EXAMS

  1. There will be four midterm exams, each covering the respective sections of the course.  A final exam will not be given.  Each midterm exam will account for 25% of your final score.
  2. Exams will be computer-graded and consist of multiple-choice questions. Make every effort to take exams as scheduled.
  3. Make-up exam formats may be oral, multiple-choice questions, essays, or a combination of all formats.
  4. Exams will emphasize but will not necessarily be confined to the material presented in class.
  5. Maintenance of academic integrity at all times is an essential part of the pursuit of science as a career. Cheating on examinations in any setting may serve as grounds for dismissal from the course.
