Day 8: Computerized Preassessments and XKCD Passwords

Imag1445

Administered the FCI online via WebAssign today. This was also their first time using WebAssign. In the past, I had kids enroll themselves in WebAsssign using a class key, but students would often forget their username and password. So this time, I created the accounts myself, using their school email handle as their username and a random 3-word password (ala xkcd). It was a neat way to work that famous xkcd comic into class and make it meaningful.
