Weekly Quizzes

Weekly Quizzes: A short 5 question quiz will be administered prior to the start of each lecture class (weeks 1, 2, 4 & 5). These quizzes will be based on the weekly assigned textbook readings and will test factual knowledge. Students will have 10 minutes to complete the quiz. The quizzes will comprise 10% of the class grade. There may be a dosage calculation problem on each of the quizzes. If a student arrives late to the class and misses the quiz, there will be no opportunity for a make-up quiz and a grade of 0 will be given for that quiz.

 These quizzes are administered online for the online course students (see course outline for more information)
