101 Quiz Policies

Quizzes will be given during the first 10-15 minutes of each 
recitation according to the schedule.  Quizzes will be given
at WebAssign, and will require a pdf submission.  There are a
total of 7 quizzes during the semester.  Quiz topics are given
in the schedule.  You will need a small hand calculator for
the quizzes.

         What can you do if you must miss a recitation
                 in which a quiz is given?
                 Read the paragraph below.

(and only once) during the semester, you may arrange with your
TA to attend your TA's recitation at a different time during
the week.  To see what recitation times your TA is teaching,
look at the list of 101 recitations.

The highest 6 quiz scores will be counted.  If you take all 
seven quizzes, your lowest quiz score will automatically be 
dropped at the end of the semester.  If you miss a quiz, FOR 
ANY REASON, that quiz will be your drop.  Your quiz average 
will account for 10% of your final grade.

              AMENDMENT FOR FALL 2020
IN FALL 2020, two recitation quizzes will be dropped instead
of one.  If you miss a quiz, FOR ANY REASON, that quiz will
be one of your two drops.

                   QUIZ GRADING APPEALS

Quizzes will be graded by a grader.  Your graded quizzes will
appear at WebAssign approximately 1-2 weeks after you have
made your pdf submission for that quiz. If you wish to appeal
the grading of one of your quizzes, you must follow these

(1) Please DO NOT try to discuss the grading of the quiz with 
    your TA immediately after recitation.  Your quiz was not 
    graded by your TA.

(2) If you think you deserve more points on a graded quiz,
    submit an appeal IN WRITING, following the instructions
    in Section (3) below.  Explain carefully exactly why
    you deserve more points, and ask for as many points
    as you think your answer deserves.

(3) Send your written appeal, in PDF form, to Dr. Adams by
    email within two school days of receiving
    your graded quiz at WebAssign.  

(4) I will pass your appeal to the grader, who must give you
    a written reply, which will be emailed to you either
    through Dr. Adams or through your recitation TA.  If you
    are not satisfied with the grader's response to your
    appeal, then you may ask Dr. Adams to consider your
    appeal; in such cases I reserve the right to regrade
    your entire quiz.
