Use this form to keep a record of your progress, personal schedule, and the grades you receive in this course. You will receive your personal Start, W and End Dates in the mail from ELI. Print out this page and fill in the due dates for each Unit counting from your start date as week 1. Two Activities by the end of each week will get you through the course by your end date. Each Unit should take you no more than two weeks to complete. If you find you cannot keep up with this pace, you may always just revert to the regular 16 week schedule for the course.
As you submit work, fill in the date you submitted it and the grade you received for each assignment. Then, to know where you are in the course, just add up the grades.
You may only submit one Activity at a time. Then, wait for my feedback and grade before submitting the next. This can take up to two or three days, so plan ahead. There are days when I do not grade and there are days when some of the Internet systems may be down. So please do not wait for the last minute and assume you will be able to get done.
You may only submit one Exam at a time. You must successfully complete all the Activities that precede the Exam before taking the Exam. After you post your Exam on Blackboard, you may post the next Activity before receiving the Exam grade.
It is important to keep copies of all your work until you have received your final grade, since I delete work from the forums after 45 days. You should also keep the e-mail grades I send you until you have received your final grade for the course.
You will receive your personal Start, Last Refund, W and End Dates in the mail from ELI. Use them to fill out this form. I have also posted the Critical Dates for your enrollment on the Announcements page of Blackboard.
My ELI Critical Dates:
My Start Date is:____________
My First Assignment Due Date is________________. You must post at least your Introduction by this date to remain in the course.
If you do not sign in to Blackboard by this date, you will be dropped from the course with no refund.
My Inactive Students Dropped Date is__________________
If you do not successfully complete ALL of Unit 1, including Exam 1, by this date, you will be dropped from the course with no refund.
My Last Date for Withdrawal is:______________
If you do not successfully complete (grades of 60% or higher) all of Units 1 and 2, including Exam 1, by this date, you will be dropped from the course with a grade of W. If you are following the eight week schedule, your W date would actually be in week 9, so if all goes well, you will be done by now! I will under NO CIRCUMSTANCES grade more than one piece of work in a single day, so you must plan accordingly.
My End Date is:_____________
