6. Final Exam (40%) The final exam will be a closed-book exam, which is designed to test your knowledge of the assigned readings, cases, and text material. It may consist of one or different types of questions (e.g., case scenario/vignette, essay style, short answer, multiple-choice, problems). The only electronic device allowed will be a basic (non-text-capable) calculator and the only other material allowed will be a hard-copy English- language dictionary. This course is not quantitatively oriented. Thus, the Final Exam will not emphasize on problem sets, mathematics, or quantitative techniques. Nevertheless, you should master a limited set of analytical techniques included in this course. The details of the exam will be discussed in class, as we approach the exam date. OTHER INFORMATION AND REQUIREMENTS Peer Evaluation Form for group work: At the end of the course, students are required to fill out a Peer Evaluation Form for the group work performed during the course, including Group Case Analysis Reports, Group Assignment, and Group Presentation. This form is confidential and will give the students the opportunity to assess the performance of their groupmates. Class seating and name cards : Please choose a permanent seat at the beginning of our second session. As well, bring your name cards to each session . I need to learn your names quickly; these arrangements help me to do so. Deferments : No make-up mid-term exams and no extensions for assignments, case reflection reports, and group presentations will be provided. If you have a valid reason (medical or other as specified in Asper’s Policy on Accommodations for Missed Undergraduate Term Examinations) for missing the mid-term exams or the presentation, your score will be adjusted to the final exam.
Page 9 of 15 Revision: Aug. 9, 2017 Course materials: The lecture notes will be posted on UM Learn after each session . Please check UM Learn regularly for course material, updates, and news. Preparation for course sessions: You are expected to be fully engaged in the entire learning process. This means devoting time and energy to preparation before class, attending group meetings, listening to others during class discussions, and engaging in class discussions. Using the notes/information from others who have experienced the course material (including cases) in a previous semester or other venues is a violation of Academic Integrity. Other: Detailed note-taking during class can often be distracting for others and counter- productive to your own learning. Be selective in taking notes during class. At the end of each class, or at the end of the day, it is a good idea to consolidate what you have learned. Using your computer during class for personal activities such as reading/writing emails or letters, surfing the Web, playing games, etc. is distracting and counter-productive. I expect you to keep your laptop closed unless you are using it in connection with the class. Please turn off and put your cell phones away before the class starts, and do not bring your lunch to class. Drinks are fine.
