Exams are formal assessments designed to measure student learning of the objectives and skills required in this course. They are graded based on a rubric included at the end of their instructions.

Exams are closed book, closed notes, and closed Internet. The only allowed outside resource is the built-in Microsoft Help system. The use of cameras, cell phones, smart watches, tablets, or other communications devices is prohibited. Talking or communicating with others is also prohibited.

These are assignments are available at a URL provided by the instructor. Students will have 50 continuous minutes each for Exam #1 and 90 continuous minutes for Exam #2. Exams must be completed in one sitting. If students arrive late, leave early, or miss the Exam entirely, any lost time if forfeited. Students in in-person sections must take their exam in-class at the scheduled time, or if they have an accessibility accommodation, in the OAS Testing Center. Students in online sections may self-proctor their exams.

Students are responsible for having access to a computer with the Windows version of Microsoft Office and a reliable Internet connection to complete their exams.

If you wish to reschedule an Exam because of a schedule conflict, scheduled event, or Day of Concern, you must notify your instructor at least one week prior to the day the exam begins. If you miss an Exam because of a personal, family, or medical emergency, you must notify your instructor within 48 hours of the scheduled start time to request a makeup exam. Documentation may be required. Other requests for makeup exams will generally not be accepted.

All rescheduled or makeup exams are at the instructor’s discretion. They must be completed within 4 weekdays of the scheduled exam day (Exam #1) or at the announced makeup session (Exam #2).

Aside from cases where there was an instructor-approved makeup exam, exam submissions will not be accepted after the exam deadline. Students are responsible for ensuring their exam was correctly submitted prior to the deadline.
