Exam Details

Hi everyone – just wanted to give you some details on our upcoming exam.

Date/time. The exam will be open from 7:00 am until 11:00 am on Wednesday, July 15, and you’ll have 2 hours to complete it once you start. On the official Google calendar, the exam is scheduled from 9:05 – 11:00 on Wednesday – but since you have lab at 11:15 that day, I thought I’d extend the time frame a bit to give you a little flexibility (that way you don’t have to rush to get to your 11:15 lab).

Password. The assessment password is Summer2020.

Points/questions. The exam is worth a total of 48 points (I had estimated more like 60 points, but it wound up to be shorter).

Please note that Examplify makes it look like the exam only has 30 questions! The reason for this is because there are several matching questions on the exam – and instead of counting each item as a separate question, Examplify just assigns one question number to each group of items.

Here’s an a set of matching questions similar to those on the actual exam, so you can see what I mean:

Examplify would count this set of items as a single question, instead of four questions. Each of the items is worth one point, so it’s not a big deal in the end. It’s just kind of annoying that the number of questions shows up as 30 – and I wanted to explain why.

Exam breakdown. The exam point breakdown is as follows:

  • Cell injury (10 points)
  • Inflammation (6 points)
  • Wound healing (3 points)
  • Immunology (4 points)
  • Hypersensitivity reactions (2 points)
  • Autoimmune diseases (6 points)
  • Neoplasia 1 (2 points)
  • Neoplasia 2 (6 points)
  • Neoplasia 3 (2 points)
  • Neoplasia 4 (7 points)

That’s all I can think of! Please let me know if you have any questions, either about the material or about the exam itself.
