Week 3 quiz

Hi prof,

I noticed the quiz is available from 9 am on Tuesday until 5 pm Friday, do we have a time 
limit for the quiz? 

Can we start the quiz on Tuesday and do half of the quiz, then go back to finishing the 
rest half on the other day as long as it's before the due date and we don't click the 
submit button?

Thank you,
Fangting

I have not set a time limit on the quiz in LMS.

I don't think that would be a very good idea. LMS sessions typically "time out" after a while if 
left unattended. If you want to be sure your answers are submitted, I'd suggest just doing it in 
one session.

Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions about the quiz.

Cheers

Arran

Hi,

The quiz in week-3 comprises 10% marks of the total or will there be other quizzes in 
the future which will be included in that 10%?

Thank you

It's 10% of the total.

The aim was to have an assessment early on which would give students some feedback about 
their understanding of the content, not be worth as much as the exam or assignments, and be 
at a level of difficulty where students who have kept up with the lectures and readings 
should easily pass.

I thought the web page at https://cits4407.github.io/#assessment was pretty clear about this 
- it says:

"The assessment for Open Source Tools and Scripting consists of a quiz, two assignments, and 
a final examination.

Quiz (online)	10%	week 3
Assignment 1	20%	week 7
Assignment 2	20%	week 12
Examination	50%	June examination period"

Are you asking because you hadn't read the webpage? Or because you thought the quiz was too 
hard? Or because you thought it wasn't hard *enough*, and you'd like more quizzes? I can't 
tell from your posting. Normally, we wouldn't change the assessment structure or weighting 
after the unit has already started, unless very serious problems arose. But it is possible, 
so if you think there *is* a serious problem, perhaps email me and let me know.

Cheers

Arran
