    INTRODUCTION

My name is Martha Stuffler and I will be your instructor for this course.  I am very excited to have the opportunity to use the Internet to teach this class.  While I spent many years in the private sector, I have been teaching since 1989 and online since 2004 and have personally completed eight online courses so I understand the challenges of an online course.  If you wish to read my biography, it is on my webpage which also contains articles related to economic issues and other online resources. 

 In order to meet the varied needs of online students, my course design allows you to work at your own pace and provides some flexibility.  However, there are three important course deadlines which are the last possible day and time to submit Lab assignments 1-6, Lab assignments 7-14, and to complete the two On-Campus Exams.  These deadlines are extremely important and will not be changed for any reason.  The deadlines are discussed in this syllabus and shown in your course schedule which is the last page(s) of this syllabus.  Make sure that you mark your calendars and observe these important deadlines.  Your success in this course depends on it.   

 Online learning requires dedication, motivation, independent learning, and time management skills.  The best advice that I can give to ensure your success is to keep up with the recommended course schedule and observe the deadlines.  I wish you a rewarding and successful online course experience.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

 This introductory course presents statistical concepts and methods used extensively in business and economics, including computer-based statistical analysis.  Students study descriptive and inferential statistics using examples and observations, and perform statistical analysis using Excel and/or MegaStat.   Emphasis is on computer-assisted problem solving and inferential techniques that underlie decision-making within markets and international institutions. 

 The course provides a foundation to prepare business economics and business administration majors for required upper division courses in quantitative methods and provides a foundation to prepare economics majors for the study of econometrics.  In addition, since statistics is a very practical discipline concerned with real world problems, this course will benefit every student regardless of major.  

         This course is listed as Econ 10 and as MGT 10; credit is given in either area, not both.  Math 253 is a prerequisite for this course and Econ 1 or 2 are strongly recommended.

  STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

             1.    Apply concepts and methods of statistical analysis and inference to business and economics problems.

             2.    Define, illustrate, and explain statistical analysis applied to a case study.

             3.     Use at least one statistical software package for statistical analysis and inference.

             4.     Identify and select the appropriate statistical procedure to use based on the type of data for business and economics applications. 

             5.     Explain how variability in data can affect decision-making and the accuracy of forecasts. 

             6.     Develop a model based on assumptions to predict or forecast an economic variable or a    business situation. 

             7.     Compare statistical software for graphics, costs, user friendliness, and types of applications.

             8.      Formulate, write and present conclusions based on statistical analysis to non-statistical readers or listeners.

             9.     Describe and illustrate basic principles of statistical inference and probability theory that include hypotheses tests, variability, significance, and robustness.

           10.     Use time series data to perform trend line forecasting.

           11.     Formulate an hypothesis about a population and test using sample data.    

 REQUIRED MATERIALS

 The following is a list of basic requirements you need in order to be successful in this online course.  In addition to the items listed below, you should be familiar with using the Internet, and retrieving and sending email documents.  You should also have a working knowledge of your computer’s basic operating system.

 TEXTBOOK:  Essentials of Business Statistic with MegaStat Access Card, 4th edition, by Bowerman, O’Connell, Murphree and Orris, McGraw-Hill Irwin, ISBN 0077893514.   You may purchase a new textbook with the MegaStat Access Card at the IVC bookstore in-person or online at www.ivc.edu/bookstore. 

 If you purchase a used copy of the textbook, you will need to purchase the MegaStat software separately online at:  http://highered.mcgraw-hill.com/sites/0077425995/information_center_view0/megastat_.html.  Select First-Time Users, I am a Student, and purchase access to MegaStat® for Microsoft® Excel® 2003, 2007, and 2010 for $13.50 using a credit card.  This course requires you to have access to the textbook and use MegaStat software to perform the statistical calculations (you may not use another software).  MegaStat software runs on both PC and MAC based computers. 

 Calculator:  You will need a basic calculator for this course and may use your cell phone calculator. 

 Computer:  You will need to have a computer with Internet access and a printer to print out assessments.   Your home computer will require Windows 7, Vista, or XP, and MS Internet Explorer 7.0 or higher.   You will need Excel software with the MegaStat Add-in to complete the lab assignments for this course. 

  Throughout the course, you will be required to access the Internet, complete calculations using a basic calculator, and will need two Scantron forms No. 882 for exams. 

  COURSE CALENDAR 

 Classes start on the first Monday of the semester or term.  For course purposes, each week will begin on Monday at 12:01 a.m. and end on Sunday at midnight.  For a 16 week course, we will cover about one textbook chapter each week.   The detailed course schedule is the last page(s) of this syllabus.  You are free to work ahead of the schedule whenever you wish.  While this course is designed so that students may work at their own pace, the course schedule lists the recommended dates that you should complete specific items.  My experience has been that when students fall behind, it is very difficult to catch up and unlikely that they will be successful in the course.
 

