STEP 1Instructions for the 2 Quizzes So You Can Self-Test What You Know and Donít Know about Evidence and History

1.       Donít worry about your grade. Just worry about measuring your own current knowledge.

Why shouldnít you worry? These quizzes do not count for points directly. A low or high score does not matter.

 

2.       After you take these self-tests, you will see in this order:

         A section to help you figure out what you donít know

o   A tutorial made with small self-tests

o   Some dictionary terms in class you donít know a word

o   A scan of 4 pages from Diane Hackerís The Bedford Handbook on the Chicago Manual of Style, the standard for citation in History.

o   A very simple version of endnotes for this class so you can cite within Blackboardís tool for written exam answers.

o   A very simple version of endnotes for this class so can cite within a paper submitted in Turnitin Ė To avoid confusion, this is visible after your 1st Unit Exam.

o   A forum on Evidence so you can ask questions and see other studentsí questions and answers

         A section where you can retest on the 2 quizzes for points

         A section where you can submit your Personal Responsibility Form for the 5 Good Habits for Evidence
