Question: What is the
format of the Exams? How can I study for Exams 1, 2 and
3? What about makeup exams?
Answer: Exams will
include 40 multiple-choice questions. Scantron sheets will be
provided for students to take the exam. Questions will come
from the reading, the online lectures, the current issues slides,
and perhaps two from the discussion list. The exams are
non-cumulative. Exam 1 is on Chapters 1-7, Exam 2 Chapters 8-13, and
Exam 3 Chapters 14-19.
Three exams are scheduled. The highest two exam scores will count in
your grade calculation.
Exam1 will be offered on the place, date and time scheduled on the
syllabus, and it covers only material from Chapter 1-7. There will
be 50 minutes for taking Exam1. Students must show up at the
scheduled beginning time to take any of the exams. Late arrivals
cannot be admitted to the exam.
On the scheduled date for Exam2, Exam2 and a makeup Exam1 will be
offered. Questions 1-40 will cover Exam2 material (ch 8-13), and
then an optional Exam1 for questions 41-80 (ch 1-7). You can take
either or both exams during the time allotted. There will be 90
minutes for taking any or all of these exams. Students must show up
at the scheduled beginning time to take any of the exams.
On the scheduled date for Exam3, Exam 3, and makeups for Exam2 and
Exam1 will be offered. Questions 1-40 will cover Exam3 material (ch
14-19), questions 41-80 will cover Exam2 material (ch 8-13), and
questions 81-120 will cover Exam1 material (ch 1-7). You can take
any or all three exams during the scheduled time period. There will
be 90 minutes for taking any or all of these exams. Students must
show up at the scheduled beginning time to take any of the exams.
Thus, there will be 3 opportunities to take Exam 1 and receive the
highest of three scores, two opportunities to take Exam 2 and
receive the highest of two scores, and one opportunity to take
optional Exam 3. Only two exam scores are required, but of course
they must be from two different exams (1 and 2, 2 and 3 or 1 and 3).
Makeup exams outside of the opportunity to take makeups during exam2
and exam3 aren't normally offered. If you miss exam3 for a good
reason, in particular, please contact us.
