Academic Dishonesty Policy and Penalty for Violation:
Cheating or Plagiarism will not be tolerated. If any participant is found violating this rule, the whole exam, will be graded
with a zero, and the person will be reported to the Dean for Student Services for the corresponding disciplinary action
from the college.
Assignments, Tests, Quizzes and Final Exam Schedule, with percentage/points of grade:
Reading text material, Power point presentations, attending and participating in class discussions, and taking the 6 on
line exams with an average grade above the limits of approval.
There are no midterm or final exams. Every participant should take 6 exams on line, using the web enhanced component
of this course. Each one of those exams have 20 multiple choice questions, which should be answered in one attempt for
a total of 30 minutes. Each exam will be available to be opened for about two weeks, day and night, according to the
schedule provided below, to be taken at any time during that window or period, but once you decided to opened and
take it, the 20 questions will be available for answering only for 30 minutes. All the participants must follow the
regulations established under the previous paragraph about the grading scale and policy.
Schedule or window for exams:
Exam 1, for Ch. 17, and Ch. 18: From Tuesday, August 23, to Tuesday, September 13.
Exam 2, for Ch. 19, and Ch. 20: From Tuesday, September 13, to Tuesday, October 4.
Exam 3, for Ch. 21, and Ch. 22: From Tuesday, October 4, to Tuesday, October 18.
Exam 4, for Ch. 23, and Ch. 24: From Tuesday, October 18, to Tuesday, November 1.
Exam 5, for Ch. 25, and Ch. 26: From Tuesday, November 1, to Tuesday, November 22.
Exam 6, for Ch 27, and Chs. 28 & 29:. From Tuesday, November 22, to Tuesday, December 13.
The grading scale is based upon the total of 100 points possible, The first 90 points (90 % of the final grade) will be
obtained in six on line exams, provided by the web-enhanced component of the course. Each exam has 20 multiple
choice questions which must be answered in a period of a total of 30 minutes. But the exams can be taken during a
window of about one week at your convenience. But once you decided the day and time to take the exam during that
period or window, the exam will be open for only 30 minutes. There is only one attemp, and there will be no extentions
of the deadlines established below in this syllabus. All the participants should be aware that they have to use a reliable
computer to avoid any technical difficulties during the 30 minutes of the exams. In the extreme case of a technical
problem opening the exam or during the process of answering it, the participant should inform the Professor through
the MAIL system in Blackboard, as soon as it is possible, and provide the specifics of the technical problem in maximum
detail. The blackboard system has a sophisticated way to examine those technical records and determine what exactly
happened, at what time, for how long, and what was the possible cause etc. In case that the surveillance system
corroborates the written complaint, the professor will take the final determination about the issue. I strongly
recommend to avoid this problems by taking the exams in reliable computers and places, as close as possible to
complete safety of technical problems, because in many cases the participant will have to deal with a negative decision
about the grade for such exam. One exam will represent a preliminary value of 100 points which will be averaged at the

end of the course by an automatic blackboard computed system, that will consider that average as the 90 % of the total
value of the grade for the entire course. The remaining 10 % , will come from participation and attendance to the entire
course, proportionally calculated from the attendance record, for the total possible grade of 100 points. This means that
participation and attendance makes 10 % of the final grade. An accurate record of attendance will be kept for the

be fully certified in written form, by a legally authorized person or entity, that clearly demonstrate the total
impossibility to take the exam during that specific window or period. Or proof from the E Learning office technical
personnel, that there was a technical problem with blackboard or the computer that you were using, and that the
computer sophisticated surveillance used by the E learning Office was able to corroborate the technical problem. These

