Visit our writing resources page for more information on professional writing and technical communication skills. In order to mitigate any issues with your computer and online assessments, it is very important that you take the "Practice Quiz" from each computer you will be using to take your graded quizzes and exams. It is your responsibility to make sure your computer meets the minimum hardware requirements . Please note assessments in this course are not compatible with mobile devices and should not be taken through a mobile phone or a tablet. If you need further assistance please contact FIU Online Support Services . There will be a total of 5 quizzes based on the required readings for each week (see course schedule for due dates of the quizzes and weekly folders for uploaded readings). The value of each quiz is 10 points. 10 points times 5 is 50 points, so the quizzes count as 50% of your total grade. Take these quizzes seriously. Each quiz will have a total of 5 questions. Students will have 50 minutes to complete each quiz. (NOTE: every quiz will have also one extra credit question worth 2 points). This gives a student 10 minutes for each question (not including the extra credit question). Each quiz will be due on Friday by 11: 55pm (see course schedule for specific due dates). Before you take a quiz, make certain you have read all the required readings. I will not quiz students on all the readings. However, students never know which readings I will quiz them on. While taking the quizzes, students should have access to all the readings. The quizzes evaluate a student’s reading comprehension and his/her ability to analysis the documents. Grades for quizzes will be posted one week after the due date. Keep in mind that forum discussions are public, and care should be taken when determining what to post. The approximate length for forum discussions posts and responses will be 50 to 100 words. For each week, each student will have 1 post and 2 responses (that is, 150-300 words in total for each week). Always keep copies of all your posts and responses for your personal records. Forum discussions will be based on weekly readings and documentaries. Students will have access to all forum discussions. However, points will be deducted for late participation in weekly forum discussions. Forum discussions will be evaluated on creativity of analysis of weekly readings. The grading of forum discussions will be calculated at the end of the semester.
