Getting Back on Track

I have returned from my arduous trip to Las Vegas and I'm now getting back on track. I have updated the Assignments and Quiz pages in Sakai and will work on the website.

There are a couple of things I think I forgot to mention in our first meeting:
  1. There are no time limits set on any of the quizzes and you may take them as many times as you like. Sakai will only remember the highest grade you achieved on a chapter quiz so if you take a quiz a second time with a lower score, Sakai will post the highest grade you earned.
  2. You may submit chapter programming projects as many times as you like. I will only grade that last one submitted.
  3. Most importantly... If you get behind or you're having trouble, talk to me. Don't just throw in the towel. People tend to be embarrassed or think the instructor doesn't care but you shouldn't. Ask questions in class, in the Forum, and if you are still lost, don't let yourself get behind. Let me know if you find yourself in the struggle mode.


Nice Add-In

Once you've installed Visual Studio, here's a nice add-in for Visual Basic: PowerPack

This is not required but it could help you in later projects.

In case you're interested...

I'm leaving this up so you can see the outcomes for the previous class. This is typcial for almost every semester. However, this semester we have a much smaller class so I suspect the results for this class will be much better.

    Class Statistics
  • The class began with 25 enrolled; 15 completed
  • There were 9 'A's or 36%.
