End of Semester Extra Credit – Spring 2018
It’s that time of the semester again. Many students are looking for opportunities for extra credit to improve their grades. I generally don’t like the idea of “extra credit” but occasionally offer it as a reward to students who attend lectures consistently and who are willing to do some extra work beyond what is assigned.
Here’s the deal:
I will post an Extra Credit Quiz on ReggieNet at 10:00 AM on May 9th – after our final exam. Note, you will NOT receive an email announcing it has been posted. It will remain open for 48 hours (until 10:00 AM on Friday the 11th). This quiz will be approximately 20 questions long, timed, and be worth a maximum of 10 points.
The material for this quiz will come from various web-based resources (podcasts, videos, blog posts, etc) which I’ve compiled on my site under the tag: “Soc106”. So if/when you would like to get started reading and listening to the material for this quiz, you can find it by searching for “Soc106” or clicking the “Soc106” button below.
This opportunity should be viewed truly as extra credit. It is a relatively small number of points that will involve a fair amount of time on your part to prepare for. I urge you to prioritize your preparation for the final exam and use this only when you need a study break or after you complete the final.
