Michael Girvin’s PowerPoints and Videos:
Each week you review Michael Girvin’s PowerPoints and Videos. You can access the PowerPoints and videos in the Lessons area of our Angel web site. See class schedule for details.
There is one test each week. You can watch the Introductory Class Video to see how to take a Test. The tests will be multiple choice and True / False questions. Questions will come from the textbook content and the Michael Girvin’s PowerPoints and videos. For final grading, your two lowest test scores will be subtracted. The weekly tests will be available between 9 AM Monday morning and noon on Friday. The weekly test will be removed at noon each Friday. If you do not take the test during this time period, you cannot retake the test unless there is a documented emergency. An example of a documented emergency is if you can provide an emergency room visit receipt or doctor’s note. Do not post questions about the tests to the Discussion Board.
Cheating on a test:
cannot have someone else take the test for you. You cannot talk to others about
the test. You cannot post question on Angel about the test. If you cheat, you
will earn a zero grade for the class.
Discussion Board Post Rules:
You can make at least 2 posts per week and earn 2 points for those 2 posts. You can post more than 2 times per week, but no points will be earned. You can watch the Introductory Class Video to see how to make a Discussion Board Post. When you post, you must write your own ideas, spell/grammar check the post, and add something beneficial to the discussion (example: your post must not just say something like; “I agree”). Discussion Board Posts that do not follow these guidelines will be removed from the Discussion Board. The weekly Discussion Board will be available between 9 AM Monday morning and noon on Friday. The weekly Discussion Board will be removed at noon each Friday. Do not post questions about the tests to the Discussion Board. You are required to read all Discussion Board Posts.
