Objective Exam Details

The objective final exam will count for 20% of your child's final grade. The exam can be attempted on July 11. Your child must attempt the exam prior to 11:59 p.m., that day. Only one attempt is allowed so once your child accesses the exam, he/she must have ample time to complete the exam. Details regarding the Fundamentals of Web Design final exam is provided below. I will conduct a final exam synchronous session on July 8, at 4:00 p.m. If your child cannot attend the live session, he/she can access the recording of the session from the course home page.

  • Students will have 90 minutes to attempt a 60 question exam. The questions will include multiple choice and true/false questions regarding computer history, the World Wide Web, e-Commerce, basic web design, creating web pages using hypertext mark-up language, creating and editing images using Expression Design, copyright, creating and editing web pages using Expression Web, website categories, and professionalism.
