The home exam is now available in Bilda (in "Documents"). It was uploaded slightly before 08.00 on Sunday morning December 12. You have 24 hours to complete the exam and upload it (.doc or .pdf file) to the folder "home exam" in Bilda.
Do note that you can replace an exam with a later version - so it might be a good idea to upload an almost-finished version just to be on the safe side!
Read the instructions for the exam carefully and follow them! If something needs to be clarified, please pose your question here, I will check out the blog at least a couple of times during Sunday.
You can get a maximum of 25 points on the exam. I'm not really fond of allowing late exams to be handed in but (at least) one student has an ok reason for having to hand in the exam late and I do take into account that you are writing this exam on a Sunday. Late exams should be uploaded to the "late home exam" folder.
- I will deduct 3.5 points (~15% of the maximum number of points) from exams that are handed in up to 10 hours late (e.g. before 18.00 Monday night).
- I will deduct 6 points (~25% of the maximum number of points) from exams that are handed in up to 24 hours late (e.g. before 08.00 Tuesday morning). A 6-point deduction corresponds to a lowering of the grade with one step (a B becomes a C etc.)
- Exams that are handed in later than 24 hours after the deadline automatically fail and will not be graded. You will then have to do the exam again at a later point in time. It will obviously not be easier to pass the exam the second time around so please make sure to hand it in (in time).
After these admonitions, I'd like to end this blog post by wishing you all good luck!
PS. I glanced at the course evaluations and will get back here, on this blog, with some feedback, but since I go away and will not bring the course evaluations with me, that will have to wait until January.
