There will be three exams during the semester. The dates of these are documented in the class schedule. There will be no impromptu (‘pop’) quizzes or exams.
The last two exams are hands-on technical exercises completed in a fixed amount of time. The instructor will provide references, if any, that the student may use during the exam. When possible, exams are conducted in class, and you must use a workstation in the classroom to complete the exam. No other electronic device is to be used for the exams. If the preferred arrangement is not possible, then the exams will be administered remotely via Proctorio or a similar online proctoring service.
Proctorio, and other services like it, may verify your identity and record online actions and surroundings. It is your responsibility to have the necessary government or school issued ID, a laptop or desktop computer with a reliable internet connection, Google Chrome and the Proctorio extension, a webcam/built-in camera and microphone, and all the system requirements for using Proctorio, Zoom, or a similar proctoring tool. Before the exam begins, the proctor may require a scan of the room in which you are taking the exam.
Make-up exams will not be given. Exceptions are reserved for documented hospitalization or other extreme circumstances. If an exception is made, students may find the content of the make-up exam to be more difficult than the original. It is, therefore, to the student’s advantage to show up for the exam at the scheduled time and take it with the rest of the class.
