11. Exams

Exams assess your knowledge and understanding of the course materials in a summative fashion. They provide an evaluation of your learning of the materials in a particular segment of the course. While exams are designed to gauge what you learned, they can help you learn as well. By going back through an exam once you have taken it, you may discover things you missed and figure out how to better study the new materials that follow.

Four online exams worth 125 points each will be given this semester. Exams cover the materials listed below; the final exam is comprehensive. You may earn a maximum of 500 points taking exams in this course. Exams may consist of multiple choice, matching, short answer, essay and skills-based questions. Exams cover readings in Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, The Remarkable Ocean World of Jules Verne: A Study Guide forTwenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and additional web pages of information from our course web site. It is your responsibility to use the course web site and any other relevant web sites to find answers to the exams. Knowing where to find information is a skill you will develop in this course.

Questions come from the Self-Test section, the Thought Questions section and lecture notes on The Remarkable Ocean World web site. You will have 90 minutes to complete the exam from the moment you click on Begin Quiz. Exams may be taken up to three times but the scores will be averaged. Also, you must wait 24 hours between attempts and exam questions will vary with each attempt. After you complete an exam, you will be able to see your score and the questions you missed. However, you will not be given the correct answers for the exam until after the exam period is over.
