Final Exam

 

Assessment Strategies:

  • *Online Practice Quizzes: approx' one for every
    lesson; assesses student's understanding of the lesson which student then
    reviews;
  • Guided Practice text book assignments 
    (student completes work and self-assesses using answer key at back of text
    book)
  • *Quizzes: approx' one for every lesson; assesses
    student's completion and understanding of the Guided Practice assignment
    for one lesson;
  • *Assignments: assess student for one section;
    student completes assignment in yellow pages at back of book, then enters
    the answers through moodle quiz
  • *Practice Tests: student completes online (longer
    and harder than a section test)
  • *Section Tests: final assessment for a section

* indicates that these are completed online through a program called Moodle Quiz.  Student
uses Firefox as the internet browser.  Questions are online (can be written down on paper) completed and then answer selected or entered online.  It has auto-save so all answers are automatically saved. 
Student can quit the program at any time (except tests), log off and then log in and continue from anywhere and continue an unlimited number of times.  Upon completion student selects "Finish attempt..."  and "Submit all and finish". Student will immediately receives a grade.  Student can select "Show all questions one page" in top right corner.  Student can then review all the questions, corrections, and feedback (step by step how-to).
