What is the Online Homework System? https://hw.utexas.edu/overview.html
The University of Texas operates an online homework system, grading over 1,000,000 questions each week, and used by over 1000 schools. It is a free service. As an instructor, you register your class with the service and define homework sets for your class (which problems and the due dates). Register your class in the computer science category (not math, physics or chemistry). Currently, I have written over 200 questions specific to embedded microcomputer systems. These questions can be used in conjunction with either of my two textbooks. You can find my online questions by searching for names starting with JWV_. The program numbers refer to chapter and sections Introduction to Embedded Microcomputer Systems book. The first set of ten homework sets, shown below was used Spring 2004 while teaching an EE class based on the book Embedded Microcomputer Systems: Real Time Interfacing. The second set of ten homework sets, shown below was used Fall 2003 while teaching an EE class based on the book Introduction to Embedded Microcomputer Systems: Motorola 6811 and 6812 Simulation. Your students signup under your class ID and download the homework questions. Multiple choice questions have randomized order of selections. Numerical answer questions have numerical parameters selected randomly. For example, in the following LED question, each student gets a question with different LED voltage and different LED current. The students answer the homework assignments on line. The on-line system is interactive, meaning the students know immediately if their answers are correct. The students' scores are based on how many wrong choices they make before getting it right (you can specify the grading formula) You download a spreadsheet of the grades for your class.
The most important educational activity our students should perform is a hands-on laboratory. Design is an important skill that should be taught in an embedded systems class. However, the use of paper and pencil homework can be used as a supplement to laboratory assignments. I have two educational objectives for assigning on-line homework. First, on-line homework provides a simple means for testing basic comprehension of fundamental concepts. On-line homework can evaluate the students' knowledge of definitions, design equations, and basic functionality of I/O ports. Second, I use on-line homework as a means to prepare students for examinations.
The following are two lists of specific questions assigned as homework. The links are pdf files a typical student would download while doing the homework. After you register your class, you will have access to the problems and solutions.
