Forum assignments – Students will engage in discussion dialogs designed to foster and support a community of learning within the classroom, an APUS requirement. A substantive “initial” post in response to instructor posted instructions on the boards is required as are a minimum of two replies to classmates’ posts. Detailed instructions, including minimum length and source crediting requirements are on each weekly Forum.
There are 4 written Assignments: Please see the assignment section of the classroom for additional guidelines and the grading rubric for each assignment.
Students are expected to submit classroom assignments by the posted deadlines and to complete the course according to the published class schedule. Should additional time to complete an assignment be needed due to unavoidable situations such as a sudden change in work duties or a health emergency, the course instructor must be consulted with before the due date or as soon as reasonably possible after. Submitting assignments late without prior approval will result in significant point reduction and negatively affect the final course grade.
Professors have up to 7 days after the end of the course to submit final course grades to the University.
