|Attendance Policy||Research has shown a cause and effect relationship between attendance and college success. A student who is absent for 3 days may be dropped from the program by the program director. Attendance at all asynchronous online discussions is expected and demonstrates professional behavior and accountability. It is the student's responsibility to notify the instructor prior to any absence.|
|Determination of Final Grade||
Successful completion of the course requires the student to complete the required assignments, and participate in course activities. Questions and disagreements concerning points/grades on assignments must be raised with the faculty member prior to the end of the course. In cases where final grades are “on the borderline” between two grades, the faculty reserves the right to use the level and quality of class participation as the determination of the final grade. Students must earn a grade of at least “C” to receive credit towards the ADN degree. Any grade lower than a “C” will require the student to repeat the course.
All participation will be electronically monitored.
Grades will be calculated using the following percentage distributions:
90 to 100% = A 75 to 79% = C 00 to 59% = F
80 to 89% = B 60 to 74% = D
Graded Course Components:
