101 iCLICKER POLICIES GRADING You will use the iClicker system to answer Multiple Choice questions during the Zoom lectures. Some questions will just be for practice, or used to measure the initial class knowledge of a topic; those questions will have time limits of 30-45 seconds. Other answers will be graded; those questions will have time limits of 60 seconds. Correct answers will receive 3 points and incorrect answers will receive 2 points; so there is a very small penalty for an incorrect answer. You will need a small hand calculator to answer some MC questions; please have one available for each lecture. START DATE For the first two lectures, all iClicker questions will be considered practice questions, as you learn to use the iClicker system. Beginning TUE Aug 31, at least some iClicker questions will be graded. Even if your iClicker system works during class, your grades will not be passed to my online gradebook unless you have properly registered it at https://student.iclicker.com. The instructions for registering for iClicker are available at our iClicker Registration page. WEIGHTING There are expected to be about 150 graded iClicker questions over the course of the semester, so about 450 iC points will be possible. However, 380 iC points (or about 85% of all possible iC points should there be more or less than 150 questions) are all that are required to receive an overall iClicker grade of 100%; i.e. your iClicker percentage is your total iC points divided by 380 with a maximum of 100%. Your iClicker percentage for the semester will count 10% of your overall class grade. CLICKER MALFUNCTION Since you only have to get 85% of all possible iC points in order to receive a iClicker grade of 100%, there are no make ups for missed iClicker questions for any reason. You must be both attending the lecture (either via Zoom or in person), and also answering the clicker questions via iClicker, in order to get iClicker credit for that lecture. CHEATING YOU MUST USE ONLY YOUR iClicker ACCOUNT AND NO OTHER. Sharing of iClicker accounts is a case of academic dishonesty, just exactly like cheating on a test. Any and all students involved in any such incidents will automatically receive an E for the course, and may be referred to the Dean for further sanctions.
