By now, many of you have checked Blackboard, discovered your grade on the final exam, and can not believe you did that well. As a result, you would like to look at the exam to see how you could possibly have gotten so much credit for your answers.

Trying to accomodate this burning desire, we have made the exams available for you to look at. To have some semblance of order to all this, the process is as follows:

1. See my secretary (usually, 8 am to 5pm, Monday through Friday in ENS 541).

2. Show her your student ID.

3. She will have you sign the log, and hand you your exam, which you are welcome to look at in her office. You can take as long as you wish. When you are through looking at it, return it to her, and sign out of the logbook.

4. If you find an error in the grading, tell her that when you hand back the exam and also tell her the problem(s) that I need to look at. She will put those numbers on a post-it on the front of exam, and give me the exam. If there is any change, I will notify you. If it affects your final grade, I will submit a grade change form, correcting your grade on your record. (Please check your exam carefully. We do not make many mistakes in grading the final, but we are not perfect either. If an error we made affects the grade I assigned, I need to fix it.)

If you leave town before you have had a chance to look at your final exam, I encourage you to look at it after you get back. The above procedure will be available to you throughout January. At some point in the future, I will make your final exam available to you to keep.

Have a great vacation. Good luck in the Spring.
