Expectations of Online Studies Students

Attendance

For the attendance policy please see the Student Online Handbook in Blazenet.

 

Due Dates A unit is considered to be Monday- Saturday. You are encouraged to “Observe the Sabbath day

and keep it holy.” Good time management is essential to career and academic success. Early

submissions of assignments and discussion responses are encouraged. Assignments submitted

late will be subject to a 30% reduction for each day they are late up to two days and will not be

accepted late after two days. Due dates are posted to the assignments.

 

Communication

Communicate questions directly to the professor, except in cases where you need to contact

technical support. Your Belhaven University email address will be utilized for the class, so check

it frequently.

 

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

Belhaven University offers students disability accommodation in accordance with the guidelines

of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The student must make his or her disability known to the

Office of Student Care, must provide current documentation of the disability from an appropriate

licensed professional, and complete the Belhaven ADA Request Form for accommodation. The

student must provide such a request to the Office of Student Care at least two weeks prior to the

beginning of each semester for which the accommodation is requested. Approved

accommodations will be communicated to the student and made within a reasonable time period

after completion of the official request. Apply under the Quick Links on the Student

Life/Services tab.

 

Required Formatting

The required formatting for your papers, assignments, projects, discussions, or anything else that

may be research based is the current edition of the Publication Manual of the American

Psychological Association (APA). APA information in Canvas can be located by clicking on

Resources and then Academic Help.

 

Responsible Research

Responsible research is a critical component of education, and any individual conducting

research must learn how to investigate, read, understand, systematize, interpret, and finally

explain complex ideas and issues in writing. An individual conducting research must also

understand that ideas found in literature, media presentations, interviews or any other form of

media do not belong to the researcher and therefore must be given credit through proper

documentation. It is required that every person conducting research provides proper credit

through correct use of documentation not only to prevent plagiarism but also to demonstrate

respect to the originator of the idea. To ensure that all papers possess originality, faculty

members will use Turnitin. Any paper exceeding 20% of non-original material or noticeable

undocumented information will be subject to a discount in points at the discretion of the faculty.

 

 

6

 

Originality

Unit writing and papers will be evaluated for originality using Turnitin. Belhaven University

encourages a high degree of originality in writing. Quoted material should seldom be used and

must be limited to phrases that cannot be paraphrased or summarized without losing their

effectiveness. Students are required to cite and reference all sources of information and images

using APA style.

Review the APA Quick Reference Style and Formatting Guide that includes Belhaven University

exceptions. Non-originality exceeding 20% on papers will be subject to discount at the

professor’s discretion and students may be referred to a writing lab for assistance with

originality.

 

Specific Practices to Avoid

 Do not attempt to get a research paper from the Internet (or anywhere else) and submit as your paper. This is dishonest and unethical.

 Do not copy from any book, article, or encyclopedia and submit this for your paper. This is not acceptable research.

 Include references (including source and page numbers) which document every source upon which you have in any way relied for each paragraph of your paper. If sources are

not properly referenced, the student has cheated the sources out of deserved credit and

cheated readers out of valuable information.

 Do not use material from any other student’s paper or work unless you give that student full credit in reference notes.

Summary of Assignments

Writing Assignments

Writing assignments must be APA compliant and include a title page, appropriate citations, and

references. The professor will post Unit Assignments on the first day of each unit. Assignments

are due no later than 11:59 p.m. (CT) on Saturday. Earlier submissions are encouraged.

 

Discussion Questions

The professor will post discussion questions on the first day of each weekly unit. You should

respond to the initial discussion questions no later than 11:59 p.m. (CT) each subsequent

Wednesday. Responses to classmate’s discussion questions are due Saturday at 11:59 p.m. for

each unit. Early postings are encouraged.

 

Initial discussion question responses must be a minimum of 250 words each. When indicated, a

response to a classmate must be at least 100 words. Fewer than this will automatically result in a

significant reduction in one’s grade. One initial response and one response to a classmate’s

posting are required for each question.

 

You must mention the person’s name to whose comments you are responding and quote what

aspect of his or her post you are addressing. Without either, it is not possible to see the direction

of your comments, and the comments will not receive any points.

available once all unit lectures have been viewed. Unit quizzes must be completed by Saturday at

11:59 p.m. (CT). Only after 11:59 p.m. (CT) on Saturday will correct answers for quizzes be
