If a student must miss an exam, s/he must contact the instructors prior to the exam or within twenty-four (24) hours of the exam. A no-call/no-show for an exam will result in a grade of Zero (0). Students who miss an exam for any unvalidated reason shall received a Zero (0) on the exam. Students may submit an appeal to this policy by presenting rationale to the Director or Coordinator of appropriate nursing program no later than two (2) business days following the exam. The student is responsible for seeking the exception from the Director or Coordinator of appropriate nursing program. Students who miss an exam due to an excused reason will be provided an exception to the policy and the student will be assigned the grade made on the final exam as the grade for the missed exam. If two exams are missed, the student will be given a Zero (0) for the second (2nd) missed exam. An alternative plan may be proposed at the discretion of the Director or Coordinator of appropriate nursing program and/or Chair of the Allied Health Department. The Director or Coordinator of appropriate nursing program will document all exceptions in the student’s file and notify the course leader if an exception is granted.

4. No exams will be given in advance of the schedule exam date and time without approval of the Nursing Program Director or Coordinator.

5. Tests will be administered electronically. Students will be provided with the following:

NOTE: DO NOT wait outside of the exam room if any testing is occurring in the computer labs.

Violation of the testing policy will result in disciplinary action up to and including possible dismissal from the nursing program.

Appropriate adjustments are made for students who meet the criteria of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

12. Evaluation of Examinations:
After each exam, the faculty uses psychometric principles to evaluate the examination. Items missed by 50% or more of the class are reviewed. If an item is found to be flawed, the faculty may give credit for more than one answer or nullify the item. That is, if a student answered the items as originally keyed, the student will retain the credit for the item. If a student’s answer differs from the one originally keyed, the student is credited for the nullified item. In other words, everyone gets credit for the item and no one loses credit.

13. Exam Review with Rationale is conducted after each exam to allow students to view incorrect responses and rationales for the exam item. With the exception of final exam. This session is time limited. Students will be allotted a specific number of minutes, based upon the length of the exam (for example, students will have 8 minutes to review missed items on a 50 item exam). Students are not required to attend Exam Review with Rationales. If a student chooses not to attend the Exam Review with Rationales session, the student is not eligible for an individual test review session with an assigned instructor.

14. Students will return to the same exam room and same computer for Exam Review with Rationales. Exam Review with Rationales must be conducted on the same computer as the exam. The same policies listed for testing apply to the Exam Review with Rationales session.
The following rules also apply:
a. All belonging must remain in the classroom or the student’s vehicle.
b. Students are not allowed to talk amongst themselves during this session.
c. Students who arrive late for Exam Review with Rationales will not be given additional review time.
d. Students will log into the Review of Rationales using the following steps.
1. Enter the Exam Password
2. Enter the Review Password

NOTE: Students only have 3 attempts to enter the correct Review Password. Students are encouraged to require assistance from faculty/proctor after 2 unsuccessful attempts.

15. During the Exam Review with Rationales sessions: Disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. If students become disruptive, faculty will end the Exam Review with Rationales Session for all students. Upon completion of the Exam Review the students will sign out of Exam Soft or Examplify application and quietly leave the testing room.

16. If a student scores less than a 75 on a unit examination, the student is required to make an appointment with an instructor prior to the next examination. At that time, the student and instructor will review the examination and, with the assistance of the instructor, identify strategies to improve performance on subsequent examinations. If a student, who scores less than 75 on a unit examination, fails to review with an instructor, 5 points may be deducted from the next unit examination. Students are required to make an appointment prior to the day before examination.

17. Late assignment submissions will incur a late point penalty. In most courses the late penalty will be a deduction of 5 points if turned in 1 day after the assignment due date. Another 5 points will be deducted if the assignment is turned in 2 days after the assignment due date. If the assignment is turned in 3 days late, a 10 point penalty will be deducted. Any assignments submitted after 3 days will be assigned a Zero (0) for the assignment. Previous arrangements between the student and instructor for late work may allow for a reduced late point penalty, but all late submissions will have a late penalty deducted. Refer to the individual course syllabus for any variations from the late penalty deductions.

NOTE: This does not include pass/fail computer assignments such as Passpoint, HESI case study, SwiftRiver, etc. Late submission of those assignments will result in an automatic zero (0) unless previous arrangements between student and instructor is made.

18. A minimum average of 75%, independent of all other requirements, is necessary to pass the course. Daily activity grade (example: discussion board post, classroom/computer assignments, etc.) will not be included in grade calculations until 75% average on exams if achieved. No grades will be rounded until the final course average; this includes weighted exam average.

19. There will be 3 Unit exams weighted at 20% each. The average of 3 Unit exams will be 60% of your final grade.

20. The average of any written/computer assignments will be 5% of the course grade.

21. A Comprehensive Final Exam given at the end of the semester must be taken and is weighted equivalent to 35% of the final grade.

22. The following method is used to determine each student’s grade in the course:

Average with Daily grades
Exam I 20% Grade
Exam II 20% Grade
Exam III 20% Grade
Assignments 5 % Grade
65% Grade

Final Exam 35% Grade

23. An average of 75% or greater is necessary to pass the course.
