For full marks, memorize and follow these instructions carefully.

1 Test Dates

2 Equipment for Tests and Exams

Tests and exams include multiple-choice questions on blue “bubble’ sheets.

  1. Bring at least two dark, soft pencils. The blue “bubble sheet” mark-sense forms must be filled out in soft pencil only, e.g. pencil type HB. Only dark, soft pencil works on the mark-sense forms. Do not use pens or hard (light) pencils.
  2. Bring a good eraser to all your tests. Poor erasing will result in a wrong answer. Use a good eraser and erase fully.

You may use a simple calculator on any test, if you need it. No phones; no digital assistants; just a simple calculator. You will never need a calculator; the math will be simple enough to do without one.

3 Enter Three Things on the Mark-Sense Form

Fill in only these three (3) things on the bubble sheet:

  1. Enter your personal Test Version number (three digits) into both the NO. OF QUESTIONS and NO. OF STUDENTS fields on the form. Write it twice. Write the version number in digits above the bubbles in the spaces provided so that your instructor can read it.
  2. Enter your unabbreviated College Full Name with last name first. Write your name in letters above the bubbles in the spaces provided so that your instructor can read it.
  3. Fill in only one answer bubble for each question.

Do not fill in any other fields on the bubble sheet.

The scanner cannot read your handwriting. The scanner only reads the filled-in pencil bubbles. Fill in the bubbles and also write your name and test version number above the bubbles in the spaces provided so that a human (your instructor) can read it.

The above three items are all you need to enter on the mark-sense form. Nothing more. You do not need your student number or your gender.

3.1 Your Personal Test Version Number

Everyone in the room gets a different version of the test. The Test Version number is a three-digit number clearly labelled as Test Version near the top left of the front page of your own personal question sheet.

Test Version Number

Test Version Number

You must copy correctly this three-digit number from your personal question sheet into two fields on the mark-sense form. Copy the three digits into the NO. OF QUESTIONS field and also into the NO. OF STUDENTS field on the bubble sheet. Make two copies of this Test Version number.

Also write the test version number in the spaces provided above the bubbles so that a human (your instructor) can read the number.

3.2 Use Your Full College Name

For full marks, the spelling of your name on the bubble sheet must match the spelling used by the College registrar exactly with no errors. Spell your name exactly the way the College has recorded it. Check ACSIS if you aren’t sure of the spelling.

Do not abbreviate your name or omit any names. Write in all the names with which you are registered at the College. Use as much of your names as can fit on the mark-sense form. If all the names don’t fit, remove all blanks and truncate it as necessary to fit the spaces.

Example: If your first name is ROBERT CARLOS YURI YVES and your last name is TREMBLAY JARIWALA NICKERSON KIYOKAWA you must enter ROBERTCARLOSY as your first name and TREMBLAYJA as your last name.

The bubble sheet requires your last name (family name) to be written on the left, followed on the right by your first name (given name).

Also write your name above the bubbles in the spaces provided

3.3 One Answer per Question

You may only select one answer per question. Pick the best one. Erase completely any mistakes you make on the mark-sense form.

4 What to enter on your personal Question Sheet

Everyone gets a different computer-randomized version of the test. Your Question Sheet is different from every other one.

PRINT your Full Name on your question sheet before you hand it in. On your question sheet, your name must be written with your First Name first (on the left) and your Family Name last, just the way you normally would. (On the mark-sense form, the name is written the other way around, with Last Name on the left.) Do not omit your last name.

For midterm tests, write your three-digit Lab Section Number (not your lecture section number) in the space provided. You will get your midterm test question sheets returned to you, if your instructor can read your name and Lab Section Number on the question sheet. (You need your question sheet to do the follow-on assignment after the midterm test.)

5 What to hand in when the test/exam ends

At the end of the test, you must hand in everything you were given. You must hand in your question sheet, your mark-sense form, and any scrap paper you used. Hand in everything.

6 How you get your Midterm Test marks

For midterm tests, you will receive an email with your right/wrong answers within a day or two of the test. Please add idallen@idallen.ca and alleni@algonquincollege.com to your email white-lists. Check your junk mail in case Algonquin misdirects this email. You will need your own personal question sheet to make sense of the answer email; get this sheet from your instructor and compare it with the email you receive.

Do not lose your midterm question sheets. Assignments and quizzes may refer to it.
