There are several exam days and one make-up day.

    • No backpacks, notebooks, binder or other materials are allowed.
    • Just bring your pencil (and water/snack).
    • Do not plan to use the washroom during class on testing days. If you must leave the room, an escort may be required. (A break is provided on the long day.)
    • If your phone or other device is visible (in-class, on testing day), you must redo that day’s portion of the exam on the Make-Up Day. Until you do this, your grade will be IE. This grade may be revised once the entire test is complete and you have turned in all assignments.
