4.6 In-Class Examinations

In-class examinations are scheduled for a particular day during the exam period. They generally are scheduled for three hours, although a faculty member may give students more or less time. Proctors are present in the room during the examination. In-class exams can be open book, closed book, or limited open book. Laptop use on exams—using the appropriate exam-taking software—is mandatory.  Students are permitted the use of a single laptop during each in-class exam.  The use of cell phones, tablets (iPads, iPods, etc.), listening to music via any device, second laptops, or other similar devices is strictly prohibited, absent use of such a device as an approved ADA accommodation.
