Standard Exam Instructions

The following instructions will appear in the instructions for each of the exams.

This test is open book and notes.

If you need more space, use the back of a page. Note when you do that on the front.

Before you begin, please take a moment to look over the entire test so that you can budget your time.

Clarity is important; if your programs are sloppy and hard to read, you may lose some points. Correct syntax also makes a difference for programming questions.

When you write Oz code on this test, you may use anything in the [appropriate] model (as in chapters [...] of our textbook). The problem will say which model is appropriate. However, you must not use imperative features (such as cells and assignment) or the library functions IsDet and IsFree.

You are encouraged to define functions or procedures not specifically asked for if they are useful to your programming; however, if they are not in the Oz base environment, then you must write them into your test. (This means you can use functions in the Oz base environment such as Append, Map, etc.)

During the test, if you need more space for an answer, use the back of a page. Note when you do that on the front.

Old Exams

The old-exams directory contains directories of old exams given in this and previous semesters. This includes the directory old-exams/Fall06, which contains old exams given for a graduate course when Gary was at Iowa State (and thus may not be so appropriate).
