Unformatted text preview: essays will be determined by the professors (that’s us) through a random draw. We’ll wait a few days for the class roster to stabilize, but should have your due dates by Friday, January 24. In determining your topics and due dates, we will try to spread the assignments out; that is, if we determine that you are in the group with papers due February 5, we will try to insure that you are not assigned to the next paper group (e.g., February 12). Thus, you will have at least two weeks between due dates. You will receive your essay prompt two weeks prior to the essay’s due date via email. Although we anticipate having a very large class, we will make every effort to have your papers back to you, with grades and comments, within two weeks of the due dates. Quizzes The quizzes will be multiple- choice exams, administered online at the beginning of each Monday class. You will have fifteen minutes to answer fifteen questions. Each question will have four to five response options, and there may be some with “all of the above” or “none of the above” as options (so read carefully!). The questions will be based on lectures, readings, and other sources associated with the class. Given the course schedule, we expect to administer 13 quizzes over the semester, and will allow each student to drop their three low scores. If you miss a quiz for any reason, it will almost certainly be one of the scores that you drop. Because of this policy, we will not allow make- up quizzes. Please note that even if your video stream does not work, you are still expected to take the quiz. It is your responsibility to make sure that you have a working internet connection and that your computer meets the specified technical requirements. Failure on the part of the student to meet the technical requirements during a quiz means that the student will not be allowed to make- up the quiz. Students who add the class late—and perhaps miss a quiz—will be held to this policy. Answers to quizzes will be discussed only in office hours. Other Exercises and Activities The exercises and surveys will be offered in- class and out- of- class at different points during the semester. All out- of- class exercises will be accessed via the Modules page....
