Types of Tests

At Humber students are tested in many ways, including quizzes, mid-terms and final exams. The instructor's evaluation methods will be indicated on the syllabus or course outline.

Mid-terms and Final Exams

A mid-term test takes place during the middle of the semester, but this is not always the case. The word "mid-term" is another way to describe a major test, so it is common for an instructor to schedule two or more mid-terms plus a final exam as the evaluation process for the entire course.

A final exam takes place at the end of the semester and can either be a cumulative exam where course content from the whole semester will be included or it can be non-cumulative where the exam will only cover material since the last test.

Quizzes and Pop Quizzes

Quizzes are made up of a few short questions that cover subject matter that was newly taught. Quizzes can either be scheduled or they can be a pop quiz which the instructor hands out without warning. When quizzes are part of the evaluation breakdown it means students have an extra opportunity to do well because the midterm, final, and other assignments are of lesser value when calculating the final grade.
