Intended Outcomes for the course

.

Course Activities and Design

At the beginning of each term, students should complete initial
     check-in and paperwork.  A meeting with an instructor may be
     required and special programs may be created in instances of
     special need. It is in the best interest of the physical
     education staff and the student that participants are aware of
     safety, time availability, proper techniques, etc.
    
     Participation must take place on the campus where the student
     initially checked in, except for instructor approved exceptions.
     Students may use open PE facilities when no instructional classes
     are scheduled for that facility, and when approved staff are on
     duty if assistance is needed.  In other words, unless previously
     arranged, credit will not be given for personalized programs off
     campus.
    
     Students must provide appropriate clothing for activities in
     which they participate.
    

Outcome Assessment Strategies

Attendance and Participation - 100%  A handout explaining grading
     procedures will be given to students at initial check-in.
     Although policies may vary between campuses,  the following
     procedures are generally used to determine grade:
          1.   Only one credit may be earned per term
          2.   Only one validation may be earned per day
          3.   A minimum of 110 minutes of participation per week is
               required for 11 weeks.
          4.   This requirement may be completed in three workouts per
               week at 37 minutes or two workouts per week of 55
               minutes each.
          5.   Students must sign in and out with the locker attendant
               when using the facilities,
          6.   Students enrolled in this program may use the
               facilities at campuses other than the one for which
               they registered.  However, before doing so, they are
               required to pay the special fee (use of lock,
               basket and towel) for the additional campus as they did
               for their home campus.
