Assignments and Grading: Passing Course Grade = 80% (accumulative grading)
Calculating your final grade is very straightforward. Your final grade is weighted. This basically means that all activities in the course contribute a percentage to your final grade as outline below. They fall into the following categories:
The following is a detailed outline of weighted final grade scoring system:
No Late Assignments: Because of the amount of writing you will be doing in this course, we will not accept late assignments, except due to extenuating circumstances, which you must tell us about before the assignment is due.
Academic Integrity Statement: A violation of academic integrity is any instance when a student attempts to pass off someone else’s words or ideas as their own, no matter where s/he obtained those words or ideas, and no matter where these ideas are presented. We practice using quotation and citation in this course so you can benefit from others’ ideas, while attributing them appropriately. There is nothing wrong with representing someone else’s ideas in your work; you just have to give them credit. Additionally, there is nothing wrong with getting help on an assignment, but the final product must be predominantly the result of your own work. All academic integrity violations in the course will result in an F on the assignment, and/or, a failing grade in the course, and/or referral to the college’s Academic Integrity officer. Our college gives four definitions of types of academic integrity violation:

At the college, we have adopted the APA Writing Style for the course. President Normore and all other instructors will be enforcing these APA policy guidelines throughout the program, and that these guidelines are particularly significant when analyzing discussion forums, essays and final research paper.
The publication manual of the American Psychological Association (APA) is the style manual of choice for the College.
APA spotlights the ideas being presented, not the manner of presentation. Manuscript structure, word choice, punctuation, graphics, and references are all chosen to move the idea forward with a minimum of distraction and a maximum of precision. To achieve this clarity of communication, publishers have developed rules of style. These rules are designed to ensure clear and consistent presentation of written material. Editorial style concerns uniform use of such elements as punctuation and abbreviations,construction of tables, selection of headings, citation of references, and presentation of statistics.
When editors or teachers ask you to write in APA Style®, they are referring to the editorial style that many of the social and behavioral sciences have adopted to present written material in the field. APA Style was first developed in 1929 by a group of social scientists who wished to establish sound standards of communication. Since that time, it has been adopted by leaders in many fields and has been used by writers around the world.
