Exams Format ­ Exams will cover information discussed in lecture, text, and any other source assigned to the  student.  Information discussed in lecture will be emphasized.   ­ There will be 4 unit exams throughout the course o Exams 2,3,and 4 will be comprehensive (containing questions from previous units) o However, each exam will focus on the unit in the course outline o Each exam will consist of 55 questions of which you will be graded on 50. Time o Lecture exams will take place during a normal class period  Time limit will not be extended for tardy students.   It is highly unlikely that permission will be granted for changing exam times due  to the large numbers of students scheduled for each exam.  Supplies ­ Students will bring a picture ID and pencil to all exams o Students will be required to present a picture ID in order to hand in their exam.  Exams  will not be accepted from students who cannot provide a picture ID.  Missed Exams ­ Accommodations will be made in instances where University sponsored activities conflict with  scheduled exams.  In most cases, students will be expected to take the exam during the 24 hours prior to the scheduled time. ­ Any student who misses a scheduled lecture exam must provide written documentation  supporting the extraordinary reason for their missing the exam. ­ If the absence is excused, the student will be required to take a remediation exam on Study Day. ­ Any student who misses an exam and fails to take the make­up exam will receive a score of 0. ­ Should a student miss more than one lecture exam due to extraordinary circumstances, the  student will receive an incomplete grade. ­ The only excused absences are those caused by University sponsored activities (approved  beforehand), significant illness requiring medical attention, or family death. o The following are not excuses for absence: oversleeping, automobile breakdowns, traffic congestion, any illness which is not severe enough to warrant a visit to Taylor Health  Center or a Physician, forgetting the date and time of the exam, fights with significant  others, friend’s illness, family vacations, spells cast by evil wizards, etc. Blackboard Page A course web page is maintained for BMS 307 on the University Blackboard system. A variety of lecture and laboratory information and assignments will be posted on Blackboard. Students will need to enroll in this page during the first week of class and should visit this site routinely throughout the semester. Enrollment instructions are available at the Missouri State Blackboard web site. This will be the main source of communication with students! If you need help setting up a blackboard account or accessing course materials please contact the computer help desk at Blackboard Quizzes Timed quizzes will be assigned and completed via the Blackboard course page. Quiz performance will be directly factored in to your final grade and are not bonus points. All quizzes will be announced via email. It is the student’s responsibility to complete these quizzes before the announced deadline. Extensions will not be given due to last minute trouble with blackboard site. If trouble is encountered please direct your questions to the blackboard help desk listed above. Lecture Case Studies This is not extra credit. All students will have an opportunity to study aspects of Anatomy in depth through case studies. Each case study will include specific questions to be addressed. Students will turn in 4 lecture case reports, one per unit, through the Safe Assignment system on Blackboard. Cases are worth 20 points each. See the Case Study Instructions on Blackboard for more information. If your submission contains blocks of text deemed to be copied from another source, the assignment will receive a 0. If you submit your assignment early, you will have enough time to revise your work and resubmit it. It takes 4-24 hours to overwrite the previous submission. No assignment will be accepted after the due date and time. Please submit early If you have questions about using Safe Assignment contact the Blackboard Help Desk 417- 836-5891 Laboratory Each student is assigned to a 2-hour laboratory session each week. The purpose of this assigned time is for the students to become familiar with the cadavers, models, and other specimens. Students should anticipate that their laboratory study will not be limited to the weekly laboratory session and should plan accordingly. All course policies are in effect during these open study periods. Laboratory instructors will outline specific laboratory policies. Cadaver Use Dissection of the human body remains the most effective laboratory mechanism to learn anatomy. Students are not required to dissect the cadaver; however there may be opportunities to participate in a dissection. It is a profound privilege to have the opportunity to learn using a human body; therefore the cadaver must be treated with respect at all times. No photographs or any other images of the cadaver are permitted. No visitors are allowed in the Anatomy laboratory. Any violation of these rules may result in a failing grade or other penalty. Public Affairs Missouri State University was granted a statewide mission in public affairs in 1995 when Senate Bill 340 was signed into law. The public affairs mission defines a primary way in which an education from Missouri State is different from that of other universities and one way by which we educate our students to imagine the future. The public affairs mission has three pillars: ethical leadership, cultural competence and community engagement. Students will be encouraged to participate in various public affairs activities throughout the semester that may be included for course credit. COURSE POLICIES All applicable Missouri State University policies (e.g. Academic Integrity, Attendance, Affirmative Action, Disabled Students, Incomplete Grades, etc.) will serve as guiding principles in this class. Please familiarize yourself with these and other policies at the Missouri State website ( In addition, please read the students’ rights and responsibilities page ( ). Attendance policy Attendance will not be taken following the first week in this course. However, any in­class assignment  missed due to an unexcused absence will have an adverse effect on your grade in this course. The  University’s attendance policy can be found .   