Grading Standards

 

 

  • Evaluation Method

Your performance will be tested regularly throughout the semester by regular assignments from the book and a final comprehensive design project.  No exam is given in this class.             

 

  • Course Grade

The final grade for the course will be based on the homework assignment scores, a review test, the final project and your attitude in class.  The final project is worth 100 points, each assignment is worthy 20 points, and the maximum score for attitude is 10.     The final projects contributes 30%, the average for the assignments contributes 50%, and the score for attitude (attendance) contributes 10%. A review test contributes 10%

Attendance is considered very important in this course.

The overall average score (X) for the course is determined as follows:

 

X =0.3 x (Final Project score) + 0.5 x (Average Homework Assignment score)

     + 0.10 x (attitude/participation/attendance score) + 0.10 x (Review test)

 


The final letter grade for the course is based on the value of X and is determined from to the following grade levels:


Submission Format Policy

 

  • Laboratory Format

This course consists of a single four-hour session per week.  You will be spending your time working the examples given in the book using SolidWorks.  During this time the instructor is available for help. 

 

  • Evaluation Method

Your performance will be tested regularly throughout the semester by regular assignments from the book and a final comprehensive design project.  No exam is given in this class.             

 

  • Course Grade


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.

Late Paper Policy

 

 

GENERAL GUIDELINES

 

  • Plan on spending at least 6 hours outside of class to study the material and to work on homework assignments.  Do not wait until the last day to start working on your homework or prepare for the exam.   
  • Read the course material before coming to class. 
  • Utilize the office hours throughout the semester.   
  • Be advised that you will be penalized for lack of neatness.
  • Although you are strongly encouraged to study in group, you must work individually when you solve homework problems. 

 

SUBMISSION POLICY:

All home works and projects should be turned in at the beginning of class. 10% will be deducted for each homework and project turned in late starting with the due date


Plagiarism Policy 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.

Students with Disabilities The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal anti-discrimination statute that provides comprehensive civil rights protection for persons with disabilities. Among other things, this legislation requires that all students with disabilities be guaranteed a learning environment that provides for reasonable accommodation of their disabilities. If you believe you have a disability requiring an accommodation, please contact the Disability Support Services in Room 168 of the Clark Student Center, 397-4140.

Safe Zones Statement The professor considers this classroom to be a place where you will be treated with respect as a human being - regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, political beliefs, age, or ability. Additionally, diversity of thought is appreciated and encouraged, provided you can agree to disagree. It is the professor's expectation that ALL students consider the classroom a safe environment.

Contacting your Instructor All instructors in the Department have voicemail in their offices and MWSU e-mail addresses. Make sure you add your instructor's phone number and e-mail address to both email and cell phone lists of contacts.

Attendance Requirements

 

 

The final grade for the course will be based on the homework assignment scores, the final project and your attitude in class.  The final project is worth 100 points, each assignment is worthy 20 points, and the maximum score for attitude is 10.     The final projects contributes 30%, the average for the assignments contributes 60%, and the score for attitude (attendance) contributes 10%. 

Attendance is considered very important in this course.
