Academic Environment

In the RRU classrooms, we have one main expectation of everyone: Participation. We want to hear your opinion, ideas, and thoughts. We encourage you to speak up. If you don’t agree with something, we want you to say something. This is critical thinking and it is required at the university level, but it’s a skill that will benefit you for the rest of your life.

University is hard work and requires effective teamwork to complete the assignments to an acceptable level. We want to bring great minds together, to give you the best learning experience possible. And we’re looking forward to hearing what you have to say.

Academic Evaluation

We want you to gain as much as possible from your time at RRU, so we look at your performance a few different ways. By choosing a variety of assessment methods, we’re able to help you improve your areas of opportunity, and excel in the methods you have already refined. Some of the areas you may be evaluated on include:

  • presentations
  • written assignments
  • mid-term and final exams
  • homework
  • team evaluation
  • self evaluation
  • project
  • quizzes
  • class participation
  • attendance        

Each instructor will use their own method to evaluate your progress, and your final mark is usually a combination of several smaller projects you (and/or your team) will complete during the course.
