Five of them
At the end of each even-numbered week we’ll have a quiz—closed book. I’ll try to have it posted by Saturday mid-day (of weeks 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10), and you’ll have until Tuesday night (midnight) to complete it. These will be timed (plenty of time—3 hrs)–once you start, you need to finish, so don’t open them up until you’re ready—that means you’ve done the readings and participated in the discussion boards. Also, make sure you have checked out any lecture material assigned before you take the quiz. There will usually be 2 to 4 questions, either short answer, multiple choice, or fill in the blank, and each quiz is worth 30 points. The quizzes are designed to have students put together what they’ve learned from readings and discussion in the previous two weeks, usually by applying information to some setting. If a question asks you to discuss then a response of 2-3 sentences won’t be sufficient to earn you full credit.
Quizzes will be worth 1/3 of your overall grade (150 pts)
