Assessment and Requirements
All students will be required to complete a comprehensive final examination that assesses the learning of all course objectives 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 172.
The student will be required to bring the drafting equipment used in the previous two drafting courses (TAGD 110 and TAGD 120). Modeling clay is also required.
Texts, handouts, and/or workbooks will be determined by the TAE Department.
