V. COURSE CONTENT On Cooking, A Textbook of Culinary Fundamentals. VI. EVALUATION GUIDELINES:

Grading in a vocational training program is a measurement of growth in skill and professional work ethics and personal appearance. Skill development, production (preparation), Mise en Place (organization), sanitation, teamwork, research projects, lecture notebooks, competency, homework, daily journals and testing make up the grading components. LATE ASSIGNMENTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED and a ZERO (0) POINT VALUE WILL BE ISSEUED.

EVALUATION PROCESS Students are evaluated and graded by the faculty. Performance is not compared to other students, but is based on the level of performance anticipated by this program based on overall industry standards. Grades are determined by the instructor.

A) Testing & Homework 20% (200 Points) Testing (There are no make-up exams), All homework must be typed and may be e-mailed no later than 7:10 a.m. on the due date. Lecture notes, cost outs, information discussed in class, required reading, demonstrations, video instruction, and daily journal will comprise this portion of the students grade. The Daily Journal/self-evaluation is to be completed daily with date of entry with comments on learning reflections. Grades are determined by the instructor. These documents are to be maintained in a student portfolio and will be collected weekly. Read Chapters 29, 30 & 31 HOMEWORK: Questions and terms for Chapters 29, 30 & 31 due end of 13 day Baking Module. To be typed.

B) Project: In class project OR Paper on the History of Baking 20% (200 Points) There will be at least one project for each module. Each Project Paper (to be 5 pages, double space, font size 12) must be professional and readable, objective, clear, concise, fluent, reads well aloud, includes observable facts, meaningful, relevant content. A bibliography must be attached with ISBN numbers and/or web sites. Except for journals and cost outs, ALL work must be typed. Any plagiarized paper will receive zero points for a grade and an F grade will be given for that project.

PLAGIARISM Definition: What is Plagiarism? Simply stated, plagiarism is using another persons words or ideas without giving credit to the other person. We often assume that most students understand the difference between using an article, book, etc. as a reference and borrowing wording material for a presentation. What are some common types of plagiarism? Downloading a free research paper (often written by another student potentially with old references). Buying a commercially offered research paper. Copying an article or paper from the web. Cutting and pasting a paper from several sources. Paraphrasing or quoting certain parts from an original text. False citations. In their book, The Logic and Rhetoric of Expression, Harold C. Martin and Richard M. Ohmann identified some distinct forms of plagiarism, including: 1. Word-For-Word Plagiarism

This example will likely consist of an opening sentence of a paragraph, or a portion of it that is composed by the writer. What follows will be an exact copy of the original text of anothers work. This is the most obvious form of plagiarism we face and, perhaps surprisingly, the most common. 2. The Mosaic In this example, the writer will pull various short phrases from an original text and weave them into their writing in various ways. 3. The Paraphrase Martin and Ohmann indicated the purpose of paraphrase should be to simplify or to throw a new and significant light on a text . . . and should be rarely resorted to by a student except for the purpose of . . . personal enlightenment. NO LATE PROJECTS ACCEPTED. C) Attendance 10% (100 Points) The nature of the Food Service/Hospitality industry is such that attendance and punctuality are of primary importance. For this reason the Culinary Arts Program requires strict adherence to our attendance policy. Excessive absences on the job will result in termination by most employers. The workload and time deadlines dont change if someone does not report to work, creating a hardship for the rest of the working team. Our policy is as follows:

Attendance guidelines for general education and division academic classes are determined by the instructor. Daily sign-in sheets may be provided to document student attendance. The signin sheet will be pulled at 7:20 a.m. Students not signed in at this time will be considered absent for the day. Absences: It is a courtesy to your fellow students to call-in when absent. Please leave notification by 7:00 a.m. for each absence. a. Each unexcused absence will result in a 50% down grade for attendance portion of the module grade. b. There is a maximum of two days of unexcused absences in each quarter. c. A third unexcused absence in a quarter will result in dismissal from the program. d. Students arriving after 7:20 a.m. or leaving prior to the end of the instructional day (1:00 a.m.) without instructor approval will be recorded the same as an absence. e. For an absence to be considered excused a student must have documentation from a medical professional; or, if there is a serious illness or death in the family; or, if there is a summons for jury duty. A call-in is still necessary by 7:00 a.m. each day. Please note careful the following paragraph.

Any three (3) days of absences in a module - excused or unexcused will result in an F for that module, and possible dismissal from the program. 100% Attendance should be every students goal! D) Laboratory Performance: 1) Skill Development The progressive development of hand skills and techniques; proficiency in the use of hand tools and knives; knowledge of basic cooking methods and application of these methods; communication skills; maintenance of a positive, helpful attitude (team oriented); dedication to increased learning and advancement of culinary knowledge. 2) Production Completes required tasks in a timely manner; ability to progressively increase production quantity and maintain quality standards; provides assistance as needed (team work); practices and promotes professional work ethics. 3) Organization Self-motivated, self- disciplined, dependable, and timely; follows directions, makes a plan and follows through; maintains a clean, efficient, and safe working environment; develop the ability to anticipate expected and unexpected situations. 4) Competency Evaluation Sheet Competency Evaluation Sheet to be completed by student.
