Course Evals/SSCI Post-test

The SSCI exam does not count against student grades, but it can give a bonus towards the final exam as follows:

1) Improvement award: Students that improve their overall score (compared to their score from the 2nd day of the semester) by at least 10 points will receive 2 extra credit points on the final exam

2) High-score award: Students that score at least 20 (out of 25 points) will receive 2 extra credit points on the final exam

FINAL EXAM

1330, 13DEC17

Rickover 61

FINAL EXAM is comprehensive, but weighted towards untested material (i.e. since the 12-week exam). 

- The exam will be based on the objectives, which are listed on the link from the front page of the website.

- Students have may have 2 one-sided 8.5x11 handwritten equation sheets (or one two-sided equation sheet)

- Students will be provided with O&W Tables 3.1, 3.2, 4.1, 4.2, 5.1, 5.2, 9.1, 9.2

- The exam will be broken up as follows: (20 pts) MATLAB portion (particularly based on objectives in lesson 36); (30 pts) multiple choice portion; (50 pts) written portion

- For the MATLAB portion, students must work on their own laptop, and will only be able to access the MATLAB help and doc.

- Students may not access the internet or any other class materials except for the handwritten equation sheets.
