Raw scores for final quiz Evaluation
To receive credit for the course you needed to
get at least half of the question on the final quiz correct. There will be
25-30 questions on the quiz. The quiz is based on questions each
speaker answers during their talk. It will be multiple choice and you must
bring a standard (scantron) answer form with you to record your answers on.
The quiz is closed book/closed notes
Videos of each talk will be available on the course Canvas site, via Panopto.
Please be warned that while we will do everything in our power to ensure
high quality videos are available for each seminar, the nature of the shared
lecture hall means that sometimes microphones do not work or are just missing.
In those cases, audio may not be available.
