    [OM-SY-1] Based on the syllabus, if someone is in one of my current classes, what is the best method to communicate with me?

    • A.

      Email only

    • B.

      Private Messages Only

    • C.

      Email or Private Message

    • D.

      Voicemail

    Correct Answer
    B. Private Messages Only
    Explanation
    Private Messages in ETUDES is best, since I am able to keep track of your messages. I receive too much email, most of it junk, which increases the likelihood of your message getting lost. Voicemail is not good either, since I only check messages a couple of times a week. Private Messages is the default communication method, if you are in any of my current classes.

      Publisher's Website

    • D.

      Foothill College Bookstore (online or on-campus)

    Correct Answer
    D. Foothill College Bookstore (online or on-campus)
    Explanation
    Best place is our Foothill College Bookstore. You don't know if the edition or bundle of tools are appropriate for our class, if you purchase the textbook at a source other than our bookstore. Keep in mind that instructors (or the bookstore) cannot possibly keep track of all the editions and variations that are sold outside of our own bookstore.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    [OM-SY-4]Based on the SYLLABUS, which section defines the various graded tasks (CA's, Q's, HW's, etc.)?[refer to syllabus]

      Class Calendar

    • B.

      Graded Components

    • C.

      Tools and Websites

    • D.

      Textbook

    Correct Answer
    B. Graded Components
    Explanation
    Syllabus Section SY 6, which also gives the weighted points (as opposed to the raw points) for each component that makes up your grade, which I refer to as a "deliverable".

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    [OM-SY-6]The minimum hours per week required for this class (5 units), during the regular quarter is 15 hours (reading, hw, testing, asking and responding to questions). Class is designed for 12-15 hours. If you are spending less time per week, you are either already an experienced accountant or you are not giving you enough time to learn the material well.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    5 quarter units for a class = 5 hours of lecture (or reading) and 10 hours for homework per week.

    In a summer session, the 15 total hours double to 30.

    Make sure you have enough enough hours in the week to complete all the tasks, including non-graded and graded (deliverables) work. Othewise, it is highly suggested that you consider taking the class in a future term, when you do have the time.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    [OM-SY-7] If you decide to withdraw the class with a "W" reflected in your transcript, by which week do you need to drop the class?

    • A.

      2nd week (1st week in summer session)

    • B.

      4th week (2 week in summer session)

    • C.

      8th week (3rd week in summer session)

    • D.

      Anytime during the term.

    Correct Answer
    C. 8th week (3rd week in summer session)
    Explanation
    Only you can drop or withdraw from the class. After 75% of the course has elapsed (week 8 in a regular 12 week term), you will not be allowed to withdraw and instructors are not able to do so either.

    Make sure to always drop/withdraw from the class officially with the college.

    Otherwise, if you stop coming to class without dropping/withdrawing, you will earn whatever grade you would have accumulated by the time you attending coming to class - usually a FAILING grade.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    [OM-SY-8] If you decide to drop the class, but do not do so officially with the college administration, the instructor can withdraw you?

    • A.

      True

    [OM-SY-9]Based on the syllabus, late submissions are accepted without penalty?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    To be fair to those who do submit on time, late submissions are not accepted. Nonetheless, I reserve the right to accept late submissions and apply up to a 0-100% penalty. At times, in cases of extenuating circumstances, I do extend due dates for specific students. But only 1 such opportunity per quarter per student is possible. Make use of your lowest score drops, strategically (do not waste them).

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    [OM-SY-10]Based on the syllabus, if you suffer a technical problem with your internet connection or other technical issues, you will be allowed a retake?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    No retakes, unless a systemic problems is found to be the issue.

    Use your "lowest scores" drops strategically, save them for when you truly need them due to possible personal or technical issues.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    [OM-SY-11]When you submit work containing UNSUPPORTED* figures, a heavy penalty will be applied - even if the answer is correct.*support is showing how you derived a number (calculation in parantheses or referenced to another document).note: only applies for work that requires and allows for support (e.g. excel submissions, if any). No support usually required in MAL or WileyPlus.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Support only expected for problems submitted for manual scoring (excel, google-docs). Support only required for "non-given" numbers.

    0-100% penalty applies for UNSUPPORTED numbers for NON-GIVEN figures in problems (usually in exams).

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    [OM-SY-12]Based on the syllabus, teams are defined as 2-5 persons*, and 1 submission per team?Hint: Answer True    

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Syllabus Section SY6 provides you with a general definition of what constitutes a team. The team definition varies from quarter to quarter and from project to project.

    When I override the general team definition, the change will be reflected in the instructions to each specific project option - in the class DASHBOARD.

    Generally, a smaller team makes it easier to coordinate work, while a larger team may reduce the workload. It varies from team to team, depending on team members' backgrounds, experience, motivation, etc.

    Most times (the default), I will let you choose your own team members. In certain instances, I create the groups, instead.

    Only 1 submission per team, credit given to names on title or cover page. Each person in team will receive the earned score on the submission.

    Note: each team member will receive the same score, unless the contribution rank, as shown on the title/cover page indicates a 50% or 100% reduction. More detail in announcement, later in term.

    A minimum of 30% reduction to score earned, if student submits team work individually.

    [OM-SY-13] Based on the syllabus, the OFFICIAL workweek runs from Monday through Sunday, 24/7?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    ALL work officially runs from Monday through Friday (12 noon). All work should be front-loaded to the early part of the week to then have enough time to ask for and get help (from both instructor, assistants, and classmates) before the weekend.

    The deadlines that fall on weekends are for the convenience of those who may find them useful. But please DO NOT rely on help during weekends.

    A. Wednesdays at 11:45pm.
    B. Sundays at 11:45pm.
    D. Other Deadlines, as Announced or Reflected on Class Calendar
    Explanation

I try to keep a consistent set of days for RC's and HW's, but it is not always possible, so deadlines can be any time during the week or weekend. Make sure to REVIEW Class Calendar and WEEKLY AGENDA's each and every week.

    [OM-TL-3]The best way to determine what is due and when.1) Review the Class Calendar in your syllabus (at least once per week, preferably on first day of each week)2) Review the listing of deliverables for the week in the WEEKLY AGENDA announcement, which I usually send it out on Monday morning (I copy and paste the listing from the class calendar). Note that the dates on MFL may not be the same. I sometimes extend the dates there to allow for flexibility in submitting beyond the actual due date on the class calendar. The Class Calendar is the controlling document with respect to due dates.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that the best way to determine what is due and when is to review the Class Calendar in the syllabus at least once per week, preferably on the first day of each week. Additionally, reviewing the listing of deliverables for the week in the WEEKLY AGENDA announcement, which is usually sent out on Monday morning, is also important. It is noted that the dates on MFL may not be the same, as the instructor sometimes extends the dates there to allow for flexibility in submitting beyond the actual due date on the class calendar.
