13. Quizzes and Exams

Quizzes are diagnostic, a type of formative assessment, designed to help you assess the quality of your studying in this course. If you are completing the reading and doing the work in the study guide, then you will have no problem with the quizzes. If, however, you are behind in your studies and not spending the kind of time you need to be spending in this course, then your quiz scores will suffer.

Exams assess your knowledge and understanding of the course materials in a more summative fashion. They provide an evaluation of your learning of the materials in a particular segment of the course. While exams are designed to gauge what you learned, they can help you learn as well. By going back through an exam once you have taken it, you may discover things you missed and figure out how to better study the new materials that follow.

Ten (10) online quizzes worth 30 points each will be given this semester. You may earn a maximum of 300 points taking quizzes in this course. All quizzes are multiple choice questions based on the video episodes and the textbook (see below). You will have 30 minutes to complete a quiz from the moment you click on Begin Quiz. Each quiz will consist of ten (10) questions. Quizzes may be taken as many times as you wish during the week in which they occur, however, quiz questions will vary each time you take the quiz. You must wait one hour between attempts, however. In addition, no makeup quizzes will be given. If you miss a quiz, you lose the points. The highest score earned for a quiz will be counted. Correct answers for quizzes wil not be given. You will have to answer a question correctly to learn its correct answer.

Four online exams and a comprehensive online final exam worth 100 points each will be given this semester. Exams cover the materials listed in the course syllabus. You may earn a maximum of 500 points taking exams in this course. All exams will consist of multiple choice, matching, short answer, essay and skills-based questions. For online exams, you will have 90 minutes to complete the exam from the moment you click on Begin Quiz. Online exams may be taken up to three times but the scores will be averaged. Also, you must wait 24 hours between attempts and exam questions will vary with each attempt. After you complete an exam, you will be able to see your score and the questions you missed. However, you will not be given the correct answers for the exam until after the exam period is over. There are no makeup exams for any reason whatsoever.

Quizzes and Exams will be available starting at 1205AM Monday at the start of the week in which they occur and ending at 1155PM Sunday in the week in which they occur. All online quizzes and exams will be delivered on our Fullerton College WebCT course site, http://webct.fullcoll.edu:8900.

Quizzes and exams follow the schedule provided in the Course Syllabus.
