Q001: CIS 757 QUIZ 01 PROF. AUCIELLO This lesson-quiz represents some 'break-through' thinking: ... the premise that the student is an active 'participant' in the learning process ... highly interactive, participative environment that can function synchronously (real-time) or asynchronously (anywhere, anytime outside of class).' You must respond to each question, and compare and discuss your answers with others .. You will be graded on your last and best quiz. You are expected to build on what you read, and do more thinking and research and submit responses in your own words. In other words, learn from what you read, and improve on it, and make it yours. 1) Talking about Grading ... 4500 = A. 4000 = B. 3500 = C, etc. For every class day that you sign in and read the posted information, you will receive 50 Points (Max 200 / week). For each Project that you do, that is printed out and put in your Project Notebook, 100 Points (as many as you can do). These Projects demonstrate your Computer / Internet and document your grade. Exceptionally good web-pages can earn 200 - 400 points for each page! For Helping Another Student to complete His / Her Project, 50 Points per day (Max 200 / week). Document these points on the Extra Credit Worksheet (posted on our website). THERE ARE SOME OLD-TYPE, DOS-BASED QUIZZES (THAT I HAVE NOT YET CONVERTED TO A WEB-LANGUAGE.
