Exam Review

We all tell our students to take a look at their exam answers after the grades are posted.

Many ask, "What exactly am I to look for when I read my old answers?"

Dr. Amy L. Jarmon, Assistant Dean for Academic Success Programs at Texas Tech University School of Law, offers an answer.

"I thought the attached excerpt from an e-mail that I sent to all of my law students might be of help to colleagues," Professor Jarmon wrote to me recently. 

The excerpt is entitled: "Patterns to Look for and Questions to Ask When Evaluating Multiple-Choice and Fact Pattern Essay Exam Answers." 

Take a look at Dean Jarmon's work. I intend to post it for my students, and direct the professors at my school to this web copy of the excerpt.  (djt)
