CSUF Classes

Monday, December 16, 2002, 5:45 p.m.-7:45 p.m.
Fall 2002 Instructor: Dr. Dieter Wulfhorst

Student Responsibilities and Test Taking
1. All exams including the Final will be taking place in our regular classroom (Music 236).
2. During examinations the instructor will spread out the students through the entire classroom. Failure to follow my instructions will lead to a delay in handing out the test and will result in less time to complete the examination.
3. Exams will be computer-graded. Each student has to provide his/her own No. 2 pencil, pencil sharpener, eraser, and scantron form (available in the Kennel Bookstore: Scantron form No. 882-ES -long teal).
4. During examinations no student is allowed to enter the classroom after any student has turned in his/her test.
5. Students will raise their hand when they want to turn in their tests in order for the instructor to collect the tests from the students. Do not bring the material to the instructor.
6. Each examination is constructed in a way that an average student can complete them in less than thirty minutes. However, two entire hours (120 minutes) are available for students to complete the test.
7. Dont oversleep on examination days. I am willing to make wake-up calls on examination days. Please leave an email message with your name, phone number, and the time you want to be called. A broken alarm is not a reason for a make-up examination.
8. I will play the listening examples only once in the beginning of the class period. Be sure to be on time.
9. Please follow these guidelines in order to correctly fill out your scantrons.

Academic Integrity Policy
This course will follow the policies and procedures outlined in the CSU Fresno Policies and Regulations (General Catalog, pp. 483-486). Any violation of the Academic Integrity Policy will automatically lead to a failing grade (F) for the entire course. This includes cheating during examinations. All textbook materials, class notes, study notes, study guides, and similar aids must be properly stored away during examinations. Any attempt of not storing those materials completely out of sight will automatically lead to a failing grade for the entire course. Not only the attempt of using these materials during the test but the sheer presence of these materials will lead to a failing grade for the course and disciplinary action.

Recommendation for studying: Copy the following terms and come up with your own definitions of the terms. The glossary in the back of your textbook (Appendix II) will be helpful. The textbook indicates most of these terms by putting them in Italics. The test is based on the material of the lectures and discussions in class in addition to the following pages in your textbook:

pp. 324-474

The textbook describes several terms I have not used or discussed in class. I expect you to read and understand the textbook. Please come to me during my office hours in case you have any questions!!!

The test will be based on class lectures, the textbook chapters outlined below, and listening examples.

There will be a total of 50 questions:
-approx. 13 listening questions (you have to be able to identify the listening examples by composer, title, and historical background; e.g., for what occasion and social setting they were written for: mass, concert hall, opera house).
-approx. 10-15 questions on the social, religious, and political conditions of the time period from 1870 until today, and the visual arts -the rest of the questions will be based on identifying terminology (e.g., expressionism, ostinato).
