Seminar Quiz

This course has a Seminar Quiz in lieu of the Alternative Assignment. After attending the live Seminar or listening to the transcript, you must complete the Seminar Quiz to earn points for the Seminar. The quiz must be completed by the last day of the Unit. The Seminar Quiz will consist of questions based on the topics that were covered in the Live Seminar. You will have 30 minutes to take the Quiz and one attempt. Access the Seminar Quiz in the left navigation bar.

Note: Even if you attend the live Seminar or listen to the transcript you MUST complete the Seminar Quiz to earn points.

i-Human Late Policy
i-Human assignments are not subject to the late policy and must be completed by the end of the
unit in which they are assigned.
Page 6


You are expected to submit all assignments and projects by the end of the Unit.
Students may turn in late work up to two weeks after the due date. After that, a zero will be assigned for each assignment. Ten percent of the assignment value will be deducted after the assignment is graded for each week that an assignment is late. For example, if your assignment worth 100 points is due on Tuesday and you submit it on Wednesday, 10 points will be deducted after it is graded. If you submit it two weeks late, there will be a reduction of 20% of the original assignment value after the assignment is graded.
All late work must be submitted by Sunday of the last unit. No late work will be accepted after this without an Incomplete Grade approval.

Certain course activities may not be eligible for late submission. These include, but are not limited to discussions, seminars, quizzes, labs, exams, and clinical activities.
We know that extenuating circumstances can interfere with timely submission of your work. Be sure to tell your professor and your Education Advisor right away if you are going to be late with a submission.
Your professor will determine whether an exception to the Purdue Global Late Policy is appropriate. S/he may also require you to provide documentation of the reason. If your professor determines that an extension is warranted, s/he will provide you with the expectations for your submission or assignment in writing.

Extenuating circumstances include, but are not limited to, personal/family member hospitalization, family member death, a severe weather event, a natural disaster, and an active military assignment that prevents internet connectivity. Computer-related issues, Internet connectivity, and account blocks are generally not considered extenuating circumstances.

Assignments typically require you to submit coursework via the Dropbox. Coursework will be graded according to rubrics found in the Grading Rubrics content item under Course Resources. Assignments are due by 11:59 p.m. ET of Tuesday of the unit for which they are assigned, with the exception of Unit 10 dropbox submitted work and discussion boards. If a dropbox submission or discussion board assignment is due in Unit 10 it will be due at 11:59 ET on Sunday. All Assignments must be submitted via the Dropbox to ensure credit.


Many courses require Quizzes and/or Exams. In some cases, a course may also include a Midterm and/or Final Exam. Exams/Quizzes are due EOD Tuesday of their assigned unit. All Exams/Quizzes must be submitted via the exam tool to ensure credit.


Attending live Seminars is important to your academic success, and attendance is highly recommended. The Seminar allows you to review the important concepts presented in each unit, discuss work issues in your lives that pertain to these concepts, ask your instructor questions, and allow you to come together in real time with your fellow classmates. If Seminar is graded, you must either attend the live Seminar or you must complete the Seminar alternative assignment (Option 2) in order to earn points for this part of the class. If Seminars is not graded, you are still encouraged to attend in order to ask questions, learn about upcoming Assignments, and to interact with your instructor and classmates.

A description of all Seminars to be held can be found under each of the units in the course.

Option 1: Attend Live Seminar

Live Seminar lasts for one hour. Seminars will be held using the Seminar tool. You will be provided with instructions on how to access a recording of the Seminar if you are not able to attend live. If Seminar is graded, your attendance and participation during live Seminar will be assessed using the rubric found in the Course Home.


Option 2: Seminar Alternative Assignment

If Seminar is graded and you are unable to attend the live Seminar, then be sure to complete the Seminar Alternative Assignment for each unit. Your responses will be assessed using the rubric found in the Course Home.


Discussion topics provide a forum for students to seek clarification and answer important questions about the course material. The Discussion also allows students to receive feedback from the instructor and other students in the class. A Discussion Board grade will be posted to the Gradebook for each unit using the following grading criteria.

The Discussion Board Requirement:

• Post a minimum of three posts per Discussion topic. One initial response and two replies to your classmates. MN576 NP I—PRIMARY CARE OF WOMEN’S HEALTH
• Posting on a minimum of 3 different days, for example: Wednesday, Friday, and Monday
• The first post must be made by Saturday, 11:59 p.m. EST.

