Test 2 (Spring 2018)

Opens: Monday, April 9, 2018 at 12:00AM UTC-12 (Anywhere on Earth), on Proctortrack. Due: Sunday, April 15, 2018, by 11:59PM UTC-12 (Anywhere on Earth), through Proctortrack.

Test Content

Test 2 will cover the material the following material:

  • Lessons 2.7 through 2.10
  • Lessons 3.5 through 3.8
  • Readings for Weeks 7 through 13

The exam will consist of 30 five-answer multi-correct multiple-choice questions. 20 questions will come from the lectures, roughly evenly distributed between the Unit 2 and Unit 3 lessons. 10 questions will come from the readings, roughly evenly distributed across the readings for weeks 7 through 13.

Each of the 30 five-answer multi-correct multiple-choice questions is eligible for partial credit. You will receive one point for each answer you correctly select, and one point for each answer you correctly leave unselected. For example, imagine the question, “Which of these are planets?” with the options Earth, the Moon, the Sun, Jupiter, and Mercury. If you were to select “Earth”, “the Moon”, and “Jupiter”, you would receive three points: two points for correctly selecting “Earth” and “Jupiter”, and one point for correctly leaving “the Sun” unselected.

Every question has between 1 and 4 correct answers; there is no question where no options are correct or where all options are correct. No credit will be given on any question for which you select no answers or all the answers; this is to prevent blank or completely-filled in submissions aiming for half credit with no subject matter knowledge.

You will have 120 minutes to complete the test, and you are permitted to use books, notes, or the course video material. You may not interact with anyone during the exam, but you may visit the course Piazza forum if you would like as long as you do not post.
