Course Topics & Grading METHODS OF INSTRUCTION This course uses Blackboard™ (BB) for the facilitation of communications between faculty and students, submission of assignments, and posting of grades. The course site can be accessed at http://my.asu.edu or http://myasucourses.asu.edu. You are expected to log into BB regularly and are responsible for all the information posted there. LaunchPad is an online resource created by the textbook company. You are required to have access to LaunchPad for this class. All quizzes will be administered via LaunchPad. In addition, students are encouraged to access site to review the etext, concept videos, and the LearningCurve tool to help prepare for exams. Please use your campus email as your user name when registering for your NTR 100 Fall 2016 1 LaunchPad access. In addition, use your ASURITE id when you register. This will ensure that I am easily able to incorporate your grades from LaunchPad into BB. I am not able to provide tech support for LaunchPad. If you need tech support, please call them directly at 18009366899 or you can live chat 24hrs a day from your log in screen. According to LaunchPad phone support has very short wait times and they recommend trying this option first. Finally, tech issues are reported to me (although I would recommend saving your case number etc just in case). ATTENDANCE & PARTICIPATION Attendance, including arriving on time, and participating in class are key factors for success in this course. Attendance will be kept via a sign in sheet at the beginning on class. Only official absences recognized by Arizona State University will be counted as excused; these include religious observances and University Sanctioned activities. It is the student’s responsibility to consult with the instructor regarding excused absences. Students may only sign for their name. Only students whose absences are excused will be allowed to makeup exams and assignments. Student’s with excused absences will not have to use their makeup opportunity. Please note, a doctor’s note does not excuse an absence. Students are responsible for obtaining handouts and information covered in class. GENERAL COURSE REQUIREMENTS Blackboard will be used for announcements, assignments, etc. Check it regularly! An outline of the notes will be provided on Blackboard. All assignments must be typed, unless otherwise specified, and will be graded for proper writing skills. Points will be lost for poor grammar, spelling and punctuation. All assignments and chapter quizzes will be submitted online prior to the start of class or at the beginning of class if instructed to submit the assignment/quiz in class. Late policy: All work must be completed by the due date; late work is not permitted. The instructor is not obligated to grant due date extensions but may consider doing so when informed prior to the due date and only under extenuating circumstances. Documentation may be required to verify an extenuating circumstance such as hospitalization. Accommodations will be made AHEAD of the due date for religious holidays and ASU athletic participation. CLASSROOM REQUIREMENTS This class is only 1 hour and 15 minutes long. Therefore, please reserve getting up and leaving the room at other times for emergencies only. It is a disruption for both the instructor and the other students. Please advise the instructor if you are taping/recording lectures or class activities prior to doing so. Laptops and tablets are to be used for class purposes only. Looking at nonclass related material is considered disruptive and subject to disciplinary action. The following behaviors are not permitted in the classroom. Students will receive a verbal warning if any of the following behaviors are observed during the class period. If the behavior continues, the student will be asked to leave class and will lose any points available for that class period. o Using a cell phone, including talking, texting or other uses of the phone during class time. o Using any electronic device for nonclass related purposes. o Sleeping in class. o Working on or studying for other course work NTR 100 Fall 2016 2 o Excessive talking SUMMARY OF ASSIGNMENTS QUIZZES Chapter quizzes are designed to prepare students for the upcoming course content. Quizzes may include information from the course textbook, supplemental PowerPoint presentations and supplemental readings (including articles and online content). A total of 15 quizzes will be completed this semester; each quiz will be due at the start of the new content. Quizzes will be administered online via LaunchPad and are due by the start of class. Due dates for quizzes will be adjusted as needed. EXAMS There will be a total of five exams, four Midterm exams and cumulative Final Exam, each worth 100 points. Students who are content with their grade after the fourth test do not have to take the final exam; however, if a student wishes to improve their grade, they may take the final exam. The final exam score will take the place of the lowest midterm exam score. Whether the final exam is completed or not, only four exams scores will be counted as part of the final grade. All exams will be administered during our regularly scheduled class time and will consist of a combination of scantron/multiple choice and short answers questions. Students are expected to bring a pencil and a calculator to class on exam days. Under no circumstances will cell phones be allowed as a calculator for an exam. Students are expected to uphold ASU’s academic integrity standards when completing the exam. Any student who violates ASU’s academic integrity standards on the exam will receive a score of zero for the exam. It is the student’s responsibility to be prepared for exams. Exams must be taken on the assigned date and time. Makeup exams are only allowed under special circumstances and with prior approval from the instructor. APPLICATION DAYS Application days are designed to provide an opportunity for students to apply the information discussed in class. These activities will allow students a more indepth learning opportunity. Students will work in groups on application activities and participation points will be received for each application day. Students are strongly advised to attend and participate on these days as exam questions will be pulled from the activities completed in class. MINI DIET ANALYSIS PROJECT A major aspect of any nutrition class is to examine your own diet and its nutritional adequacy. This assignment involves keeping a 2day diet record, entering recorded information utilizing a computer program and, most importantly, analyzing the results. ASSIGNMENTS SUBMITTED VIA BLACKBOARD Format: Assignments submitted through Blackboard must be typed; the format must be a Word document (.doc/.docx) or a PDF file (.pdf). Software such as Works or Pages is not compatible. Unless otherwise specified, assignments must be typed using 12point Times New Roman or Ariel font and NTR 100 Fall 2016 3 doublespaced. Assignments submitted