HOSP594Midterm Study Guide

YOU MAY WANT TO PRINT THIS GUIDE.

1.The Midterm is open book and open notes. The maximum time you can spend in the exam is 3hours. If you have not clicked the Submit For Grading button by then, you will be automatically exited from the exam. In the exam environment, the Windows clipboard is disabled, so you will not be able to copy exam questions or answers to or from other applications.

2. You should click the Save Answers button in the exam frequently.
This helps prevent connection timeouts that might occur with certain Internet service providers and also minimizes lost answers in the event of connection problems. If your Internet connection does break, when you reconnect, you will normally be able to get back into your Midterm without any trouble. Remember, though, that the exam timer continues to run while students are disconnected, so students should try to login again as quickly as possible. The Help Desk cannot grant any student additional time on the exam.

3.See the Syllabus section “Due Dates for Assignments & Exams” for due date information.

4. Reminders

  • You will only be able to enter your online Midterm one time.
  • Click the Save Answers button often.
  • If you lose your Internet connection during your Midterm, logon again and try to access your Midterm. If you are unable to enter the Midterm, first contact the Help Desk and then your instructor.
  • You will always be able to see the time remaining in the Midterm at the top right of the page.

5. Assessments With Multiple Pages

  • Make sure you click the Save Answers button before advancing to the next page (we also suggest clicking on Save Answers while you are working).
  • Complete all of the pages before submitting your Midterm for instructor review.
  • Do NOT use your browser’s Back and Forward buttons during the Midterm.
  • Please use the provided links for navigation.

6. Submitting Your Midterm

  • When you are finished with the Midterm, click on the Submit for Grading button.
  • Please note: Once you click the Submit for Grading button, you will NOT be able to edit or change any of your answers.

7. Exam Questions

  • There are five randomly selected multiplechoice questions each worth 4 points for a total of 20 points.
  • There are 10 randomly selected essay questions each worth 8 points for a total of 80 points.
  • The Midterm covers TCOs A–G and Weeks 1–4.
  • The Midterm contains three pages, which can be completed in any order. You may go back and forth between the pages.

·        The Midterm questions are pooled. This means that not everyone will have the same questions.  Even if you do have some of the same questions, they may not be in the same order. These questions are distributed amongst the TCOs. The entire exam is worth 100 points.

·        On the essay questions, your answers should be succinct, should fully address each part of the question, and should demonstrate your knowledge and understanding in a concise but complete answer. Most essay questions require answers that are a couple of paragraphs (not a couple of sentences) that directly speak to each part of the question. Some students opt to work on the essay questions first, due to their higher point value and the length of time needed to adequately address each question, but this is entirely your choice.

·        Remember to always use proper citation when quoting other sources. This means that ANY borrowed material (even a short phrase) should be placed in quotation marks with the source (URL, author/date/page #) immediately following the end of the passage (the end quote). Changing a few words in a passage does NOT constitute putting it in your own words, and proper citation is still required. Borrowed material should NOT dominate a student’s work but should only be used sparingly to support your own thoughts, ideas, and examples. Heavy usage of borrowed material (even if properly cited) can jeopardize the points for that question. Uncited material can jeopardize a passing grade on the exam. As a part of our commitment to academic integrity, your work may be submitted to turnitin.com, an online plagiarism checking service. Please be VERY mindful of proper citation.
