Day 10: Friday = Quiz Day

This year, I’ll be quizzing every Friday. If students finish early, they can work on the WebAssign problems due the following Thursday. (Since the WebAssign HW lags behind the in-class content by a week, this works well.) Also, the quizzes are done in SBG format, with about 3 concepts assessed. Each week, the oldest concepts rotate out as new concepts rotate in. So, for example, last week’s quiz was on:

  1. Vectors
  2. Gravitational and Electric Forces

Today’s quiz was on:

  1. Vectors
  2. Gravitational and Electric Forces
  3. Electric Fields

Next week’s quiz will be on:

  1. Gravitational and Electric Forces
  2. Electric Fields
  3. Dipoles

This appears to be supported by research referenced in Make It Stick (thanks to Julie Reulbach for this summary).
