The answers for each test during this quarter will be posted here on the day tests are returned in lecture. This will typically be 1 week after the day the test is given.

Test Rebuttals

If you feel that your test has been incorrectly graded such that you did not get adequate credit for an answer or because the answer you selected is as correct or more correct than the answer on the test key, you may submit a written rebuttal challenging the grading of a specific question. The rebuttal must be clearly written and submitted to Prof. Kenney within a specific time period. The date the rebuttal is due is noted at the top of the key for each test.

Rebuttals will be read for accuracy of information in the argument and logic of presentation. A statement such as "answer 'b' is correct because that's the way I remember lecture or readings" is not sufficient. You must refer to specific readings and/or indicate the precise line of thinking that results in your answer being as or more correct than that on the key.

If you are rebutting a multiple-choice or true-false question, be sure to state your test version and the question number. Rebuttals of such questions can be made on paper or by e-mail. Paper versions can be turned in to Prof. Kenney or to a TA. If turned in to a TA, verify that the TA can get the rebuttal to Dr. Kenney before the due date/time. If they can't guarantee it, make it your responsibility to turn it in on time. Paper rebuttals can be handed to Dr. Kenney in the lecture hall or be placed under her office door (Guthrie 306) or put into her mailbox on the first floor of Guthrie Hall. Dr. Kenney does NOT have a mailbox in Padelford. E-mail versions should be sent to nkenney@uw.edu.

Rebuttals of short-answer questions require written arguments that are substantiated by information and a logical argument AND must be accompanied by your original test sheet. No rebuttals of short answers will be considered without the original test sheet. Rebuttals and test sheets rebuttals can be handed to Dr. Kenney in the lecture hall or be placed under her office door (Guthrie 306) or put into her mailbox on the first floor of Guthrie Hall. Dr. Kenney does NOT have a mailbox in Padelford.

All rebuttals, whether submitted in person or by e-mail, will be returned to students in class.