Reasonable accommodations can be made for those students whose absence from class resulted  from: 1) participation in University­sanctioned activities and programs; 2) personal illness; or 3) family and/or other compelling circumstances. Academic integrity Missouri State University is a community of scholars committed to developing educated persons who  accept the responsibility to practice personal and academic integrity.  You are responsible for knowing  and following the university’s student honor code, Student Academic Integrity Policies and Procedures  and also available at the Reserves Desk in Meyer Library.  Any student participating in any form of  academic dishonesty will be subject to sanctions as described in this policy. Statement of nondiscrimination Missouri State University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action institution, and maintains a grievance  procedure available to any person who believes he or she has been discriminated against. At all times, it  is your right to address inquiries or concerns about possible discrimination to the Office for Institutional  Equity and Compliance, Park Central Office Building, 117 Park Central Square, Suite 111, 417­836­4252.  Other types of concerns (i.e., concerns of an academic nature) should be discussed directly with your  instructor and can also be brought to the attention of your instructor’s Department Head.   Please visit the  OED website at Statement on disability accommodation To request academic accommodations for a disability, contact the Director of the Disability Resource  Center, Carrington Hall, Room 302, 417­836­4192 or 417­836­6792 (TTY), Students are required to provide documentation of disability to the  Disability Resource Center prior to receiving accommodations. The Disability Resource Center refers  some types of accommodation requests to the Learning Diagnostic Clinic, which also provides diagnostic  testing for learning and psychological disabilities. For information about testing, contact the Director of the Learning Diagnostic Clinic, 417­836­4787, Emergency Response policy Students with disabilities impacting mobility should discuss the approved accommodations for emergency situations and additional options when applicable with the instructor. For more information go to and Shelter Information (in case of severe weather).  Building Shelter Information 1st Floor: Shelter in main North-South hallway. 2nd Floor: Shelter in main North-South hallway. Carrington Hall 3rd Floor: Shelter in main North-South hallway. 4th Floor: Evacuate to 3rd Floor using East and West stairs Evacuation Instructions (in case the building needs to be evacuated for events such as fire, gas  leak, etc.) Carrington Hall North to Plaster Student Union lower level Cell phone policy As a member of the learning community, each student has a responsibility to other students who are  members of the community.  When cell phones or pagers ring and students respond in class or leave  class to respond, it disrupts the class. Therefore, the Office of the Provost prohibits the use by students of cell phones, pagers, PDAs, or similar communication devices during scheduled classes. All such devices  must be turned off or put in a silent (vibrate) mode and ordinarily should not be taken out during class.  Given the fact that these same communication devices are an integral part of the University’s emergency  notification system, an exception to this policy would occur when numerous devices activate  simultaneously. When this occurs, students may consult their devices to determine if a university  emergency exists. If that is not the case, the devices should be immediately returned to silent mode and  put away. Other exceptions to this policy may be granted at the discretion of the instructor.. No  communication device should be available during an exam. Any such device will be confiscated  and the academic integrity policy followed if it is taken out during an exam. Dropping a class It is your responsibility to understand the University’s procedure for dropping a class. If you stop attending this class but do not follow proper procedure for dropping the class, you will receive a failing grade and will also be financially obligated to pay for the class. For information about dropping a class or withdrawing from the university, contact the Office of the Registrar at 836-5520. The policy is as follows for full-semester courses: ­ Students who drop during the first week will receive no grade. ­ Students who drop between week 2 and 12, will automatically receive a W. ­ After the end of the 12 th week students may not drop a class, will appear on grade rosters, and must be graded. A W grade will not be an option at that point. An appropriate letter grade must be assigned. An “I” (incomplete) grade may only be assigned if a significant portion of the course has been completed and the instructor of the course has developed a plan for how the remaining work must be completed. See the full policy at Tentative Course Outline and Reading List All page numbers for assigned readings are referenced from the Gray’s Basic Anatomy, Drake 1 Edition. All Dates are subject to change and will be announced by the course instructor. Lab syllabus and schedule is posted on blackboard and will be discussed in labs.
