Grading Basis: Grades will be based upon three categories: Clicker Questions (in-class & online)Cumulative ExamsGroup ProjectClicker Questions (in-class & online): During every class, questions will be presented that are to beanswered via student’s own smartphones or devices. These questions are typically scored as 90% for anincorrect answer and 100% for a correct answer.Online clicker question will be assigned on the off-weeks via Canvas. These questions will be graded inthe same way, 90% for an incorrect answer and 100% for a correct answer.Exams: There will be three exams during the semester taken via clickers. These exams are cumulative.Exam 1 covers the material from the first third of the course. Exam 2 covers the material from both thefirst third and the second third, though it will be weighted more towards the second third. The sameholds true with the Final Exam. This is done to promote long-term retention of the materialThe lowest exam will be dropped out of the first 2 exams. The final exam cannot be dropped.Students who arrive late for an examination will be permitted to sit the test provided that no studenthas turned in their paper prior to the student’s arrival. Once a paper has been turned in, late arrivingstudents will not be permitted to begin the test or exam. A student who begins a test late will not begiven extra time at the end of the examination period.Final Examination: The final exam is cumulative and required.Exams and Clickers: Exam answers may be entered via ResponseWare if possible.Makeup Exams: If traveling on official University business, a similar multiple-choice makeup exam willbe available. For all other absences, no makeup exams will be given.Group Project Presentation: Students will be tasked with applying their economics knowledge to a realworld issue. Groups will present on Monday, May 1st. More information about this assignment will beavailable on Canvas.Grading:Group Project PresentationClicker Questions (in-class & online)ExamExam Final20%5% (drop lowest 2 days/online assignments, capped at 100%)50% (best 1 of first 2)25%3

Example: 89.5% will round to an A, while89.49999% will not.Attendance: Attendance is not taken though students who miss class will obviously lose exam pointsand/or in-class clicker points. There may be a multi-point clicker question at the beginning of class tomake sure students arrive on time.Academic Integrity: Students have the responsibility to know and observe the requirements of The UNCCharlotte Code of Student Academic Integrity. This code forbids cheating, fabrication or falsification ofinformation, multiple submissions of academic work, plagiarism, abuse of academic materials, andcomplicity in academic dishonesty. Any special requirements or permission regarding academic integrityin this course will be stated by the instructor and are binding on the students. Academic evaluations inthis course include a judgment that the student’s work is free from academic dishonesty of any type;and grades in this course therefore should be and will be adversely affected by academic dishonesty.Students who violate the code can be expelled from UNC Charlotte. The normal penalty for a firstoffense is a lowering of the course grade by one letter grade. For second offenses, i n almost all cases,the course grade is reduced to an F. Copies of the code can be obtained from the Dean of StudentsOffice. Standards of academic integrity will be enforced in this course. Students are expected to reportcases of academic dishonesty to the course instructor.Using another student’s clicker to enter responses in their absence is a violation of the academicintegrity code. To that end, there is no plausible motive for possessing another student’s clicker otherthan to obtain points for an absent student. Consequently, possession of another student’s clicker willbe taken as evidence of intent to violate the academic integrity code and will be prosecuted to thefullest extent allowed under the UNC-Charlotte Academic Integrity Code.If you are caught using someone else’s clicker, both students will have their course grades dropped byone letter grade.Cell Phones: Cellular Telephones and pagers are to be turned off and stowed out of sight for all classesand exams. Under very extraordinary circumstances (such as someone providing emergency care for afamily member), students will be permitted to leave their cell phone or pager (using silent ring options)on during class, but never during a test or exam. Students who confront such emergencies must obtainprior approval from the professor.Exam Schedule: The University has very specific guidelines regarding the circumstances under whichstudents are permitted to reschedule final examinations. These guidelines will be followed to the letter.Students who do not meet the specific guidelines set forth by the university will not be permitted totake the final examination at a time other than the officially proscribed period for any reason. The4

semester ends with the final examination. There will be no accommodation for students who want totake an early exam for any reason other than representing the university. Students representing theuniversity must provide written documentation from appropriate university personnel.Diversity: The Belk College of Business strives to create an inclusive academic climate in which thedignity of all individuals is respected and maintained. Therefore, we celebrate diversity that includes,but is not limited to ability/disability, age, culture, ethnicity, gender, language, race, religion, sexualorientation, and socio-economic status.FAQ:Do you give partial credit on exams?