to Blackboard that are handwritten are not accepted and will receive zero (0) points. It is important to submit assignments on time. Computer issues are not a sufficient reason to expect an extension on an assignment. These reasons include: “I don’t have a computer,” “my computer had a virus,” “My internet is not working,” etc. It is recommended that you have a backup in the event of an unforeseen computer issue. You may access any of the computers on ASU’s campus. Plan on saving your files of the assignments and keep them throughout the entire semester. Consider using an online file storage system such as Dropbox.com, Google Drive, or store files on your computer. MAKEUP ASSIGNMENT Each student is allowed ONE opportunity to makeup an application day. This is NOT a free pass! Students wishing to take advantage of this opportunity are still expected to complete missed work, but they will be provided an additional two days to complete the activity. Time: Must be used within two days of missing an application day. Expires: Thursday, November 10, 2016 by 5 p.m. Usage: Please notify me that you would like to use your one makeup opportunity within two days of the application day. Number: Each student only gets one. Do not expect to be allowed another makeup opportunity. This is nontransferable to other courses. Eligible: You may only makeup one of the application days. Ineligible: You may not makeup the mini diet analysis project, chapter quizzes or exams. POINTS & ASSIGNMENTS: NOTE: Students have seven calendar days to submit written justification to challenge a grade; if a written justification is not submitted within this timeframe, challenges to grades will not be considered. Syllabus Quiz 15 points Attendance 25 points Application Participation 70 points (7 days at 10 points each) Mini Diet Analysis Project 90 points total Reports due 9/13 10 points Project due 10/27 80 points Chapter Quizzes 90 points (6 at 15 points each) Learning Curve 70 points (14 at 5 points each) Exams 400 points (5 at 100 points each, lowest midterm exam dropped if final exam completed) Total 760 points GRADING SCALE Letter Grade Percentage Points A+ 99100 752760 A 9098 684751 B 8089 608683 C 7079 532607 D 6069 456531 NTR 100 Fall 2016 4 E <60 ≤455 FINAL GRADES Final grades are based on points earned, not rounded percentages. All students begin the semester with a letter grade of A. The requirements for the semester have been explained in the syllabus; therefore, it is up to the student to maintain their desired grade for the course. With the exception of an A+, no other letter grades will receive a plus or minus designation. Please do not ask the instructor for a B+, C+, etc. The following requests to improve one’s grade are not acceptable: o Any requests for extra credit or ‘a few extra points’ o Redoing an assignment o Retaking an exam or quiz o Making up an assignment, application day, quiz or exam Student’s requesting any of the above, or anything along these lines, will not receive a personalized response and will instead be referred to this portion of the syllabus. Please consider what is fair to the class as a whole. It is unfair to ask the instructor for help improving one’s grade and, as an instructor, it would be unfair to the class if I allowed certain students additional opportunities. GRADING PROCEDURE Grades reflect your performance on assignments and adherence to deadlines. Graded assignments will be available within 7 days of the due date via the Gradebook.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY WEBINAR AND QUIZ NTR 100 Fall 2016 6 In order to support you in your academic success while providing you with appropriate writing tools and resources, all students enrolled in a NTR/HSC class are required to view/listen to a webinar and complete a multiplechoice/essayformat quiz on Academic Integrity. Students are expected to complete this online training annually and must submit proof of completion of the webinar to each NTR/HSC class instructor. To provide proof of understanding of the Academic Integrity policy, you must submit a screen shot of your quiz results to Blackboard. This documentation provides proof of understanding of ASU’s Academic Integrity policies and must be submitted to your instructor before the due date of your first assignment. There are no points associated with this quiz, but it is a mandatory requirement in each NTR/HSC class. If you have already completed this quiz for a different course, you do not need to take the quiz again. Please upload the same screenshot you already used. COURSE TIME COMMITMENT This threecredit course requires approximately 135 hours of work. Please expect to spend around 15 hours each week preparing for and actively participating in this course. Attendance: You are required to log onto the course, to check course announcements, and to check your ASU email daily. LATE OR MISSED ASSIGNMENTS Late work will not be accepted. Students have one opportunity to make up a missed application activity (see above for more details). Notify the instructor BEFORE an assignment is due if an urgent situation arises and the assignment will not be submitted on time. Published assignment due dates (Arizona Mountain Standard time) are firm. Please follow the appropriate University policies to request an accommodation for religious practices or to accommodate a missed assignment due to Universitysanctioned activities. Incomplete Grades: The grade of “I” (Incomplete) can only be given by an instructor when a student, who is doing otherwise acceptable work, is unable to complete a course (e.g., final exam or term paper) because of illness or other conditions beyond the student’s control. Unfinished work must be completed with the same instructor except under extenuating circumstances. The student has one calendar year from the date the mark of “I” is recorded to complete the course. Please refer to the Academic Record Forms section for the Incomplete Grade Request form, which is available in both Word and as a PDF https://students.asu.edu/forms/incompletegraderequest . The form must be completed by the student, signed by the student, the instructor, and the department chair or school director. Extra Credit: No extra credit opportunities will be given. No makeup quizzes will be given except under documented emergency circumstances or when written advance notice is given during the first two weeks of the semester (such as with religious holidays and ASU athletic team events). In the event of an emergency (such as hospitalization) the student will be required to provide specific written documentation, identifying the dates the student was unable to participate in the course (e.g., a doctor’s note written on professional letterhead). NTR 100 Fall 2016 7 If you have a death in the family please contact the instructor to make arrangements. Please note that documentation of the death in the family must be provided (e.g., a funeral announcement, obituary, etc. Facebook memorium pages will not be accepted).

