Karsh, Ellen, and Fox, Arlen Sue. The Only Grant-Writing Book You'll Ever Need. NOTE:  grant writing is the last segment of the course – we will start it at the end of March. The fourth edition of this book is coming out April 8; the third edition is from 2009. If you can get the third edition via Interlibrary loan or find a super-cheap copy, you might want to hold out and get the new edition, especially if you might be writing grants in the near future. However, the third edition is what I'll be using this semester.

Student Identity Verification Measures
  • All online classes are password protected. Students must provide name, date of birth, and the last four digits of their social security number, to receive an email and password from The University of South Dakota. Access to online courses are managed through USD systems only and not a student's personal email.
  • Assessment of student learning in online classes often assists in student identity verification. Many tests are proctored in person by University employees at the University's statewide higher education centers in Pierre, Rapid City, and Sioux Falls, SD and in Vermillion, SD at the Division of Continuing and Distance Education. Students in other states make application for a professional proctor in their region who is approved by The University of South Dakota in advance of testing. The Proctor Application can be found by logging into myU. Portal: Distance > Student Support > Proctor / Testing Info. University staff evaluate carefully the proposed proctors assessing potential conflicts of interest. Approved proctors verify student identity prior to each test.
  • Finally, a growing number of online courses supplement instruction with web conferencing. This technology allows the professor to further authenticate identity through voice recognition and visual recognition if webcams are used.
