Roadblocks: The Directions section is unclear. Specifically, there is no guidance about the weighting of the exam’s parts. There is no information about the exact time limit.

Tip for estimating time limits: 30 sec. per true/false item; 60 sec. per multiple choice item; 120 sec. per short answer item; 10–15 min. per essay question; 5–10 min. to review the work OR triple the amount of time it takes to complete the exam.) Include in the directions how to record answers if they are not to be written on the exam and whether or not to show work.
