131 CPS POLICIES You will use your CPS transmitter to answer Multiple Choice questions during the lecture period. 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. You may always discuss the question with the students seated nearby, but the answer that you enter should always be your own. Correct answers will receive 1 point and incorrect answers will receive 0.7 points; so there is a very small penalty for an incorrect answer. You will need a small hand calculator to answer some quiz questions; please bring one to each lecture. For the first three lectures, all CPS questions will be considered practice questions, as you learn to use your CPS transmitters. Beginning THUR July 9, at least some CPS questions will be graded. Your CPS transmitter will not work unless you have registered it at www.einstruction.com. The instructions for registering your CPS clicker and the class codes you need for that registration are available at our CPS Information page. There are expected to be about 50 graded CPS questions over the course of the session, so about 50 CPS points will be possible. However, 45 CPS points (or about 90% of all possible CPS points should there be more or less than 50 questions) are all that are required to receive an overall CPS grade of 100%; i.e. your CPS percentage is your total CPS points divided by 0.45 with a maximum of 100%. Your CPS percentage for the session will count 5% of your overall class grade. Since you only have to get 90% of all possible CPS points in order to receive a CPS grade of 100%, there are no make ups for missed CPS questions for any reason. Exception: ONCE (and only once) during the semester, you may report to me by email that you were present in lecture but that you did not receive the proper amount of CPS points (perhaps you forgot your clicker or forgot to check the batteries). Just tell me in the email how many CPS points you deserved for that day and I will give you credit. You may only do this ONCE, and I must receive your email within one school day of the relevant lecture. YOU MUST USE ONLY THE TRANSMITTER THAT YOU REGISTER AND NO OTHER. Use of another student's transmitter 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.
