Assessment and Requirements
All students will be required to complete a comprehensive final examination that assesses the learning of all course objectives. This exam will consist of four drawings, at least one being a CAD drawing. This exam must be weighted in a manner so that the exam score is worth a minimum of fifteen percent of the final course grade. This exam is to be a common exam administered to all sections of TAGD 110.
The student will be required to bring to class drafting equipment that will be identified in the first session (or mailed to the students prior to the first meeting).
Texts, handouts, and/or workbooks will be determined by the TAE Department.
