ON THE QUIZZES

You will have three lovely quizzes in which to display your knowledge of the course material in a concise manner. I will drop the lowest score; only two will be used to calculate your grade for this part of the course. The first quiz consisted of at one slide comparison, and two single slides with questions for each.

Week Seven : Nov. 7 The second quiz will consist of two slide comparisons.

Week Nine : Nov. 21 The format of the third is still to be set.

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST USE A PEN, NOT A PENCIL FOR THESE EXAMS.



ON THE MIDTERM

The Midterm will be given October 24 in class. It will cover all works listed with a (*) on the monuments list, the readings, and the lectures, through Edgar Degas. Here are the details:
  1. Five Slide Comparisons, worth 10 points each. Each comparison will be shown for 7 minutes.
  2. Six Questions with Slides, worth five points each. Each will be shown for five minutes.
  3. Five Slide identifications, worth four points each. Each will be shown for two minutes. Note that for the Slide id.s you need to indicate the name of the artist, name of the object, the date by ten years, and the location if the object is a building or other immovable object. Do not make any comments.

Please make sure to arrive promptly for the exam. No re-showings of slides will be made for those who are late.

Please also note that NO EXCUSES will be accepted for missing the Midterm, with the exception of documented severe illness or injury. I will decide what is acceptable documentation. If you miss the Midterm, you will receive a 0 and will have thus failed the course.