Withdrawal Policy:
Any serious violation of the academic policies stated in this syllabus, could be a cause for withdrawing a participant from
this course. The last day to withdraw from this course with a "W" grade is Friday, November 4.
Here are the guidelines prepared by the office of the Dean of Student Services, about behavior and conduct in the
classroom, during the regular classes:
The purpose of this information is to assist students in understanding proper classroom
behavior. The classroom should be a learning centered environment in which faculty and
students are unhindered by disruptive behavior. Students are expected to maintain proper
decorum in the classroom. Palm Beach State College is an institution of higher education that
promotes the free exchange of ideas. However, students must adhere to the rules set forth by the
instructor. Failure to comply with classroom rules may result in dismissal from the class and/or the
College. Faculty have the authority to manage their classrooms to ensure an environment
conducive to learning. Florida Statute Title XLVIII, Chapter 1006.61 and PBSC Board Rule
6Hx-18-3.35 state:
(1) Any person who accepts the privilege extended by the laws of this
state of attendance at any public postsecondary educational institution
shall, by attending such institution, be deemed to have given his or her
consent to the policies of that institution, the State Board of
Education, and the Board of Governors regarding the State University
System, and the laws of this state. Such policies shall include
prohibition against disruptive activities at public postsecondary
educational institutions.
(2) After it has been determined that a student of a state institution of
higher learning has participated in disruptive activities, such student
may be immediately expelled from the institution for a minimum of 2
Take responsibility for your education - There is a common myth among students that
because they pay tuition they deserve to receive credit for the class. This is not true. In
fact, students pay only a portion of the cost of their education; taxpayers pay the rest.
Instructors are here to create a learning environment. Whether you learn depends on
your willingness to listen, ask appropriate questions, and do the work necessary to pass
the course. If your academic preparation from high school is weak or if you have been
out of school for a period of time, you may have to work harder and seek more help in
order to succeed.
Attend every class - You will find that students who attend every class, listen to the
instructor and take good notes will be more likely to pass (with a higher grade). If you
have an emergency or illness, contact your instructor ahead of time to let her/him know
that you will be absent. A local study showed that students who missed the first class
meeting were more likely later to withdraw or fail. Important note: if you miss a class it
is your responsibility to meet with the instructor, outside of regular class time, to
determine a plan to make up the missed work.
Get to class on time - Students who walk into the classroom late or leave early distract
other students and disrupt the learning environment.
Do not have private conversations - The noise is distracting to other students.
Turn cellular phones off - It is very distracting to hear someone’s phone go off in class.
Template Date – July 2013
Palm Beach State College
Course Syllabus – Classroom – Internet Component Class
Texting in class is prohibited.
Do not dominate other students’ opportunities to learn by asking too many
questions - It’s good to ask questions and make comments, but if you dominate the class
time with too many questions and/or comments, the instructor and other students cannot
participate in class discussions. When asking questions or making comments, keep them
related to the discussion at hand.
Respect your instructor - Openly challenging the instructor’s knowledge or authority in
the classroom is not proper. If you take issue with the instructor’s information or
instructional methods, make sure that your comments are made without confrontation or
antagonism. You may want to discuss your issues with her/him privately.
Instructors’ classroom policies, procedures and teaching styles vary - Some
instructors enforce attendance policies vigorously; other instructors are more lenient
about attendance. Assignments and classroom activities are at the prerogative of the
instructor. Each instructor has the freedom and authority to set the guidelines and
policies for their classroom (within the overall policies of the college).
Your classmates deserve your respect and support - Others may have different ideas
and opinions from yours, they may ask questions you perceive to be “stupid,” but they
deserve the same level of respect from you as you wish from them.
Come to class prepared - Students who forget common classroom supplies such as a
pencil, paper, books, test materials, etc. usually waste class time. Students who have not
completed their assigned homework many times ask questions that could have been
answered through their assignments.
Turn in your work on time - It is important to plan ahead. Students who wait until the
last minute to do their work usually make lower grades and are more likely to miss
deadlines. Study and do your assignments every day. If a problem occurs at the last
minute such as a computer malfunction, you will still be prepared.
Do not bring children to class - Children in classrooms are distracting to the instructor,
other students, and you. You need to plan ahead for child care.
When having academic difficulty seek assistance - Your instructors are willing to
assist you however, there are other ways to get help. The Student Learning Center (SLC)
has tutors available for many courses. Student Services can assist you with course
scheduling and career development. Specific courses, such as SLS1501 Strategies for
College Success, are offered to help you succeed.
If you have questions or need assistance, please make an appointment to see your academic
advisor or call 207-5340. She/he is willing to assist you so you can succeed.
