• Attendance – Attendance is expected .


• Group Project – a separate sheet will be handed out detailing the
group project due in presentation at next to the last class!
• Quizzes – Two quizzes will be given in the course of the term with
the first one being worth 250 points and the second worth 250 points
respectively. The CPA exam is all multiple choice questions and
therefore I believe that this is one of the best ways to test your
knowledge in accounting – you can cover more points and I can test
both computational and theory problems.
• Homework – Homework problems are of two varieties – assigned
but not turned in and assigned to be turned in. Only required
problems will be handed in and these will be put in the Web CT no
later than Midnight of the last Sunday of the week (which is also the
first Sunday of the next week). All submitted homework is to be
done on the templates provided by the book. The other problems
assigned should be completed and the answers to those problems
are posted into WebCT. No late homework accepted.
• Final- The final will be given at the appropriate time in final week
and will be multiple choice similar to the earlier quizzes and
comprehensive – e.g. covering all the chapters but with emphasis
on the last three chapters.

Course GENERAL COURSE POLICIES


Policies
and MAKE UP EXAMS - There will be no make up exams. In the case
Procedures of extenuating circumstances AND prior notification by the student
to the instructor, the grade on the “next” exam can be substituted
for the grade on the missed exam. This can only be done once by
a student.

DAILY CLASS OPERATIONS – Class is composed to four parts:


(1) Lecture over the current chapter – you should have read the
chapter prior to class; (2) Discussion of the case – which you also
should have read before class; (3) Review of the Summary Problem
for the chapter; and, (4) Questions, review and discussion of any
topic covered so far. Homework assigned either turned in or not will
have the answers posted on WebCT. If after you have reviewed
the answers, you still do not understand the problem, we can go
over it at this time.

SPECIFIC COURSE POLICIES

WebCT – All electronic communication will take place through WEB


CT (Not UTD email or websites). Therefore you should check
WebCT regularly and check for are items or handouts. Periodically
I will post additional problems and solutions on WebCT.

EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE

All emails must have the student name and course in


the subject line of the email or they have a chance of
being tagged as “junk emails” by the email program.

COMMUNICATION WITH INSTRUCTOR

It is the policy of this class to maintain constant


communication. I will check my email and WebCT
course page daily. Also feel free to email me at
