Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The final exam for FI 360 will be the assessment tool used for this course. The exam will be comprehensive and the grade used to determine competency levels achieved by the students. The exam will be closed book and closed notes. The exam consists of multiple choice questions covering the chapter readings in the course and problems that examine the critical thinking, effective communication skills and technical skills of the student. Partial credit will be given for the problems.
The final examination will be taken in person during the 8th week of instruction at one of the Park University sites around the country or at an alternative location approved by your Instructor where Park University sites are not available.
It will be the responsibility of the student to arrange for a proctor, by the 6th week of the term. The proctor will be accepted and approved by the instructor. Park University site administrators or adjunct faculty are preferred proctors, but K-12 school teachers, counselors or administrators, certified librarians, testing centers at accredited colleges or universities are acceptable. Approved proctors may also include U.S. Embassy officials, military education officers, or testing control officers at U.S. military bases. Excluded from approval as proctors are family members, relatives, neighbors, friends, clergy, and employers, supervisors and co-workers.
For proctored examinations, photo identification is required at the time of the test. A proctor request form will be made available to you during the first week of class so that you can send your requested proctor to me for approval. Failure to take a final proctored exam will result in an automatic loss of points assigned to the final examination.
