FINAL EXAMS Per Module • ALL exams are completed on site at ALGONQUIN COLLEGE IN DESIGNATED LABS. • You must achieve a minimum of 50% in an exam order to pass a module • ALGONQUIN STUDENT ID CARDS will be checked for ALL exams • Exams are password protected
REWRITES • • TIMING IS EVERYTHING – pay attention to the schedule. All exams must be done within the designated time frames • The REWRITE week is for students who failed an exam ONLY. – Up to 2 failed exams (grade of less than 50%) may be rewritten during the scheduled REWRITE week – No other extensions will be allowed – – ie a 3 rd failed exam or missed exam deadline means an immediate "F" on the course. • The maximum grade you can get for a REWRITE exam is 65%
REWRITES – An exam not completed by the deadline specified in the schedule will be considered a “failed exam”. – IF you DO miss an exam early in the course that you then-can only rewrite 1 other exam. • FYI: Later exams, especially Excel, & Word are more difficult. Missed exams should be reserved for situations where you absolutely cannot attend the exam, for medical reasons, OR: extreme extenuating circumstances.
TO SUMMARIZE THE EVALUATION • To pass the course a student must end the course with an overall grade of 50% or better, • AND • Must pass each of the 4 exams with a grade of 50% or better. • This means that a student who ends the course with a failing grade on even one exam, fails the course.
Cheating • Cheating is grounds for dismissal • Exams are “locked down”, so you are unable to open other programs • To write any exam, you need to produce a ALGONQUIN COLLEGE STUDENT ID CARD. • The purpose of the training is to teach you what you don’t know, so you can pass your final.
