The course is comprised of thirty-six (36) lessons to be completed in sequence and completion of a final project portfolio.
Each lesson includes a video and an assigned activity to give practice with some of the skills demonstrated in the video. The completed activity will be uploaded for grading.
The final project for this course is to create a portfolio of a combination of up to 24 pages in Word and/or slides in PowerPoint. Each page/slide created is worth 3 points. The number of pages/slides in your final portfolio project will help determine your grade for this course:
Pass = minimum 6 pages/slides (18 points)
C = 6 -11 pages/slides (18-33 points)
B = 12-17 pages/slides (36-51 points)
A = 18-24 pages/slides (54-72 points)
Requirements for passing the course or a letter grade is based on points earned for participant in lessons, completion of lesson assignments, and completion of the final project.
The total possible points = 180
Course Participation = 36 Points (1 point for each lesson)
Lesson Assignments = 72 points (3 points for each lesson)
Final Project = 72 points
Points earned will be divided by the total for a percentage to determine the final grade for the course:
A = 90%-100% 162-180 total points
B = 80%-89% 144-161 total points
C = 70%-79% 126-143 total points
D = 60%-69% 108-125 total points
F = 0%-59% 0-107 points
Pass/Fail: At least 126 points; participate in all lessons, complete all assignments and complete final Portfolio project with a minimum of 6 pages
