Weekly quizzes in this course are NOT easy. The questions consist, by and large, of writing code and questions from the readings and lecture and discussion sections. Content may include all material covered in the class to date, with an emphasis on the content covered in the preceding week. Your average quiz score will determine 45% of your final grade.

Although all the quizzes may have a different number of available points, your average percentage score is what is used to determine your grade. For example, suppose your quiz scores are the following:
|Points||Percentage||Quiz Grade Average|
Note that the "Quiz Grade Average" is computed as (86 + 91 + 100)/3 = 92.3%.
There will be no make up quizzes. Register to take your quiz earlier rather than later to insure you can reserve a time slot. If you miss a quiz, you will be given your semester's average quiz score minus a penalty, as follows:
|Number of Missed Quizzes||Missed Quiz Score|
|Missed Quiz 1 Score||Semester Quiz Average - 20%|
|Missed Quiz 2 Score||Semester Quiz Average - 30%|
|Missed Quiz 3 Score||Semester Quiz Average - 40%|
For example, if you miss quiz 4, and your semester quiz average is 92.3% (for all quizzes you attended), you will receive an assigned grade of 72.3% (92.3% - 20% = 72.3%) for your missing quiz 4, making your semester quiz average 87.3%. If you also miss quiz 5, you will receive an assigned grade of 57.3% (87.3% - 30%) for your second missing quiz, making your semester quiz average 81.3%.
