This course will be graded on hours completed in practicum and mandatory scan assessments. 75% of final grade will be composed of successful completion of required practicum hours and submission of clinical paperwork.
Clinicals will be graded based off of the evaluations.
An evaluation with a score of 3.7-4.0 will be given a 100 (A)
An evaluation with a score of 3.6-3.3 will be given a 92 (A)
An evaluation with a score of 3.0-3.2 will be given an 83 (B)
An evaluation with a score of 2.0-2.9 will be given a 75 (C)
An evaluation with a score below 2.0 will be given a 70 (F)
25% of final grade will be composed of completion of required mandatory scan grades
Deductions in overall grade due to attendance and tardy violations will follow the student handbook policies. Deductions will also occur for forgetting to clock in and out or needing to complete an exception. After the third occurrence per semester a point will be deducted from overall grade for each occurrence there after.
The following grade scale applies throughout this course:
A = 92 - 100
B = 83 - 91
C = 75 - 82
F = less than 75
Note: A grade of "D" is not possible in this course
When a final grade of “incomplete” is appropriate, a written contract to remove the “I” will be prepared by the course instructor and signed by the instructor and student. Normally, the grade of “I” must be converted to a passing grade within 90 days of the conclusion of the course.
Under a very rare circumstance, a time extension of an additional 90 days is possible. Each case will be handled on an individual basis and no one case shall set a precedent for another case. If the “I” is not removed in accordance with the contract, the final course grade will be recorded as an “F”.
** Tutoring is mandatory for any scan grade below a 75. It is your responsibility to schedule this with the appropriate instructor or tutor. You will receive a zero for that mandatory scan if the tutoring sessions are not completed within 2 weeks of receiving your grade.
Regular and punctual attendance is necessary for satisfactory achievement.
Attendance is mandatory and must be recorded daily with trajecsys. Absences must be documented with a clinical absence form found in the student handbook and made up at the site the absence occured. Failure to report absences will result in grade deductions. Please see sonography student handbook for all details.
Tardy policy is also in the student handbook. Please refer for details.
