Faulkner University


Student Responsibilities: Students are expected to attend class regularly and be punctual. Two tardies count as one absence. Leaving class early counts as a tardy.

All essays are due on the assigned dates. After five days, work will not be accepted and a zero will be assigned. There will be a five point penalty for each day late up to five days.

All readings must be read before coming to class on the day scheduled for discussion of this reading. Lack of participation by members of the class will result in pop quizzes.


You must turn in all major assignments to pass this class!

Grades on assignments will be determined according to the following criteria:

  • A (90-100% of all available points) The document is superior. It exceeds all the objectives of the assignment. The information is ethical, sophisticated, thorough, and ideally suited for the audience. The style is clear and appropriate to the subject, purpose, and audience. The organization and design of the document make the information understandable, accessible, and usable. The mechanics and grammar are correct.
  • B (80-89% of all available points) The document is good. It meets the objectives of the assignment, but requires minor improvements or reveals easily correctable errors in organization, style, design, grammar, or mechanics.
  • C (70-79% of all available points) The document is adequate. It omits useful information or requires significant improvement in organization, style, design, grammar, or mechanics. It may be formally correct but superficial in its discussion.
  • D (60-69% of all available points) The document is disappointing. It meets some of the objectives of the assignment but ignores others; the discussion is inadequately developed, omits important information, or displays numerous or major errors in organization, style, design, grammar, or mechanics.
  • F (0-59% of all available points) The document is unsatisfactory. It omits critical information, does something other than the assignment required, or displays major or excessive errors in organization, style, design, grammar, or mechanics.

Projects submitted more than 5 days after the due date will not be accepted for a grade (they will receive a zero).

At the end of the course, the sum of the points earned by all assignments determines your grade according to the following:

  • A: 900-1000 total points
  • B: 800-899 total points
  • C: 700-799 total points
  • D: 600-699 total points
  • F: 0-599 total points
