Notice: Test 4 Handback
Test 4 is now available from the Handback Room.
Dates and times
The dates of the tests are given in the Schedule page and on the List of Assignments and Tests page. They take place during the class periods. These times are fixed. If you miss a test, there is no opportunity to retake it.
The tests are 40 minutes in length. Each test has two questions on material that has been covered in the video lectures, up to and including the lectures for the week of the test.
You are expected to have studied the video lectures before the tests. You may look at the course slides during the examination, but you are not permitted to watch or listen to the videos.
The following are allowed during the tests:
The tests are open book. You may bring any books or notes.
The following are not allowed during the tests:
You may not listen to any audio materials or view the video lectures.
No electronic device may be used for any form of communication, or any activity that involves networking, including email, texting, or searching the web.
In calculating the final grade, the grades on the best six questions will be used (out of the total of eight).

Return of tests and regrade requests
Return of tests
The graded tests will be returned in class, usually during the week following the date of the test. For the next ten days, any answer books not picked up in class can be picked up from Gates Hall 216, from 12:00 to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except during university breaks. You will need your Cornell ID and you will not be able to pick up an assignment for another student.
If you think there is a grading error, you may request a regrade. To request a regrade, contact me after class, come to my office hours, or send me email.
No regrade request will be considered more than ten days after the tests are returned.
Grading mistakes will be corrected, but points will not be changed when the grade is determined by the grader's judgment.
