A pictureEvery week, I ask that you provide a summary post in this area about specific items that you have learned in the past week. So for the Week 3 Weekly Summary, topics will be from information learned from Week 3. I will list some items, and you can pick one and comment on it. The post will count as extra credit. The Weekly Summary is not mandatory to complete and will not impact your course final grade if not completed. This is the only Extra Credit offered in Advanced Biology; and all students are highly encouraged to complete it every other week.

The Weekly Summary is to be directly typed [copied and pasted] into the Week 3 Weekly Summary Submission Area. In order, to be eligible for the full amount of extra credit points, it should be a well thought out full paragraph in your own words, at least 150 words. Any information used from an outside resource, REFERENCES, is required to be properly cited per APA requirements, with both in-text citations and a full reference citation. [Note: Directly quoted materials or the references are not included in the word count.]

In order to be eligible for the full amount of the extra credit, the code word(s) discussed during the Keiser Live Class for Week 3 are also required to be posted with your Weekly Summary Assignment.

Per Keiser University Policy, Extra Credit cannot be more than 2% of the course total; therefore the maximum that can be earned for each Weekly Summary is 0.5 points (for a maximum of 2 points for completion of all 4 Weekly Summaries). The allotment of Weekly Summary Extra Credit is as follows: 20% [0.1 points] – grammar/spelling and meeting the minimum word count, 20% [0.1 points] – posting Code Words from Keiser Live Class and 60% [0.3 points] content for a maximum total Extra Credit, 100% = 0.5 points.

The Weekly Summary is due by 11:59 p.m. ET Sunday of Week 3.
