Fri. 6/17/16 -- Good job overall on a challenging cumulative Final Exam, folks: the average was 152.7/200 (76.4%). Find your score and your final overall course grade and percentage (after the curves were applied) here. Just like last quarter, in order to ensure statistical equivalence between students who had different lab instructors, two different curves were utilized. For the day labs, the highest-scoring student earned 966.9 points, so if you were in a day lab, your overall course grade percentage was calculated by dividing your total points by 966.9. For the evening labs, the highest-scoring student earned 962.1 points, so if you were in an evening lab, your overall course grade percentage was calculated by dividing your total points by 962.1.
Remember, your graded Final Exam will not be returned to you, but you will be welcome to come to my office to view and/or discuss when I return to campus in the fall.
Again, thank you for all of your hard work, enjoy your break from classes, and I wish you the best as you continue pursuing your academic and career goals!

As you know, the A&P sequence is tough, and it requires a lot of outside-of-class study time and effort in order for you to give yourself the best chance to excel. A while back, I asked some of my best A&P students to tell me what they did to help them score well on the lecture exams. Here's what they said.
Here's an article that references a research study about a simple writing exercise to help reduce test anxiety.
