For each lecture, there is a prefecture web quiz which is due on the day of the lecture and a post-lecture web quiz with a due date after the lecture that can be found under the Class Schedule link as well. Each pre-lecture web quiz contains mostly simple and straightforward questions designed to ensure that you have picked up the major points from the assigned reading so that you can better participate in the in-class discussions. The post-lecture web quiz contains the more challenging questions that require you to digest the material you should have learned from each lecture.
Detailed rules for the re and post-lecture web quizzes are at the Quiz Instructions link on the home page. You may take these quizzes ten times to improve your grade. Your highest grade on a quiz is the only grade recorded. We drop the lowest of your Pre-lecture, Post-lecture and Lab quizzes. Pre-lecture, post-lecture and lab quizzes are given in a time frame near the delivery of the related course material. After the deadline for a quiz, you will not be able to take it resulting in a grade of zero. See your instructor’s Class icon for the details of the scheduling of these quizzes.
You may take the quizzes five times to try to improve your grade. You will receive the highest of the grades you score on a quiz. For the Learning Styles and Pre-Assessment Survey, you will receive 100% for taking these surveys, but that credit will not appear under My Grades on the day you take them. On the Post-Assessment Survey, you will earn 0. 25 points for each correct answer to a maximum of five points that will be added to your rounded final exam score as extra credit. Abs and Lab Web Quizzes Ten labs are held at the LAB Rooms.
The lab sessions serve the purpose of familiarizing students with various Excel commands needed to complete the arioso lab quizzes. There will be a lab web quiz for each lab session mainly to test the materials presented during the lab. The due dates of the lab web quizzes are under your instructor’s Class Schedule link. You can use the PC’s in the FCC student lounge room 203 when you are not in your assigned lab. You may also use the Learning Resource Center (building #61) during the week and on the weekends. Check their door for open hours. You may take these quizzes ten times to improve your grade.
Your highest grade on a quiz is the only grade recorded. We drop your lowest of your Pre-lecture, Post-lecture ND Lab quizzes. Lecture Exams and Final Exam Both the lecture exams and final exam will be in multiple-choice and fill-in- the-blank format. These exams include material similar to that found in the Post-lecture and Lab quizzes along with the individual Lecture Review Exams (optional). Many of the questions include the use of Pastas and Excel including calculations that you copy and paste into answer blanks. The exams are open Speedster and textbook. All exams are in the Lab Rooms. The final exam is comprehensive.
The dates of the lecture exams and final exam are under your instructor’s Class Schedule link. There is one Lecture Exam per lecture. They are available only during lab under exam environment. You may attempt a Lecture Exam one time only. These exams take the place of midterm exams. We record a zero when the exam deadline passes without a record that you have taken it (See Class Schedule for beginning dates and deadlines). You have until the date of the next exam to supply us with a legitimate documented excuse to have the grade changed to “dropped” (not used to calculate the exam average grade).
You will not be able to see your exam nor your raw score when you have completed the exam. You view your exam results during the next scheduled lab. After the grades are rounded, we post your grade to B Learn (see Rounding of Grades above). We drop your lowest lecture exam grade at the end of the semester. Prior to a Lecture Exam, we release Review Exam that contains questions similar to those found in the Lecture Exams. They are under the Assessments folder in B Learn. The Review Exams are for feedback only without the recording of grades.
You may take them an unlimited number of times to review the lecture material. Use these exams to study for the Lecture Exams and the Final Exam. Projects The team project constitutes a crucial component in this course. This project not only attempts to expose you to the use of statistics in real life situations, it also serves the purpose of training you in the presentation of results. Therefore, your grade will depend on your ability to present results in a way that will be appropriate in a business setting. We require you to translate statistical jargon into everyday language in this process.
A project score consists of three components. Ten % comes from the project web quiz, 20% from self-peer evaluation and 70% from the report. For students with a self- peer evaluation score below 80%, the report score is then multiplied by the score on the self-peer evaluation. Please refer to “Getting Started” found under the Projects icon on the homepage of the class web site. Anybody who does not complete the Self-Peer Evaluation form online gives a strong indication that he/she does not care about the project or the evaluation process.
Hence, that person loses the opportunity to help their own grade and to evaluate the contribution of the other members of the team. Please refer to “Self-Peer Evaluation” found under the Project folder on the amoebae of the class web site. Every team needs to make an appointment with the Business Communication Center (BCC) to have their first draft checked and corrections made prior to submission. At least 50% of the team members must be present at the meeting. The first draft must be reviewed by BCC. It is optional for any team to have the final draft reviewed by BCC prior to submission.
This could serve to improve the team’s final grade. Any first draft that has not been read/approved by the BCC will not be graded and, hence, no comment will be provided. To sign up for an appointment tit the BCC, look for the link under the Class Schedule on B Learn. For more information regarding the BCC, go to www. Franken. Ana. Du/ Strenuousness’s/commenter. Schedule of Class Activities, Quizzes, Exams and Projects See the Class Schedule link found on the homepage of the class web site. You will find topics, resources, reading assignments and important dates and deadlines for the entire semester’s work.
