Course Details
Homework and tests: All homework assignments are to
be completed. Note:
Homework assignments are an important part of the class and completion of those
will
help determine your final grade. Tests and quizzes may be made up if you are
absent.
However, it is your responsibility to arrange the time to take those tests.
Attendance Policy: Absence from four classes is
allowed but it’s important to be in
class each day. After four missed classes a student may be dropped from the
class by
the instructor. You are responsible for all information and work missed during
any
absence. Some assignments might be eligible for make up. You penalize yourself
by
missing important information. Be in class on time! Tardy class minutes can add
up to
absences. This is a fastpaced class. Missing class may affect your grade.
Grading Policy: Tests – 70% of your total grade.
Homework – 20% of your total
grade. Pop quizzes and inclass participation – 10% of your total grade. (Late
homework will be accepted; however, it will be worth only half of the original
points.
Additionally, it may not be more than 1 class period late.) Test point value is
determined by the number of problems on each test. Grading scale will be 90% 
A;
80%  B; 70%  C; 60%  D; below 60%  F
Academic Behavior: Most classrooms, especially
computer classrooms, have a no
eating and drinking policy, however we may sometimes allow minimal food
in this
classroom as long as things are kept neat and tidy. Please turn any cellphones
to
vibrate and if you must take a call, excuse yourself quietly from the room and
finish
your call quickly so you don’t miss something in class. The instructor reserves
the
right to remove , or ask security to remove, anyone who creates a distraction in
class.
There should also be a minimum of talking with your neighbor unless we are doing
a
group assignment . If you didn’t hear something the instructor said or don’t
understand something, please raise your hand to ask for clarification because in
some
cases your classmate may not have the correct information.
Students with Disabilities: Students with
disabilities who believe they may need
accommodations in this class are encouraged to contact Disabled Student Programs
&
Services (661 7258020 ), Delano Campus (ROOM??) , as soon as possible to
better ensure such accommodations are implemented in a timely fashion. For
example, if extra time is needed on tests, you must arrange that before the
second
class meeting and then show the instructor what accommodation you have been
granted. The instructor does not need to know what the disability is, only what
the
accommodation is.
Drop (Withdrawal)/Add Deadlines: Students are
responsible for completing these
processes. Pay close attention to these dates. YOU must complete college
admissions
and records processes. Merely not coming to class is not the same as officially
dropping a class. The instructor “may” drop you but otherwise you will get a
failing
grade. YOU must do the paperwork (or online work) to make it official.
Extra Credit in the Plato Computer Lab: For each
1/2 hour in the Plato Lab
working on ACDV B78 curriculum you will receive one extra credit point for that
week.
You can earn up to two extra credit points per week (1 hour using the lab).
There are
no official Plato Lab hours in Delano, but hopefully we will be able to schedule
some in
DST 119 (your classroom). These times will be announced later in the semester.
You
can also use the Plato Lab (Student Success Lab) at the main BC campus.
