"Service to the WebCT/Mallard server was restored at approximately 7:00 pm. this evening. "

"The WebCT/Mallard server has again experienced the same type of hardware failure as occurred earlier today.  We are working with SUN to replace the failed components.  In the interim we will do our best to restore access and insure data accessibility.

It will be several hours at minimum before functionality can be restored.  I will continue to post at http://www.ilstu.edu/alerts/ "

Mallard is back on line...

The Mallard server was down last night, at least after 9:30 pm, and is still not running. Keep checking this announcements page for updates on its status.

When you hear from me, complete your quiz and I will alter your grade to remove the 10% penalty - assuming it is fixed today.

A note on grading policy for Mallard Quizzes:

In a Web Quiz, all questions are not weighted equally. Some questions have a greater weight than others. The weight of each question depends on the number of parts that make it up. On Quiz 2, for example, one question (#5) had five parts (and #4 had two parts...). Therefore #5 alone is worth 50% of this particular quiz. If you answered questions 1 - 4 correctly but did not complete 5 then the highest score you can get is a 50%. Because the grading policy required a score of 60% or higher to be recorded, the grade book lists your score as zero...

I have just altered the grading policy so that any score you receive will show up in the grade book - even if it is less than 60%. Over the course of the semester I will edit your score on Quiz 2 so that the points earned will appear in place of a zero.
