammar
  •     spelling and punctuation are correct
  •     appropriate vocabulary used
  •     sentences are structured correctly
  •     work to flow logically through supporting statements
  •     work to be arranged in correct format (i.e. reports, essays)
Safe Assign:

Students are required to submit assignments through Safe Assign. Safe Assign compares submitted assignments against existing sources to identify areas of overlap. You can only submit your assignment once through Safe Assign. Students may also be required to submit a hard copy of the assignment. The process of submitting assignments will be discussed in class.


Late Assignments:

Assignments are due at the beginning of the class on the dates specified. Begin your assignments early in anticipation of unforeseen problems that may arise in your work or personal life. Should extenuating circumstances arise, please contact your instructor immediately, prior to when your assignment is due, so an appropriate course of action can be established. Late assignments are subject to a penalty of 10% per week and will not be accepted beyond two weeks after the assignments due date.
