Fall Quarter 2019

Final Examination Policies | Spring 2019 Final Exam Schedule | Spring 2019 Final Exam Schedule by Time Block | Fall 2019 Final Exam Schedule | Fall 2019 Final Exam Schedule by Time Block

Final Examination Schedule Revisions

Beginning fall quarter 2016, please note that changes were made to the final examination schedule.

The schedule for final examinations has been revised to add final examinations on Fridays during the fall and winter quarters in addition to the scheduled finals on Monday through Thursday. Spring final examinations will still be scheduled Monday through Thursday in spring 2019. The final examination schedules forspring 2019 and fall 2019 can be found below.

Final Examination Policies

Final examinations are required in all undergraduate courses unless the department or other agency sponsoring the course has obtained permission from the Committee on Educational Policy to evaluate students in another manner.

Final examinations are only given during the examination-week period at the time announced in the Schedule of Classes, usually in the same room used for class meetings during the quarter.

 No change in the time or date of a final examination may occur unless the course sponsoring agency has obtained the approval of the Committee on Educational Policy (CEP). Requests must be received by CEP not later than the first week of the quarter in which the course is occurring.

Completion or submission of final examinations or papers for undergraduate courses is not allowed during the regular term’s period of instruction, including the closed week before final examinations.

When finals are administered (not during week 10), they must be completed at the scheduled examination time and may not require more than the scheduled three-hour time block. If a take-home examination is not assigned until the week designated for final examinations, it cannot require more than three hours to complete.

To avoid three final examinations on the same day, students may want to consider the final exam schedule when enrolling in courses.

Instructors may bar students from taking the examination if they arrive late.

If a student misses an examination due to an unavoidable emergency, the instructor may agree to give an Incomplete and schedule a makeup examination provided that the student’s work is passing up to that point.

When a final examination is one of the regular requirements in a course, no one taking the course may be individually exempted from it. Travel plans for vacation are not an emergency, and should not be made without checking the final examination schedule.

Closed Week

No examinations, tests, assignments, papers, final projects or final performances that result in more than 12.5 percent of the final grade (other than individual makeup exams) may be given during the last week of instruction. This does not include the collection of materials produced throughout the quarter, such as final portfolios.

Examination Retention

An instructor may release to individual students the original final examinations (or copies). Otherwise, the instructor will retain final examination materials at least until the end of the next regular term. During that time students will be allowed to review their examinations.

Religious Observance for Tests and Examinations

Given the diversity of religious practice within the campus community, academic and administrative units are encouraged to make reasonable accommodation when the schedule of a required campus event conflicts with an individual’s religious creed.

It is the official policy of the University of California, Santa Cruz, to accommodate, without penalty, requests for alternate test or examination times in cases where the scheduled time for the test or examination violates a student’s religious creed, unless the request cannot be reasonably accommodated.

Requests to accommodate a student's religious creed by scheduling tests or examinations at alternative times should be submitted directly to the instructor in charge of the course as soon as possible after the test or examination is announced.

Students who are unable to reach a satisfactory arrangement with the instructor should consult the head of the unit sponsoring the course.

If the unit head feels that the request cannot be reasonably accommodated, the unit head should consult with the Dean of Graduate Studies or the Dean of Undergraduate Education as appropriate.

Accommodations for Disability

Students with documented disabilities that require examination modifications will be accommodated in compliance with state and federal laws. Reasonable accommodations will be made recommendations from the Disability Resource Center.

A Guide for Confession — Prayers — Catholic Online

Prayer For End Of Course - Final Examinations

The basic requirement for a good confession is to have the intention of returning to God the «prodigal son» and to acknowledge our sins with true sorrow before the priest.

Sin in my Life

Modern society has lost a sense of sin. As a Catholic follower of Christ, I must make an effort to recognize sin in my daily actions, words and omissions.

The Gospels show how important is the forgiveness of our sins. Lives of saints prove that the person who grows in holiness has a stronger sense of sin, sorrow for sins, and a need for the Sacrament of Penance or Confession.

The Differences in Sins

As a result of Original Sin, human nature is weakened. Baptism, by imparting the life of Christ's grace, takes away Original Sin, and turns us back toward God. The consequences of this weakness and the inclination to evil persist, and we often commit personal or actual sin.

