Each student will receive instruction that relates to the performance of useful, creative, and productive career-oriented activities. The course is presented through comprehensive lesson plans which reflect effective educational methods. Subjects are presented by means of interactive lecture, demonstration, cooperative learning, labs, student salon activities, and student participation. Audio-visual aids, guest speakers, field trips, projects, activities, and other related learning methods are used in the course.
This policy applies to all programs in this catalog. Students must complete academic and practical learning assignments as scheduled. Academic learning is evaluated after each unit of study. Practical skills requirements are evaluated as completed and counted toward course completion only when rated satisfactory or better. If the performance does not meet satisfactory requirements, it is not counted, and the performance must be repeated. This portion of practical skills assessment is not considered part of the satisfactory progress evaluation policy. Students are tested in both written and practical applications at the end of each scheduled evaluation period. Practical skills are evaluated according to published practical grading skills competency evaluation criteria. Students must maintain a minimum grade average of 70% in both written and practical learning according to the following scale:
|80-89 ||B||Above Average
|60-69 ||D||Below Average
Students must make up failed or missed tests, and incomplete assignments. If a student has been unable to attend classes based on their schedule, other arrangements may be approved for them to attend during daily normal business hours.
