There are three exams for the class. Each exam will be an in class exam that consists of objective/ multiple-choice questions. The final exam will be cumulative. These exams will test your knowledge and mastery over course lectures, readings, films, and other course materials. Except under unusual circumstances, there will be NO early exams or make-up exams (you over sleeping or wanting to go home early is not a valid reasons).
A note on Jeopardy: Prior to each exam, we will have a Jeopardy style review session. Based on participation score (Jeopardy score) for that section of the course, 8-10 students will be selected to participate in jeopardy. The winning team will be exempt from taking the exam (and receive a perfect score for the exam). Other teams will receive extra credit toward the exam. For Jeopardy purposes, participation scores will be reset after each exam.
NOTE: WHILE THESE STUDENTS WILL PARTICIPATE IN JEOPARDY, THE REVIEW IS FOR EVERY STUDENT. The review will also come from my explanation and discussion of various questions and answers.
