Description of Graded Elements of the Course:


Student test assessments will be graded on the ability to choose the correct answer in regard to multiple choice questions, test questions that require a missing word and brief statements.

Performance assessments are designed to enhance the student’s level of competency based on the course outcomes and expectations of the industry.

Students cannot advance to the Lab Performance Exams until the required practice labs are completed and ALL Practice Labs and Performance Labs must be complete before Course Comprehensive Final Exam will be administered.

 Safety Procedures

Students are required to participate in a safety lecture prior to performing in the laboratory portion of the course. A written test will be given to each participating student covering the presented safety materials. Students must complete the safety test with 100% accuracy prior to receiving lab assignments.
 
All lecture and laboratory safety rules and regulations will be followed in every detail. Failure to comply with this policy willresult in dismissal from class until further notice.
Acceptance Attire
 
§NIOSH approved with clear safety glasses will be worn at all times
§Full-toed shoes (no slippers, sandals, flip-flops, or bare feet)
§Full length pants (must extend past ankles)
§Pants must fit around waist within 3 inches of belly button
§Shirts (no sleeveless or tank tops)
§Shirts with and without buttons can be worn with instructor approval on neck opening exposure
§Clothing must be reasonably snug fitting (not excessively loose, baggy, torn)
§An inappropriate slogan on clothing is not acceptable.
§Jogging clothes, sweats, or warm-ups are not acceptable.
§Appropriate headgear
§The Instructor has the final authority concerning matters of dress
Classroom and Lab Behaviors
 
§Smoking in classrooms, laboratories and shops are prohibited
§Smoking is permitted only in designated areas
§Smoking is prohibited within 20 feet of a building, when permitted
§Smoking is prohibited within the fenced area surrounding the ACM Labs.
§The consumption of drinks, candy and other food items is restricted to lounge areas
§Eating or drinking in laboratories are hazardous because of the toxic nature of lab materials being handled
§No horseplay at any time
§Be responsible – Be a professional
 

Daily, Weekly, Assignments and Participation Grades:
 
A class participation grade will be taken each and every class day. The quiz or assignment will be the participation grade if given. Otherwise, 25 will be given for attending and being on time. A 12.5 will be given if you are tardy. An unexcused absence will earn a grade of “ZERO”. The Midterm and Final Exams will include the participation grade for those days. 25% of the exam grade will be deducted if you are tardy. A grade of “ZERO” will be earned if you have an unexcused absence.
                                                                                                          

Tardiness:


When a student arrives or leaves after participation record (role) has been taken it becomes the student’s responsibility to alert the instructor of his/her arrival or departure and confirm that the proper update has been made in the student participation record. If the instructor fails to document the arrival or departure it is the student’s fault. This has to be this way especially in the lab environment because the instructor does not keep his participation record on his person at all times.

Leaving the lecture or lab early without proper notice could become a safety issue and needs to be taken very seriously. In an emergency situation each student must be accounted for.

Please, out of respect for first responders, instructors and classmates who may go back into a dangerous situation to get you out, let the instructor know when you leave.

Any earned non-participation time will be recorded, tallied and included in the 10% non-participation policy.

Each Tardy will be 1% addition of non-participation to the non-participation policy.

Late Work/Test Policies
 
All students are required to be present for class. However, unexpected circumstances will occur. If a student has an excused absence, death or illness in the immediate family, the student must notify the instructor of record immediately. If a test is missed, the instructor has to give permission for makeup. The missed test must be made up before the next scheduled period of instruction.
 
An excused absence only allows for makeup of missed assignments or test. The absence is recorded. Excused absences are determined by the instructor.
 
Assignments are due at the beginning of class of the set due date. Late assignments will not be accepted and a grade of “zero” will be earned for said assignment. Students who prior contacted the instructor may be considered excused.
Pop Tests
 
Can be given at any time by the instructor and are not make up items.
Exemptions
 
Students can be exempted from a final exam if:
A.    Lecture average is 90 or above
B.     Attendance is perfect
C.     Assignments are completed and turned in
 
Cell phone Policy
 
Cell phones may be brought into the classroom or lab. However, they must be in the off or vibrate position.
 
Anyone failing to adhere to this policy will be dismissed from class and issued a non-participation grade (absence) for that period of instruction.
 
Departmental Awards Ceremony/Cleanup Policy
 
Each student is expected to participate in the awards ceremony and cleanup activities once the date has been identified.
 
Students’ final exam grade is dependent upon their participation at these functions. One half (½) of the final exam grade for the course is participation. One half (½) of the final exam grade is completing the final exam for the course.
 
Students with unexpected circumstances can be excused by the department chair only.
 
TSTC school calendar identifies the end of the semester. Student break begins the day after.
