Administrative Announcement
Please remember that it is a UM policy that no
food or drink be brought into the classrooms.
Signs are posted in all classrooms to this
effect. Please ask your students to observe this
policy.   This is particularly important now
because the custodial staff is severely
short-handed and it is taking them more time than
usual to clean the classrooms due to the high
level of debris that is left behind.

Examinations
  • There will be two (2) examinations and a
    comprehensive final which will cover the text,
    readings, lecture, and class discussion.
  • All examinations are essay.

11
Professional Conduct
  • One of the purposes of this and future classes is
    to prepare you for the business world, not only
    with a body of functional knowledge, but
    workplace behaviors as well.

12
Realistic Course Preview
  • What employers expect of you
  • Be on time.
  • Be prepared.
  • Do not interrupt presentations or meetings.
  • What your instructor expects of you
  • Be on time.
  • Be prepared.
  • Do not interrupt classes.

13
Realistic Course Preview
  • Profile of an unsuccessful student
  • Irregular attendance
  • Studies the day before an exam
  • Does not take notes
  • Does not read chapters before class
  • Takes advantage of office hours only at the end
    of the semester
  • Wants to discuss grades and academic performance
    after the end of the semester

14
Realistic Course Preview
  • Profile of a successful student
  • Regular attendance
  • Studies approximately two hours for each one hour
    of class
  • Takes notes on lecture and on textbook readings
  • Asks questions when he/she does not understand a
    concept

15
Realistic Course Preview
  • Grades
  • What your grades are NOT based on
  • I tried really hard.
  • I need a passing grade to graduate
  • If I dont pass my parents will kill me
  • I came every class and listened a lot
  • I learned a lot but my grades dont really
    reflect it.
  • What your grades ARE based on
  • Your performance on exams
  • Your performance on the report

16
Realistic Course Preview
  • Division of labor
  • Instructor
  • Provides the instruction
  • Prepares for classes
  • Fairly assesses knowledge retention.
  • Student
  • Learns the material
  • Prepares for classes
  • Does not violate the SOBA Academic Integrity
    Standards

17
Punctuality
  • Students are absolutely responsible for your
    attendance and being to class on time--especially
    on dates when examinations or other course
    requirements are scheduled.
  • Students arriving late for class after roll is
    taken will be counted as absent.
  • No student arriving after examinations have been
    distributed will be permitted to take the
    examination.

18
Attendance
  • Each unexcused absence (to include arriving late
    or leaving early) will result in 5 raw points
    being taken from the 25 possible points allotted
    for participation.
  • Your future employers expect you to come to work
    each day and on time, and so does your current
    instructor.

19
Examinations
  • On essay questions, please write legibly and
    coherently. I cannot give you credit for
    responses that I do not understand.
  • Bring two blue books on exam days.
  • Once a student begins the exam he/she will not be
    permitted to leave the room until the exam is
    completed.

20
Book Report
  • Read two (2) books from the reading list
    (Appendix B of the syllabus) and write a book
    report consisting of
  • (1) This first will be a brief synopsis of the
    two books and the arguments presented by each
    author(s)
  • (2) the second will consist of the students
    opinion which book made the more convincing
    argument and
  • (3) finally, what the student thought the
    authors could have done to make his or her
    arguments more convincing
  • Reports are due on November 16. No reports will
    be accepted late.

21
Make Ups
  • All make up examinations (for approved excused
    absences) will be scheduled during the Final
    Examination (December 7 at 800 a.m.) Again,
    there are no make ups for unexcused absences.

22
Extra and Partial Credit
  • Extra Credit There are no provisions for extra
    credit in this course.
  • Partial Credit In business, a wrong answer,
    regardless of how proper its calculation, will
    result in a poor/wrong decision. Therefore, no
    credit is given for wrong answers

23
Appeals
  • Appeals Two criteria are used in considering
    appeals (1) The explanation/argument must be
    logical and consistent, and (2) accurate
    knowledge of course material must be
    demonstrated. All appeals are due no later than
    the class period following the return of the
    examination in question.

24
Appeals
  • No appeals will be accepted after the beginning
    of that class period. Appeals are graded
    individually, only those students whose appeals
    are accepted will receive credit for missed
    answers.

25
Children in the Classroom
  • Children in the Classroom In recent years
    there has arisen the problem of parents bringing
    their children to lectures, and even to
    examinations. This has resulted in distractions
    to other students and ensuing complaints.

26
Academic Dishonesty
  • Academic Dishonesty and Cheating Academic
    dishonesty refers to the use of unauthorized
    books, notes, or otherwise securing help on a
    test, copying tests, assignments, reports, or
    term papers. Any student caught engaging in any
    form of academic dishonesty will receive a
    failing grade for the semester in this course--NO
    EXCEPTIONS!

27
Weather Conditions
  • Weather Conditions If Ole Miss classes are
    canceled for weather, any assignment scheduled
    for that date will be due at the beginning of the
    next class meeting thereafter. If an examination
    is scheduled on a date in which the University is
    closed, then that examination will be given on
    the next class meeting thereafter.

28
Students with Disabilities
  • Students with Disabilities Any student who
    feels that he or she needs an accommodation due
    to any disability, please make an appointment to
    discuss this matter with me during the first week
    of the semester.
