Academic Honesty

General:

Students are responsible for making themselves aware of and understanding the University policies and procedures that pertain to Academic Honesty. These policies include cheating, fabrication, falsification and forgery, multiple submission, plagiarism, complicity and computer misuse. The academic policies addressing Student Rights and Responsibilities can be found in the Undergraduate Catalog at [http://catalog.wmich.edu/index.php] and the Graduate Catalog at [http://catalog.wmich.edu/index.php]. If there is reason to believe you have been involved in academic dishonesty, you will be referred to the Office of Student Conduct. You will be given the opportunity to review the charge(s) and if you believe you are not responsible, you will have the opportunity for a hearing. You should consult with your instructor if you are uncertain about an issue of academic honesty prior to the submission of an assignment or test.

Students and instructors are responsible for making themselves aware of and abiding by the “Western Michigan University Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment and Violence, Intimate Partner Violence, and Stalking Policy and Procedures” related to prohibited sexual misconduct under Title IX, the Clery Act and the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and Campus Safe. Under this policy, responsible employees (including instructors) are required to report claims of sexual misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator or designee (located in the Office of Institutional Equity). Responsible employees are not confidential resources. For a complete list of resources and more information about the policy see www.wmich.edu/sexualmisconduct.

In addition, students are encouraged to access the Code of Conduct, as well as resources and general academic policies on such issues as diversity, religious observance, and student disabilities:

Plagiarism:

For an in-depth exploration of plagiarism, see http://lib.usm.edu/plagiarism_tutorial.html

Grading Basis

  1. Examinations (2 in-semester exams plus final): 70%
    Final counts as two in-semester exams.
    Due to the class size requests for examination rescheduling cannot be approved.
  2. Homework and Quizzes (announced or unannounced): 10%
  3. Laboratory:  20%
    Students earning less than 60% in the lab will be assigned an ‘E’.

OUTSTANDING WORK might earn extra credit.  The first student to report an error in any material prepared by the course instructor will earn extra credit.  The course grading scale is:

 

Scale: 0-49 E | 50-54 D | 55-59 DC | 60-64 C | 65-69 CB | 70-74 B | 75-79 BA | 80-100 A |

Numeric scores are rounded to the nearest integer.

A grade of ‘X’ will be assigned to any student that earns an ‘E’ and does not complete all examinations including the final.

A midterm grade, if assigned, serves only as an indication of your progress in the course, and should not be considered as a predictor of your final grade.

Testing Accommodations:  If you have been approved for alternative testing, you must arrange to take your exams at the Disability Services for Students testing facility.  Note that the exam dates are available in this syllabus.

Grade Appeals:  If you have a question regarding grading of any lecture or laboratory materials (e.g. exam problems, homework problems, laboratory notebooks, laboratory reports, etc.), see Dr. Miller within FIVE business days of receiving the grade for the assignment in question.  If you disagree with the assessment of that assignment at that meeting, you must submit a written description of your concern to Dr. Miller via his ECE Department mailbox (not email) within five business days of that meeting.

Other

Students are expected to attend all lectures (note possibility of unannounced quizzes) and to be on time (assignments are collected at the beginning of class). Electronic devices, including cameras, are to be turned off (unless there is a safety issue or other documented reason) during lecture unless prior arrangements have been made with the instructor.

LABORATORY

 

Lab attendance is mandatory. Only under extremely unusual circumstances will make-up laboratories be considered.  Religious observances will be accommodated with advanced notice.  If an emergency prevents you from attending a laboratory or arriving on-time, contact your instructor PRIOR to the lab or as soon as you can, either by sending an email or leaving a message with the ECE Department Office at 276-3150.  Failure to adhere to this policy will result in zero credit for the lab and any other activities (e.g. quizzes) conducted in lab on the day of the absence.  If the laboratory notebook was due the day of the unexcused absence, no credit will be assigned for the analysis sections for laboratories to be graded.  Arriving late to lab (i.e. after the posted start time) without a valid excuse will result in zero credit for the quiz and potentially zero credit for the lab and any other activities conducted during that session.  There is no obligation to provide makeup lab sessions for unexcused tardy or absent students. Students must obtain an email approval from Dr. Miller prior to making up a lab.

 

While experimental data is collected in groups, all other laboratory activities must be completed individually.  Additional laboratory requirements will be presented in the first laboratory meeting.

 

Students that do not successfully complete the laboratory safety quiz conducted during the first lab session will not be allowed into lab.

