video server going down), this should be a good backup plan. Unit Exams Unit Exams will be based on the Learning Objectives, the Study Guide for the Case Studies for the Unit (posted on D2L), and all the “Practice Questions”. Again, what are the Practice Questions? The practice questions include the Comprehension Checks (answered in videos posted on D2L), the Study Questions (after the Learning Objectives in the Course Pack), Extra Study Questions (in the Appendix of the Course Pack), Challenge Questions and Reading Questions and the ANSWERS to those questions (in the Appendix of the Course Pack), and the Homework questions and ANSWERS to the Homework questions (posted on D2L). The student is encouraged to become familiar with the format of the exam questions by using the Comprehension Checks and Study Questions in the Course Pack. A note of caution when responding to exam questions: take care when answering all exam questions; choices made on the scantron answer sheet which are not options for the exam questions will be marked incorrect without exception. The student needs to be 5

sure that their choices match the available choices (for example, if your answer is C and there is no answer C in the question, it will be marked wrong.) Some exam questions will be similar to the Practice Questions. Many of these questions will be “changed” to make exam questions (a multiple choice question changed to a true/false question would be an example of a “changed” question. Replacing the word increase with decrease can make a “changed” question. Taking two or more “easy” questions to make one more challenging question can make a “changed” question. You can look through the Study Questions and find examples of “changed” questions). Other questions on an exam will be entirely NEW questions, not based on particular practice questions, but based on Learning Objectives, ANSWERS to the Challenge Questions and Reading Questions, readings assigned with the Challenge Questions and Reading Questions, or based on the Study Guide for the Case Studies for the Unit. There will be 5 Unit Exams in the course (see “Schedule for Hybrid PSL 310 Fall 2018” for material covered on each exam and the date of each exam). The last Unit Exam (Unit 5 Exam) will be given during the Common Final Exam time for PSL 310. THERE IS NO CUMULATIVE FINAL EXAM IN THIS COURSE. All students must bring their student ID to all exams and #2 pencils. There will be 42 exam questions on each Unit Exam. Exam questions will be 2 to 5 item multiple choice, true/false, and perhaps some matching questions. An “Exam Procedure” document will be posted on D2L that all students must read and understand before our first exam. Make-up exams Make-up exams will be given sparingly and only if the student provides clear documentation of a valid medical excuse or other emergency* - a slip from the emergency room or a note from a doctor’s office that verifies your illness on the day of the exam would work (see ** below), just “not feeling well” won’t work.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
