The Quiz Experience


The final Quiz scores for this course have been calculated on a 100-point scale. If you wish to know your score before the final please come to see me during my office hours (1-3:30) Monday, Nov. 27 or Tuesday, Nov. 28. Scores will not be provided via e-mail or over the phone.

You will have five 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 lowest score will be dropped.

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 listed on the List of Monuments page and which have been cited in class.

The quiz will consist of three pairs of slides. Each pair has at least one thing in common, and usually there is at least one difference between the two. Review the site at the link for more information. We will go over this type of quiz in class at least once and you may ask or e-mail me questions at any time (

Please see the Schedule of Lectures for the dates of the quizzes.
