- As indicated in the course outline:
- There will be a 3-hour final exam whose time will
be announced later by the registrar's office. It will be a closed book,
closed note, no electronics comprehensive exam. It will cover those portions
of the textbook that have been assigned as well as understanding of the
in-class course work.
- The final exam counts 35% of the course mark.
- The final exam will be closed book, closed notes, with no electronic devices allowed, with particular reference to any electronic devices that are capable
of communication and/or storing information.
- Note that on each page I ask for your UWO email address. Print neatly
as this will be key in reconstructing your answers if your pages get separated.
- The final exam consists of this cover page and 8 questions, one question
per side of a page. Separately, there is a packet of 6 sheets of paper:
2 sheets of paper reference material constructed by the class on the
textbook material; and 1 sheet of paper for each of the programming languages
is identical to that posted on the course web page last Tuesday evening.
For purposes of judging exam answers, the textbook is more authoritative
than the reference material on the textbook included with the exam; however,
the 4 language specific reference sheets are as authoritative as the textbook.
- The 8 questions can be viewed as 4 of each of two types. The first
four questions are questions designed to elicit PEA (point example analysis or
explanation of how example illustrates point)
style answers (whose marking is then driven by how easily one can identify
the three parts of the answer and how well they answer the question asked)
that we practiced in the first two practice quizzes and also
occurred on the midterm. These questions are asking you to make a judgement
and defend your position. The second set of four questions are about
applying book information in relatively standard ways (like the parsing
question from the midterm) with perhaps some accompanying explanation.
This is a 3 hour exam, which means you have
roughly 20 minutes per question and then 20 minutes to check over your
work before handing it in. You are encouraged to get the questions you
feel most confident about out of the way first and to make sure you don't
leave any answer blank.
- Answer the questions in the space provided below the question.
If you can't manage this, continue onto the back of the exam, which looks
much like the back of the midterm. If this also is not enough room,
do not put your answer on the reference pages. Instead ask for scrap
paper (which you then must put your name and email address on as well as
the number of whatever question is being answered).
