Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterward.
Effective learning requires feedback on how successful your learning process is. While quizzes, tests and examinations have their limitations, their advantage is in providing rapid feedback on your progress.
Each week you will be provided with a quiz to generate feedback on your understanding of the concepts explored. The point should not be just to study and do well on the quiz, though that is part of the process, the point should be that you will receive feedback on how well you have understood the concepts, and how successful your learning process has been. If you do not do well on a quiz, you should review your understanding of the concepts misunderstood, consider putting more effort into your study, and modifying your study process so that you learn more effectively.
You have a week to complete each quiz, beginning from when each lecture begins, and it must be completed before the next week's lecture begins.
If my future were determined just by my performance on a standardised test, I wouldn't be here. I guarantee you that.
In this case, you are assessed on your ability to answer questions about the concepts presented in lectures and course notes for the week. The quizzes are not timed and you can refer to your notes, but this means the questions will generally be framed so that you need to actually understand the concepts in order to answer them correctly. Questions will be randomised and you will only have one chance at each quiz, so you do need to study and prepare for each quiz, each week. The focus is on providing you with feedback on your understanding of the concepts presented in lectures each week, but unfortunately, we cannot provide you with details immediately as you could share this with other students. Your score, missed questions and incorrect answers will be emailed to you after the next lecture each week when the quiz will no longer be available to other students.
In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson.
The best intelligence test is what we do with our leisure.
