Expected Student Behavior

MAKE-UP POLICY

If a student is absent on the day of a major exam, the work will be graded as follows:

  1.  In order to be fair to students who take scheduled exams at the designated time, makeup exams will lose 15% of the original value for the first exam missed, 20% for the second, 25% for the third, and so on of an additional 5% loss for each missed exam.
  2. Major exams must be made up within one school day.
  3. Make up exams may not be eligible for bonus points. 
  4. Any exam score of an 80 or below must remediate. Remediation will be done on campus after the exam and handed in to the instructor at that time. If remediation is not turned in on time because you miss class, 2% for each day for each remediation late, will be deducted from the students overall final grade. Remediation is elaborating on why the correct answer is correct, you may not submit just the question and the answer.  
  5. Bonus points do NOT count toward NOT remediating. The base exam score is the score used to evaluate if a student needs to remediate. 
  6. Class activities cannot be made up.  It is the responsibility of the student to contact the instructor to acquire material due to absence. from class.
  7. NOTE:  Other arrangements may be made with instructor’s permission on a case-by-case basis.  It is the sole responsibility of the student to communicate the need for other options regarding make-up policies.

 WITHDRAWAL DEADLINE

The last day to drop or withdrawal is provided on the college Web site.

NOTE:  Nuclear medicine technology students who withdrawal from this course will be delayed in completing the major components on the AAS degree in nuclear medicine.

To continue in the program, a student may repeat a NMTT course only one time and may repeat no more than two NMTT courses while enrolled in the program. The term “repeat” shall be interpreted to mean re-enrollment following withdrawal, drop or unsatisfactory grade.

Program must be completed within 36 months of start of core nuclear medicine program/classes.

PHONES/PAGERS/LAPTOPS/OTHER TECHNOLOGICAL DEVICES

Cell phones/smart watches and other electronic devices detract from the learning environment.  For this reason, they should be turned off and put away out of view upon entering the classroom.  If you need to record a lecture you must use a recording device other than your phone. Personal laptops may be used if the student is using it to take notes only.

 STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

Any student, who, because of a disabling condition, may require some special arrangements in order to meet course requirements.

Contact disability Services at 345-5639 for any special need.

 GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE

A student who may have concerns or problems with the course or course instructor should make every attempt to resolve the problem with the course instructor.  In the event that it is not successful, the student may appeal the decision of the instructor to the program director, then the Dean of the Health Sciences Division, the Vice President of Academic Affairs, and the College President, in that order.

 STUDENTS RIGHTS/RESPONSIBILITIES

Please refer to the Students Rights and Responsibilities publication of Amarillo College (Web site or hard copy available in student services).

Students are responsible for maintaining all aspects set forth within the publication so that professionalism is maintained.

THE CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT

Mutual respect is foremost in this classroom.  Please make yourself at home within the classroom, regarding your peers and instructors with utmost respect.

Students should feel free to express ideas/thoughts without making others in the classroom feel uncomfortable.

 AC ONLINE COMMUNICATION (BlackBoard)

Use your personal account to check grades, emails, download course lecture material, etc. 

Students are responsible for checking their accounts daily so that communication about program/course information is current.

Students may also use any of the instructor contact information provided on the syllabus or classroom schedule provided each semester.

Grading Criteria

REQUIRED ASSIGNMENTS

The course will consist of the following activities to be scored for course credit:

  1. **Major Exams (70%) Comprehensive Final Exam (counts as major exam). The final exam counts as one exam. 
  2. **Assignments/Quizzes/Discussion Board/Presentations (30%)
  3. **At the end of the course, the grades earned worth 30% from all assignments/quizzes/DBs (any work besides exams) will  be added into the student's course grade average if the student has earned at least an 80% average on the exams. In other words, until all exams are graded, the "Course Grade" visible in Blackboard will be a grade earned from exams only at 100% weighting. Upon an 80 overall exam average, then the exams will count for 70% and assignments 30% and that will be your final grade reflected in the grade book. In the event points are taken off your final overall grade due to not responding to feedback, etc. the final grade is reflected on the transcripts not BB.
  4. Any missed assignments to include quizzes and Discussion Board will be recorded in the grade book as a zero. Please communicate with the instructor if you will not be able to complete an assignment on time due to extenuating circumstances. You must complete assignments regardless in order to move on to the exams. Partial credit for late assignments may be given, however Missed quizzes will be recorded as a zero in the grade book.When information is missing from an assignment and feedback is left in the grade book for what needs to be corrected, the student has 48 hours to email the missing information to the instructor or 10% of the assignment grade will be reduced for each day it is late. It is the students responsibility to check Blackboard everyday. For example if you log on on Tuesday and there is in no bubble indicating feedback, but there is a bubble on Wednesday indicating feedback was left, you have until Friday at midnight to submit the missing information. 
  5. A passing grade for each exam is expected.  If a student does not pass an exam, the student is assigned an "at risk score". Mandatory remediation occurs on a score of 80 or below for the exam and is available right after the exam and turned in at that time, or the next class meeting if it was an online exam. The student will come an hour early and remediate and turn it in at that time if it was an online exam. See below.  
  6. Any assignment or exam with a score of 80 or below requires mandatory remediation. Exam remediation takes place in class right after the exam, or the next meeting if it was an online exam (student must come in an hour early), and is turned in at that time. For each remediation, each day it is late, 2% per day per remediation will be taken off the total course grade if the student misses class and cannot remediate as remediation must be scheduled. Remediation is elaborating on why the correct answer is correct, you may not submit just the question and the answer.  Remediation may only be done on single, blank paper, not a notebook.