STUDENT CONDUCT AND ACADEMIC INTEGRITY Student Conduct: ASU expects and requires its students to act with honesty, integrity, and respect. Students are required to adhere to the behavior standards listed in Arizona Board of Regents Policy Manual Chapter V – Campus and Student Affairs Part C: Code of Conduct. Required behavior standards are listed in the Student Code of Conduct and Student Disciplinary Procedures, Computer, Internet, and Electronic Communications policy, and outlined by the Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities. Anyone in violation of these policies is subject to sanctions. Students are entitled to receive instruction free from interference by other members of the class. An instructor may withdraw a student from the course when the student's behavior disrupts the educational process per Instructor Withdrawal of a Student for Disruptive Classroom Behavior. Signing an attendance sheet for another student is also considered a violation of academic integrity. Appropriate online behavior (also known as netiquette) is defined by the instructor and includes keeping course discussion posts focused on the assigned topics. Students must maintain a cordial atmosphere and use tact in expressing differences of opinion. Inappropriate discussion board posts may be deleted by the instructor. The Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities accepts incident reports from students, faculty, staff, or other persons who believe that a student or a student organization may have violated the Student Code of Conduct. NTR 100 Fall 2016 8 Academic Integrity: The highest standards of academic integrity are expected of all students. The failure of any student to meet these standards may result in suspension or expulsion from the university. Violations of academic integrity include, but are not limited to, cheating, fabrication, tampering and plagiarism. Signing an attendance sheet for another student is also considered a violation of academic integrity. Please refer to the ASU Student Academic Integrity Policy. Sanctions: http://provost.asu.edu/academicintegrity/policy/Sanctions An instructor, academic supervisor, or committee responsible for evaluation may impose any of the following sanctions for academic dishonesty: Reduced or failing grade for assignment, Reduced or failing grade for course, or Reduced, failing grade, or no credit for other academic evaluation (e.g., clinical training, comprehensive exam, thesis, dissertation). Within 10 days after an instructorimposed sanction is assigned, the student may appeal the sanction to the Dean or Director. Additionally, an instructor, academic supervisor, or committee responsible for academic evaluation may recommend other or additional sanctions to the Dean or Director, including assignment of the grade of XE and withdrawal of credit for a previously accepted course or requirement. Title IX: Title IX is a federal law that provides that no person be excluded on the basis of sex from participation in, be denied benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity. Both Title IX and university policy make clear that sexual violence and harassment based on sex is prohibited. An individual who believes they have been subjected to sexual violence or harassed on the basis of sex can seek support, including counseling and academic support, from the university. If you or someone you know has been harassed on the basis of sex or sexually assaulted, you can find information and resources at http://sexualviolenceprevention.asu.edu/faqs/students Note that, as a mandated reporter, I am obligated to report any information I become aware of regarding alleged acts of sexual discrimination, including sexual violence and dating violence. ASU Counseling Services, https://eoss.asu.edu/counseling, is available if you wish to make a confidential disclosure or discuss privately. PROHIBITION OF COMMERCIAL NOTE TAKING SERVICES In accordance with ACD 30406 Commercial Note Taking Services, written permission must be secured from the official instructor of the class in order to sell the instructor's oral communication in the form of notes. Notes must have the note taker’s name as well as the instructor's name, the course number, and the date. COURSE EVALUATION Students are expected to complete the course evaluation. The feedback provides valuable information to the instructor and the college and is used to improve student learning. Students are notified when the online evaluation form is available. SYLLABUS DISCLAIMER The syllabus is a statement of intent and serves as an implicit agreement between the instructor and the student.
