Course Learning Objectives:
Course Learning Outcomes:
|Quizzes & Assessment||40%|
Quizzes will be given during class periods as topics and computer tools are
covered, with the exception of Adobe Premier where you will by assessed by the
instructor as you work on your projects. The grade for a quiz will be weighted
by the length of time spent on that topic during class. Any quiz which is missed
(only for excused absences) must be made up.
There is no final exam in the course -- the project is a substitute. Your team will be expected to give a 10-15 minute oral presentation of your project at the end of the semester and to submit a final written report.
Attendance is required and will be taken at the beginning of each class period. Any student with two or more non-excused absences will have their final grade for the semester reduced by one half letter. I expect you to let me know ahead of time if you will miss a particular class session, especially if it is a scheduled quiz, so we can establish a plan for making up graded work. Attendance also means coming to class prepared to participate and contribute. I reserve the right to give "pop quizzes" at any point and/or reduce any or all student(s)' grades for failure to live up to expectations. Please turn off your cell phone (if you have one) -- no exceptions!
The University's Student Code of Conduct is in effect for this course, to include reporting of violations to the Academic Integrity Committee.
A schedule of topics, readings, and assignments will be posted on the course calendar (available by clicking here). Readings and assignments are to be done prior to the class period when it is due. Class time will primarily consist of lecture, although discussion is highly encourages. In addition, there are specific sessions for "hands-on" computer skills development. During computer lab periods, you will use no other computer applications. Failure to follow these guidelines will result in a reduction in points from your final grade.
|Outstanding||A||92-100 total points|
|Superior||B+||86-91.99 total points|
|Excellent||B||80-85.99 total points|
