Course Expectations

Please note that this course requires a 75 for a grade of “C.” This is consistent with the grading policy of the AAS Radiologic Sciences Program. This course is a prerequisite for admittance into the AAS Radiologic Sciences Program – a grade of C or higher is required.

 

Communication with Instructor: Contact information for the instructor is listed at the beginning of this syllabus.  Email is the preferred mode of communication – outside of classroom time and pre-arranged appointments.  The instructor will respond or at least acknowledge email messages from students within a maximum of five (5) business days when MSU is in session.  Beyond standard university holidays and breaks, the instructor will notify students of any extended periods of time when email contact is not practical (professional meetings, etc). The instructor’s email address is at the beginning of the syllabus.

 

When emailing the instructor, you must use the following subject header:

1011_your last name_topic of message

Example: 1011_Smith_Quiz 4

 

This course will include an UNGRADED Discussion Board on WebCT.  There will be two main sections, one section for questions for the instructors, and one section for social messages.  Students may post questions they want the instructors to answer on the Discussion Board and the instructor will respond so that the entire class will benefit from the answers. 

 

Students should periodically check the Announcement section for course updates, etc.

 

Please note: The instructor will only use the student’s MSU email account. If students use other accounts more frequently, they should have their MSU email forwarded. There will be no exceptions. If students do already have a MSU email account, they can go to http://infosys.mwsu.edu/email.asp to sign up for a MSU account and for more information. Students are responsible for updating their WebWorld information with this email address.

 

CLASS ACTIVITIES AND ASSIGNMENTS

All assignments, quizzes, group projects, discussion board, etc. must be completed and submitted by the due date indicated on the course schedule at the end of this syllabus. If a student cannot complete a course activity by the indicated due date, he or she MUST contact the course instructor IMMEDIATELY. Please note that there will be at least a 10-point penalty for any late submission and that preapproval is required. Any activity not completed and submitted by the due date will be addressed on an individual basis.

 

Pretest

The pretest must be completed BEFORE course content will appear.

 

 

Sharing information about a pretest or answers to questions on a pretest is considered cheating and is a violation of the MSU Code of Honor. Refer to the Honor System for more information.

 

Be sure to read the Instructions and Troubleshooting information before taking the pretests.

 

Independent Reading Assignments

 

Students must read the assigned lessons and supplements and complete the book, CD, and provided activities before attempting the module exams.

Module 1: Lessons 1-4

Module 2: Lessons 5-8

Module 3: Lessons 9-12

Module 4: Radiology supplement

 

Module Activities

 

Students must select one pronunciation activity from each module to complete. More information can be found in the course discussion board (Blackboard). These activities require students to record an audio file. Students must have computer capability to do so, as well as the necessary accessory equipment.

 

Sharing information about assignment answers is considered cheating and is a violation of the MSU Code of Honor. Refer to the Honor System for more information.

Module Self-Assessments

 

Self-assessments are available for each module exam. They do not count for a grade and can be taken at the volition of each individual student. They are to be taken after completing the assigned lessons and before attempting the module exams. Each assessment contains 25 questions, and students will have 40 minutes to complete each assessment. Students should be prepared to answer two listening and spelling questions. This requires students to have audio capability on the computer used for testing. Feedback is provided for each question based on students’ answers. Students may take this randomly-generated assessment an indefinite number of times

Submission Format PolicyNote: 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 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.