Actual sin is sin which people commit. There are two kinds of actual sin, mortal and venial.

Mortal sin is a deadly offense against God, so horrible that it destroys the life of grace in the soul. Three simultaneous conditions must be fulfilled for a mortal sin: 1) the act must be something very serious; 2) the person must have sufficient understanding of what is being done; 3) the person must have sufficient freedom of the will.

Remember

If you need help-especially if you have been away for some time-simply ask the priest and he will help you by «walking» you through the steps to make a good confession.

Before Confession

Be truly sorry for your sins. The essential act of Penance, on the part of the penitent, is contrition, a clear and decisive rejection of the sin committed, together with a resolution not to commit it again, the love one has for God and which is reborn with repentance.

The resolution to avoid committing these sins in the future (amendment) is a sure sign that your sorrow is genuine and authentic. This does not mean that a promise never to fall again into sin is necessary. A resolution to try to avoid the near occasions of sin suffices for true repentance.

God's grace in cooperation with the intention to rectify your life will give you the strength to resist and overcome temptation in the future.

Examination of Conscience

Before going to Confession you should make a review of mortal and venial sins since your last sacramental confession, and should express sorrow for sins, hatred for sins and a firm resolution not to sin again.

A helpful pattern for examination of conscience is to review the Commandments of God and the Precepts of the Church:

  1. Have God and the pursuit of sanctity in Christ been the goal of my life? Have I denied my faith? Have I placed my trust in false teachings or substitutes for God? Did I despair of God's mercy?
  2. Have I avoided the profane use of God's name in my speech? Have I broken a solemn vow or promise?
  3. Have I honored every Sunday by avoiding unnecessary work, celebrating the Mass (also holydays)? Was I inattentive at, or unnecessarily late for Mass, or did I leave early? Have I neglected prayer for a long time?
  4. Have I shown Christ respect to parents, spouse, and family members, legitimate authorities? Have I been attentive to the religious education and formation of my children?
  5. Have I cared for the bodily health and safety of myself and all others? Did I abuse drugs or alcohol? Have I supported in any way abortion, «mercy killing,» or suicide?
  6. Was I impatient, angry, envious, proud, jealous, revengeful, lazy? Have I forgiven others?
  7. Have I been just in my responsibilities to employer and employees? Have I discriminated against others because of race or other reasons?
  8. Have I been chaste in thought and word? Have I used sex only within marriage and while open to procreating life? Have I given myself sexual gratification? Did I deliberately look at impure TV, pictures, reading?
  9. Have I stolen anything from another, from my employer, from government? If so, am I ready to repay it? Did I fulfill my contracts? Did I rashly gamble, depriving my family of necessities?
  10. Have I spoken ill of any other person? Have I always told the truth? Have I kept secrets and confidences?
  11. Have I permitted sexual thoughts about someone to whom I am not married?
  12. Have I desired what belongs to other people? Have I wished ill on another?
  13. Have I been faithful to sacramental living (Holy Communion and Penance)?
  14. Have I helped make my parish community stronger and holier? Have I contributed to the support of the Church?
  15. Have I done penance by abstaining and fasting on obligatory days? Have I fasted before receiving communion?
  16. Have I been mindful of the poor? Do I accept God's will for me?

During Confession

After examining your conscience and telling God of your sorrow, go into the confessional. You may kneel at the screen or sit to talk face-to-face with the priest.

Begin your confession with the sign of the cross, «In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. My last confession was _______ weeks (months, years) ago.»

The priest may read a passage from holy Scripture.

Say the sins that you remember. Start with the one(s) that is most difficult to say. (In order to make a good confession the faithful must confess all mortal sins, according to kind and number.) After confessing all the sins you remember since your last good confession, you may conclude by saying, «I am sorry for these and all the sins of my past life.»

Listen to the words of the priest. He will assign you some penance. Doing the penance will diminish the temporal punishment due to sins already forgiven. When invited, express some prayer of sorrow or Act of Contrition such as:

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you and I detest all my sins, because I dread the loss of heaven and the pains of hell. But most of all because I have offended you, my God, who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve with the help of your grace, to confess my sins, to do penance and to amend my life. Amen.

