a suggested class format and actual quiz / exam availbility dates.
grade: The course grade will be determined by two formal exams covering tree
biology and ecology topics, nine quizzes
on tree identification, and two lesson
plans developed using material learned in the course. The two exams are not
cumulative and will each be worth 30 percent of your final grade. Nine tree identification
quizzes will also be taken each worth approximately 3.3 percent. Each quiz may
be taken twice. A different quiz will be made available and the highest score
counted. Quizzes will be cumulative (i.e. the quiz for session 3 will include
trees from sessions 1 and 2). All exams and quizzes will be taken over the internet.
Each lesson plan will be worth 5% of the final grade.
