WebCT Unit Quizzes - 25%
When a student has reviewed a unit and is ready for the quiz, he or she will log on to WebCT and open the quiz. The release dates for the seven unit quizzes are posted on the schedule at the end of the syllabus. Each quiz will be available from the release date through the duration of the course.
If students have technical difficulties during a quiz, they should use the “Help” link at the top toolbar in WebCT, contact the MSU Information Systems Support Staff, and send an email to the course instructor explaining what happened.
If a student finds a faulty quiz test item or believes that a quiz question has been scored incorrectly, he or she should send an email to the course instructor that includes the following:
Unit Quiz Number (I –VII)
Answer Scored as Correct by the Computer
Answer the Student Thinks Should be Correct
Rationale Supporting Why the Student’s Answer is Correct
Page numbers must be included when referencing the textbook in a rationale
After reviewing the case, if the course instructor thinks a revision is justified, the student’s quiz score will be revised to reflect the additional points and the test bank will be updated. It may take several weeks for the student to receive a response because the instructor works on batches of questions for a particular quiz at a time.
Annotated Bibliography - 25%
An annotated bibliography is a list of resources along with a summary and evaluation of the usefulness of each resource. The goals of this assignment are:
• For the student to perform scholarly research about the role of sectional imaging in Radiologic Sciences,
• For the student to develop baccalaureate writing skills about a professionally-related subject,
• For students to practice using peer-reviewed or scholarly journals rather than newsmagazines or popular press news items as research sources, and
• For students to develop skills generating a Reference List in appropriate APA format.
Each student will create a five (5) page annotated bibliography based on at least three (3) PEER-REVIEWED or SCHOLARLY journal articles that refer specifically to the role of sectional anatomy in diagnosis of a particular pathology. For example, the student may summarize three journal articles that describe the effectiveness of MRI scanning for staging of Alzheimer’s Disease.
Examples of acceptable peer-reviewed journals are listed on http://www.rtstudents.com/radiology/radiology-journals.htm
Examples of sources that are NOT acceptable include newsmagazines such as: RT Imaging, RT Advance.
FORMAT FOR BIBLIOGRAPHY
Page One: MSU Radiologic Sciences Standard Cover Page (see WebCT for link)
Page Two: Summary #1. The student will write the title of the article at the top of the page, followed by the summary of the article (approx 200 words or less).
The summary will describe the main points of the article, describe the role of sectional imaging, describe whether that procedure is done in the student’s clinical facility, and describe the student’s impression of the usefulness of the article for other technologists.
Page Three: Summary #2. same process as #1
Page Four: Summary #3. same process as #1
Page Five: Reference List – in APA format
For more information about writing annotated bibliographies:
The Annotated Bibliographies are due to the instructor as Microsoft WORD email attachments on or before the deadline indicated at the end of the syllabus. The online pathology reports must:
• Be saved in Microsoft WORD format. The instructor will not accept Microsoft WORKS or WordPerfect files.
• Be typed and double-spaced
• Be written at the baccalaureate level. Grammar (including spelling) and organization count in the grade so be sure to proofread work. Use complete sentences.
• Be submitted on time. Points will be deducted from late submissions.
• Use CORRECT current APA format to cite references. If a student does not have an APA Manual, HE/SHE SHOULD GET ONE TO BE SURE THE CORRECT FORMAT IS BEING SUBMITTED.
