student will also be able to relate histological tissue formations
to anomalies which may develop.

|Methods of Evaluation:
It is essential that the student stay current with assignments,
postings and examinations. Assignments and examinations must be
completed by the posted date. Failure to complete assignments and
examinations by the posted date will result in a zero (0) for that

on to the course at least three times a week for the remainder of
the semester. Students who do not log on to the course for a week
after the withdrawal date will be assigned an “Early F”.
Student participation is very important in this class. Topic
discussion forums afford each student an opportunity to share in the
learning process while making cyber- contact with fellow students to
enhance the educational experience and heighten levels of learning.
Each student has many unique opportunities to add thought and
increase awareness of subject matter throughout the course.
Students are expected to log in on the first day of each week and
attend a minimum of three times in the week, througout the week to
earn the topic discussion points.
A student registering late in any course will be counted absent for
those class meetings missed prior to the late registration for that
ALL TESTING WILL BE ADMINISTERED IN THE WARRINGTON CAMPUS ASSIGNED
COMPUTER LAB ROOMS IN BUILDING 3100. NO EXCEPTIONS. EXAMS WILL BE

AM. PLEASE NOTE EXAM DATES ON SCHEDULE. THESE DATES WILL BE THE
ONLY TIMES THAT STUDENTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO BE ON CAMPUS FOR DEH
1130W, EMBRYOLOGY/HISTOLOGY CLASS.
The student’s knowledge will be evaluated by the following criteria:
• Module assignments (12 x 3 points each) 10%
• Bulletin Board assignments (12 x 3 points each) 10%
• Exams (4 x 25 points each) 50%
• Final Exam (Cummulative 50 points) 30%
