Instructions for Using CAPA
CAPA is a "Computer-Assisted
for assignments, quizzes and examinations." The system was developed at MSU and is used at over 50 colleges and universities in the US and abroad.
(PHY183, Fall 2001, Section2)
It is recommended that
you answer the questions and work the problems before you 'login' to the
computer. Discussion of concepts and methods of solving problems
with fellow students is also strongly encouraged.
Each assignment sheet has your Name and also a specific CAPA
number. You may enter solutions either through vt100 emulation (Telnet)
or through the web.
To use the web version of CAPA, point your browser to the URL:
From the pull-down menu, choose phy183-002
Enter your student number and CAPA ID in the designated fields.
Click on the appropriate 'here' button to go to the main menu.
Choose 'Try Current Set'. Your assignment will then be displayed.
Follow the instructions before you, and remember to "Submit All Answers"
before you exit.
There is no telnet version available right now. Please let Prof. Schatz know
if you need telnet access.