GETTING STARTED AND ORIENTATION 

 Before you can get started, we need to get some basics out of the way.  I am listing the steps that you need to complete:

1.       Read the course syllabus to understand the material to be covered, the course requirements, and understand the 3 important course deadlines.

2.       Review the course schedule to make sure that you will be able to keep pace and make note of the three deadlines.

3.       Verify your Irvine Valley College email account username and password and learn how to access MySite from the Irvine Valley College homepage at www.ivc.edu.  It will allow you to gain access to a wide range of information, much of it customized specifically for you.  Enter your username:  For example, if your name is Sandy Beach, your email account name is sbeach0@ivc.edu. Your username would be sbeach0 (the first letter of your first name, your last name and a number, often zero). 

           Then enter your PIN number.  This number was either assigned to you or you picked the number when you registered.  If the number was assigned, it will be the last four digits of your social security number.  If you picked the number, only you will know it.

           If you have forgotten your number, you will have to personally contact Admissions and Records to get your PIN.  It may require that you to come to campus with picture identification.  

 4.       Forward your Irvine Valley College email account to any other email account you regularly access.  Unless I am replying to your email, I will only send email to your IVC email address.

 5.       Go to my webpage, click on Stats for Business and Economics, select Online Video Orientation, watch the video orientation, and complete the steps shown at the end of the video and those listed here.  

 6.       Complete the mandatory Blackboard Online Course Orientation and Final Assessment by going to http://www.ivc.edu and selecting the Blackboard button or directly access Blackboard by going to http://ivc.blackboard.com.  Login using the generic login:  Username:  orientation1 Password:  orientation1.  You will use this generic log in only for purpose of the orientation, but must use your own Blackboard login to access your specific online course.  Then click on the link “Online Course Orientation”.  

 7.       Copy and paste your Final Assessment results into an email message and send to me at mstuffler@ivc.edu.  This email should tell me that you have viewed the Online Video Orientation,  you have completed the Blackboard Orientation and include your Final Assessment results, you have finished all the steps to get started in the course, and let me know that you understand the three course deadlines.      

 NOTE:  If you have previously taken a Blackboard course, you do not need to complete the Blackboard Orientation or Final Assessment, but must complete the other steps shown above. 

 BLACKBOARD COURSE DESIGN 

 1.      Announcements are used to communicate general updates, assignments, changes and due dates for Labs and exams.

 2.      Email instructor provides a link that you may copy into an email to me.

 3.       Exam Reviews outline key concepts to be tested and describe short answer questions, if any. 

 4.                Lab Submission is where you will submit your answers for each Lab assignment.  Make sure that you answer precisely, only what is asked and use the number of decimals specified. 

 5.      MegaStat User Guide provides a reference tool for your questions about the functions of the statistical analysis software that we use for this course. 

 6.      My Grades allows you to access your scores for Lab submissions and Exams.    

 7.      Student Blog allows you to post a message and communicate with your classmates.

 8.      Syllabus with Course Schedule on the last page(s) may be accessed from this link.  Remember, the first page of this syllabus contain important links and telephone numbers you will need for this course.   The last page(s) of this syllabus contains the course schedule.

 9.      Textbook Resources contain printable PowerPoint lectures, a Solutions Manual, and Lab assignments for each chapter.  There may also be Instructor Lifelines to help with some of the more challenging material.          

 GRADING 

The course covers 14 textbook chapters with your grade being based on 2 exams and 14 lab assignments for a total of 245 points. 

On-campus Exam 1                                                                            40 points  =  15.0%
On-campus Exam 2                                                                            40 points  =  15.0%

14 Lab Assignments:
 

Lab 1   Introduction To Excel And Add-Ins             10 points
Lab 2   Random Numbers And Chart Wizard            15 points
Lab 3   Descriptive Statistics                               20 points
Lab 4   Counting Rules And Probability                   10 points
Lab 5   The Big 3 Discrete Probability Distributions
          And Expected Value Applications                10 points
Lab 6   Continuous Probabilities                                   15 points
Lab 7   Sampling Methods And Distributions            10 points|
Lab 8   Confidence Intervals And Sample Size         15 points
Lab 9   One-Sample Hypothesis Test                     15 points
Lab 10  Two-Sample Hypothesis Test                    15 points
Lab 11  Analysis Of Variance (Anova)                    10 points
Lab 12 Chi Square                                              10 points
Lab 13 Linear Regression Analysis                          10 points
Lab 14 Multiple Regression Analysis                        20 points       185 points =  70%

