You should be receiving your HITT grades by Email to your Gatorlink account. If not make sure your Gatorlink account
is working correctly (i.e. not over quota). Next check if your remote code appears on the screen.
If the remote code appears on the screen, it is not possible for points to be lost by the system. Check your remote ID against
the RID number sent to you by the system to be sure you did not misregister your remote. If that is OK then the only remaining
possibility is that your remote is not in fact registering and you are mistaking someone else's remote code for yours. Possible
reasons for your remote not registering is that you are not broadcasting on the correct channel or your remote is broken. Come to
the lecture auditorium anytime between periods to have Mr. Mocko test your remote. The 20% forgiveness on HITT questions is to
allow for such issues so no points you miss are recoverable. This means the sooner you deal with the issue the less points you
will continue to miss.

9.05.08 
The solutions for the WileyPLUS online homework (HW1 Ch1&2) are available at the
