The Quiz Experience

You will have six lovely quizzes, which in total will count for one third of your course grade. They will be short, and given at the beginning of the class. The quiz with the lowest score will be dropped. Thus the remaining five quizzes (100 points possible total) will comprise the final grade for this portion of the course.

These experiences will assist you in organizing and expressing your understanding of the material of the course. The quizzes will use the "Slide Comparison" method, which is described in exhaustive detail at the site linked here. These quizzes will require you to memorize a number of works of art, which you will find on the List of Monuments page and which have been cited in class.

We will go over the type of quiz in class and you may ask or e-mail me questions at any time (
