Rules & Notes

  • This is an individual assignment. Everything in your repository and on Sakai is for your eyes only.

  • You may not collaborate or communicate anything about this exam to anyone except the instructor and the TA. For example, you may not communicate with other students, or post/solicit help on the internet, email or via any other method of communication.

  • The exam is open-book, open-note, so you may use any materials from class as you take the exam.

  • If you have questions, email the professor or the TA or post on Sakai Conversations for “Instructors in this site” only or attend my office hours.


  • Part 1 - Conceptual: The answers to the multiple choice/short answer questions should be submitted under Test & Quizzes in Sakai.

  • Part 2 - Applied: The PDF document for the data analysis portion must be uploaded to Gradescope.

    • You must submit a PDF to Gradescope that corresponds to the .qmd file on your GitHub repository in order to receive credit for this portion of the exam.

    • You must upload a PDF, not HTML. Any non-PDF submissions will not be graded.

    • Mark the pages associated with each question. If any answer for a question spans multiple pages, mark all associated pages.

    • Make sure to associate the “Workflow & formatting” section with the first page.

    • Failure to mark the pages in Gradescope will result in point deductions. Any pages that are not marked will not be graded.
