Q001: CIS 701 QUIZ 01 PROF. AUCIELLO EXPLANATION: This lesson-quiz represents some 'break-through' thinking: For example, we are working on the premise that the student is a committed and active 'participant' in the learning process; and work is migrating to the Web that can delivers instruction, provide 'forums', enable critical-thinking and and research, uses 'peer-learning' principles, and provides 'positive-attendance' and highly interactive, participative environment that can function synchronously (real-time) or asynchronously (anytime, anywhere)! Therefore, these quizzes are non-threatening. The rules are that you must respond to each question, and that you will compare and discuss your answers with other students or instructor, ("team learning") and keep re-taking the quiz until you feel that it is at the '100%' level. You will be graded on your last and best quiz. To say it another way, I am using some Form-to-File Web Technology to give you Read and Write access to a shared file (virtual discussion group based on assigned topics). Your IP address and date submitted are recorded along with your choices. Each time you submit, you can view the answers of others, and even print them out! 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. Finally, at the end of the lesson, -- when you know that you understand it -- say "Mr. A. -- I got this lesson, thank you -- and type your name. We will start now: it is meant to be an extension, an enhancement, a digital alternative to class instruction, a forum-group, an online seminar, and opportunity to improve on the High Performance Classroom concept. Please add value, and earn extra points for improving the system. 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. "PUTTING POINTS ON THE GRADE-SCOREBOARD." 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). You will earn 25 Points for each quiz passed for maximum of 1000 points. There are over 100 Projects posted under "CIS 701 - D.E." FIND THEM, AND START ANYWAY, AND DO AS MANY AS YOU CAN IN ANY ORDER THAT YOU PLEASE. (SOME STUDENTS DO THEM ALL, AND KEEP COMING BACK TO GET THE NEW ONES.) When you think that you understand the grading policy, and the 'team concept', just write: "I got this, Mr. A."

Q004: Next, I want to be sure that you can navigate inside the 'virtual classroom'. 1. Can you "check-in" electronically under "Daily Check-in"? (in Main Index) 2. Can you find the assignments under "CIS 701- D.E." -- (under "Course Index")? 3. Take a look at 'Students' Home Pages for future work, and to see the power of multi-media to communicate. Answer in the form of: "I did 1 and 2, and will look at Home Pages later." or something.
