Extra credit available for 341 students:
Watch the film Iron Man, and list all the branded products (goods, services, ideas) you can spot.
(At the risk of sounding like a teenage girl, I am sooo excited about the sequel...)
Here are the ideas/guidelines for the group assignment for the 343 students (sorry, not as fun, I know... but still pretty fun, right?)

I just found some information from Qualtrics that gives very good basic directions for writing useful, user-friendly survey questions. These "pitfall" tips are also excellent.
If you're planning on creating a survey (or surveys) for the primary data portion of your research, I highly recommend reading these first!
Have a great weekend,

I really wish the Flying Platform and the Illuminated Tires (and the Dog Restrainer, pictured above) were available in stores!

I'll only be in my office this afternoon until 3:00 pm.
I will be in tomorrow afternoon, from 12:00-3:00, if you need to see me.
And as always, you're welcome to make an appointment if there's another time that works better for you.
From the syllabus, the correct way to contest an answer on an exam:
"If you believe I've made an error in grading or recording an assignment you've completed, please give me a written request for review, providing a full explanation and referring to specific wording in the text or course materials to support your request....
Example: "On Thursday's quiz, 'A' was listed as the correct answer for question #5. However, according to the book on p. 344, 'C' could also be considered correct because..."
In other words, if you want me to reconsider particular questions from Exam 1, your appeals must have more support than simply, "I think..." statements.
(Therefore, everyone who has submitted an appeal so far will need to revisit the issue(s) a little more diligently.)
Thanks, and good luck!
