What to Expect on Exam #1
- Exam #1 will have two parts: a written part and a hands-on lab part.
- On the Written Part you will answer about 15 multiple-choice/short-answer questions
that cover material
up to and including loops (Unit 5), but not shift registers (Unit 6). For this part you are allowed
to use a hand-held calculator (no cell phones) but no computer, books,
notes, or handouts.
- On the Lab Part you will use LabVIEW to write two programs that cover most of the topics we've studied through Unit 5 and Lab 5 (Loops). For this part you are allowed to use your desktop computer (no laptops), books, notes, lab
handouts, a hand-held calculator (no cell phones), and old program files that you have saved to the computer. You are not allowed to have a flash drive in your computer during the exam. You are also not allowed to use the Internet except to upload your program files to the course website.
- The programs are not all-or-nothing: for each program I'll be looking for a dozen or more items, and you'll earn credit for all of the items that you get right. Most students will get at least partial credit on both programs.
- One of the programs will require you to use the myDAQ and
the trainer to perform one or more of the following types of operation:
analog input, analog output, digital input, digital output.