  7. The course content is comprehensive in nature so that students are expected to carry information from one semester to the next.
  8. NOTE:  Chapter objectives/key terms/study guide/chapter summary from review book will be used to prepare for exams utilizing textbooks and PowerPoint/discussion.  These items will be turned in by each student prior to each exam.  Failure to turn in the items will result in a drop in a letter grade  (10 points) for each exam that the items are linked to. Key terms and objectives that do not meet the benchmark example will be returned to the student to be redone and 10 points taken from the exam. Incomplete work will result in 10 points off the exam. (example only completing 7 out of 20 objectives or key terms, or not meeting the % of pages on a study guide or chapter summary).
  9. Study guide must meet the following criteria: One or more question per slide count. If there are 300 slides your study guide needs to have 300 questions. If there are 50 slides your study guide needs to have 50 questions, etc. If it does not meet the criteria it is 10 points off the exam. This may change throughout the course based on exam grades. 
  10. NOTE: You must complete your assignments in order to take the section major exam
  11. If this course is selected to participate in community service to have the lowest exam grade dropped, this is only applicable to students passing the course. Community service cannot be used to take a student from failing to passing. 

FINAL GRADE EVALUATION (NO ROUNDING of grade)

A= 94.5-100            C=80-84.4

B=84.5-94.4            F=less than 79.9

MAKE-UP POLICY

If a student is absent on the day of a major exam, the work will be graded as follows:

  1. In order to be fair to students who take scheduled exams at the designated time, makeup exams will lose 15% of the original value, the second missed exam is 25% reduction, the third exam missed is 25% reduction, and so on. 
  2. Major exams must be made up within one school day.

NOTE:  Other arrangements may be made with instructor’s permission on a case-by-case basis.  It is the sole responsibility of the student to communicate the need for other options regarding make-up policies. Please do not wait until an exam failure to notify the instructor of extenuating circumstances. 

NOTE on Plagiarism. Copying my notes word for word or the text book is plagiarism, you must paraphrase it in your own words. Copying another students assignment, even if you worked together is cheating and plagiarism. Self-plagiarism is also considered cheating. If you are repeating this course, you may not turn in the same work from the course you failed. This is self-plagiarism and is not allowed. Self-plagiarism is grounds for removal from the class with a final grade of an F. The course cannot be repeated, so you are then removed from the program. In order to avoid self plagiarism, all assignments in repeated courses must be hand written if they were originally typed, and typed if they were originally hand written. 

NOTE: Copying and Pasting Instructor notes to complete assignments is considered plagiarism. Copying each others assignments is cheating. Complete assignment in your own words while utilizing instructor notes, and working together

Taking exams online or in person: scratch paper must be single (not a notebook) and both front and back shown to the instructor before and after the exam. Items allowed in the testing space: pen or pencil, blank single scratch paper, and calculator.

Reviewing exams from home is not permitted and is considered cheating. There is a zero tolerance for viewing exams at home. BB reports are run to verify. Taking pictures of an exam,writing an entire exam down, asking for answers during an exam, copying and pasting an exam, screen shots of an exam, are all considered cheating. Passing information from an exam to a student (first or second year) that has not taken the exam is cheating. There is zero tolerance for cheating and you will be removed immediately.  You may not wear a hat or cap during an exam and arms and palms of hands must be visible for in person or online testing. You may not leave during an exam. You must have an adequate environment scan if testing online (see handbook). You must have an external webcam for online testing.

Reviewing exams on campus: you may not write down the entire exam, only what you missed and is to be shown to the instructor upon completion. The student must use single sheets of paper and not use a notebook. At no time during exam review will the student be allowed access to a phone, smart watch or any type of camera.

NOTE: Exams are not to be looked at at home, only on campus with the instructor. If an exam is turned on for a student on campus and a student at home looks at it, it will result in immediate expulsion from the program. After an exam is turned on for review, if all students aren't present,  a report for Blackboard will be run to show if any students logged on from home and viewed the exam.

Attendance

ATTENDANCE POLICY

Regular attendance is necessary for satisfactory achievement. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the student to attend class. Likewise, prompt arrival to class is also expected. Attendance will be recorded. Late students will not be allowed into the classroom as we will start on time and it is a distraction to students when someone comes in late. Missing class or being late counts as an infraction, simply be there and be on time. Five points from your overall grade for being late and ten points for missing. Three tardies or two missed days equals an F for the course. 

To be successful and your attendance is critical to your success.  In order to be fair, there is no distinction between an excused and an unexcused absence.  If/when you do miss class, it is your responsibility to obtain notes from your classmates. Do not ask the instructor for notes.

HOWEVER, if you are ill please provide a positive COVID or COVID quarantine note, flu, or strep test and stay home. If these are negative and you feel that you must attend class and are coughing, running fever, vomiting, etc... get a mask and sit away from other students.  Another option is to get a digital recorder and have a classmate record the lecture if you must miss class.

Calendar

The spring semester is 16 weeks long (17 including fall break).  Methodology lectures, class activities and major topic exams will be given in 15 weeks, and the final exam will be given the sixteenth week.
