Next week we have our first quiz on Wednesday, May 26. It was scheduled to begin at 9:05, but it appears that your Perio exam that morning may last until 9:30 or so. So I’m changing our quiz start time to 10:10 to give you guys a little time to finish Perio, take a deep breath, get a coffee, scream, whatever.
You can see the new start time for the quiz on our Lectures page. Fortunately we had two lecture slots that day, which made it easy to swap them around. So now we’ll have optional office hours in the first slot (from 9:05 – 9:55), and we’ll have our quiz in the second slot (from 10:10 – 11:00).
The quizzes in this course will each be worth 15 points towards your total score. We’ll use Kahoot as our quiz platform, and we’ll do the quizzes live over Zoom. If you want more information about how grades are calculated, you can find that on our About page, which also has a link to our syllabus.
You can check out some practice Kahoots on our Kahoots page if you want to brush up on how Kahoot works. Also, these quizzes are open-book (so feel free to use your lecture notes/ppts during the quiz), and you can talk with each other about your thought process with each question, or about why you feel a particular answer is right/wrong. Normally, we’d be doing these in the classroom, and that works really well for discussing things with the people around you. Now we’re virtual – but you can still chat with each other even if you’re not in the same room!
Let me know if you have any other questions about Wednesday’s quiz. Or about anything else, for that matter.
