User:Bellerophon/Adoption My adoption school is currently closed as I do not really have the time to commit to it fully at the moment
Welcome to my adoption school
, the place for my adopted users to learn. Each adopted user will have his or her own official 'adoption page', which usually consists of assignments and examinations assigned by me. If you would like to study at the school please leave me a message on my talk page
How it works
My adoption school works in a similar way to a conventional education course. Your adoption page is the Wikipedia equivalent of your exercise book. I will set you a series of assignments—there are 7 in total. The assignments will start with a list of material to read through; once you have read this, I will post a number of questions for you to answer, on the subject(s) you have just read about. I will review your answers and provide you with feedback. When you have answered all the questions and any followup questions, you will receive a grade for that assignment. If you do not complete an assignment to a satisfactory standard, you will be asked to re-sit that assignment. Once you have completed all the assignments satisfactorily, I will set you a final examination. Once you pass your final exam, you will receive your graduation certificate.
Grades and graduation
Because some editors commit to adoption school more than others, I believe it is fair to recognize such commitment. Each assignment you complete will be 'graded' from A* to C. This is designed to reflect the level of familiarity you have displayed with the subject matter for that assignment.
On completion of your final exam, You will receive a graduation barnstar
. Depending on your grades throughout the school, you may graduate with one of the following honors. Those students who earn one or more 'star' grades will receive additional recognition in their graduation barnstar.
- cum laude, meaning "with honor" — awarded for achieving at least 3 'A' grades.
- magna cum laude, meaning "with great honor" — awarded for achieving at least 4 'A' grades.
- summa cum laude, meaning "with highest honor" — awarded for achieving at least 5 'A' grades and 1 'A*' grade.