 

                              Total Points                                                                265 points =  100%

Your final course grade is based on the percent you earn of the 245 total points:    

                            A  220-245 points (90% or higher)               
                            B  195-219 points (80% but less than 90%)
                            C  170-194 points (70% but less than 80%)
                            D  145-169 points (60% but less than 70%)
                            F  < 145 points (Less than 60% or for cases of academic dishonesty)

If you are one or two points, not percent, away from the next higher letter grade, you will earn the higher letter grade.  Thus, you should not worry about some mistakes that cost you a few points.  Students taking this class for Credit/No Credit should receive 70% or more of the total possible points to obtain credit for the class. 

 The instructor retains graded materials for 90 days after grades have been posted.  If you wish to review these materials, you must contact the instructor before this date.

 ASSIGNMENTS AND PARTICIPATION

 For each chapter, you should complete the following assignment:

 1.      Read the textbook chapter, review the PowerPoint slides in Blackboard (BB) or the narrated slides at the Bowerman OLC, and view the Instructor Lifeline video (if available).  Review the guided examples and the MegaStat Tutorials at Bowerman OLC.  Complete the practice quizzes at Bowerman OLC.

 2.      Complete several exercises in each chapter section.  Compare your answers to the Solutions Manual shown in Textbook Resources for each chapter of your BB course and go through any exercises that you may have done incorrectly.  Your incorrect exercises tell you where you need more study and more practice.  It is also critical that you have practice with MegaStat and use MegaStat with precision so that you do not lose points on the graded Lab Assignments.    

 3.       Carefully read the Lab Assignment and replicate the examples to reinforce the course material, learn topics not covered in the textbook, and become comfortable using MegaStat for each application.  

 If you are having problems grasping a concept, make sure that you have completed Steps 1-3 using all the online resources available.  You may need to reread the chapter and complete more section exercises to practice and master these concepts.  Make sure that you use the Solutions Manual to check your answers.  If you have taken these steps and still do not understand what you are doing wrong, then contact me by email or during my office hours.

 4.                 Complete the Lab Assignment and write your answers on the Answer Sheet which is the last page(s) of the Lab Assignment.  Transfer your Lab answers from your handwritten Answer Sheet in the Lab Submission section of Bb.  To avoid grading errors, be careful to provide only the information requested and use the number of decimals specified in the Lab answers.  

 You may only submit your Lab answers once.  You may not redo any Lab Assignments.  Given that Labs represent 76% of your course grade, be sure that you have completed steps 1-3 and have prepared your Lab Answer Sheet prior to submitting any Lab Assignment. 

  ON-CAMPUS EXAMS 

There are two On-Campus Exams which are multiple-choice, true-false, and/or short-answer.  The exams will cover concepts rather than lengthy computations using long formulas.  You will not need to memorize a long list of formulas.  However, if a basic formula is required, then the Exam Review will tell you that you need to know that specific basic formula or that you will need to be able to complete a simple basic calculation.  While these exams are not comprehensive, the material in this course tends to be cumulative.  

 Exam reviews outline key concepts to be tested and describe short answer question(s), if any.  These Exam Reviews are available in your Bb course.  Make sure to go over the exam review in detail to prepare for each exam.   

 You will have two opportunities to complete each exam.  Your course schedule shows these dates, times and the classroom that will be used for the exams.  You must bring a photo ID, a Scantron form 882, a number two pencil and an eraser to each exam.  If you do not show a picture ID, you will not be allowed to complete the exam.   I do not give make-up exams for any reason.  However, if you cannot come to campus or do not wish to complete the exams on the dates and times shown on the course schedule, I am happy to provide an alternative.   

 You may use the IVC Testing Center to complete either or both of your on-campus exams prior to the course deadline shown on the course schedule.   Please go to www.ivc.edu/testing to access information about the Center’s days and hours of operation or you may call (949) 451-5468.  The Testing Center personnel already have copies of your two exams so that you may arrange with them to complete either or both of your exams at the IVC Testing Center. 

 You do not need to let me know, it is your responsibility to contact them directly and schedule your exam.  You will have up to two hours for each exam and will not be able to use books or notes, but will be able to use an instructor-provided basic calculator.  Remember to bring a Scantron form 882, a number 2 pencil and an eraser.  If you choose to use the IVC Testing Center, you will be required to pay a $15 fee for a two hour exam.  The Testing Center is a for-profit enterprise on the IVC campus that is separate from Irvine Valley College.

