Challenges / Exercises
In MIS3502, the instructor will periodically assign challenges that are to be begun in class. Students will often need to complete the challenge on their own, after class. Challenges are learning exercises and they are not graded.
UPDATE: Effective 2/6/2017 – On challenge due dates, I will be randomly calling on teams at the start of class to share their solutions to the challenges. I will keep track of which teams are prepared, and which are not. This can have bearing on my perception of how well your team is functioning (i.e. the “performance of the team”) and also make you and your teammates eligible for extra credit.
Teams which do consistently present satisfactory challenge solutions, when called upon, will be eligible to receive 3 points added to their final grade. In order to get the three points extra credit, the team needs to be prepared each and every time they are called upon.
