|Placement Exam Schedule 2012||Specific Placement Exam Information|
As you know from Explore, ENGAGE, Excel, the primary purpose of Placement Exams is to ensure that you are taking courses appropriate for your level of preparation.
Should you take a Placement Exam? If there is a question of placement or if we lack sufficient information in the form of standardized test scores to evaluate advanced preparation, it is recommended that you take the Exam.
Past experience tells us that not all students choose to take Placement Exams. For those who do, some take only one, and others take several.
It is very important that you review the placement exam schedule prior to your arrival on campus.
All placement exams must be complete by 5pm on Tuesday, September 4 in order for results to be available for fall term course selection on Friday, September 7.
Students arriving on campus before Tuesday, September 4 for athletics, international student orientation, FYSEP, NLI, or DOC First-Year Trips should plan to take those Placement Exams that are offered in the on-campus Exam Center between Wednesday, August 22 and Monday, September 3.
"From Dartmouth's Academic Honor Principle (Dartmouth College Student Handbook)"
The faculty, administration, and students of Dartmouth College recognize the Academic Honor Principle as fundamental to the education process. Any instance of academic dishonesty is considered a violation of the Academic Honor Principle. Fundamental to the principle of independent learning are the requirements of honesty and integrity in the performance of academic assignments, both in and out of the classroom. Dartmouth operates on the principle of academic honor, without proctoring of examinations. Any student who submits work which is not his or her own, or commits other acts of academic dishonesty, violates the purposes of the college and is subject to disciplinary actions, up to and including suspension or separation. Any student who becomes aware of a violation of the Academic Honor Principle is bound by honor to take some action."
