Exam #1

The format of all exams in the course is simple multiple choice. For this reason, I do not provide practice exams.

The exam must be started and completed under the supervision of an ecampus-approved proctor within a window that begins on May 1 at 8:00 a.m. U.S. Pacific time and ends at 5:00 p.m. U.S. Pacific time on May 3.

Windows for beginning proctored exams (such as on Proctor U) close somewhat before the window described here closes. You MUST be sure to get your proctored exam started within the window of the proctor. This is your responsiblity and failure to get this taken care of may result in a score of zero.

You may not use notes or calculators on this exam. If you are using ProctorU please note that you will ONLY be allowed to use a whiteboard or chalkboard for scratch paper. No other type of scratch paper is allowed. If you are not using Proctor U, you may use a blank piece of scratch paper provided by your proctor.

I will provide you with access to your answers and the correct answers for this exam AFTER the window for taking it has completely closed.
