I'm always amazed by the scores (mostly low!) on the first quizzes of the semester. The really amazing thing is the number of people who clearly haven't read the assignment and leave the entire quiz blank -- yet they write their names on them and turn them in.
Well, here's hoping they get the message that reading the assignments is not optional and that there WILL be a quiz for each assignment. Here's hoping they also get better at taking notes since these are open-notes quizzes!
