The in-class group quizzes earn you Golden Points!
Based on your GROUP ranking on the Plickers quizzes (see course webpage for results), you will earn the following rewards:
1st Place: First place finishers will receive +2 points on the Final Grade
2nd Place: Second place finishers will receive +1 point on the Final Grade.
3rd Place: Third place finishers will receive +5 points on the Final Exam.

The following rules apply to all group members:
Plickers Quiz Rules:
Rule 1: Quiz scores will be averaged based on number correct out of number of questions given. Occassionally, number of questions given may accumulate over more than one days quiz.
Rule 2: Absences will NOT result in a 0 (zero) for a given quiz, but a -5 point reduction on your individual score will be accrued for each quiz absence. In the event of a partial absence (came after or left before quiz was completed), the average calculation will be used, as per Rule 1.
Rule 3: Any group member not in attendance of at least 50% of recorded classes will have their Plickers group score ELIMINATED (thus removing any artificially low scores for the group).
Rule 4: Any individual with a PERFECT (100) score on ALL of the recorded quizzes will recieve an extra +1 Bonus Point on the Final Grade.
Other Golden Points:
Attendance Golden Points (up to 14 of 10 possible points are available):
1: If you do not use your two absences during the semester, the balance (+1 or +2 Golden Points) will accrue under the attendance area of the grade sheet
2: If you are in attendance on the day before AND the day after a designated college break, you will receive a +1 bonus Golden Point on your attendance score.
3: If the ENTIRE CLASS has above an 85% attendance rate for the entire semester, ALL members of the class will receive +1 bonus point on the final grade (added to the attendance area of the grade sheet).
