EXAMS, ASSIGNMENTS AND GRADES:
There will be 4 lecture exams, each worth 50 points (50 questions) for a total of 200 points. All exams are online and taken at the McGraw-Hill Connect site. Exams open at 12 am on Thursday and close at 11:59 pm on Saturday for the dates given above. Lecture exams consist of multiple choice and true/false questions. A 10% deduction per day will be taken away from your exam scores for any exams taken and submitted after the due date. No late submissions once the semester is over. No other make-up opportunities exist. Exams cover the same material that you will be studying in the LearnSmart chapter questions completed for homework and described below. Exams are not comprehensive.
You will be give one chance to take each exam and a time limit of 50 minutes. All exams must be taken during the dates listed on the Connect homepage. To prevent any computer problems during the exams, try the “Practice Exam,” worth zero points, to make sure the format works with your computer. Any technical problems you experience during exams require that you immediately contact McGraw Hill Tech support (info at the end of this syllabus) AND your instructor. When you are ready to take your exam, simply click on it and click “Begin.” Note that answers are automatically saved as you click your answer. However, you can return to any question, and change the answer, as long as you have not yet submitted it and have not yet run out of time. The menu to navigate through the questions is at the bottom of your screen. As you finish the last question and you are done, click submit. Note: Depending on your computer settings, you may need to scroll down to see ALL of the multiple choice answers.
Tips for success on the exams: Completing the LearnSmart homework questions AND glancing at my learning objectives for each exam from my homepage at http://sites.msudenver.edu/haysc. (Note, look for a link to the answers to those lecture objectives at the bottom of my “sites” course homepage at this site too.)
You may see your exam score through “RESULTS” from your Connect homepage.
HOMEWORK: LEARNSMART CHAPTER QUESTIONS:
You will be required to complete a set of LearnSmart chapter questions from the Connect site for EACH chapter that is covered in this course. The maximum points you can earn for completing these modules is 400 total points for the entire course. Exam One covers chapters 1, 2,3,4,6,7,8 and the corresponding homework questions for these chapters will be 100 points if you complete all of the questions. Yes, your score is based on COMPLETION, not whether or not you got the questions right. Then, Exam Two covers chapters 9,10 and the corresponding homework questions for these chapters will also be 100 points if you complete all of the questions… and so on through the Exam Three and Four chapters. Note that there are due dates for these LearnSmart homework assignments. If you don’t complete a homework chapter by the due date, a score will automatically be recorded for your work up until the due date. Since you have access to the LearnSmart homework questions from the first day of class, there are no due date extensions for the homework assignments (start early!)
You can access the LearnSmart homework questions by clicking the Smart Book arrow on the right of each listed homework assignment and then click “Begin.” This brings you to the correct e-book chapter and then you should start with reading the chapter, especially the highlighted sections. (Note: The yellow highlights mean you need to focus on the material and blue highlights are meant for just perusing the major concepts. If the highlights annoy you, you can access the e-text directly from the menu on your homepage and avoid the highlighting.) Whenever you feel ready, go to Questions. Each question requires you to click on the answer as well as your confidence level for your answer. If, at anytime you need to switch back to your textbook, just click on the Reading icon. You can then return to the Questions at anytime.
You will have the full amount of points with 100% completion of each chapter because your grade is based on completion, not the number of questions you get right. However, if you miss a question, the system will ask you that question again and again, to make sure you know it. Please note, that these chapter questions are time-consuming and should not be done at the last minute! You may do the LearnSmart homework questions more, even if you have 100% completion, as this completion percent will not change. You do this by clicking on “recharge” from the Assignments page. For more details, read the FAQs below.
You must attend traditional on-campus laboratories each week. You must attend traditional on-campus laboratories each week. There will be 3 lab exams each worth 50 points plus a review-sheet assignment (consisting of 2 review sheets) worth 20 points (170 total). Lab exams will consist of short answer and identification questions. The lab, therefore, will be worth about 1/4 of your course grade.
The review sheet assignment consists of completing 1. the Review Sheet in your Marieb Laboratory Manual “Exercise 13 Review Sheet: Gross Anatomy of the Muscular System” PLUS 2. the review sheet on Skeletal Muscle Physiology found here. (Skeletal Muscle Review Sheet) You may do these review sheets at home. The two review exercises are due on your very next lab period when we dissect the brain. You may hand these in to me during lab, or scan/photograph them and submit them electronically. You will lose 5 points per day that they are submitted late. 10 points are possible for complete and accurate answers of each review exercise for a total of 20 points.
Make up exams may be given for extenuating circumstances as long as your lab instructor is notified BEFORE the lab exam begins. Make up lab exams will be primarily a one-on-one identification of lab specimens.
The total number of points possible for the course is 770. Letter grades will be assigned on a percentage basis, as follows:
|F||Fewer than 462|
a) The student assumes certain obligations of performance and behavior while attending MSU Denver. Refer to the student standards of conduct in your Student Handbook.
b) Cheating of any sort will result in immediate expulsion with a grade of F.

FAQs for Connect:
May I post messages on McGraw Hill Connect? Only your instructor may post messages, if you need to get a message to me, use my email.
What are my grades on LearnSmart homework questions and how much do I have left to complete? You will only receive a grade (points) on the LearnSmart homework questions if, either you complete the entire chapter, OR the due date has passed. The assignments homepage shows the due date for all LearnSmart homework chapter questions as well as the dates during which you must take the four exams. The “Results” tab on your left shows your points/percentage only if you have finished 100% of the chapter questions. (You may need to log out and then log back in to update the results page.) You can find out how far you are in any non-completed (“in progress”) LearnSmart homework assignments by looking at the progress bar. Once you have completed a chapter you will have a “see report” icon that shows your grade.
Can I still practice on the homework questions even if I have already completed that chapter? Yes! Just click on “recharge” as from the SB arrow. This won’t affect the fact that you already have 100% completion.
I have completed all chapter questions and now it says recharge. Do I have to do that? No. Periodically, the computer system will have you repeat some of the questions as a refresher. This is optional.
How do I exit the Questions or E Book? Just click on the Exit Assignment whenever you are done reading or answering questions and then you can sign out.
How do I continue working on the LearnSmart chapter questions even though the computer thinks I should take a break? You can re-enter the questions at any time from the course assignments homepage.
These modules are taking SO LONG to complete, how can I speed them up?Read your BOOK!! The LearnSmart homework system remediates you based on the type and number of questions you miss. The more you get correct, the quicker you will be done. So, obviously looking at the corresponding chapter on the eBook or your textbook BEFORE you start the questions will increase your success in the questions and get you out of the quicker. If you are fed up with any certain chapter questions, you may go on and accept the grade you get once the due date has passed, but incomplete modules will not receive a 100%.
The textbook covers so much information. How do I know what material is most important to study for the exams?
