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.

Participation Policy

Due to COVID-19 circumstances students are required to check Moodle and email for updates to "Announcements" in Moodle or homework, lesson resource or videos, and tests in the Moodle "Weekly" sections. 

Tests and homework must be completed by end of stated due dates. Complications with student activity will require student communication with instructor by phone, email or Moodle messages.

 

A student is expected to attend and participate during the scheduled period of lab instruction.  This begins with the first scheduled class day of the term.  A student deemed a non-participant for more than 10% ( 6.0 hours) of the lab periods, regardless of grades earned on assignments, will have to repeat the course.  Participation in Moodle learning activities is recorded.  Students not participating in Moodle activities for more than 11 consecutive school days, excluding weekends, will be deemed a non-participant and will have to repeat the course.

A student is considered tardy up to 15 minutes into the scheduled lecture or lab, and thereafter will be considered a non-participant for that period of instruction and receive an absense.

A sum of two tardies is equivalent to one non- participation period.

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 make up. The missed test must be made up before the next scheduled period of instruction.

An excused absence only allows for make up of missed assignments or test. The absence is recorded.

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.

 

 

PopTests

 

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

Plagiarism:

Plagiarism is the unauthorized use of someone else’s material, which is then presented as being the result of one’s own research or insight. Plagiarism is intellectual theft and is unacceptable in any endeavor.

Any student/students found guilty of this offense will earn a failing grade for the course.

Cell Phone Policy

 

Cell phones may not be brought into the classroom or lab as they are unsafe and disruptive to the environment.

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..