 If you complete an exam at the IVC Testing Center, they will send me your test and Scantron.   I will post your exam score to your Bb grades as soon as possible.  If you take an exam after the first regularly scheduled exam date, then your score will not be posted until I am back on campus which may not be until I give the second exam.  

 You may choose to complete your two on-campus exams on the regularly scheduled dates shown on your course schedule or at the IVC Testing Center on dates that you select.  To clarify, I do not care when you complete either exam, but both must be completed no later than the deadline date and time shown in your course schedule.  There are no exceptions to this course requirement; you must complete both exams on campus no later than the date and time shown in the course schedule. 

Each student must complete both exams by the deadline date and time shown in the course schedule or earn an F grade for the course.
   

 NOTE:  If you decide to drop the course, it is your responsibility to drop the course through Admissions and Records.  Deadlines for dropping courses are shown in the IVC class schedule in the Important Dates link at the top of the IVC Class Schedule.  Any student who does not complete the course, or does not complete both exams and does not drop the course will earn the grade of "F".          

 EXTRA CREDIT 

Each exam will contain about 15 points of extra credit.  Do not ask me which question(s) are for extra credit, they are no specific extra credit questions.  There will just be About 45 possible points on each exam.  You are to answer all questions on each exam.  Please do not email me to ask me for more extra credit or for another assignment to do for extra points.  There will be no other extra credit points or extra assignments given.  

 The total points earned for each exam will include the extra credit points that you earned and may be accessed in your My Grades in Bb.  You must do your best work on the 14 Lab Assignments and the two on-campus exams because they are the only sources of points for this course.   

LAB ASSIGNMENTS 

 There are 14 Lab Assignments with each typically covering one textbook chapter.  The Lab assignments may be accessed through Bb Textbook Resources.  The course schedule shows the recommended completion date for each Lab Assignment.   You may use your book, all online resources and notes for these Lab Assignments.  You must complete each lab independently and may not work with other students on these assignments.  You are on your honor to complete each Lab Assignment and submission by yourself and keep the information to yourself.  Sharing Lab Assignment information with other individuals is considered cheating and may cause you to fail the class.   

 While you may complete the Lab Assignments at your own pace, remember Labs 1-6 and 7-14 must be submitted prior to the two deadline dates shown in the course schedule.  There are no exceptions to these course deadlines for any reason.  Lab submissions are very important because they represent 76% of your course grade.   

You are cautioned not to wait until the last few minutes on the deadline dates because there are many unforeseen events that may prevent you from finishing by the required deadline causing you to lose valuable points.  These unforeseen events range from power failures, to Bb locking you out of the Lab submission, to failure of your computer or software.  Please try to keep current with the course schedule to gain the benefit from these assessments and to avoid getting behind in the course.   

Make sure to allow plenty of time for each one of the Lab Assignments, because these scores represent 76% of your course grade.  You are allowed only one submission for each lab and must finish each lab submission once you have started.  Your Labs are automatically scored and you will be able to view your grade immediately upon completion by selecting My Grades in Bb. 

CAUTION:  You should review your results to learn areas that require more study and to double check the computer scoring.  If you feel that you completed the Lab correctly and entered your answers in the correct format, but were scored incorrectly, please email me with the specific question numbers that you would like me to recheck.  I will do so and make any necessary adjustments.   

STRATEGIES FOR SUCCESS 

To succeed in this course, you should complete these steps:

 1.       Login to course a minimum of twice a week, read any new announcements and review the course schedule for the assigned material for that week.  If you have not logged in recently, click on View All to read any announcements you may have missed. 

 2.       Pick out specific days and times that you can schedule time to study.  Try not to rely on a
 computer at work where you might not be able to consistently login during business hours.   

 3.        Set aside plenty of time each week for this course.  Remember, even though you are not driving
  to campus to take this course, you still need to dedicate at least the same amount of time required
  in a traditional classroom setting.   

This three unit course with 2.5 hours of lecture and 1.5 hours of lab taught over 16 weeks requires an average of 12 hours per week in home study.  While some chapters may be easier, others may be more challenging and may require more study time.  Of course, the advantage you have with an online course is that you can schedule your time to meet your needs. 

 4.      Carefully complete each chapter assignment in a timely manner using all of the available resources including;  the textbook, PowerPoint slides, guided examples, practice quizzes, MegaStat Tutorials, detailed Lab examples and Instructor Lifelines (videos).   

 5.       Do not get behind the course schedule.  If you do get behind, catch up as soon as possible to increase your probability of success in this course.

  6.       If you have used all of the available resources and are still having difficulties with the material,
           go to the Student Blog and post a question for your classmates.  Check back to the Student Blog
          to review responses to your questions.   Remember, your Lab assignments are to be solely your work
         and not a collaborative effort.   Contact me for help by email or attend my office hours.  If my office
          hours, do not work for your schedule, we can meet on campus at an agreed upon time and date.

