3 HTEC 60A­Telecourse (Hassel)

3. Create a set of flashcards (3 x 5 index cards) with the terms printed on them.


You will complete selected questions from some of the Chapter Tests and Review Exams in the workbook, but not every test and exam in every chapter. See the Assignment Schedule in this syllabus for specific information. The chapter tests and review exams must be turned in to Pat Hassel's mailbox outside SA-77a or at the Distance Learning Center by the due dates listed on the Assignment Schedule. You must turn in or FAX the original pages from the textbook: photocopies are not accepted. Submitting Assignments [copy and attach the cover sheet on the last page of this syllabus]: · Turn in your paper to Pat Hassel's mailbox outside S-77a or at the Distance Learning Center, room LC-107. During regular hours drop them into the Homework Drop Box inside the office and sign in your name on the "Student Coursework Sign-In-Sheet" so there is a record of your paper being turned in there. After hours, drop them into the Homework Drop Box located by the Distance Learning Center entrance (LC-107). · FAX your paper to one of the two Distance Learning Center FAX machines (408) 864-5444 or (408) 864-5546. Graded homework is returned for review to the DL Center about 7­10 days after its due date. You may take notes on the homework but you may not take it with you. Please present your DASB Photo ID to the Distance Learning Center staff to review your work.


There will be several questions about the weekly assignments, so this will clarify where the assignments are located-in the back section of your text (see "assignment sheet" in your course syllabus for page and question numbers).

True-False Questions (example-Chapter #5 assignment)

There are several assignments that include "True-False" questions. Some are the usual true/false (in other words you circle the "T" or the "F"). However, some are different-if the statement is true, you circle the number of the question and if the question is false, you do not circle the "F", and you write the correct answer beside the statement. Please follow the instructions so that you will not lose any points.

Fill in the Blank (example-Chapter #7, 8, 9 assignment)

Several assignments include guessing which medical terms and definitions are appropriate. Actually, the instructions state that I will dictate words for the blanks, but that is not possible, so you have to guess which words fit in the blanks (there might be more than one correct answer-I will accept your answer if it makes sense). These assignments will take more time than any other assignments, so be prepared!

Complete Diagrams (example-Review Exam #1)

At least two assignments have extra pages with diagrams that have to be identified. Please do not forget to complete these extra pages and include them when you submit your homework.

Grading of Your Weekly Assignments

Your weekly assignments are due in the Distance Learning Center twelve days after the initial broadcast on the Community College Network (Tuesdays) . Your graded assignments will be placed in your folders 2 weeks after the initial broadcast. You may review your graded assignments during (LC107) Distance Learning Center's hours (Monday­Thursday, 9:00 AM­6:00 PM/closed on Fridays and weekends). You may not take your graded assignments out of your folder. They have to stay in your folder in distance learning.

FAX Cover Sheet

Please remember to use the Fax Cover Sheet (attached to your course syllabus) each week if you plan to FAX your assignments to Distance Learning; however, I have encouraged you to send your assignments to my FAX number (408-864-5444) without the cover sheet, but write your name on every sheet you fax to me.

Submitting Your Assignments

Please FAX your assignments to me (408-864-5444); if mine is busy, then fax to distance learning. Remember, you must use BLACK PEN is you plan to FAX. If you do FAX your assignments, please write your telephone number on your cover sheet/first page just in case! However, you do not have to FAX your assignments. You may deliver them to my office (S-77a) and place them in the white locked mailbox to the right of my door (available 24 hours/day).


The four scheduled exams consist of multiple-choice questions. There is a take-home final exam from the text. See the Assignment Schedule for specific exam information. There are no make-up exams allowed after the exam dates! Testing Materials: Bring one Scantron Answer Form (1/2 page brown and white), a Photo ID, and one #2 pencil to each exam. Exams: You may take exams early but not after the exam dates! Many exams will be left in the testing locations. You have three sites to choose from. Use your Scantron Answer Form and a #2 pencil to record your responses. Write your name, social security number, and the exam number on the Scantron. You must complete the exams by Friday of the week the test is given.
