Tests must be taken with the class on the designated date. No make‑up tests will be allowed. If it is necessary for you to miss an exam, the final exam (multiple choice) will count as two exams. Notify the instructor before missing an exam. It may be possible for you to take it with another class.
A. Tests Will Be Composed Of
Objective multiple choice, true‑false, and/or matching questions designed to test your knowledge, understanding and application of the basic information, terms, concepts, theories, and research data.
B. Grading of Tests
In the grading of multiple choice and matching items, the student may disagree with the answer designated as correct, though an effort will be made to keep these questions clear and direct. To receive consideration for additional credit for his/her answer, the student must explain in writing his/her reasoning for the answer selected and/or his/her interpretation of the question and answers. These justifications must be written within a week after the test grades are posted.
What should be in your journal? Try to answer the questions below:
How did you feel about the chapter as a whole? What were the emotional highs and lows? Why did you feel as you did? Is your inner self trying to tell you anything about these feelings?
Did you find yourself worrying about anything that was in the chapter?
Last, it is important to be honest when writing journals. 'Write how you really feel and not how you think you should feel. Record what you really think, not what you believe you ought to think' (Klug 2002: 56).
