In so doing, it familiarizes students with the world historical perspective, both its inherent strengths and weaknesses. Assessment The assessments in this course consist of four online examinations taken through WebCT. These assessments will be part multiple choice, part short answer (not more than a sentence or two), in part a nod to the compressed time scale of the four week course. None of these assessments, save the last, are comprehensive. The course uses a conventional grading scale (detailed below.) A=89.5 or better
B=79.5 to 89.49
C=69.5 to 79.49
D=59.5 to 69.49
F=59.49 or below Academic Integrity Statement Every KSU student is responsible for upholding the provisions of the Student Code of Conduct, as published in the Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogs.