For the starting dates and ending dates of the pre-lecture, post-lecture and lab quizzes, also consult the Class Schedule. You may complete any quiz that has an active link. Professionalism Recognition Program All CEO 201 classes participate in the Fib’s Professionalism Recognition Program. Students who demonstrate professional behaviors in and out of class are eligible for high ratings through that program. Students who receive overall high ratings in the program will receive a letter from the Dean indicating that they ex. bibbed high professional conduct – a useful tool to distinguish yourself with employers as you seek a job.
In order to receive a “high professionalism” rating in this course, students must have: (I) missed no more than 1 class; and, (ii) received at least a 95% score on the project’s self- ere-evaluation. To receive a “Professionalism” rating, students need to have: (I) missed no more than 3 classes; and, (ii) received at least an 85% score on the project’s self-peer-evaluation. In addition to the above requirements, students will also be assessed on their participation in the classroom, timeliness to class, use of appropriate language (both written and spoken), demonstration of respectfulness, etc.
The determination of a student’s rating for professionalism is a subjective determination by the faculty member. Additional Rules of the Course Makeup Exams There will be no makeup offered for lecture exams. We drop a missing lecture exam score only for those students with institutional excuse, proper documentation or a legitimate excuse (and tell us in advance of missing the regularly scheduled lecture exam). You must deliver the institutional excuse or documentation before the next lecture exam is given. Otherwise, we record a zero for missing exams.
You have the option to take a makeup for a missed lecture exam only if you have an institutional excuse. If you decide on this option, the makeup exam must be taken before the next lecture exam. Attendance Name cards and the clicker are used to take attendance. You will receive 1. 5 percentage points credit added to your course average for perfect attendance; 1. 25 percentage points credit added to your course average for missing no more than 2 classes; 1. 00 percentage points credit added to your course average for missing no more than 4 classes; 0. 5 percentage points credit added to your course average for missing no more than 5 classes; 0. 50 percentage points credit added to your course average for missing no more than 6 classes; and, 0. 25 percentage points credit added to your course average for missing no more than 7 classes. We add this attendance score to your course average at the end of the semester before assigning a letter grade. If you do have legitimate excuses for being absent, bring proper documentation and come speak with your professor in the next class and he or she will consider removing the penalty.
The maximum amount that can be added to your course average is 1. 5 percentage points. While class attendance is required per the above stated policy, please be cautious about attending class if you are feeling ill. Please inform your professor by email if you are feeling unwell; if you are experiencing flu-like homonyms, you should not attend class; please take precautions not to infect others, and seek medical attention if your symptoms worsen Seating Arrangement In the 2nd week of the semester, we form teams to facilitate in-class discussions and team activities, and assign seating arrangement in the lectures and labs.
If you have particular preferences on sitting location, please speak with your professor as soon as possible and he will try to accommodate your request. Where is the homework? We designed this course to substitute web quizzes for the homework that is usually associated with a statistics course. It is important that you do work in addition to taking the quizzes. After you have mastered the material by making 100 on each quiz, you should use that quiz as a study aid. Go to Assessments. Find the quiz of interest. Click the View Results button. Under Attempts-number find your attempt on the quiz for which you made 100.
Click on the number for that quiz. Read each question and critically evaluate why each correct answer is correct and why each wrong answer is wrong. If you do not know why an answer is correct or not correct, then you need to do extra study in the textbook, the Speedster or the Powering slides. You must have read the required text material and studied the Powering slides before coming to lecture. Student Responsibility Taking a statistics course is challenging. You will be taking pre-lecture quizzes due before the lecture is presented, post-lecture quizzes due after the lecture is completed and lab quizzes due after the lab is completed.
You must have a personal schedule that allows you to keep up with the class. We are here to help you in any way we can, but you are responsible for your education. You must be able to take the quizzes on time, complete the assigned readings on mime, complete the team projects and attend class. According to the Arizona Board of Regents’ policy statement on Academic Credit (use Control-click), a minimum of forty-five (45) hours of work by each student is required for each unit of credit during a semester.
So for a 3-credit course, each student is required to put in at least 9 hours per week including class time. To meet this policy during summer classes means that you will need to work more than full time. Cell Phones and Music Players We do not allow cell phones and music players in lectures, labs or exams. Turn off cell phones when in class. Academic Honesty We have a zero tolerance policy in this course. We encourage students to work together, especially in lab sessions, to improve their understanding of the concepts and processes covered in this course.
This does not extend to lecture exams or the final exam. Any instance of cheating on a lecture exam or the final exam will result in immediate and automatic failure for the course, irrespective of the performance Of the student or students up to that point. Aside from the straightforward copying of answers, cheating also includes any discussion during the exam. Cell phones are not allowed anywhere on the desktop during exams. In addition to these punitive measures, a report will be filed with r-CB and the University. Plagiarism is also a form of cheating.
This relates, in particular, to the semester project that you will prepare as part of this course. You should be aware that we have thoroughly read all the projects that have been prepared for this class in the past. In addition, the data used for the analyses are changed from time-to- time. Thus, it is an easy matter for us to determine whether submissions have been popularized from previous submissions. Any confirmed instance of legalism on the project will result in all members Of the team receiving a grade of zero for the exercise.
