Deep appreciation is extended to:
- Louisiana Tech University Summer Technology Grant Committee for awarding funding for this project
- Dr. Walter Wicker for providing support for this project
- Lynell Buckley for facilitating the addition of a graphic designer for this project
- The Reference faculty, staff, and student workers of Prescott Memorial Library for providing additional feedback and support during the completion of the project.
Original to this version was an online, integrative database to organize and collect quiz data to provide efficient delivery of student scores to instructors. That database was designed by Nick Tullos.
Currently, quizzes are delivered and scored through Blackboard which has proven to be a more convenient (and efficient) means of student and instructor access.
