Exams: A portion of the exams will be multiple choice and students will be required to record their answers on scantron forms so these forms may be submitted to Schreyer Institute for evaluation. Students are required to fill out their PSU ID number and the correct exam form on the exam scantron sheets and to go to the assigned room for the exam. Failure to do any of these will result in the exam NOT being graded by Schreyer Institute and a score of zero (0) will be recorded for the exam. Note that the evening exams may be rescheduled to in-class exams at the discretion of Dr. Quick. CSE 121
