Major Assignments/Projects and Method for Calculating the Final Grade:
The final course grade is determined as follows:
Lecture Exam Average (5 exams)—50% Lab Exam Average (4 exams)—25% Comprehensive Final Exam—10% WileyPLUS Assignments (study questions, activities)—15%
Academic Misconduct Policy: Plagiarism, cheating, and other forms of academic dishonesty are prohibited. Students guilty of academic misconduct, either directly or indirectly, through participation or assistance, are immediately responsible to the instructor of the class. Based on their professional judgment, instructors have the authority to impose the following academic sanctions: (a) require the student to repeat the assignment for full or partial credit; (b) assign a zero, an F, or any other grade appropriate for the assignment or examination; (c) assign an F for the course. In addition, disciplinary sanctions may be imposed through the regular institutional procedures. For more information, see MSCC Policy 3:02:00:03.
Classroom Misconduct Policy: The instructor has the primary responsibility for maintenance of academic integrity and controlling classroom behavior, and can order temporary removal or exclusion from the classroom of any student engaged in disruptive conduct or conduct that violates the general rules and regulations of the institution for each class session during which the conduct occurs. Extended or permanent exclusion from the classroom, beyond the session in which the conduct occurred, or further disciplinary action can be effected only through appropriate procedures of the institution.
Disruptive behavior in the classroom may be defined as, but not limited to, behavior that obstructs or disrupts the learning environment (e.g., offensive language, harassment of students and professors, repeated outbursts from a student which disrupt the flow of instruction or prevent concentration on the subject taught, failure to cooperate in maintaining classroom decorum, etc.), text messaging, and the continued use of any electronic or other noise or light emitting device which disturbs others (e.g., disturbing noises from beepers, cell phones, palm pilots, lap-top computers, games, etc.). For more information, see MSCC Policy 3:02:00:03.
Class Cancellation Policy: If class is cancelled for any reason, you will be notified via our D2L page and will be told there how to prepare for the next class period. Students are advised to take advantage of the Motlow Rave system in order to receive text messages when classes are canceled campus-wide. For more information, see https://www.getrave.com/login/mscc.
Emergency Procedures Policy:
In case of a medical emergency we will immediately dial 9-911 and report the nature of the medical emergency to emergency response personnel. We will try to stay with the person(s) in need and maintain a calm atmosphere. We will talk to the person as much as possible until response personnel arrive on campus, and we will have someone go outside to meet emergency personnel and direct them to the appropriate location.
In the event of an emergency (drill or actual), a signal will be sent. Based on that signal,
students will follow the procedures below for that specific type of emergency:
Loud warbling sound throughout Building (FIRE) Collect purses and coats and proceed immediately out of your room and exit through the closest emergency exit. Proceed to the Designated Assembly Area closing windows and doors as you exit. Remain there until the "All Clear" signal is given by an Emergency Management Team member. (Instructors—Provide your Designated Assembly Area and its location to students)
Classroom Locked-door Policy:
In order to adhere to MSCC Emergency Preparedness Policy and to facilitate effective classroom management, the classroom door will remain closed and locked for the duration of the class period.
Makeup Exams: Failure to take an exam within the designated time period will result in a grade of zero for that exam. It is the responsibility of the student to keep track of all exam dates and have a backup plan in case of technical issues. A student should not assume that he/she is automatically allowed to make up a missed exam. There are only certain situations in which a student may be given a make-up exam (examples--physician-documented illness or hospitalization, documented death of immediate family member), and generally only one exam can be made up per semester. In addition, the instructor MUST be notified within 48 hours of the ending time and date of the exam by phone, voice mail, or email as to the circumstances surrounding the missed exam. Based on the circumstances, the instructor will determine if a makeup exam will be given.
Class Participation: Active participation in the class is expected of all students.
Students are expected to regularly login to the course (several times a week), check and respond to email, and read and reply to discussion postings. In addition, students should utilize the Anatomy & Physiology Revealed lab software and supplemental practice activities (WileyPLUS) as often as possible. Course activity will be monitored.
Anatomy and Physiology is a course in which repetition and practice are critical.

Schedule of Assignments:
The content covered in a hybrid Anatomy and Physiology course is the same as that covered in a traditional face-to-face course. Students should expect to spend a significant amount of time on
course-related study outside of the regularly scheduled class meetings as indicated below:
This course is subdivided into units or “modules,” each covering a particular human body system. Assignments include text readings, study questions and interactive activities assigned within WileyPLUS, and a variety of supplemental exercises designed to reinforce and assist with understanding of the material. The laboratory portion of the course involves use of Anatomy & Physiology Revealed activities and diagrams from the textbook to help students learn the location and special features of anatomical structures listed on “lab checklists” for each body system.
Through lecture and lab experiences, students should realize the interrelated nature of anatomy and physiology—structure relates to function. At the end of each module, students will generally take both a lab and lecture exam. A comprehensive final exam will be given at the conclusion of the course.
