FINAL EXAMINATION DECEMBER 2007 NAME: ___________________ BIOMI 431 or VETMI 431 ID No.: ___________________ FINAL EXAMINATION MEDICAL PARASITOLOGY BIOMI 431 or VETMI 431 DATE: December 7, December 12, and December 14 2007 PLEASE WRITE YOUR NAME ON EVERY PAGE. ALSO, RECORD YOUR ID NUMBER IF YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS. Examinations : Each examination will consist of 50 multiple-choice questions, with only a single correct answer per question. Keys will be posted as soon as it is verified that all students have taken the exam. I will 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 also ask that answers be recorded on the test paper itself. It is probably going to take me a week to get this back to you, mainly because I will be out of town. I will get it aback as fast as I can. 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., 91.009, 91.1, and 91.7 will all equal 92. 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+ AT THE END OF THE EXAM, THERE THREE QUESTIONS (51-53) THAT ARE EACH WORTH 1 (ONE) POINT THAT WILL BE ADDED TO YOUR TOTAL GRADE BEFORE IT IS ROUNDED. THIS MEANS THAT YOU WILL HAVE THE CHANCE TO TURN AN OVERALL COURSE GRADE OF 83.3 INTO AN 86.3 BY SIMPLY GETTING ALL THREE CORRECT. DON'T SKIP THESE THREE QUESTIONS!!! ALSO, I GIVE YOU PERMISSION TO POST MY GRADE FOR THIS EXAMINATION BY ID NUMBER ON THE COURSE WEB SITE : YES NO SIGNED:____________________________
