GRAM’s ANTH 101 Essays

There are some essay exams for Ingrid GRAM’s ANTH 101 students (2nd file drawer).

They should answer the questions that are circled on the exam.

SOC 204

Several Instructors teach SOC 204:

1) Rod METZGER’s SOC 204 Exam #1 is WRITTEN (top file drawer).

2) Nadia RAZA’s SOC 204 EXAM is online. She may also have WRITTEN make-ups for her IN-CLASS sections of SOC 204.

3) Jim SALT’s SOC 204 Exams are usually COMPUTER exams.

4) Suzanne WILLIAMS and other Instructors may have WRITTEN make-ups for their SOC 204 students.

ANOTHER REMINDER

MAKE SURE YOU ASK STUDENTS WHO THEIR INSTRUCTOR IS and WHAT THE CLASS is, (i.e. SOC 204)–IF THEY DO NOT KNOW, THEN HAVE THEM PRINT THEIR SCHEDULE AND LOOK IT UP WITH THE CRN#.

REMINDER

When logging students into COMPUTER Tests, the staff person in the WRITTEN TESTING LAB should log students into computers 1-17 (the ones they can see), and the staff person in the COMPUTER LAB should log people ino computers 18-30.

This helps us avoid trying to log 2 people into the same computer and/or accidentally exiting students out of tests.

WHEN A STUDENT IS LEAVING THE COMPUTER TESTING:
1) Ask the student which computer they were on.
2) Check to see if there is no one at the station # they gave you (sometimes they give us the wrong number)
3) Control the screen of that station by double clicking on the station # in the list.
4) Check to see if the student has logged out.
5) If the screen is blue (the Finder screen) then drag the mouse to the bottom of the screen to get the MOODLE HOME page back and LOCK the screen,
6) If the screen is on the login screen that gives you a choice between Student and Test (This means the student totally logged out of Safari and Finder), then click on “Student”, Enter the secret password, and get back to the MOODLE HOME page before locking the screen.

It’s important to try to keep the screens all locked when there are no students testing on them. It’s really hard to do this when it’s busy, so we just have to try to catch up after checking in a huge crowd of testers.

TIMESHEETS due again

Please put a signed copy of your timesheet in my box in the lab by tomorrow–10/31 and submit your hours in ExpressLane.

Thanks!

GRAM’s ANTH 103 Telecourse vs. In-Class

REMINDER:

For GRAM’s IN-CLASS ANTH 103, please enter “Quiz” and the appropriate number for the Culture Quizzes, under “Which test?”

For GRAM’s ANTH 103 TELECOURSE, please enter “Exam” and the appropriate number from the drop down menu.

This is the only way that I can track the number of tests that were given for the Telecourse, versus the number of quizzes given for the Non-telecourse, so it really helps if you can be accurate with entering this information.

GRAM’s ANTH 103 ESSAYS

Ingrid GRAM has COMPUTER QUIZZES for her IN-CLASS ANTH 103 class AND COMPUTER EXAMS for her ANTH 103 TELECOURSE.

She also has WRITTEN ESSAY OPTIONS for students in these classes. These are in the 2nd file drawer and should have the students’ names on them. LOOK FOR the ORANGE hanging file folders. The purple folder should have the TELECOURSE ESSAYS for ANTH 103 and there is a yellow folder for the ANTH 103 In-CLass ESSAYS.

There is also a folder for ANTH 101 WRITTEN EXAMS. As of today, Friday 10/27, there are no WRITTEN ANTH 101 Exams.

If you cannot find an essay for one of Ingrid GRAM’s students, check the other file folders for GRAM and make sure no one misfiled an exam. If you still cannot find the exam, them Email Ingrid and make sure to say that it’s the ESSAY the student wants.

GET the INSTRUCTOR’s NAME…before checking a student into an exam

I recommend that you ALWAYS ask the INSTRUCTOR’s Name when checking students into exams. And, ask if it is a Distance Learning Course (ie. Online, Telecourse or Live-Interactive)–this info. is on the class schedule.

Knowing this helps us give students the correct exams.

IF STUDENTS DO NOT KNOW THE INSTRUCTOR’s NAME, then ask them to print their schedule. The schedule is not required for testing, but it is helpful. REMEMBER, you can look up the INSTRUCTOR’s Name using the CRN # for the class.

IMPORTANT!

If you log a student into MOODLE and do not see the course and/or test listed, then ALWAYS look in the file cabinet drawers for a WRITTEN test. Even if you think the deadline is past for a computer test, try logging the student into Moodle–the Instructor may have extended the deadline.

Also, if there is a copy of a written exam in the file drawer, then ALWAYS let the student take the exam, even if you think the deadline is past. The teacher can always void the test if the student has taken it too late. REMEMBER to look in the top drawer and the 2nd file drawer. Students do not usually ask for a “Make-Up test”.

It’s Midterm week, so it’s been crazy busy in the lab most days. So, as students leave their computer tests. please ask them what computer they were on, LOOK to make sure they gave you the right computer #, then click on that computer from the remote desktop and make sure the student has Logged out of the exam and LOCK that station.

Locking the station makes sure the computers do not go to sleep and then a student cannot login for someone else. Especially when it’s so busy, the person in the computer room should try to keep on top of this as best as possible.

MARTINEZ’s ECON 200 Exam #1

MARTINEZ teaches an ONLINE ECON 200 course and several IN-CLASS sections.

When a student requests a MARTINEZ ECON 200 Exam, we need to ask if the student is in the TELECOURSE or an IN-class section, because the tests are different.

The ONLINE course has COMPUTER tests and the IN-class sections are WRITTEN–top file drawer.

TEST #1 for the IN-class ECON 200 sections starts tomorrow, so if you inadvertently sign an in-class student into MOODLE, you won’t be able to access a test–that’s because it’s a WRITTEN test.

As a general rule, if you can’t find a test in MOODLE, then check the drawer for a WRITTEN test.
