SUBJECT: Fall final exam schedule
PLATTSBURGH – The English 235-09C Technical Writing class will hold its final exam on Tuesday, May 15 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public.
Students interested in taking the exam at that time should bring a pen or pencil, class notes and the class textbook. The exam will be “open book,” and students can utilize all notes/handouts received during the semester.
The exam will feature an in-class writing activity. Students will receive the topic when they arrive. They will be expected to “prove” their understanding of technical writing and producing professional documents.
“I want to know that students have benefited from the semester-long activities we’ve focused on,” English 235 Instructor Jeff Meyers said of the activity. “I want them to show me that they recognize the importance of audience awareness and professional quality.”
The final project will be worth four total points.
Students will also submit final portfolios at the beginning of class. Meyers will return them with their final proposal project by end of class.
Refreshments will be served. Meyers has ordered two double-anchovy pizzas for the event.
