Exam Analysis Protocol

Weingarten offers students the opportunity to confidientially review recently taken exams for the purpose of analyzing their performance to enahnce their preparation for their upcoming assessments. The following is our protocol for WLRC's exam analysis service.

Step 1
Student schedules an appointment with a Learning Instructor (LI) for an in-take assessment. If appropriate, the LI will recommend a follow-up appointment to analyze the exam.

Step 2
Student contacts his/her professor/TA to forward the exam to the Weingarten Learning Resources Center (WLRC) prior to the follow-up appointment.

Step 3
Professor downloads the Delivery Form for Exam Analysis, attaches it to the front of an envelope and has the exam delivered to WLRC prior to the date of the follow-up appointment.

Step 4
Student calls the WLRC 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 professor/TA.

It is highly recommended that a student does not cancel his/her 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 5
Student and the LI analyze the exam together in order to identify effective exam taking and/or exam preparation strategies.

Step 6
The WLRC returns the exam to the Student's professor/TA according to instructions provided on the Delivery Form for Exam Analysis
