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. You will lose points if you do not follow the grammar when writing programs!

When you write code on this test, you may use anything in the [appropriate] programming model. The problem will say which model is appropriate.

You are encouraged to define functions or procedures not specifically asked for if they are useful to your programming; however, if they are not built-in to the language or its base environment, then you must write them into your test.

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
