1.    Written work – Should be completed in a professional style following APA 7th Edition. Using correct spelling and grammar are important writing skills you must know well because your students will learn from you. Therefore, most written assignments will have 10% - 20% of the grade based on spelling, grammar, punctuation, and a professional writing style. Expectations are for quality work. 

2.    Adhering to professional ethics – When using professional sources in your writing, please cite sources you have used or ideas you have adapted when completing assignments. Use of copyrighted materials must adhere to legal and ethical guidelines. If part of an assignment is submitted for credit in more than one course, both professors must pre-approve this dual credit and the dual use should be referenced clearly on both assignments.

 

3.    Americans with Disabilities Act: The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal anti-discrimination statute that provides comprehensive civil rights protection for persons with disabilities. Students with a disability must be registered with Disability Support Services before classroom accommodations can be provided. If you have a documented disability that will impact your work in this class, please contact me to discuss your needs.

4.    Plagiarism Statement: “By enrolling in this course, the student expressly grants MSU a ‘limited right’ in all intellectual property created by the student for the purpose of this course. The ‘limited right’ shall include but shall not be limited to the right to reproduce the student’s work product in order to verify originality, authenticity, and educational purposes.” from Student Handbook


5.    Submission of Assignments: All assignments must be submitted to the assignment page for this course on D2L prior to class on the date due. Please plan ahead for assignment submission, in case you have difficulty attaching your assignments. A minimum of 5 points will be deducted for assignments not submitted through D2L into the appropriate folder. Hard copies will not be accepted. In addition, all papers must also be uploaded to Turn It In. I will email you the information on how to set up your account.


6.   


This is a hybrid course so attendance is not part of the requirement in the online portion. However, the course is challenging. If you do not stay on top of the reading, you will quickly get left behind.

General guidelines for time commitment are as follows.

2-3 hours per hour of course credit for class preparation (reading)

1 hour per hour of course credit for course engagement (course engagement, watching videos, discussion etc..)


This means for a 3 hour course you should expect to devote 10-12 hours per week.


One of the cornerstones to the WCOE Ed.D experience is the opportunity to interact with colleagues from across other campuses, districts and professions. To this end, we hold Saturday classes three times per long semester. Students are expected to maintain a physical and professional engagement in these experiences. However, we do understand some circumstances cannot be avoided. Therefore, we have established the following policy


1 absence = make up required experiences/coursework with colleagues

2 absences = final grade will be lowered by one letter and make up required experiences/coursework with colleagues

3 absences = F


COVID policy – if a student is quarantined due to COVID, that student may Zoom a Saturday class. Under these circumstances a student will be required to provide documentation of quarantine requirements from his/her public health district or health care provider.

 

Grade

Each test will cover the material only up to the test itself. In other words, there is not a comprehensive final. In addition, other opportunities will provide the opportunity to show what you know through your writing and participation. By the end of this course, you should have a basic framework of the literature review written for your dissertation.


Midterm                     100pts (March 4)

Final                           100pts (April 29)

Rough Draft Lit Review        (April 5)

Review of Literature  100pts (April 25)


 Due Dates and Late Penalties: *Late work is not accepted for any reason. A due date may be extended depending on coverage of material, but once the due date is set, no assignments will be accepted beyond that point**Extra credit is not available.

Note: You may not submit a paper for a grade in this class that already has been (or will be) submitted for a grade in another course, unless you obtain the explicit written permission of me and the other instructor involved in advance.

Plagiarism is the use of someone else's thoughts, words, ideas, or lines of argument in your own work without appropriate documentation (a parenthetical citation at the end and a listing in "Works Cited")-whether you use that material in a quote, paraphrase, or summary. It is a theft of intellectual property and will not be tolerated, whether intentional or not.

Student Honor Creed

As an MSU Student, I pledge not to lie, cheat, steal, or help anyone else do so."

As students at MSU, we recognize that any great society must be composed of empowered, responsible citizens. We also recognize universities play an important role in helping mold these responsible citizens. We believe students themselves play an important part in developing responsible citizenship by maintaining a community where integrity and honorable character are the norm, not the exception.

Thus, We, the Students of Midwestern State University, resolve to uphold the honor of the University by affirming our commitment to complete academic honesty. We resolve not only to be honest but also to hold our peers accountable for complete honesty in all university matters.

We consider it dishonest to ask for, give, or receive help in examinations or quizzes, to use any unauthorized material in examinations, or to present, as one's own, work or ideas which are not entirely one's own. We recognize that any instructor has the right to expect that all student work is honest, original work. We accept and acknowledge that responsibility for lying, cheating, stealing, plagiarism, and other forms of academic dishonesty fundamentally rests within each individual student.

We expect of ourselves academic integrity, personal professionalism, and ethical character. We appreciate steps taken by University officials to protect the honor of the University against any who would disgrace the MSU student body by violating the spirit of this creed.

Written and adopted by the 2002-2003 MSU Student Senate.
