Instructions for Completing the Self-Study Component
Step-by-Step Instructions for Completing the Self-Study Component
Note: These instructions are repeated in the GRIP Web Self Study Manual on the “Instructions” page.
A. Become familiar with the resources for this component.
- Read the “Introduction” section of this self-study manual.
- Using a Web browser access the GRIP Web site at: www.mun.ca/sgs/grip.
- Browse the site and become familiar with the information and instructions provided.
B. Set up your access to the case study questions in Desire2Learn.
The GRIP Web site is located on one of Memorial’s Web servers. The site makes use of Desire2Learn, a Web-based, course tools software, to manage and track student access, deliver feedback to the case study questions, and to record your score. The case study questions are accessible only to registered users. Your account information and progress through the Desire2Learn component of GRIP is accessible only by the Desire2Learn system administrator and the GRIP administrator.
Desire2Learn requires that a value be assigned to each response. Therefore, each set of case-study question responses is ranked—the most appropriate response is assigned the highest point value. In addition to scoring and recording your responses, Desire2Learn will track the amount of time spent working on each question. These are functions of the Desire2Learn system and have no bearing on your transcript entry.
