The Quiz Rules
There will be no amendments, corollaries or other
variants of these rules, unless approved by yours truly.
1.Quizzes will be on the designated days, and will be an hour long, but they will be accessible for a period of about nine hours on the scheduled days, to give you some flexibility on when to take the exam.
2.Exams are open book, open notes and open laptops.
3.Exams are NOT group work. You cannot consult with, talk to, communicate with or pass telepathic (or text) messages to anyone else in or out of the class. There are no cultural exceptions.
4.Each quiz is worth 10%.
5.If you miss a quiz for good reason, the 10% weight on that quiz will be reallocated across your remaining exams (quizzes and final). You cannot weight prior quizzes more.
6.If you take all three quizzes, the score on your worst quiz will be pushed up to the average score across all of your other exams (the other two quizzes and the final exam) (Note: It will not be thrown out). If you miss a quiz, you will not have this option, even if you miss the quiz for good reason.
7.The quizzes will be multiple choice. That is not optimal, and I apologize in advance, but open ended quizzes online, for a class of this size, is too daunting for me. If you have a beef with the grading (and I do make mistakes), please come to me.
