Assessment Initiative

Information regarding the internal assessment from basic objectives of the program to posting of results from faculty input are available on the internal web site. The site also includes the methods required each semester to provide student data to the Assessment Program Director.

Class Attendance/Grades

Be sure that all students attending your class are enrolled.
Incorporate some method of documenting student attendance for possible questions during or after the semester. Keep attendance for each class meeting the enter semester. This will assist you in providing documentation for various offices on campus, particularly the Veterans' Affairs Office.
You will need to turn in your grade/attendance records at the end of the semester. These records include dates of attendance, recorded grades, method of computing grades, and explanation for "I" (incomplete grades). In case of a question after the semester ends, keep these records in a form that someone in the division office can interpret.
A grade book form is available, in PDF file format, which you may print and use to record attendance:

Class Syllabus

The College adopted a class syllabus form for all faculty in the fall 2007 semester. It was determined through the Academic Affairs Committee that this is desirable to our students and useful to the faculty.

Grading Policy

Rose State College uses a four-point grading system: A, B, C, D, and F. For students who withdraw after the drop/add timeframe, a "W" is assigned. If students have completed the majority of the work required for a productive grade in the class, but encounters an extenuating circumstance, the professor may elect to assign an incomplete (I) grade. If the professor does so, conditions for completion must be documented on the back of the grade form submitted to the division office.

Guest Speakers

For liability purposes, the division office must be notified about any guest speaker or guest lecturer in your classroom.

PeopleSoft Grading

Grades are submitted electronically through the PeopleSoft system. Instructions on the process are available at this link:
