MyITLab Assignments start soon and are given almost EVERY class day the remainder of the semester. SEE SCHEDULE ONLINE! There are four types of assignments for each chapter: ◦Skill-Based Training, 10% ◦Skill-Based Exam, 40% ◦Grader Project Homework, 10% ◦Grader Project Assessment, 40%
MyITLab Skill-Based Training: You can go through this UNLIMITED times, 5 tries per question. Basically, it’s a free “A”. It’s trying to teach you something.
MyITLab Skill-Based Training: They’re pretty obvious if you know the material already. WANT TO BLOW THEM OFF? You may. Then that 10% goes to the Skill-Based Exam (which then counts 50%) for that chapter.
MyITLab Skill-Based Exam: You can go through these TWO times, 5 tries per question. Each time you have 1 hour total. Your best score will be saved. ◦Computer crashed? Family emergency? That’s why we’re giving you two tries… pretend your first try is your ONLY try.
MyITLab Grader-Project Homework: You can go through UNLIMITED times. You should view these as training for the Grader- Project Assessment. These count 10%, and they’re pretty obvious if you know the material already. WANT TO BLOW THEM OFF? You may. Then that 10% goes to the Grader-Project Assessment (which then counts 50%) for that chapter.
MyITLab Grader-Project Assessment : You can go through these TWO times with no time limit. Your best score will be saved. ◦Computer crashed? Family emergency? That’s why we’re giving you two tries… pretend your first try is your ONLY try.
