Click and then download the following simple text file: ex2-key.txt. Then rename the file (or not) replacing "ex2-key" with whatever you want your key pdf file to be named (shorter is better than longer and no spaces). Also change the extension from txt to pdf. Canvas needs to think it is a pdf file. Then log into Canvas and upload this tiny file to the assignment named "Exam2 KEY". After that we will be able to download your "pdf document" and names and then upload a pdf file with the KEY to your exam. 320 students out of 399 did this for exam 1. It's even easier now, because I don't have to have your EID at all... just a reasonable name with .pdf at the end of it. I know you can do it. - Dr. McCord
Of course the KEY will NOT be available until AFTER we grade the exam. KEY will show up on Thursday morning if you do this.
If you have no score, we didn't scan a bubblesheet for you. If you took the exam and have a blank, then email Dean and find out the problem.
Class average was a 71.7
During the registration for Sapling you WERE asked to enter your UTEID into the appropriate field on the Sapling sight. Over 100 students have NOT done this and they WILL receive ZEROS for their homework grade if they do not do so. So PLEASE, login to Sapling and click on your name to view your "Profile". Then click on "Edit profile". Then scroll down and enter your UTEID into the ID Number field. Then click "Update profile". - Thank you.
This message is now on Sapling as a discussion forum - it is really just an announcement about homework average.
Many of you are concerned about your homework average here on Sapling. I have just changed the way the homework displays and will try to clue you in further. ALL homeworks are now displaying as straight percentages. So ALL homeworks are EQUAL in status and are all worth 100 percentage points apiece.
As for averaging. We will ultimately DROP your 2 lowest homeworks in the set for your homework average. This may or may not show as the semester progresses, but will definitely be in affect by the end of the semester.
We anticipate at least 12 and no more than about 15 homework assignments for the semester. We've had 7 before spring break and we should continue on the same trend as we near the month of May and the end of the course.
I hope this clears up most of your concerns about homework. As always, come to class and LISTEN to announcements to know all the details about such things.
