Realize that this is just a snapshot of how you're doing so far; you may improve (or hinder) your achieved learning objectives depending on how you do on future exams when they are tested. In the end, you need ≥60% passed versus tested, or to have passed it only on the comprehensive exam. For example, if you have 3/7 on a particular learning objective, and get it 2 out of the 3 times it is tested on the comprehensive, then even though you only end up with 5/10 overall (50%, below the 60% cut-off), you still achieved that objective because you got ≥60% of the times it was tested on the comprehensive.


Previous exams since adopting Learning Objectives

Note that prior to the Fall 2019 semester (Spring 2019 and earlier), we used a different textbook: University Physics (14th ed.) by Young and Freedman. The material is very similar, but in the current textbook (Physics for Scientists and Engineers), Static Equilibrium is Chapter 12 instead of Chapter 11, and Gravity is now Chapter 11 instead of Chapter 13.
