    SCHEDULE OF CLASSES:

    Assigned Written Work (25%): Primarily, this section includes a series of three Unit Tests based on the material contained in

    the course textbook. Each test covers four chapters and contains fifty questions. Tests must be

  • completed in an approved testing center, such as the Kilgore College Testing Center. Each Unit

    Test will be available in the testing center for a four day period as stated on the course calendar on

    this Web site. Summer testing schedules may vary according to Testing Center policies. Web

    students may repeat each test once to earn a better grade, but a 24-hour waiting period is required

    between tests. However, if a student does repeat a Unit Test, the second grade will be the recorded

    grade for the test even if it is lower than the first grade.

    For each chapter, McGraw-Hill, the textbooks publisher, offers a practice test on its interactive

    web site. These tests are also available on the SPCH 1315 web site. Web students are strongly

    encouraged to use these practice tests to review each chapter before taking the Unit Tests.

    Students must have a passing average of 70 or above on the unit tests in order to proceed to

    the Speaking Assignments Unit.

    Each web student is required to turn in a typed outline of his/her speech according to the

    semester schedule provided by the course instructor; failure to turn in the required outline at the

    required time will result in the students losing his/her speaking space and receiving a grade of

    0 for that speech.

    For the web-based course, due dates for student speech outlines will be posted on this website

    and/or emailed to course participants by the beginning of the semester.
