For every credit hour, students should plan to spend an average of 2-3 hours per week for course-related activities in a 15-week course. For example, a 3 credit hour course would average an average 6-9 hours per week to read/listen to the online content, participate in discussion forums, complete assignments, and study the course material. For 10 and 6-week courses, the amount of time per week will be higher so all course competencies, module outcomes, and assignments will be covered.
Aside from typical reading assignments, this course has the following (Please Note: This list is subject to change based on the discretion of the instructor facilitating this course.):
|Discussions – Individual (5 @ 15 points each)||75||7.5%|
|Discussions – Small Group (5 @ 10 points each)||50||5%|
|Practice Problems (5 @ 10 points each)||50||5%|
|Application Problems (5 @ 25 points each)||125||12.5%|
|Practical Project Portfolio Contributions (5 @ 20 points each)||100||10%|
|Quizzes (5 @ 40 points each)||200||20%|
|Tests (5 @ 100 points each)*||400*||40%|
|* Five tests are taken but the lowest score is dropped.|
