Directions for using the CDs are given below. Your computer must have a CD-ROM and internet in
order to be successful in using the CD’s.
The course you are taking is a
hybrid course using CD ROM and Internet technology to deliver
the course. The text we use is "Principles of Anatomy &
Physiology" 12th edition by Tortora and Derrickson.
Instructions for ordering the text can accessed at the online
bookstore at the following address:
that you read the syllabus for the course, which can be accessed
through the CD or by Internet. The address to access the syllabus

A study guide is available for the course.
This Study Guide has all of the notes for the course. The Study
Guide is available to you by an ebook via email. The Study Guide
can be sent to you as a pdf file by email attachment. You can

Read your syllabus carefully. There are due dates for exams,
quizzes, case studies and summary papers that cannot be
overlooked. Your grade may suffer for handing in late
work. I have found that work handed in late is usually not as good
a quality as when it is handed in on time. To insure your highest
quality work, we do ask that you make every attempt to keep up to
the assignment dates as close as you possibly can. Work submitted
late may be only eligible to receive half of the points
possible for that assignment.
first thing you will need to do is to complete the online survey
which can be accessed from the Advanced Physiology Home Page.
sure you are complete and accurate with this survey. Again
filling out the survey immediately is imperative. I will
give 10 extra credit points for completing the survey. Your
proctor information will be gleaned from the survey. I will need
that in order to send the exams to your proctor. Be sure to read
the information on the survey regarding the selection of your
course will require you to provide a volunteer who will agree to
serve as your proctor for Unit exams. This individual should be
someone who will be available for you at the times that you are
required to take the exams. This individual will need to supply
their time in proctoring the exam and also must send the
completed exams to the instructor. The proctor cannot be a
family member. Local teachers, counselors, or administrators
would be acceptable. The instructor will need the name, address,
phone #, e-mail address and relation or position that your
proctor holds. You can supply this information by filling out
and submitting the student survey. The student will be required
to incur any costs involved in sending the exams to the
instructor for correction. Approval of a proctor rests
completely with the instructor. Upon approval the exams will be
sent to the proctor.
The college (i.e. course instructor) may allow supervised tests
and assessments to be administered by an approved test proctor
at an alternate site. Proctors have a responsibility to ensure
testing situations and should have no vested interest in student
success on the exam.
The college reserves the right to verify proctor qualifications,
require additional evidence of eligibility, or require a
different proctor be selected. The student is responsible for
selecting a qualified proctor who then must be approved by the
course instructor. Individuals who are eligible for approval
include: College or public librarians, high school or college
faculty, college testing or learning centers, or education
officers in the military. Individuals who may NOT serve as
proctors, regardless of other qualifications, are relatives,
friends, neighbors, tutors, work supervisors, co-workers,
clergy, or coaching staff.
Falsifying proctor information or not following proctor testing
procedures is considered a violation of the NCTC Student Code of
Conduct and the student may be subject to college sanction (i.e.
suspension) or course failure.
The student will be required to incur any costs involved in
sending the exams to the instructor for correction. As well any
payments made to a proctor for their services will be the
responsibility of the student in their entirety. Approval of a
proctor rests completely with the instructor.
recommended process for finishing each unit is described below.
