An Hour Test instead of a Final Examination
Instead of giving final examinations of the usual two-and-one-half-hour or three-and-one-half-hour length, some instructors instead conclude their courses with an hour test that is the last in a succession of hour tests administered during the term.
If a course meets during the reading period, this hour test may be administered during the reading period, since, in such courses, regular class meetings are scheduled to extend through the reading period. A course that meets during reading period may also administer the hour test during final examination period at the time specified in the final examination schedule.
If a course does not meet during the reading period, however, the hour test may not be administered during the reading period; it may be administered only during the last week of classes or during the final examination period at the time specified in the final examination schedule.
