In order to help students prepare for the tests and keep up with the course material there will be twelve quizzes. The quizzes are short 10 question multiple choice exams. The quizzes will commence the third week of the course. Each weekly quiz must be completed by Friday 23:55 (11:55PM). The quizzes are Web-based on-line and may be taken any time once they are activated. A student's two lowest quiz scores will be dropped at the end of the term in determining their overall quiz average.


The following tutorial pages briefly describe the CS1044 WebCT course sub-site quiz system. Before taking an online quiz students must first work through this tutorial to learn how to use the system. (Failure to do so may result in quiz score penalties.) Press the upper right "Next Page" button to proceed through the tutorial. Clicking on the above CS 1044 WebCt course sub-site link, the C++ button or the WebCT Professor logo at right will open the CS1044 WebCT login request explained in the following page. After successfully logging on, the CS1044 WebCT pages will be opened in a separate browser window. This will allow students to take the quizzes in one window while browsing in this window.

Quizzes may only be submitted once for grading. However, students may start, stop and re-start quizzes as many times as they wish before submitting a quiz for gtading.

In addition to the following pages, there is a short one page WebCT introduction page from the Univ. of North Texas that students may read. Students may choose to visit the WebCT home page and peruse the online WebCT system documentation. However be aware that CS1044 is only using the online quiz module within WebCT. WebCT is a complete online complex course develpment system and the majority of the documentation does not apply to the CS1044 WebCT site.