Participating in Discussion Boards

You will communicate with your professor and classmates using the Discussion Board areas.
This is where you post your responses to Discussion topics and share your experiences in completing exercises and applying the content of the course.
Participation in Discussions is required and will help determine your grade. You are expected to contribute to each of the Discussion topics in each unit. You should read all responses of other students and add your own.
During Discussions Boards, you must demonstrate not only that you understand the subject matter but also that you can apply what you have learned, analyze it, integrate it with knowledge you already have, and evaluate it critically. Your postings should be appropriate and timely contributions that add value to the Discussion.
Your instructor will provide you more detailed information about requirements and grading related to participation in Discussions.

Discussion Guidelines

To ensure your success as a contributor to Discussions and as a student in this class, we suggest the following guidelines for posting:
• Be clear about which message you are responding to. Refer to specific passages or ideas in the course or text that have sparked your interest.
• Make sure your contribution adds something new to the Discussion. A simple “I agree” may be your initial response, but think about how you can take the conversation to the next level.
• Make your posting clear and easy to follow by dividing longer messages into paragraphs.
• Address classmates by name or user name, and sign your own messages.
• Feel free to pose new questions to your classmates within your own message.
• Use correct spelling, capitalization, grammar, syntax, and punctuation.
• If you plan to post a lengthy response, it is a good idea to type your response in Word or Notepad™, then copy and paste it into the Discussion area. This way you will always have a record of your communication if for some reason you lose your connection to the course.
• If you have any questions on these procedures, please contact Student Services.

Sample Question and Answers

The following are some examples of acceptable and unacceptable responses to Discussion topics: MN576 NP I—PRIMARY CARE OF WOMEN’S HEALTH
Page 10
Unacceptable: “I agree.”
Unacceptable: “I think the author is off her rocker on this point. I can’t stand it when techies try
to write about education.”

Acceptable: “I agree with Becky W’s basic point — that is, I think she’s right that the advent of the Internet means dramatic changes in how we teach. But I think she’s so concerned with whether technology is going to replace teachers that she misses an essential point. Teachers must change themselves to use the Internet effectively. The Internet will never replace teachers and it will never be a successful tool unless teachers make it one.”

Acceptable: “I disagree with Becky W. The Internet has not changed teaching any more than the printing press changed teaching, or modern instructional design has changed teaching. New ideas about teaching and new technologies help us deliver good teaching more effectively. They may help us understand more fully what we’re delivering. They may help us reach more students. But the essence of good teaching remains the same.”


A rubric is a tool used by your instructor to determine your performance on assessments (Assignments, Discussions, Seminars, etc.) throughout your course. The rubric lists the criteria for the assessment on which you will be graded. You should follow the rubric so you understand exactly what is expected of you in each assignment. Following the rubric will help make sure you do not lose points unnecessarily on any graded item. The rubrics for this course are contained in the Grading Rubrics content item on the left navigation menu in the course.


Interactions in an online classroom are in written form. Your comfort level with expressing ideas and feelings in writing will add to your success in an online course.
The ability to write is necessary, but you also need to understand what is considered appropriate when communicating online.
The word “netiquette” is short for “Internet etiquette.” Rules of netiquette have grown organically with the growth of the Internet to help users act responsibly when they access or transmit information online. As a student, you should be aware of the common rules of netiquette for the Web and employ a communication style that follows these guidelines.
• Wait to respond to a message that upsets you and be careful of what you say and how you say it.
• Be considerate. Rude or threatening language, inflammatory assertions (often referred to as “flaming”), personal attacks, and other inappropriate communication will not be tolerated.
• Never post a message that is in all capital letters — it comes across to the reader as SHOUTING! Use boldface and italics sparingly, as they can denote sarcasm.
• Keep messages short and to the point.
• Always practice good grammar, punctuation, and composition. This shows that you have taken the time to craft your response and that you respect your classmates’ work.
• Keep in mind that Discussion Boards are meant to be constructive exchanges.
• Be respectful and treat everyone as you would want to be treated yourself.
• Use spell check!
You should also review and refer to the Electronic Communications Policy contained in the most recent Purdue Global Catalog.
