Work for the week of December 8
If you have not already done so, please fill out the Student Perceptions of Teaching (SPOT) survey for this course. I do not see the feedback until late December (after grades are submitted), and your comments are anonymous. The feedback helps the department make important decisions about teaching methods, course content, and faculty promotion. Written comments help me decide what to keep or change the next time I teach the course.
Write and submit your final exam, Project 5: Course Completion Report, by 11:59 PM on Monday, December 14, following the instructions below. There is no grace period on the exam, since course grades must be calculated and turned in.
- Go to our course in Canvas.
- Choose Assignments from the left sidebar.
- Choose the "Project 5: Course Completion Report (Final Exam)" assignment.
- Click the big Submit Assignment button on the upper right. You’ll see this File Upload form:
- Click the Choose File button, and navigate to your file. It must be a *.doc, *.docx, or *.pdf file.
- Type your reflection comments in the Comments… box (indicated by the orange arrow). I read your comments before I read your project. These comments are worth 10 points of your grade. Don’t forget them! Include this information:
- Tell me what grade you aimed for (e.g., I aimed for a B+ by including headings and icons).
- Tell me how well you met your goals.
- Tell me anything else you want me to know before I grade your project.
- Click the Submit Assignment button, and your work will be uploaded and turned in.
- Watch for a blog post later in the week of December 15 that will let you know that the course grades have been submitted. You can check your Grades in Canvas to see what you earned.
