Macionis Publisher Allyn & Bacon/Prentice Hall ISBN (Current Edition) Software/ Equipment Title Author(s) Publisher ISBN Various resources available: Availability of VCR/DVD player; computer w/internet access Course Assessments Description of Possible Course Assessments (Essays, multiple choice, etc.) 1. Exams: (Objective in nature; multiple choice, fill in the blank, listing, describing, short answer essay, etc.) Instructors should construct tests that include both objective and essay formats. A scheduled midterm and final should be the minimum given the amount of the material. Students will benefit from the opportunity for additional exams or quizzes because of the sheer amount of information. Please adjust your testing methods to meet the needs of your current student population; however, please include questions on the course material as noted in the objectives and competency requirements. Because this is a writing across the curriculum course, instructors are strongly encouraged to include writing assignments that will also count toward that assessment if no other activities are being offered to satisfy the writing assessment requirement. This also supports the five core learning outcomes of the institution. 2. Class activities Instructors are strongly encouraged to make class activities a part of overall grade assessment. MCC requires Participation to be a minimum of 15% of the overall grade. Class activities that get students involved and interacting about the subject matter have proven to be a very effective tool to support the five core learning outcomes of the institution.
13 3. Research/Writing Assignments Instructors are strongly encouraged to incorporate assignments that require students to conduct academic research and writing on topics related to course competencies and objectives. Examples might include short summary papers over journal articles, problem solving or position paper on an issue presented in the text or lecture, etc. This also supports the five core learning outcomes of the institution. Major papers will be formatted in APA format to support professional style utilized in the social sciences. 4. Presentations Instructors are strongly encouraged to incorporate assignments that engage students in quantitative and/or qualitative inquiry leading to the formulation of individual and/or group oral presentations within the classroom. This supports the five core learning outcomes of the institution. Exams standardized for this course?
