Evaluation Methods

 

N101 is divided into three segments for evaluation purposes.  A satisfactory grade in each segment is required for successful completion of the course.  All evaluation tools derive from course objectives.  The three segments are:

 

College Nursing Skills Laboratory performance is evaluated by student skills demonstration and written testing.  Students are tested on critical elements of skills at the end of the semester.  All critical elements must be performed at a satisfactory level.  All re-testing of critical elements must be completed before N101 final examination is taken.  Students are required to achieve 90% mastery in mathematics testing. 

 

Clinical Experience is graded on a Satisfactory-Unsatisfactory basis.  Students are evaluated as Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory for each clinical objective required in the nursing course for which the student is enrolled.  A student who receives a grade of satisfactory for every required objective receives a satisfactory grade for the clinical portion of the course.  A student who receives a grade of unsatisfactory for one or more objectives has not demonstrated the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities for the established level of practice. Students who receive an unsatisfactory grade for the clinical portion of the course receive a grade of  “F” for the course. See clinical evaluation tool for further clarification.

                                                                                                     

Class Discussions/Seminar testing occurs during scheduled N101 lecture times.  The tests will be approximately 1 hour in length except for the final which will be 2 hours in length.  There are 3 unit examinations, a comprehensive final examination, a critical thinking project, and a summative in class writing assignment.

 

Test #1                                                 15%

                                    Test #2                                                 20%

                                    Test #3                                                 20%                            

CT Paper                                             10%

                                    In Class Writing Assignment                  10%

                                    Comprehensive Final                            25%                                                                                                                                        100%

 

Seventy percent is the minimum required for successful completion of this segment of N101.  The range of grade scores is:

 

                                    A = 90%

                                    B = 80%

                                    C = 70%

                                    D = 60%

                                    F = Below 60%

 

Students are referred to the Student Guide for information concerning policies on test absence and test grading.  Failure of any one or more of these three segments:

 

                        College Nursing Skills Laboratory

                        Clinical Experience

                        Class Discussion/Seminar

 

results in failure of N101 regardless of performance in the other segment(s) of the course.  Failure of N101 requires withdrawal from the nursing program
