Midterm Exam, Form B
Put your full name, your student ID number and the particular Form letter (Form A or Form
B) that appears on your exam. For each question, one of the four answers is correct. Even if you have a
doubt, select the BEST of the four answers. Each question is worth 3 points, so you have an opportunity to
earn 75 points toward your final grade.
Place your answers on both the Scantron sheet and
the examination. Note that stray marks, poor erasures of
changed answers, and multiple answers to the same question, on your Scantron sheet will cause you to lose
points during machine grading, and will not be changed on appeal
! You are responsible for ensuring that
your Scantron sheet correctly corresponds to your answer choices.
The best procedure for you to follow is to
mark your answers on the exam which you will take home. After you have answered all questions and
reviewed your answers, then copy them onto the Scantron answer sheet.
Turn in the Scantron sheet to the TAs, but keep the examination with your answers noted on it. This way
you can learn how you did by checking your answers against the answer key which will be posted on the
course website, usually the within 24 hours of the exam. This posting will include the examination with the
answers noted in bold, and with the exact location/s of the answers in the readings or lectures noted in
parentheses next to the answer (e.g., Ch. 1, p. 12, line 3).
