METHOD OF EVALUATION:

Students will be evaluated based on their assessment scores and class participation. Passing the didactic portion of this course requires a cumulative score of 70% or greater which includes course assessments (80%) and class participation (20%).
Course assessments include an assessment of each unit and as well as a Top 200 assessment associated with specific units.  Students will have three opportunities to reach a 70% score on these two types of assessments.  If a score is 70% or greater on any one assessment, the student will automatically be moved to the next assessment.
Homework assignments are tools to enable students to gauge their understanding of the material. As such, students are highly encouraged to complete all assignments. There are selected homework assignments that are required to be posted to the course discussion board. These required postings will be evaluated in terms of class participation. Completion of the course assessments and the class participation together will determine if a student will be admitted to an externship site.  If students feel they need additional help understanding the material, they should contact their instructor.  Failure to successfully complete both the didactic portion of the course and the externship will affect the student’s ability to receive the certificate of completion.
