Sannella; Pearson Publishing </p><p>2016; ISBN 13: 9780134053714 </p><p>FASB Codification Access for Students: Login: AAA51914 Password: c63hKHR The website to login is </p><p>Remind Application Instructions on how to sign up for this safe texting app will be sent at the beginning of the </p><p>course. You must sign up for this mode of communication. </p><p>MyAccountingLab MAL is a computer program developed and designed to reinforce the information </p><p>introduced in the accounting text. You will use the computer program to complete </p><p>exercises and problems that will give you practice in applying basic accounting principles </p><p>;coid=17982</p></li><li><p>and procedures. A major advantage of computer-assisted instruction is that you will be </p><p>provided immediate feedback to your responses and provided with an explanation of the </p><p>suggested solution to the exercise. ALL assignments (HW/Exams) completed on MAL </p><p>are due by 9:00pm on the due date. No late work is accepted! </p><p>HOMEWORK </p><p>Homework assignments are to ensure that you are comprehending current material being </p><p>covered. You should NOT wait until the due date to begin work on the homework! You </p><p>may work on the homework at different times (the assignment does not have to be </p><p>completed in one sitting) and you can work/rework each exercise/problem as many times </p><p>as needed to fully grasp the material up to the due date of the assignment. The homework </p><p>assignments are a tool to allow you the opportunity for more practice of the concepts in </p><p>the chapter and those covered in class. Working diligently and fully understanding the </p><p>homework assignment will be a good first step in preparation for the upcoming exam. </p><p>You should NOT fully rely on the homework as your only preparation for the </p><p>exam/assessment(s). (These assignments are located under Do Homework in MAL). </p><p>EXAMS </p><p>Exams are completed online via MAL (can be a combination of short answer, multiple </p><p>choice). Exams test your ability to recall the concepts that you have acquired in your </p><p>readings of the chapters, our class discussions, online lectures and individual research. In </p><p>addition, exams will require that you be able to not only recall concepts but be able to </p><p>apply them in accounting situations. Exams will be given, on MAL, during the course as </p><p>outlined in the Course Calendar. Please note: there are NO makeup exams! All exams </p><p>open at 6am and close at 9pm (central time). The exams have a time limit of 2 hours </p><p>(except for the final with a time limit of 3 hours). Once you begin an exam on MAL </p><p>you will have to complete the assignment (i.e. you may not stop and start). Once the last </p><p>day to complete the exam has past there will be no make-up exams allowed. That being </p><p>said, I always recommend completing assignments earlier rather than later. (These </p><p>assignments are located under Take a Test in MAL). All exams are open 6am-9pm. </p><p>FINAL EXAM </p><p>The final exam will be administered during the final exam week via MAL. You will be </p><p>given 3 hours to complete the comprehensive exam. It must be completed PRIOR to </p><p>9:00pm on the last day of final exam week. Do not wait until the last minute </p><p>(computer/Internet problems is not an excuse to not complete the exam on time NO </p><p>EXTENSIONS WILL BE GIVEN!) Final exam is open 6am-9pm. </p><p>PARTICIPATION/DEPORTMENT/PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT </p><p>A portion of your grade MAY be determined by your level of activity in periodic online </p><p>discussions of topics as well as your responses to others postings. In addition, good </p><p>behavior is expected in this course and lack of respect for each other and/or the professor </p><p>will result in a reduction or loss of deportment points (i.e. poorly worded or </p><p>disrespectful email communication, discussion posts, etc.). </p><p>NOTE: </p></li><li><p>There are multiple online lectures that I have developed and you are encouraged to </p><p>utilize those to assist you throughout this course. The online lectures are not exhaustive </p><p>with regards to coverage of the material and you will not be able to rely solely on the </p><p>notes from those lectures. You can find them for this course on Blackboard as well as </p><p>other potentially helpful materials (lectures from your previous accounting courses: </p><p>Financial and Managerial). </p><p>All Assignments in MAL are due by 9:00pm on the due date or the last date available </p><p>unless otherwise stated. Discussion posts are due before midnight on the day of the next </p><p>exam. You should only email assignments if there is no specific dropbox created for </p><p>that assignment or if instructed to do so. Any emailed assignment should be in PDF </p><p>format and in ONE file (i.e. Not multiple files for multiple pages - these should all be </p><p>merged into one PDF file as with ALL submissions, if I can't open the file it will not be </p><p>accepted as on time). Any emailed assignments must appear in my email box PRIOR to </p><p>the beginning of the class it is due or it is considered late and will not be accepted. </p><p>Please make sure you keep a close eye on your MAL calendar and the course calendar at </p><p>the end of the syllabus to stay abreast of when things are due! This is YOUR </p><p>responsibility - NO LATE WORK IS ACCEPTED! </p><p>METHODS </p><p>1. Online video lectures and online discussion of text material, </p><p>2. Application of text material in solving assigned problems, </p><p>3.
