Exam Analysis Protocol

The Office of Learning Resources collaborates with students and faculty members to offer exam analysis as part of learning instruction at the Weingarten Center. Exam analysis allows students, in consultation with learning instructors, to enhance their performance on upcoming assessments by analyzing their performance on recent exams. The following steps outline how students, faculty members, and the Weingarten Center work together to make this service possible.

Step 1: Student Makes an Appoinment and Notifies Course Instructor

Student schedules an appointment with a learning instructor and contacts their course instructor to forward the exam to the Weingarten Center prior to the appointment. The student should provide the course instructor with the first and last name of the learning instructor with whom they will be meeting.

Step 2: Course Instructor Sends Student's Exam

Option 1: Paper Delivery  

Course instructor downloads the Delivery Form for Exam Analysis, attaches it to the front of an envelope, and has the exam delivered to the Weingarten Center prior to the date of the follow-up appointment.

Option 2: Electronic Delivery 

Course instructor uses the name of the learning instructor provided by the student to send an electronic copy of the student's exam through Secure Share.

Step 3: Student Confirms that Weingarten Center Received Exam Before Appointment

Student calls the Weingarten Center and checks that the exam has been delivered prior to the appointment. If the exam has yet to be delivered, the student is responsible for following up with the course instructor.

It is highly recommended that a student does not cancel their appointment if the exam has yet to be delivered. The student can use the scheduled appointment to discuss general exam preparing/taking and other learning/study strategies in preparation for upcoming exams.

Step 4: Learning Instructor and Student Analyze Exam

Student and the learning instructor analyze the exam together in order to identify effective exam taking and/or exam preparation strategies. During this meeting, the student is not permitted to photograph or copy any portion of the exam or to write down exam questions.

Step 5: Weingarten Center Returns Exam or Destroys Copy

Based on the instructions provided by the course instructor on the Delivery Form for Exam Analysis form, the Weingarten Center returns the exam to the course instructor or destroys the copy of the exam.
