Exam Rules

The following rules pertain to this exam:

I give many exams in the Testing Center, in the basement of the McDermott Library. For such exams, you will follow Testing Center rules, including not being permitted to bring in anything, such as notes, a calculator, or a cell phone. The test will auto-submit at the end of the allotted time and your work will be saved. However, you will be unable to work on the test past the time allowed.

Rules for Paper Exams:
1. This exam is timed. You may turn the page and start when I announce the start and you will put your pencils or pens down and stop writing when I announce the stop time. I may extend the stop time, but nominally you have 1 hour 15 minutes. You will lose 20 points if you are still writing after time is called.
2. When time is called, pass your paper to your left and remain seated until I have collected all papers.
3. If you finish before 3 minutes prior to the stop time you may hand in your paper and leave. If it is after 3 minutes before the end, please remain seated until time is called.
4. Please look at the seating chart on the door as you enter and sit in your assigned seat. If you sit anywhere else you will lose 20 points.
5. Have your Comet card or other photo ID on the desk in front of you during the exam.
6. This test is closed book and closed notes. You will not need a calculator or other electronics.
7. Hand in all papers, including scratch paper, that you use during the exam.
8. Tests in the classroom will usually require a blue Scantron card, form 19641. You will be assigned a Student ID for this class that you will use for the duration of the semester. Use this number on the form, not your UTD ID. (Never put your UTD ID on anything. This is different from your NetID, which is the same as your e-mail address.) Here is what a properly filled out ScanTron Form looks like.

Notes for all exams:
1. If you have a question, raise your hand. I will come to you.
2. When answering an essay question, please do not repeat the question in your answer. For example, if the question is "Give an example of polymorphism," you do not need to begin your answer with "An example of polymorphism is...".
3. Read the questions and problems carefully so you answer the question being asked and answer all parts fully.
