Academic Honesty

All acts of dishonesty in any work constitute academic misconduct. Any violation of academic ethics will be unacceptable in this class. Students must always submit work that represents his or her original ideas and words. If any of the ideas or statements are not the student’s original ones, all relevant sources must be cited. Ideas and statements that require citation are not only all hardcopy or electronic publications, copyrighted or not, but also all verbal and visual communication when the source of the cited information/content is clearly identifiable. In this course academic dishonesty may result in rejecting the student’s work and giving no credit for that assignment, or giving a failing grade for the entire course.

To avoid plagiarism, students are required to submit all their assignments to Safe Assign on BB Vista before final submission. Please remember that HCT has ZERO tolerance policy towards cheating. If you have any questions related to Safe Assign, please consult with your instructor for clarification.

Attendance and Particpation

Participation is vital. Participation does not mean just being physically present in class. The lesson can only be dynamic and interesting if each student is there and takes an active part in class activities. When you are absent, it is your responsibility to find out about the work assigned at the class you missed by contacting your classmates. It is polite to let your teacher know why you have missed a class but you will still be marked absent.

Arriving to class within five minutes after class has begun is being late. Arrving after 5 minutes is considered absent for that period. This is also true if you are late returning from a break.

Marking Guidelines

All of your written work will use the following guidelines. It is your responsibility as a student to read and understand what is required for each grade level. In addition, the MLA Style must be used for referencing.

Grade Assessment
A/A- A grade of "A" means that the work is judged to be of exceptionally high quality, going well beyond what is needed to be acceptable.  It is an excellent work with NO errors. "A-" level work shows originality, depth of thought, factual accuracy, and good logic, shows that student has met the entire requirement of the project in an excellent manner.
B/B+ A grade of "B+" means that the work is judged to be of high quality, going well beyond what is needed to be minimally acceptable.  "B" level work shows some of the same good qualities as "A-" level work, but not as consistently. (Maybe lacks originality, and is less deep and student has missed out on SOME important issues or work contains SOME errors)
C/C+ A grade of "C+" means that the work is acceptable--that is, it meets the basic standard of college level work in terms of relevance, factual accuracy, and logic.  "C" work is at the minimum acceptable level.
D A grade of "D" means that the work does NOT meet the standards for acceptable college level work, but it does exhibit some positive qualities that indicate that it deserves some credit for having been done.
F A grade of "F" means that the work is so weak that it does NOT earn college level credit or the work was not completed at all.
