"Delayed feedback" homework problem grading

This is to clarify how the "Delayed Feedback" homework problems work (these are the ones with the little stopwatch next to them). Before the first deadline for each homework assignment (indicated by the red box on your ByteShelf calendar view), the system will not tell you whether your answers to these questions are right or wrong. You can answer a question as many times as you like (up to 100 tries each), and you can view the help videos as many times as you like. When the first deadline passes your grade on these questions will be based on the last answer you submitted before the deadline. 

If you have one of these Delayed Feedback questions wrong at the first deadline you still have until the second deadline - a week later - to correct it. The system will now tell you whether your answer is right or wrong when you hit the submit button. Given that these are multiple choice questions it is not very difficult to get them all correct at this point. If a question is incorrect at the first deadline but correct before the second deadline, you will get back 80% of the credit for it.
