This course uses Desire-to-Learn (D2L) entirely.

Each student is expected to be familiar with this program as it provides a primary source of communication regarding assignments, examination materials, and general course information

Lecture Unit Exams

·      There will be four multiple-choice unit exams in class that make up for 90% of your lecture grade. Each one will be take online D2L within the dates and times specified. Online exams are to be treated with the same honesty as proctored exams. Notes, textbooks, internet resources etc. are not permitted during exams. 

  Integrity is expected from all students. Any action suspicious of cheating, attempting to cheat, or helping someone cheat (such as, but not limited to, collaborating on exams, using notes, having a cell phone or any electronic device out during an exam, or recording or communicating exam content to other students, plagiarizing or otherwise copying lab work) will result in a grade of zero. You may also be dropped from the course and ultimately reported to the Dean of Students for academic dishonesty. 

At the end of the semester, the lecture and lab components of this course will be combined into a single weighted average, with 60% of the final grade coming from lecture, and the remaining 40% coming from lab.

·   Attendance in automatically recorded each time you log in to D2L

·   However, if you fail to log in weekly or have missed an exam, and are at risk of failing you may be dropped from the course. You will be contacted by email before being dropped. 

Late or Missed Exams

·      If you know in advance that you will be unable to take an online exam within the specified time period then you must notify the instructor before the exam date to reschedule a time.


·      For unforeseeable occurrences:

o  A make-up exam will only be allowed if the student contacts the instructor during business hours of the same day that the exam was originally scheduled.

o  If a make-up exam is granted, it must be taken during the re-scheduled time slot.

Failure to contact the instructor within the accepted time or failure to take the make-up exam will result in a zero for that exam.

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.
