Course Activities and Design

The course allows the instructor and the student to develop a study contract emphasizing self-directed projects.  The contract will be on
 a totally individualized basis allowing for maximum flexibility in the type of study to be done.  This course may also be used for 
 off-campus theatre activities.

Outcome Assessment Strategies

The student's grade will be based on the supervising instructor's evaluation on the student's fulfillment of the mutually agreed upon
 contract.  The quality as well as quantity of that work will be the basis of the assigned grade.  Each student will be required to make
 interval progress reports either written or oral to the supervising instructor.  Evaluation in the form of a test, a report, a project or
 a viable alternative will be required of all participants.
