There will be homeworks and quizzes dispersed throughout the course. Homeworks are intended to be interesting prompts. Quizzes are intended to be a quick, easy screen designed for you to demonstrate you completed your readings for the current week’s topic. They will mainly be in the form of multiple choice questions, and you will only have a limited number of tries per question. Homeworks and quizzes will both be worth 30% of your total grade.
There will also be Quick Checks, which are multiple choice questions designed to check your understanding directly following a lecture video or reading. You will have an unlimited number of tries per question. Correct completion of all Quick Checks will be worth another 30% of your total grade.
There is also a participation grade. If you actively ask questions and contribute to discussions, you can expect a full score. Participation will be worth 10% of your total grade.
Keep in mind that the purpose of this course is to learn! So as long as you put in the effort to understand the material, you do not need to worry about your grade!
