Class Materials: Academic Planner Notebook paper Pen or Pencil A textbook is not required for this class. PSY 191 Policies: Attendance: Students are expected to attend all class meetings. However, if a student needs to miss a class, they will need to email me and inform me that they are missing class along with documentation which will make it an excused absence. If no documentation is presented, then the student will have an unexcused absence. Students are only allowed to have two unexcused absences. If a student has two unexcused absences, then they will fail the class unless they withdrawal from the class. If I need to cancel class for any reason, I will contact everyone via email. If you come to class and I have not arrived within fifteen minutes, assume that class has been canceled. Grading: All assignments will be graded based on a point system. Students will also lose points for any unexcused absences. 5 points will be taken away for two absences. If a student believes that there is an error with their grade, they can email me or talk to me after a class session and I will be more than happy to look at the issue with them. Students will be able to look at their grades on blackboard. No late assignments will be accepted for this class. Each assignment will be due at 10:30 A.M of the due date to blackboard unless instructed otherwise. Cell Phones and Portable Computers: All of the student’s cell phones should be put on silent and tucked away during class. If a student is expecting an important phone call, they may have their phone on their desk and take the phone call outside in the hallway. If this becomes a habit, the student will be talked to about this issue. If the issue is not resolved, then the student will be counted as absent. Students are more than welcome to use tablets and laptops during class to take notes. If they are being used to nonclass related activities, then the student will be asked to put away the distraction. Academic Integrity: Academic honesty is expected of all students in all examinations, papers, laboratory work, academic transactions and records. The possible sanctions include, but are not limited to, appropriate grade penalties, course failure (indicated on the transcript as a grade of E), course failure due to academic dishonesty (indicated on the transcript as a grade of XE), loss of registration privileges, disqualification and dismissal. For more information, see http://provost.asu.edu/academicintegrity. Establishing Eligibility for Disability Accommodations: Students who feel they will need disability accommodations in this class but have not registered with the Disability Resource Center (DRC) should contact DRC immediately. The DRC Tempe office is located on the first floor of the Matthews Center Building. DRC staff can also be reached at: (480) 9651234 (V) or (480) 9659000 (TTY). For additional information, visit: www.asu.edu/studentaffairs/ed/drc. Expected classroom behavior: Students should be arriving on time. Being late once or twice during the semester is understandable. However, if it becomes a habit, the student will be talked to in order to try to find a solution where the student can arrive on time. Your phones should always be on silent mode whenever in class. If a student needs to take an important phone call, they may do so in the hallway outside of the classroom. If this becomes a habit, then the student will be marked absent whenever this occurs after the student has been talked to. Any disruptive behavior such as ringing cell phones, listening to your music player, text messaging, constant talking, eating food noisily, or reading a book while class is going on will not be tolerated. Laptops (unless used for note taking), cell phones, music players, ect. are strictly prohibited during class. Policy against threatening behavior: All incidents and allegations of violent or threatening conduct by an ASU student (whether onor off campus) must be reported to the ASU Police Department (ASU PD) and the Office of the Dean of Students. If either office determines that the behavior poses or has posed a serious threat to personal safety or to the welfare of the campus, the student will not be permitted to return to campus or reside in any ASU residence hall until an appropriate threat assessment has been completed and, if necessary, conditions for return are imposed. ASU PD, the Office of the Dean of Students, and other appropriate offices will coordinate the assessment in light of the relevant circumstances.
