MIDTERM EXAMINATION 1 NAME:  _____________________ BIOMI 331 or VETMI 331 MIDTERM EXAMINATION 1 GENERAL PARASITOLOGY (BIOMI 331 or VETMI 331) SPRING SEMESTER, March 6, 2001 PLEASE BE CERTAIN TO RECORD YOUR NAME ON THE BUBBLE SHEET. THIS SHEET WILL BE USED FOR GRADING. Examinations: Each of the two examinations will consist of 50 multiple-choice questions, with only a single correct answer per question. The examinations should be easily taken within the 50 minute period that will be available. Keys will be posted as soon as it is verified that all students have taken the exam. I may change how a question is graded if it becomes obvious from class performance that it was written incorrectly or in an ambiguous manner. Answers are recorded on bubble sheets and graded by machine. I will try and return all examinations within one week. Grades: Each question on each examination will be worth 2 points. Thus, there will be a total of 300 points in the course . Your final numeric total divided by 3 will determine your grade. Rounding is performed by the simple method that any fraction over a whole number will be rounded to the next whole number, i.e., 89.009, 89.1, and 89.7 will all equal 90. Grades will be based on the Cornell formula: <60 F, 60-62 D-, 63-65 D, 66-69 D+, 70-72 C-, 73-75 C, 76-79 C+, 80-82 B-, 83-85 B, 86-89 B+, 90-92 A-, 93-95 A, 96-100 A+. Extra credit: There will be extra credit reports accepted. They will be worth 4 points that will be assigned after all other grading & rounding is performed on the examination. There purpose is for those who want to change a grade by a small margin. I will assign topics on the next examination. Page 1 of 6