7.       Before each on-campus exam, go through the exam review to make sure you emphasize the material that will be on your exam and to prepare for short answer questions, if any.   

8.       Be patient!  It takes time and practice to master statistics principles.  You will find this course
          material demanding and challenging to learn regardless if it is taught in a traditional classroom or
         in the distance education modality.   

 

HONESTY AND INTEGRITY  

 Honesty and integrity are very important in higher education.  This standard pertains to what is created as well as, to what is spoken or written.  To claim to have created something that is not entirely your own work is a violation of academic and personal integrity.  Cheating is the unauthorized giving or receiving of information in examinations, quizzes, Lab assignments or other exercises.  If someone else completes Lab Assignments in your name or works with you to complete Lab Assignments, this is considered cheating and will result in the student earning an “F” in the course.  The instructor will file a report with the Dean of Students to record your Academic Dishonesty.   Students should read and understand this syllabus, the criteria for Academic Dishonesty discussed here, and review the Student Code of Conduct in the IVC class schedule.  

 INSTRUCTOR COMMITMENT 

 Other than the two on-campus exams, there are no live class discussions scheduled for this course. However, I will be available during my office hours and by email.  Please refer to the first page of this syllabus for times and methods for contacting me.     

 As your instructor, I will give you the respect that I ask you to give to me and the other members of this class.  I will follow the course schedule as shown in this syllabus.  If any changes are required I will announce them well in advance to give you time to adjust.  I will do my best to help you be successful in this course.  You can count on my availability during office hours, and you have the right to expect prompt responses to your questions, comments, and requests.  I try to check my email at least once a day, but remember I am busy teaching on campus on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  I will grade your work with accuracy and in a timely manner.  I will double check the exam scoring for any erasures to ensure the accuracy of your exam score.  If there is a highly missed question, I will dump that question and give each student credit for an extra correct question (regardless whether or not they missed the dumped question).  After an exam, I will post your score ASAP to your grade record.  In this distance learning course, you will receive at least the same attention and care you would find in a traditional class. 

 STUDENT COMMITMENT 

Given that you have made an informed choice to enroll for this course, you should allocate adequate time each week for reading the course materials, working with the online resources, solving practice exercises, and completing the Lab Assignments.  You will be responsible for keeping up to date with all Labs and the two on-campus exams.   

Remember, you are solely responsible for the completion of the course requirements.  Each chapter and lab assignment, computer activity, and exam is your task to complete in a responsible and timely manner. 
If you follow the steps shown in this syllabus and complete the course material by the dates shown on the course schedule, you should have a successful experience taking this online course.  Online courses are very different from face-to-face (traditional) classes.  Students who are successful in taking online courses are highly organized, self-motivated and excellent time managers who are able to stay on schedule and are able to catch up if they get behind. The instructor does not drop students from the course.  If you decide to drop the course, it is your responsibility to drop the course through Admissions and Records.  Deadlines for dropping courses are shown in the class schedule.  Any student who does not complete the course and does not drop the course will earn the grade of "F".

 ONLINE ETIQUETTE 

 Online etiquette is extremely important.  We must show respect to one another at all times.  You should be respectful of your fellow students and your instructor at all times.  Rudeness and disrespect will not be tolerated in this course.  Please recognize that communication is rather “flat” online where we cannot see and hear each other.  So be cautious when using sarcasm or negative statements. Familiarize yourself with “smileys” or other online icons that show emotion, so that you lessen the risk of offending the person with whom you are trying to communicate.  Whenever possible, give constructive criticism and treat others the way you would like to be treated.  The communications within this class should stay within it.  Like any class, we are a community and we need to treat each other with respect.

  TECHNICAL PROBLEMS AND EMERGENCIES 

If you have an emergency, have a problem with a Lab submission, or are unable to use your personal computer for any reason, please email me as soon as possible. 

If you are having Blackboard access problems, please contact IVC Blackboard Help Desk.  

If you can't connect to the Internet, call your Internet service provider.  

Contact Blackboard Help Desk or the IVC Help Desk for problems registering or logging in, accessing your course, or for any other system problems.  

Call McGraw Hill Customer Support for problems with the Bowerman OLC site, and purchasing or installing MegaStat software.    

 This course requires you to have a computer, an Internet service provider and Internet access.  If for any reason you lose the use of any of these resources, it is your responsibility to find another source so that you are able to complete the requirements of this course.   

 

Good luck and have a great experience

 during your online Business and Economics Statistics course!
