The Final Examination
The Final Examination will be
Tuesday, March 13 from 11:30am-1:18pm in 0020 Page Hall
The final exam will be comprehensive, covering all lectures and
assigned readings. It will be in the same format as the in-class exams,
but will be twice as long (100 questions). The final will be worth
30% of your course grade.
Attendance for the Final Exam is mandatory, and no
makeup final will be offered. If you should miss the final exam,
you will automatically receive a grade of incomplete (I), to be be made
up by a written exam during Spring Quarter 2012.
In keeping with new University policy, no early "senior" final exams are
given: graduating seniors must take the final exam with the rest of the
More information will be posted as the quarter gets further along.
How to Study for the Final
Since the final is comprehensive, and this course covers a lot
of material, one question is how to study for it? Good question...
Here's my answer:
- How To Study for the Final
There is a Study Guide covering the
last week of the class. The last-week guide, together with the study guides for the 4 in-class
quizzes, you will give you a complete study guide for the Final
Exam. Your best study guide for the first 9 weeks, however, is
your four in-class quizzes as described on the
how-to study page.
Getting Your Final Exam Scores & Grades
In a class of this size, individual email requests are too difficult to
process efficiently, as we must be very careful to observe all of the
many privacy safeguards mandated by federal law under FERPA. In
short, we do not have the human resources needed to respond to
individual email requests - it simply takes too much of our time
(approximately 15 minutes per request). As such, we cannot
respond to email requests for grades or other grade information. We
apologize for the inconvience. All the necessary grades and other info
will be posted on Carmen as soon as
it is ready to release.
