Students will be required to utilize such sources to obtain peer-reviewed articles for reference in all course assignments.

The required assignments will be discussed throughout the semester giving adequate time for questions and clarification prior to the date that assignments are due.

All students are responsible for reviewing the School

Catalog Policies http://www.fnc_edu/publications/Cataloggeneral.p d f

Students are expected to logon to Blackboard at least once every 24 hours to ensure that they remain on schedule and aware of assignments or any changes to class schedules. All assignments are due on the due date and at the specified time, and must all be submitted via Blackboard. All major written assignments will be submitted through designated TurnItIn links accessible via Blackboard.

All students are required to access their university email accounts at least twice per week as important information will be shared using this form of communication. In emergency situations such as natural disasters, important information regarding university functions and operations will be communicated via email.

Students will be graded on the achievement of the objectives, not on the effort put into completing assignments. All online discussions, written assignments and documentation of others’ ideas and words in presentations must be in APA 6th edition formatStudents have one opportunity to complete each assignment. Papers cannot be rewritten and presentations cannot be resubmitted in an attempt to obtain a higher grade.

10. Grading Criteria:

All course assignments must be completed and submitted as Microsoft Word documents. Discussion Posts:

Each student must be actively engaged in course discussions. Each student must post one original post weekly with a minimum of 250 words addressing the assigned question or topic of the week. Postings must be original, clear and relevant to the weekly assigned course topic. Weekly postings must also contain 2 peer-reviewed reference articles/sources that are to be used to support posting. Students must also create 2 response posts of at least 150 words that are relevant to and addresses 2 other student’s original posting regarding the specified discussion topic.

Thus, in total students are to post a total of 3 posts weekly; one original and 2 responses. Lastly, students will be required to reply to posts and questions posed by the course instructor on discussion board posts. Failure to reply to instructor posts/questions will result in point deductions to discussion post grade.

 

Case Studies: Students are required to complete case studies as they are assigned via Blackboard.

The case study rubric will be posted on the Blackboard and will be available for viewing by students. After posting a critique of the article, students must also respond to 2 other original posts.

Reflection and Scholarly Papers:

All papers must be completed and submitted as Microsoft Word documents. Assignments submitted as a PDF or any other document will not be graded. All written assignments submitted through TurnItIn will be evaluated using the TurnItIn similarity index to determine if work submitted by students is original and not plagiarized. All work submitted by students must contain no more than 20% similarity index, any percentage greater than 20% is unacceptable and considered as plagiarism Papers submitted with greater than 20% similarity index maybe receive a grade of zero.

Student Code of Ethics:

Cheating or plagiarism is dishonest, undermines the necessary trust upon which relations between students and faculty are based, and is unacceptable conduct. Students who engage in cheating or plagiarism will be subject to academic sanctions, including a lowered or failing grade in a course; and the possibility of an additional administrative sanction, including probation, suspension, or expulsion. Cheating is the act of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit for academic work by using dishonest means. Cheating at FNU includes but is not limited to: Copying, in part or whole from another’s examination, paper, mathematical analysis, research or creative project, or the like; Submitting as one’s own work an examination, paper, mathematical analysis, research or creative project, or the like which has been purchased, borrowed, or stolen; or fabricating data; Consulting notes, sources, or materials not specifically authorized by the instructor during an examination; Employing a surrogate to take an examination, write a paper, do mathematical analysis, or complete, in part or wholly, an evaluation instrument; Aiding or abetting any act that a reasonable person would conclude, when informed of the evidence, to be a dishonest means of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit for academic work; and committing any act that a reasonable person would conclude, when informed of the evidence, to be a dishonest means of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit for academic work.

 

Plagiarism is the act of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit for academic work by representing the work of another as one’s own without the necessary and appropriate acknowledgment. More specifically, plagiarism is: The act of incorporating the ideas, words of sentences, paragraphs, or parts thereof without appropriate acknowledgment and representing the product as one’s own work; and The act of representing another’s intellectual work such as musical composition, computer program, photographs, painting, drawing, sculpture, or research or the like as one’s own. If a student is in doubt about the nature of plagiarism, he/she should discuss the matter with the course instructor. All written assignments will be submitted via Turnitin for evaluation. Papers submitted with a Similarity Index of greater than 20% will be viewed as an indication of high plagiarism content and subject to receive a grade of zero.

 

Theft – Copying computer programs owned, leased, or rented by the College for use by the student in his or her course of studies is considered theft and will be dealt with according to the laws covering such actions and to the College norms for disciplinary actions. In cases like these, the Campus Dean will convene a Hearing Committee which will hear, investigate and render a report to the Campus Dean. This Committee will be composed of three members from the faculty or staff. According to the findings, the Campus Dean has the choice to make a decision. If this decision is not acceptable to those involved, a petition to the Dean to appoint an Honor Court must be signed by at least three people. The Honor Court procedure is explained in the Student Handbook.

 

Religious Holidays:

Religious holidays are an excused absence, but not beyond the day for the holiday itself. Students should make their requests known at the beginning of the semester and arrangements must be made with the faculty member for missed work.
