Exam Schedule (Fall 2013)
Exam Room Assignments (Fall 2013)
Please read the Memorandum below for important information about exams, including what to do if you have a time conflict with your exams.
Attached is the Fall 2013 Final Examination Schedule. The final exam period is from Friday, December 6 to Thursday, December 19, 2013. This Fall, examinations are very tightly scheduled and students should plan to be available to take exams up to and including the last day of the exam period. You should also consider planning to take as many unscheduled and deferred examinations as possible prior to the last day of the exam period.
Below is some important information about the exam process. Please read this memo, along with the Exam Procedures found on the Law School web site (click on Quick Links, then Exams). If you have any questions, you should contact the Office of Student Affairs, not your professor.
Please remember that it is your responsibility to know and to follow strictly the Examination Procedures. Failure to comply with the Examination Procedures may adversely affect your grade.
Scheduled exams are shown in the attached table (use the link above). Also shown are the dates and times of Free Slot sessions. The examination room schedule will be made available just prior to the exam period. Please arrive for scheduled exams at least 20 minutes prior to the start time.
Two exams that begin within a 30-hour period will be considered a conflict. A student with an exam conflict must take one of those exams at its scheduled time and may elect (unless otherwise specified) to take the other exam during a free slot after its scheduled time. Having a scheduled exam on each of three consecutive calendar days is also a conflict.
All students with an examination conflict who wish to defer an exam must complete and return an Examination Conflict form by Monday, November 11, 2013 to the Office of Student Affairs, Suite 103, Barrack Hall. Examination Conflict Forms are available in Suite 103. After November 12th, you will be notified by e-mail of the decision regarding your conflict.
Take-home exams are shown in the attached schedule. Many take-home exams have an established distribution date and time and an established collection deadline. A number of take-home exams are available on a more flexible basis because they are time stamped to show when you picked them up from Exam Central (see link) and time stamped again to show when you turned them in. Please note that you can pick up or turn in take home exams only when Exam Central is open (See Exam Central Hours below), so you need to bear that factor in mind if you plan to use the full amount of time allowed for the exam.
If the deadline for return of a take-home exam is fixed on a specific calendar day and that day conflicts with a scheduled exam, it may be considered an exam conflict if the take-home exam is administered over a brief time period. Students whose scheduled exams create difficulties in taking their time stamped 48 or 74 hour take home exams should submit an Examination Conflict Form and include an explanation on the back of the form. If you have a question about whether or not a take-home creates a conflict, fill out and turn in an Examination Conflict Form and you will be contacted.
NOTE: Time stamped take home exams will be available for pick up on specific days during the exam period. Please see the attached schedule of Take Home Exams for more information.
Unscheduled free slot exams are shown in the attached schedule. Unscheduled exams may only be taken during a period noted as a free slot on the exam schedule. You need not give advance notice of the date and time you intend to take your unscheduled exam. Further information on how to take an unscheduled or deferred is available on the Law School web site.
The examination room schedule will be available just prior to the start of the examinations. Please check e-mail messages sent to you and check the monitors on each floor of the Law School buildings.
Students may type Scheduled and Unscheduled exams on their notebook computers. Only the SofTest exam security software provided by the Law School may be used by students to take their exams on their notebook computers. An e-mail will be sent soon concerning sign-up and orientation procedures. Also, since we do not have a sufficient number to guarantee their availability, students may not use computers from the LAW-PC loaner program.
During the exam period, the second floor of Klein Hall just past the elevators is renamed “Exam Central” and is used by the staff who administer exams. It is where you go for free slot and take home exams, or if you forget your exam number, or for any question or concern during the exam period.
Exam Central is open on Monday through Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. On Fridays, Exam Central is open from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Exam Central is NOT OPEN on Saturdays and Sundays.
