SELF-TESTING QUIZZES

Quizzes are designed to prepare you for the proctored exams.  You will see many of the same questions on the quizzes and exams.   The quizzes are worth 11% of your grade.  They require some special instructions as noted below.  You will find the quizzes in your In Box along with the other assignment forms (labeled as "Week 1 -- Quiz", etc.).

Quizzes consist of multiple choice and/or short-answer questions (usually 15) on the week's reading, video and lab assignments.   Unlike other assignments, the quizzes are timed -- you have 30 minutes to complete each one.  You will only have permission to take each quiz once.  Each quiz, of course, is "open-book" but be aware that you may not have time to complete the quizzes if you rely on looking up answers rather than remembering them from your homeworks and reading.

Also, the quizzes behave differently than other assignments.  Only one question will appear at a time.  You must answer this question in order for the second one to appear.  This method insures that, if you are "booted out" because of a computer connection problem or mistaken click, you will be able to re-enter the quiz and continue where you left off without jeopardizing the assessment process (no student will be able to change answers or look ahead at questions unfairly).  You need to email me immediately if this happens!

Finally, be sure to READ the instructions on the "Quiz Introduction" page before you "Begin Quiz" (and start the 30 minute clock).  You will want to understand how the green and red dots work to verify that you have answered all questions.

FINALLY, HERE IS AN IMPORTANT WARNING:  IF YOU USE THE SCROLL BUTTON TO ROLL UP OR DOWN A WEB PAGE, BE SURE THAT YOU DON'T SCROLL TO ANOTHER ANSWER CHOICE BY MISTAKE BEFORE SAVING IT.  IF YOU SELECT "a" BUT THEN SCROLL DOWN, YOUR SELECTION MIGHT SCROLL TO "b" or "c" ETC.  Several of us have answered the questions one way, but accidentally scrolled to other choices before saving the answer.
