AS may consist of watching a video, eating a case, news or periodical article in advance, and/or completing a self- assessment, questionnaire, or contributing to an online discussion. Several AS are graded on a Credit/No Credit basis (you will see either “1” or “O” points in Model). All AS have specific opening and closing dates. Opening and closing dates for each exercise may vary. Opening and closing dates are displayed on Model, and will not be changed during the course of the class. You are responsible for keeping track of all opening and closing dates.

While some AS are due the evening before your class meets and many of them are Other AS will remain open (meaning you will be able to submit responses) until the Sunday evening after that weeks class, and they will close only on this Sunday evening, prior to when the next topic is due (the week after they opened). Usually, AS will open the week prior to when the particular topic is discussed. Anyone who submits the assignment after that date will receive zero credit. There will be approximately 14 As.
Again, you are responsible for keeping track of all opening and closing dates in Model. AS cannot e re-opened once their deadline has passed. In-class time will then be spent clarifying the material through mint-lectures, discussing material related to the chapter readings, and/or debriefing results from online activities. Post-class online activities will then consist of a Quiz (see below) and or other Assignments to be completed either individually or by your group. Written assignments will be worth up to 4 points and will be graded using a 4-point scale (4 A, B, 2 = C, 1 = D, F).
