NOTE: Most assessments you only get 1 attempt EXCEPT on Units 2, 5, and 9. For Units 2, 5 and 9, you can have 2 attempts on the assessment since it is an auto-graded interactive. Please note that once you complete Unit 2,5,9 assessments a grade should be posted to Canvas immediately. If not reattempt the assignment because no exceptions will be made if you don’t monitor grades proactively. Also note that If you reattempt these a 2 nd time the grade you get on the 2 nd attempt will be averaged with the grade of your 1 st attempt. Assignments Follow the Course Schedule in this syllabus carefully to determine when each assignment is due. It is not up to the professor to remind you about dates. The first 5 assignments were designed to get you familiar with Excel. These assignments are scored automatically using a tool called SAM. If you have no background in Excel, you should follow the step- by-step instructions provided with each assignment. These assignments require you to complete a template, and these templates cannot be altered in any way or you will not get credit for that assignment. If you run into any problems with your assignments, first check out the option SAM Excel training links provided. If these are not helpful please post on the discussion board and then search the web or YouTube for Excel tutorials. As a last resort, you can message your professor and TA directly through a Piazza private message but only after you have exhausted other resources (e.g. Google, YouTube, public Piazza post) You are expected to learn Excel on your own because employers want to hire people who are problem solvers and critical thinkers. The final, and sixth graded assignment is a quiz on using SQL to manipulate data in a database.
Extra Credit Assignments There are two assignments you may complete for extra credit. The first is an introduction into HTML and CSS. For this assignment, you will build a simple webpage and host it online. HTML assignment will be peer graded using a Canvas rubric. If you submit an HTML extra credit website, you will be required to complete up to 3 peer reviews. These reviews count as 20% of your HTML extra credit grade. You may also choose to complete a Data Mining Quiz Assignment for extra credit points. NOTE: Participation in extra credit can only improve one’s grade, it can’t hurt your grade. Points earned on the extra credit just gets added to your overall earned points that will be divided by the 1250 possible. Course Schedule for Graded Assessments and Assignments Following this schedule will ensure you complete the course on time.
