Final Quiz Preparation

You will have 60 minutes (plus 1 minute of grace period) to complete the final quiz in D2L. The quiz is "closed book" meaning that you cannot consult any materials, books, websites, papers, etc. during the quiz. 

The quiz has 33 questions which are worth 3 points apiece on a 100 point scale.

Some of the questions from the weekly quizzes are on the final quiz. Some of these questions might have been reworded, so make sure that you read the questions carefully. Since the final quiz is worth 20% of your final grade, it will be graded harder than your weekly quizzes which were very lightly graded. In order to get 3 points for a question, you must answer the whole question correctly. There is no partial credit for questions.