At the End of Confession

Listen to the words of absolution, the sacramental forgiveness of the Church through the ordained priest.

As you listen to the words of forgiveness you may make the sign of the cross with the priest. If he closes by saying, «Give thanks to the Lord for He is good,» answer, «For His mercy endures forever.»

After Confession

Give thanks to God for forgiving you again. If you recall some serious sin you forgot to tell, rest assured that it has been forgiven with the others, but be sure to confess it in your next Confession.

Do your assigned Penance.

Resolve to return to the Sacrament of Reconciliation often. We Catholics are fortunate to have the Sacrament of Reconciliation. It is the ordinary way for us to have our sins forgiven. This sacrament is a powerful help to get rid of our weaknesses, grow in holiness, and lead a balanced and virtuous life.

A Term’s End

Each St. Olaf course officially ends at the conclusion of the course’s scheduled final exam period. The college’s registrar establishes a schedule and posts it at least a year in advance on the Registrar's Office website. The schedule for each term states in writing a specific date and time for each course’s final exam period.

Student Absence from a Final Examination

An instructor should report any student’s absence from a required final examination or failure to submit final evaluative material by the end of the course’s scheduled final exam period to the Dean of Students Office as soon as the instructor can.

That can constitute grounds for a student failing either the final evaluative item or the entire course.

The instructor has the discretion in how to factor the absence and any missing, final evaluative material into the course grade with the exception of granting an incomplete.

Incompletes

In instances of health problems or important personal emergencies, a student may request, via the Office of the Dean of Students, an incomplete prior to the end of the course, or the Dean of Students Office may arrange for an incomplete if it becomes aware of circumstances warranting it and the student is not able to make the request.

Student and Family Responsibility

Because final examination schedules are publicly posted well in advance, students and parents/guardians are expected to consult the schedules before making any travel or family plans for upcoming terms, and to plan accordingly.

Academic Integrity

All final examinations of any type are subject to the college’s Honor Code; all other forms of final evaluation are subject to the college’s academic integrity procedures.

Studies in Physical Movement (SPM) Courses

The final evaluation for Studies in Physical Movement (SPM) courses typically occurs on the last day of the class.

All Other In-class Final Examinations

For all other courses, any in-class final examination must be administered at the place and time period scheduled for final exams.

Performative Final Evaluative Activity

Certain forms of final individual or small-group evaluation (e.g., performance studies [MUSPF] courses, individual oral examinations as part of the course’s final evaluative activity, etc.) typically are scheduled individually during a time span between the end of classes and the final examination period.

These are scheduled through mutual agreement of the instructor and student(s) involved, taking into account the special function of Reading Day, students’ individual workload as each faces other examinations, and the grades-due deadlines (e.g.

, 24 hours after the end of each course’s scheduled final exam time for seniors in the spring semester).

Other Final Evaluative Activity Done Outside the Scheduled Class Time

Other means of evaluation (e.g.

, final examinations completed electronically, “take-home” examinations, final papers, final projects) substituting for in-class final examinations and not requiring the students’ presence at an organized meeting of the course cannot be required to be due prior to the course’s designated final exam period and must be due no later than the end of the course’s designated final exam period. If the alternative form of evaluation also includes a formal, required event for the full class in the same place at the same time, that event must be scheduled during the course’s scheduled final examination period.

Time Limits for In-class Exams

An instructor must formulate examinations so that students can complete them in the scheduled final examination block of time. Faculty and students need to respect this time limit in the spirit of equality and citizenship that produced this constraint.

Time Limits for Other Final Evaluative Activity

Instructors are encouraged to establish time limits for take-home examinations, online examinations, etc. Instructors should assign final papers or projects and stage any specified activities in developing them so that completing them during the final examination period should consume no more time than an average student would take to prepare for and take an in-class final examination.

Disability Accommodations

Accommodations for students with documented disabilities are determined in consultation with the Disability and Access Specialists in the Academic Support Centers and the instructor.

Multilingual Student Accommodations

Accommodations for students with certified, special English-language needs are determined in consultation with the Academic Support Centers and the instructor.

