Currently (subject to change) these are the general requirements for completing the course:
Three Assignments specific to political news events.
Three Quizzes; all three quizzes are ‘objective’ format. The three quizzes are linked to web based assignments and also are administered within a timed environment. .
Three exams; each having an objective [m/c : t/f : short answer and subjective essay]. The primary ‘testing’ material is generated from two textbooks, related web assignments and several Media Presentations. Exams are administered within a timed environment.
Each exam period also has a required, brief Post and Reply (P&R) Forum-discussion activity that will further reinforce the focus points of the subject matter.
Incentive Projects [IP] (Bonus); Ten separate (optional) assignments [students may do 9 of the 10]; varied in subject matter and up to the student to choose all, some or none.
