Pre-Course Quiz

Due Wednesday, April 2, at 5:00pm

This pre-course quiz is designed to help us do a better job of teaching the course by giving us an understanding of the backgrounds and knowledge of the students. Some of the questions are survey-type questions, while others ask about some of the topics to be covered in this course. There are 20 topical true/false questions on material to be taught in this course. Please note that you are NOT expected to know the answers to all or even most of the topical questions. Simply answer them to the best of your current knowledge and ability. Please also do not try to study for the questions, because that will skew the results and may lead us to spend less time on a certain topic than actually needed by you and other students in the class. Your score on the topical questions will not affect your course grade in any way, positively or negatively. Completing the pre-course quiz, however, is part of the Participation component of the course. You have a total of 20 minutes to complete the 20 topical true/false questions, which should be plenty of time. The time begins when you click "Ready to answer first topical question" below.
