Instructional / Methods / Activities Assessments of Learning Outcomes
This course is designed as a capstone course that is a summative evaluation of your experience in the Alternative
Certification Program. The course will measure the attainment of curricular outcomes in your chosen certification
area.
“The capstone course is an opportunity for students to demonstrate that they have achieved the goals for learning
established by their educational institution and major department. The course should be designed to assess
cognitive, affective and psychomotor learning and to do so in a student-centered and student-directed manner
which require the command, analysis and synthesis of knowledge and skills”
Users.etown.edu/m/moorerc/ch21capstonecourse91704.htm
You will be expected to analyze and apply the accumulated learning from prerequisite courses and display
creative products and solutions to requirements presented by the Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities
Standards and Technology Applications Standards. A project-based approach will be the course instructional
design culminating with an ePortfolio.
You are expected to:
Participate in all online individual projects and group discussions. This is a capstone course, therefore you will be
working alone to create your ePortfolio. However, there may be opportunities to work with a partner or in a group of
3-4 students. Working with a partner or in a group requires you to follow the CCC: collaboration, cooperation, and
completion. This means, as an adult learner, you will collaborate with another student or students in a cooperative
manner to complete a quality product. Two minds are better than one so partnerships or groups are
encouraged. However, your instructor WILL NOT mediate should an issue arise pertaining to CCC; you are
expected to find a resolution. You will always have the choice to opt out of the partnership or group and work as an
individual. Therefore, you are expected to show a level of professionalism and stay actively engaged with your
partner or the group through communication and contributions to complete the project.
Discussions will consist of your postings and responses. Your discussion should be full of thought, insight, and
analysis. For others to get something from your discussion it should be rich in content with new ideas. You may
use details and connections to make a point. A discussion is two people exchanging ideas, so you need to
comment on two other classmates’ postings, if everyone has thought of your original idea, you may post responses
to four other people’s postings. They should add to the original discussion. Try to "think outside the box" when
developing your responses. Just simply saying I (dis)agree will not be enough. The instructor will grade
discussions.
Read required textbook, view required videos; look up required articles or websites. The student will be expected to
read the required text and any supplemental materials. This is an online course that presents written information as an
alternate mode of lecture. Do not take this lightly; as an online course you are expected to read/reflect for meaning.
Reflections: throughout the course, the student will be asked to consider the outcomes of his/her ideas presented
in projects. Some of the reflections may be assigned and submitted to the instructor, others may be for personal
reflection and kept by the student for the ePortfolio.
Written tasks: Completion of all written tasks and projects should exhibit professionalism in appearance and
content at an acceptable level of scholarship. All written material, ePortfolio, reflections and discussions should be
6
typed and carefully edited.
Assignments/projects are to be completed and turned in according to the schedule posted in eCollege. Domains
open the first day of class. Extra credit is not an option. There will be no reminders for the close of Domains.
Late work will not be accepted without an excused absence and/or extenuating circumstances as determined by
the instructor with late due date determined by the rubric. The campus library and/or computer labs are available
for use in the event personal technology fails or supplies or assistance is needed.
Grading Procedures: The final grade for this course will be calculated by determining percentage of total
possible points you have obtained. Rubrics will be reflect percentage of total points for each assignment/project.
A = 90-100% of total points
B = 80-89% of total points
C = 70-79% of total points
D = 60-69% of total points
F = <60% of total points

and present in writing the reasons why he or she believes a higher grade was earned. The
professor is obliged to hear and read the case and provide an answer to that appeal with a reasonable time. If the
student continues to be dissatisfied with the decision of the professor, the student may contact the
head of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction and continue the appeal at that level.
