Exam Correction and Analysis 1) Go through your exam and enter the number of each question for which you lost points in the “Question” column on the chart. Be sure to separate questions with multiple parts. For example, if question 5 has three parts (a,b,c) and you lost points on parts a and b, then enter 5a and 5b separately on the chart. 2) For each question in your chart, compare your answer to the one listed on the key, determine why you lost the points based upon the information below, and enter the number of points you lost in the appropriate column. After you have gone through the entire exam, total up the number of points you lost for each of the types of errors. You will be given a copy of the key when you receive your exam. 3) Lastly, look through your class notes and written answers to discussion section activities. If the information necessary to answer the question is in your notes or our activities, put a check mark in the “In notes” column; if this information is not in your notes or homework answers, put a check mark in the “Not in notes” column. Total the number of check marks in each column at the bottom of the chart.
