First Quiz

Be On Time, Babson Boulder in Dogtown, Gloucester, MA

Quiz #1 is scheduled for Monday September 23rd at 11:30 am. ARRIVE EARLY to make sure you’re on time for the quiz. Once the quiz starts, the timer is on. The quiz lasts approx. 35 minutes.

To start promptly, please come to class with your phone and watches in silent mode and put them away in your bag/backpack (not  your pocket). Please know any smartphone or smartwatch usage will result in a ZERO grade for the quiz with no make-up possibility.

The quiz will be drawn from works of art and vocabulary on Slidelists 1, 2, and 3 ( you are only responsible for what we cover during our 9/16 lecture for Slidelist 3). Please make sure you review the slidelists and the accompanying images files under Class Downloads, and most importantly, review your NOTES.

Quiz Format
Part 1 Vocabulary: (5 minutes)
Define 5 terms: write 1 to 2 lines explaining the term and its function
For example, define a pyramid by explaining what type of structure it is and what it is made for.

Part 2 Slide Identifications: (2 minutes per image)
10 images will be projected one at a time. You are asked to identify each work of art by
• name/title of work of art (2 points)
•artist/architect (if known) (1 point if asked)
•artistic period (1-2 points)
•approx. date (1/2 point, within a 100 year range)
•significance (4 points)
Write at least 2 points about the significance of this work of art.
You can address its function, context, subject matter, etc.

At the end of Part 2, I will show the slides again for 1 minute each and you can go back and add to your answers.

If you arrive too late for the quiz or miss the quiz, you will need a valid excuse to schedule a make-up. Please know that make-up quizzes are not the same as the in-class test but more challenging.

After the quiz, there will be a short break and lecture will resume after the break.