Rare, Special Circumstances

A student is required to take in-class final examinations on the scheduled days unless the department chairs or program directors, in consultation with the course instructors, give the student written permission to reschedule any final examination to other days or times. Student requests for any alternative final examination dates, times, or accommodations for special circumstances must be made in writing on the Special Circumstances form and submitted to the instructor, who passes it on to the appropriate chair or program director.

Three Final Examinations in a Single Day

Three final examination periods are scheduled per day during the fall and spring semesters’ five-day final exam period, but rarely does an individual student have more than two examinations in a day.

In the rare instance where a student has three in-class examinations scheduled for the same day, s/he may request an alternative for one of them by filling out the Petition to Move an Exam to a Different Date and Time​ form and following the procedure outlined above.

Since some examination formats require that all students be present in the same room at the same time, faculty members are not obligated to make such an alternative arrangement.

Prayer For End Of Course - Final Examinations

Students can access their final exam schedules for current classes via the Web. Go to Rose and select “Final Exam Schedule for a Student.” Identification and password are required. A public display of final exam information by unique number is also available via the Web site listed above. These services are available approximately one month before the end of the semester.

Index of Final Examination times

Wednesday, May 7–Saturday, May 10
Monday, May 12–Tuesday, May 13

The final examination date and time for a class is determined by the class meeting time as listed in the above index. Final examinations for classes that meet at times not listed in the above index are normally scheduled with classes meeting at the indexed time that most closely corresponds to the beginning day and time of the class.

For example, the exam for a class that meets T 3:00–6:00 PM will be at the same time as exams for classes that meet TTH 3:30–5:00 PM. If the beginning time of the class is halfway between two standard class beginning times, the class will be grouped with those meeting at the later time.

For example, the exam for a class that meets MW 2:30–4:00 PM will be at the same time as exams for classes that meet MWF 3:00–4:00 PM.

Uniform examinations and their correspondent makeup exams are scheduled for certain courses that administer examinations at the same time for all students enrolled in the course.

Generally, these examinations are given at times other than the regular examination time.

A list of uniform and makeup examinations will be printed in the final examination schedule distributed prior to the end of the semester.

Questions about the final examination schedule should be directed to the Room Scheduling section of the Office of the Registrar at 475-7600.

Final examination policies

In accordance with Policy Memorandum 3.201, class-related activities, with the exception of office hours, are prohibited on designated no-class days and during the final examination period.

These dates are set aside for students to prepare for and take scheduled final examinations.

During this period, papers and projects are not to be due, review sessions are not to be scheduled, quizzes are not to be given, and there are not to be any other class-related activities, with the exception of office hours.

The final examination days for the spring semester 2008 are Wednesday, May 7, through Saturday, May 10, and Monday, May 12, through Tuesday, May 13. The designated no-class days are Monday, May 5; Tuesday, May 6; and Sunday, May 11.

There is no University policy that provides relief to students who have three examinations scheduled the same day; in that situation, students may seek the assistance of the course instructor(s), department chair, and/or dean of the college.

The following final examination policies are taken from General Information, chapter 4:

Examinations should begin promptly at the scheduled hour and should not continue beyond the three hours allocated in the official schedule.

No final examinations may be given before the examination period begins, and no change in time from that printed in the official schedule is permitted.

An instructor with a compelling reason to change the time of an examination must obtain the approval of the department chair and the dean of the college or school in which the course is taught before announcing an alternative examination procedure to the students.

No substantial examinations may be given during the last class week or during the reading days or no-class days preceding the final examination period. An examination counting for more than 30 percent of the final course grade is considered to be substantial.

A change in the room assignment for a final examination may be made only with the approval of the registrar.

With the approval of the department chair, an instructor may choose not to give a final examination. However, if an examination is given, all students must take it and no exemptions may be allowed except pursuant to a uniform exemption policy announced to the class.

For good cause, an instructor may give a student permission to take an examination with a different class section than the one in which the student is registered.

For good cause, a student may petition his or her academic dean for permission to change the time or place of an examination from that specified in the official schedule. If permission is given by the dean and the instructor, no penalty (such as a reduction in grade) may be assessed.

In a course extending over two semesters, when the subject matter is continuous, the second-semester final examination may include the subject matter of the first semester.