 

Grading Basis

 

Your laboratory grade will be determined using the following evaluation criteria:

 

1.      Laboratory technique including demonstration of an ability to make appropriate observations and accurately and satisfactorily record observations and data in writing in a laboratory notebook (50%). Lab notebooks provide a convenient and professional method of organizing and storing your lab work and records.  Your laboratory notebook will be evaluated several times during the semester for neatness, organization, technical accuracy, and completeness.  Specific guidelines for the notebook will be provided in the laboratory.  Unless otherwise indicated, pre-lab assignments must be completed and included in your lab notebook before coming to lab. Each laboratory must be initialed by the lab instructor. Signatures will be made in only two cases:

a.      the laboratory is complete including the results section (LAB COMPLETE signature);

b.      the lab session is over (IN PROGRESS signature). For this case a second LAB COMPLETE signature is required by the end of the next lab session.

Laboratory notebooks are due several times during the semester as announced in lab and/or the online syllabus and/or via email to wmich.edu email addresses.  Late laboratory notebooks will not be accepted except under extremely unusual circumstances.

2.      Pre-lab quizzes (30%). Quizzes are closed book; however, you may use your laboratory notebook on quizzes. Potential sources of quiz questions include previous labs and the current pre-lab assignment and may require calculations.

3.      Laboratory report(s) (20%). Report(s) will be assigned in lecture and (as with homework) are due at the beginning of lecture. You must have attended the lab in order to prepare a lab report for that lab.

 

Failure to follow safe laboratory procedures as described in lab will result in removal from the lab and failure in the course.

 

EXAMINATIONS AND QUIZZES will be closed-notes closed-book unless otherwise noted. You must have a WMU issued ID with you at the exam. No hats or hoods may be worn during exams; seating might be randomized; all electronic devices including watches must be stowed away; a pencil will be provided. If you observe an apparent incident of academic misconduct, please alert Dr. Miller.

 

Only under extremely unusual circumstances will make-up examinations and quizzes be considered.  If an emergency prevents you from attending a scheduled examination or quiz, contact your instructor PRIOR to the test or as soon as you can. If the instructor cannot be reached directly, leave a message with the ECE Department (276-3150). Failure to adhere to this policy will result in zero credit for the exercise.

 

Use of Calculators:  Calculators are not allowed on examinations and quizzes.

HOMEWORK

There are two types of homework assignments:  homework submitted in-class and homework submitted online.  One or both types might be assigned.  ALL homework assignments will be announced in class and/or posted online. Homework assignments with missing or illegible names will not receive credit and may or may not be returned.

 

For In-Class Submissions

 

Homework due dates will be given in class. Homework is due at the beginning of lecture.  Each homework problem must be worked on separate page(s).  LATE HOMEWORK will not be accepted, except under extraordinary circumstances. Homework is to be completed individually.

 

Homework should normally be done on 8 1/2'' by 11'' sheets. “Engineer's Pad” sheets are preferred.  Solutions must be done in a neat, structured, logical, and orderly manner with frequent brief notations enabling the grader to readily verify the author's source of information, steps taken, sources of formula, equations, and methods used. USE THE PARTIAL CHECK LIST FOR SUBMITTED HOMEWORK BELOW.  Papers failing to meet these guidelines may not be graded and may be returned, with or without an opportunity for resubmission with a penalty.

 

PARTIAL CHECK LIST FOR SUBMITTED HOMEWORK

 

1.      Each problem must include: (a) author's name, (b) name/title of the assignment, and (c) date of completion.  PUT YOUR LABORATORY MEETING DAY AND TIME IN THE UPPER RIGHT HAND CORNER.

2.      Use only one side of the paper and include a brief and concise statement of the problem prior to its solution. Begin each problem on a new page.

3.      Number the pages and DOUBLE SPACE the text.

4.      Staple each problem in the upper left corner as needed.

5.      Entitle graphs, label and include axes, include key symbols for multiple curve graphs, and give brief notes of explanation where appropriate.

6.      Briefly but clearly annotate your document in a way which will provide the document reader with information such as

a.      which part of the assignment is this?

b.      what is being done and why?

c.      how was it done and what are the results?

d.      how was this equation obtained and how was it used?

e.      sample calculations and definitions of symbols/parameters where appropriate; and

f.       BOX AND LABEL ANSWERS.

 

For On-Line Submissions

 

The on-line homework process will be discussed in class.  It is your responsibility to monitor your online homework scores to insure that you have received proper credit.

 

If you believe that there is an error in an online problem solution, submit that problem to the instructor before the assignment due date either in class or in the instructor’s mail box in the ECE Department.  Include complete documentation (e.g. circuit diagrams) and a printout of the online solution with error(s) identified.  Clearly show how you arrived at your solution.  Follow the “in-class” submissions homework guidelines.
