What’s the structure of the Final Exam?
The exam questions are based on course objectives and concepts from throughout the course.
There are 30 multiple-choice questions for each exam. The exam is timed and must be completed in 3 hours. Students are given one attempt to complete each exam. Results are auto-graded and sent to the instructor.
Note: The final exam is best viewed via the Google Chrome web browser. Please download the latest version of Google Chrome if you do not have access.
What kinds of questions will I see? Can I see some examples?
The Final Exam will have a mix of the following types of questions:
- Applications: Knowing definitions is important, but you also need to be able to apply those definitions in practice. On your exam, you’ll need to apply definitions from individual courses, and you’ll also see questions combining concepts from different courses. These different kinds of application questions can ask you to:
- Connect a concept to an example of that concept. These questions might ask you to recognize an externality in a transaction, identify a marketing strategy given a description of activities, or spot an example of a management technique in action.
- Evaluate a situation and draw conclusions. These questions ask you to analyze a situation and make an appropriate recommendation. For example, you might be asked what would make communications more effective, what is required for a contract to be enforced, or to identify what would likely happen according to a particular theory.
- Perform calculations and apply techniques: You could be asked to perform operations related to finance or accounting, determine what would happen to an equilibrium point if something in the world changes, or predict changes in exchange rates.
- Critical Thinking Questions: On your Final Exam, you’ll see questions testing your critical thinking skills, which means that you’ll have to draw sound, logical conclusions while applying the techniques you’ve learned. You might be asked to identify an assumption, analyze an argument to determine what would make it stronger or weaker, or spot a flaw in an argument. These questions are often quite difficult, so get started by checking out the examples below.
Note: These are general examples that may not necessarily reflect the content of your specific course, but rather will give you an idea of how the questions on your exam will be structured.
