Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
There is a final exam consisting of 13 True or False
questions, 25 Multiple Choice questions and four short answer essay questions.
Please note when assignments are due.
A final proctored examination will be taken in a proctored testing environment during the 8th week at one of the Park University sites around the country or at an alternative location. For proctored examinations, photo identification is required at the time of the test. Guidelines for selecting an acceptable proctor can be found on the Park University Website.
Other Information on proctored exams:
It will be the responsibility of the student to arrange for a proctor, by the 6th week of the term, who is accepted and approved by the course instructor.
Approval of proctors is the discretion of the Online instructor.
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 your instructor for approval.
Failure to take a final proctored exam (or submit your final project for some online graduate courses) will result in an automatic "F" grade.
