EVALUATION REQUIREMENTS: The components may differ because the instructional delivery and evaluation methodology of on-ground and online require different assessment protocols for student outcomes to be effectively evaluated. The percentages listed below reflect evaluation and assessment methods appropriate for on-ground and online delivery of this course. Students can expect ten (10) hours of instructional engagement for every one (1) quarter credit hour of a course. Instructional engagement activities include lectures, presentations, discussions, group-work, and other activities that would normally occur during class time. Instructional engagement activities may occur in a face-to-face meeting or in the e-classroom.
In addition to instructional engagement, students can expect to complete at least twenty (20) hours of outside work for every one (1) quarter credit hour of a course. Outside work includes preparing for and completing readings and assignments. Such outside work also includes, but is not limited to, all research associated with completing assignments, work with others to complete a group project, participation in tutorials, labs, simulations, and other electronic activities that are not a part of the instructional engagement, as well as any activities related to preparation for instructional engagement.
Other academic work leading to the awarding of credit hours requires at least an equivalent amount of work as listed in the paragraph above and shall be applied to other academic activities as established by the institution, including laboratory work, internships, practica, and studio work. For example, one quarter credit hour is also equivalent to at least 20 hours of lab work, 30 hours of externship or clinical practicum, or a combination of the equivalencies.

ALL Learning Outcome Assessment assignments are required components of this course and may not be deleted nor modified in any way. All professors teaching this course must assign all the assignments listed. The Learning Outcome Assignment is a substantive assessment intended to measure student performance against selected course outcomes (CO) and/or program outcomes within a course. Learning Outcome Assessment assignments are completed by all students across all South University campuses and delivery formats without exception. Each Learning Outcome Assessment assignment will typically contribute to a significant portion of the overall course grade but is assessed separately by faculty using the rubric designed for that assessment. The assessment task and grading task are two separate activities built into the eCompanion/eCollege grade book.Learning Outcome Assessments are not intended to assess students on every topic covered in the course, but rather on the course outcomes and/or program outcomes that have been defined by program/discipline area program owners as key.
