exam consists of 43 questions that total 100 points. The questions are in a variety of formats including: True/False; multiple choices; short answer, matching, fill in the blank. The exam is timed; you will have up to 120 minutes (2 hours) to complete the exam. The average length of time to complete this exam is approximately 1 hour. Once you begin the exam, you must complete it in one seating. You cannot “pause” the exam, and continue with it at another time. The exam covers the information from the beginning of the semester. This includes information from both the textbook, and the online material (lecture material, assignments). You are allowed to use your textbook, and any course notes to assist you with the exam. I would limit the time spent looking things up in the book, as it can prove very time-consuming, and you may not complete the exam on time. The exam will be available during week 10. It must be completed by Saturday, November 7, 2015 11:30 PM EST. Once the availability date has passed, your exam will no longer be accepted, and you will receive a zero as your final exam grade (unless prior arrangements have been made). Important Note 1: You are responsible for completing and submitting your assignment before the allotted time has expired. When the allotted time has expired the exam will automatically be submitted. Important Note 2: Even though the exam instructions say that you can save and resume later please be aware that the timer will continue ticking down if you exit the exam. Once started, you will have a total of 2 hours and 00 minutes to complete the exam. It is recommended that you DO NOT exit the exam until it is completed since the clock is still ticking. Once you start the exam you should plan to finish it within the allotted time. Important Note 3: Some exam questions may appear to have multiple solutions. If that is the case, and if I am looking for only one solution, please provide the best answer to the question. (There will be only 1 best answer!) Some questions will have more than one answer and this will be stated. Important Note 4: I highly recommend that you save each answer as you progress through the exam. Although you save an answer, you are still able to go back and revisit the question, changing it if need be. Blackboard Learn will store your last saved answer for each question. Saving your answers as you progress through the exam is the only way to ensure that all of your hard work is stored in the assessment database, in case of power failure, or network problems during the test. Important Note 5: The exam is self-graded by the Blackboard Learn assessment tool. You will not receive your grade however, until I review the exams. The marks are typically released the day after the availability period of the exam expires. I recommend reviewing your exam results. If you find that Blackboard Learn has marked you unfairly, please let me know via email, by 11:30 PM Sunday night. If I don’t hear from you by then, I will assume that all is well. If you have any questions or problems regarding the exam, please email questions to me. Please do not post questions on the discussion board. Good luck on the exam!
