Week 2 Feedback

Here is the feedback on your Week 2 Assignment.

  • Thank you for completing the assignment on time.
  • You wrote something in the Summary field about 95% of the time, keep up the good work!
  • You answered all of the questions posed to you in the exercise; some screenshots displaying the differences in nucleotide and amino acid sequences would have been useful.
  • You completed all of the sections of the electronic notebook. However, you need to be more explicit as to your methods and results. I.e., what specific crosses did you perform and what were the counts of the offspring resulting from those crosses?
  • Please make a section labeled "Data and Files". You should have included your saved Greenhouses in this section.
  • In your Acknowledgments section, please describe the nature of your collaboration with your homework partners. Did you work only in class or outside? What were the contributions of each member? Please use the Academic Honesty statement provided "as is" in the assignment. When using your wiki signature, you don't have to type your name as well. It will be filled in when you save the page.
  • Please include an explicit "References" section. While the reference to sources was provided in your Resources section, I would like this to uniformly appear under "References".
  • Overall, this was a good first attempt at an electronic notebook. In the future, ask yourself if you would be able to retrace your steps given only the information in the notebook. Be sure to follow the instructions as closely as possible to the sections required.

Week 1 Feedback

Here is the feedback on your Week 1 Assignment. Thank you for completing the assignment on time. You may make up the points you missed on this assignment by completing the requested changes by the Week 3 wiki deadline, midnight Tuesday, September 20 (Monday night/Tuesday morning).

  • You completed all of the the items in the assignment, except for the following:
    • You wrote something in the Summary field for 58 out of 71 changes, or 82% of the time. This is respectable, but we are aiming to write in the Summary field 100% of the time. Be aware that you've written something before you click "Save page".
    • You linked your name on the course People page to your user page, but your wiki syntax does not use a label. Using a label gives a much neater appearance.
    • You used 5 levels of headings, instead of just the 3 levels requested in the assignment. While I am in favor of using headings where appropriate, your use of them in your job descriptions is a little awkward; that information might better be imparted as a bulleted list. I apologize if I misunderstood your question about this when you came to see me in office hours.
    • You provided the image in the thumbnail as we figured out in office hours; you should now go back and change the caption to that image to your name instead of the auto-text that was placed there.
    • You created a template with the lists of assignments, individual journals, and class journals. However, the text is appearing as "run-on" lines. It is a peculiarity of wiki syntax that if you want text to appear on a separate line, you have to put an empty line in between them, not just a single return. Alternately, you could use a bulleted list for this.
    • You can delete all of the auto-text that OpenWetWare placed on your Talk page below my feedback, if you want.
  • I'm kind of sad to think that the Janovy article made you feel like less of a biologist than before. Do you think his views are slanted towards a particular type of biology? I hope this class will change your mind again!
