USE ALL UPPERCASE -- THIS IS THE EQUIVALENT OF SHOUTING!!!
If I feel that a student is violating any of the above guidelines, I will contact that student to discuss the situation in person or via telephone. If you feel that a student is behaving inappropriately, please send me a private e-mail message explaining the situation as soon as possible.
Most netiquette is simple common sense. If you are engaging electronic environments as a member of this class, then you are subject to the same expectations and rules of conduct any teacher or administrator might expect of you in a face-to-face (f2f) environment. Additionally, whether or not you are entering an electronic environment as a member of the class, if you are doing so via a Canvas or Atlas account, you are legally responsible to the Valencia's policies and expectations.
Please see http://valenciacollege.edu/oit/learning-technology-services/student-resources/academic-integrity/netiquette.cfm for details on rules of netiquette.

EVALUATION AND GRADING
Course Requirements and Grading
Your final grade is determined by the percentage of the 400 total points that you earn as follow:
Two test (2) tests and a Final Research Project (300 points): Each test will have 50 multiple-choice questions worth 100 points.
The Final examination is going to be a multiple-choice test (80 points) with two experiences (20 points-10 each). If you have done more than two experiences, feel free to submit those and those will count as bonus points. You will be able to choose the two experiences from the list of 20. If you are done with your final project, you will be exempt from the final multiple-choice test.
Oral Presentation (50 points): As we are not going to meet face to face, students that have their presentation during the next couple weeks, will need to submit a power point presentation of their topic. The professor will share their presentation with other students.
Research (50 points): The student will research two articles from a scientific journal and explain the research and their own point of view of the assigned topic. The rubric and more information about the specific details and requirements of this project is available on Canvas.
The following Grading Scale will be used in this course:
