Netiquette Quiz

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Idana Hamilton (Faculty), Aug 14, 2001
Comment: I went through and took the quiz and then read the follow-up comments of each
response. Then I went back and tried each answer, reading the corresponding
feedback that follows the answer, whether right or wrong. Since I needed a
non-threatening, non-punitive way to teach netiquette to a group of college
freshmen who would be actively involved in email communication with their peers,
I tried the quiz with a group of twenty students.

I found that the students were surprised at some of the responses to their
answers, which indicated they really needed the awareness the quiz gave them.
They weren't as threatened by the "computer's" answer and took it well when they
missed something. I didn't have to be the "bad guy" or "heavy" while exposing
some of them to things they were unaware of.

Technical Remarks:

The quiz was very easy--and effective. With some of the first time users--there
weren't many--it took a minute to get them to the site. Then they were fine.
