Quiz for Tuesday

I've published the quiz for the Event Expression reading on Learning suite. You will probably want to focus your reading on Chapters 2 and 4, but Chapter 1 will provide some context and grounding. Chapter 3 gives specific syntax for event expressions and some examples of how they're used. Don't skip 1 and 3 entirely.

Also, there was a question on question 4 of the last quiz. I was looking for "eventually" or "best effort" but many people answered "weak" which is also acceptable. I've updated the quiz and scores to reflect that.
