1. ABET PRE-TESTING IEMS has implemented pretesting in this course in order to ensure that student prerequisite knowledge is sufficient for success in the course. Data from these pretests will also be used to identify potential areas for improvement in the IEMS curriculum and as support for future accreditation evaluations. You must score at least 70% on the pretest in order to pass this course. However, you may take the pretest as many times as you wish in order to achieve this score. Feedback will be provided at the end of each attempt pointing out concepts that you should review before a subsequent attempt. Note that informational questions (such as “Are you currently declared as an IE major?”) do not count towards your score on the pretest.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
