Today we will do some grading. Please have any missing work ready for me. I will come around and check while you are working on the test.
If you don't finish this test during class you must finish this at home. We will have a second test tomorrow.
These tests are designed to demonstrate that you have an understanding of the basic concepts that we have covered.
All classes will perform the same task:
You have been asked to beta test this new site for Oberlin College (here is their current site). Please analyze the NEW site.
- Are the tools they employ effective? Be specific.
- Who is their audience (prospective students, current students, alumni??). Do they speak effectively to that audience?
- What is their message? Can you summarize this college in one sentence (Oberlin is a....) ?
- Do you like the new site better? Why?
Yes, I am testing if you can think and write fast (and if you can use your personal learning network). I will allow you to edit this from home. But you MUST have it done before you arrive in class tomorrow.