A student may address complaints related to the final examination procedures in a course to the chair of the department or the dean of the college or school in which the course is offered, or to the Office of the Ombudsperson.

Scientifically, The Best Ways To Prepare For Final Exams | Big Ideas Blog

Prayer For End Of Course - Final Examinations

Finals week can be a stressful time for all students–I know it is for me. So, knowing how to properly prepare for finals is the key to avoiding stress and acing every single one of your exams. Of course, all students would love to relax by receiving massages or by the healing power of dogs before finals (I sure would!).

But, we all know this isn’t really possible. There needs to be a uniform way to assess our performance as students and it has to happen at some point (hence, “finals”). So how else can we lower stress and know that we’re on the right track to excel in each course? Well, here are some proven methods that will have you focused and better prepared for final exams.

1. Say NO to cramming: Study in intervals! Studying in 20-50 minute increments and giving yourself 5-10 minutes in between is more beneficial than cramming.  Distributing learning over time typically benefits long-term retention more than a short period.

2. Say YES to cardio: Science says that just 20 minutes of cardio can improve your memory. Whether you’re dancing, jogging or busting a sweat by walking,exercise will increase your energy level and reduce the effects of stress. Very important!

3. Eat superfoods/antioxidants: Everybody knows you should eat breakfast the day of a big test. Research suggests that high-carb, high-fiber, slow-digesting foods oatmeal are best (oatmeal is more fulfilling than cereal). But what you eat a week in advance matters, too.

When 16 college students were tested on attention and thinking speed, then fed a five-day high-fat, low-carb diet heavy on meat, eggs, cheese and cream and tested again, their performance declined.

The students who ate a balanced diet that included fruit and vegetables, however, held steady, says Cameron Holloway, a senior clinical researcher at the University of Oxford.

 When you study, your brain consumes glucose, so  take a five-minute break every hour to let your body produce more fuel for your studying. Eating a healthy snack is very beneficial and can make a significant difference (almonds, fruit, and yogurt are good choices).

5 Reasons to Spend an Extra Hour at the Library Tonight: http://t.co/hJZWuFgD26 pic..com/O9qC9GvP7O

— State U of New York (@SUNY) April 4, 2014

4. Alternate study spots: Shake up your finals routine! Spending all night in the library can be draining.According to the New York Times, simply alternating the room where a person studies improves retention.

In an experiment, psychologists found that college students who studied a list of 40 vocabulary words in two different rooms — one windowless and cluttered, the other modern, with a view on a courtyard — did far better on a test than students who studied the words twice, in the same room.

 Why? Supposedly, the brain makes subtle associations between what it is studying and the background sensations it has at the time. Try alternating your study spots between the library, a study room, and a quiet coffee house.

5. Time management: Cramming causes anxiety, which lowers your ability to retain information. By creating a balanced study plan and schedule, you will be able to study each subject in its entirety and ultimately boost your test performance.

6. Avoid the all-nighter: Almost every college student pulls an all-nighter, but it is a bad idea. a 2008 study by Pamela Thacher, Associate Professor of Psychology at St. Lawrence University, all-nighters impair reasoning and memory for as long as four days.

 As a result, you will receive lower grades. But that’s not all; you would then be forced to wake up earlier than expected–and that’s bad too.

According to Dan Taylor, director of a sleep-and-health-research lab at the University of North Texas, this will interfere with rapid-eye movement (REM), which aids memory. So, get a good night’s sleep and expect to perform better on tests.

(Quick tip: Review the toughest material right before going to bed the night before the test. It makes it easier to recall the material later, adds Taylor!)

7. MINIMIZE distractions: Research shows that while many teens prefer to study while listening to music, texting friends, or watching television, they are less ly to retain information that way. If you must listen to music, stick to instrumental music and consider downloading these study tools to keep you focused!

8. MAXIMIZE practice-testing: You may have thought highlighting, re-reading and summation would be effective ways to study.

Think again!  A 2013 study, Improving Students’ Learning With Effective Learning Techniques, found that these techniques do not consistently boost students’ performance.

Practice testing through the use of flashcards, or taking practice exams was observed to be a highly effective studying technique.
