    Dear Students in PHYS102

    We have announced the results on your portal. 

    For those students who did not attend the MIDTERM and / or FINAL +

    LABFINAL exams, we put MAKE-UP exams which will be online on Team.

    i) The exams will be on July 1, 2020 at 16:30 on Microsoft


    ii) You are allowed to take either Midterm or Final+Lab Final.

    iii) The Team Code for entering the exam channel/room is:




    Dear students, please join your group at 8:10 am on Friday for the ID check and attendance. The Exams (Final and Lab-Final) will be conducted on WebAssign. The Exam will comprise questions from the theoretical part and one question as lab exam. All students will join their own groups at 8:10 where in the first 20 Minutes we will conduct an ID control randomly, by asking the students to open the camera and show the ID next to your face. All students have to stay in Microsoft Teams during the complete duration of the exam which will be recorded. We will randomly check your presence and ask you to open your camera. The questions of the final exam will be answered in two ways. First you answer the question as normal in WebAssign, and secondly in the last part you will find a button upload your solution here with a button choose file. There, you will upload the picture of your solution to the system. The upload of the solutions will be mandatory for all students and will receive the majority of the points. Therefore, we will download and print your solutions and grade those solution in the same way we would have done in the in-class exam. So, if you don't upload the solution you may only receive for instance a mark 1 out of 10 points. 

    Here is the complete rules and regulations:

    PHYS102 FINAL EXAM + LAB-FINAL EXAM Final Exam Rules:

    1. Every student must present her/his ID (with your current photo) whenever asked during the exam.

    2. WebAssign (via Chrome like browser) and Microsoft Teams (via its application) (your own PHYS102 group Teams) have to be open simultaneously during the whole examination.

    3. You must complete the attendance to be assigned to your Teams group. You will be invigilated by your instructor and/or the relevant assistant during the entire exam. You will follow their commands exactly. (In case of the usage of mobile devices, the camera automatically switches off when working on WebAssign, but the voice channel is available in both directions).

    4. The entire exam will be recorded by the Teams. You should also be ready to share your WebAssign screen whenever it is requested.

    5. The students are responsible for the availability, installation, and ensuring the proper operation of all technical equipment deemed necessary to take the online exam.

    6. The exam will be conducted via WebAssign. The solutions of the problems are going to be given in two ways. Firstly, as in the previous exams, the numerical answers are going to be given in the pre-allocated boxes. Secondly, at the end of each question, the upload of the handwritten solutions will be required. Lack of handwriting solutions will result in a significant reduction in points.

    7. The upload time of 15 minutes is included in the exam duration for each question.

    8. For the solutions, the student needs to provide one A4 paper for each part of the questions, appropriate writing material, and a camera to picture and upload the solutions to the upload part of the problem to the assigned section in WebAssign.

    9. On top of every exam paper, every student has to put her/his Name, Surname, Student number, and Signature, as will be instructed during the exam.

    10. The student has to leave space at specific part of the answer sheets - which will be stated in the questions - and put her/his ID card at the position stated before picturing and uploading the solution.

    Exam procedure:

    1. At 08:09AM (Cyprus Time), every student has to join its own class in Microsoft Teams for the random ID control and leave Microsoft Teams open during the whole exam.

    2. The students will receive all questions via WebAssign in the assigned time intervals.

    3. The solution for each question-part should be written on a single A4 paper sheet, leaving space for the student ID card at the announced position in the question.

    4. The uploaded solutions without properly placed ID card on the assigned (the assignment of the locations will be noted at the end of each question) locations will not be considered for grading.
