Overview of Assignments
There are 4 proctored online exams, each worth 100 points. Each exam contains 10 to 20 essay questions. All questions on the exams must be answered completely in order to receive credit for them. A review checklist for each exam can be found under the Modules, units 3, 5, 7 and 9. The following list summarizes the content covered in each exam:
- Exam 1 covers Chapters 1-4 from the Project Management for Mere Mortals text.
- Exam 2 covers Chapters 5, 9 and 10 from the Project Management for Mere Mortals text; and the Lynda.com Essential Training tutorial.
Exam 3 covers Chapters 6-8 and 11 from the Project Management for Mere Mortals text; and Lynda.com Essential Training tutorial.
- Exam 4 covers Chapters 12-14 from the Project Management for Mere Mortals text; and Lynda.com Essential Training tutorial.
With the exception of the final exam, you have the option to re-take one exam before the week the final exam is to be taken, provided all other coursework is up-to-date and has been accepted. This option may be of particular interest to anyone who has done poorly on an exam. Again, this does not apply to the final exam. Additionally, if this is something you decide to do, arrangements must be made before the final exam is due. (See the course schedule.) Also, you will need to wait at least two days before re-taking an exam. Notify me by email if you want to re-take an exam. Indicate in your email when you would like to re-take it. Once the exam has been re-taken, your grade for that attempt will stand as final for that exam. Requested days for re-taking an exam must not conflict with the Critical Dates.
