The expectation is that the submitted study notes represents the student’s awareness of material that will be tested.

Intruction :
In support of student learning, and to ensure that standards of academic honesty are followed, students must upload 6 pages of exam study (cheat) notes as a Turnitin assignment.
Students must generate these notes themselves, in their own words (except for the inclusion of technical terms) and without the help of classmates.
The notes must summarize the course material that will be tested in six pages.
Students should a lot a half page per 1 week/topic of course content: 12 weeks/topics of a course = 6 pages. While the exam is open-book (in theory), and may be written in a place of the student’s choosing, students must write and study for the exam on their own.
Unusually high uploaded study note similarities will be grounds
for pursuing an academic honesty inquiry.
Wide discrepancies between the study notes and a student’s final exam responses will be grounds for an academic honesty inquiry.
The expectation is that the submitted study notes represents the student’s awareness of material that will be tested. Six pages, 12 point font, double spaced, divided into Topic/Week Headings (two on each page), All in the student’s own words (maximum 3 technical terms per Topic/Week—the rest paraphrased) with an extra one page, cover page specifying the student number, name and course.
Study note uploads that meet these criteria will earn full marks. As with the commentary assignment, no weight is given to whether the submission is accurate.
The exam grade total will be a combination of the credit for the study note upload, and the student’s awarded exam grade. Students who do not upload the study notes may receive either a 0 or a 20% penalty on the graded exam.
Students who do not write the study notes in their own words, but merely 10 copy and paste class notes will receive 0% on the assignment and may receive either a 0 or a 20% penalty on the graded exam. Study Notes will be due 24 hours before the exam. Students who submit a poorly executed in class commentary (e.g. blank page with only student name and number) but detailed study notes may be the subject of an academic honesty inquiry. Late submissions may be penalized, and no submission will be accepted past the exam start time.a
