There will be 5 tests, worth 100 points each. There will also be a comprehensive final exam which may be used to take the place of the lowest previous test score. This use is optional, and carries no penalty for trying (if the grade for the final is lower it doesn't count).
All make-up tests are essay format. Arrangements for a make-up test must be made before the scheduled test date, and are subject to instructor approval. Make-up tests must be taken within one week, or the comprehensive final exam becomes the make-up test.
Test questions will primarily cover material from lecture, but may also include lab-related questions, and will consist of some combination of multiple choice, true or false, matching, and/or short answer.
