Final test

Initial DQ response due by Wednesday at 11:59 p.m., EST of pertaining week. Peer Replies due by Sunday at 11:59 p.m., EST.

All paper submitted must be in APA format according to the Publication Manual American Psychological Association (APA) (6th ed.).

2009 ISBN: 978-1-4338-0561-5

This course will use a variety of learning experiences to attain the course objectives, including but not limited to lecture, online discussion, case study, assessment strategies, group and or individual exercises, team and individual presentation, and learning games.

Discussions:

Discussion Question (DQ) Participation Guidelines

Students must Post a minimum of three times in each graded discussion. The three Posts in each individual discussion must be on separate days, the initial answer and two responses to peers. The student must provide an initial answer to the graded discussion Posted by the course instructor, by Wednesday, 11:59 p.m. EST, of each week. If the student does not provide an answer to each graded discussion topic (not a response to a student peer) before the Wednesday deadline, an automatic “0” will be issued for that week’s DQ. Subsequent Posts, including essential responses to peers, must occur by the Sunday deadline, 11:59 p.m. EST of each week.

*Credit for peer responses will be issued via the DQ rubric if peer responses are made without an initial DQ response

NOTE: To receive credit for a week’s discussion, students may begin Posting no earlier than the Sunday at 12:01 a.m. EST. Unless otherwise specified, access to most weeks begins on Sunday at 12:01 a.m. EST.

Postings are graded together with the assignment and/or activity for that week. The total of the assignment or every discussion question is 10 points (7 points for the assignment and 2 points for the replies and 1 point for Turnitin (verification of originality). Your discussion questions assignment must include at least 700 words (excepts special assignments and not counting the first and references pages) with a minimum of 2 evidence-based references, excluding the class textbook and a non-reliable website such as Wikipedia.

All assignments will be graded using a rubric. Grammar is a vital part of the grading criteria for every assignment. As a BSN student close to graduation it is imperative that you present your assignments in an acceptable college level.

Students must submit their initial, weekly DQ Post in two separate areas. First, the student will submit their initial response via that week’s assignment link provided under the assignments tab as a Microsoft Word document. Once this is done, the student will then copy and paste their answer onto that week’s DQ thread under the Discussions tab. Thereafter, all discussions and peer replies will be conducted via the DQ board. Failure to submit your initial DQ response to BOTH the assignments tab and the DQ thread will result in a “0” for that week’s DQ.

Note: All DQ submissions will be Sunitored for plagiarism.

I recommend you download the following app on your computer;

www.grammarly.com

Grammarly is free and “makes sure everything you type is easy to read, effective, and mistake free”. Grammar/spelling will be part of the grading system.

Students are also required to know the expectations or “etiquette” that pertains to the discussion board. Students who abuse this forum by making harassing, inappropriate or abusive statements will be removed and receive a zero (0). Remember, your participation is essential to connecting with other students and developing an online learning community. Further, often it is the deciding factor between receiving a higher or lower grade at the end of the term.

Assignments: Specific assignments and their due dates are listed in this syllabus. Grading criteria are decided by the class instructor. You are accountable for both individual assignments and for providing a significant contribution to your learning team’s collaborative assignments. Your course grade includes scores from both your individual and group assignments. You are also responsible for completing all assignments including readings, written papers, presentations, and class discussions. You will be graded on the achievement of the objectives, not on the effort you put into your assignments. All online discussions, written assignments and documentation of others’ ideas and words in presentations must be in APA 6th edition format with at least 2 evidence-based practice references no older than 5 years. Textbook and websites can be used but will not be counted as a reference for grading purposes. The assignments must be presented in an Arial 12 font.

You have one opportunity to complete each assignment. Papers cannot be rewritten, and presentations cannot be re-given to obtain a higher grade.

Late Assignments: Due dates are established for reasons of equity. It is not fair to peers who complete assignments on time if other classmates have extra time to work on their assignments. It is also not fair to the professor who must grade assignments in a timely fashion. Therefore, 5% of the assignment points (i.e., 1 out of 20, 1.25 out of 25, 2 out of 40) will be deducted each day for late submissions.

Class Policies: All students are responsible for reviewing the School Catalog
