**How Many:** Students must take 3 tests for College Algebra and 2 tests for Plane Trigonometry. There are 3 tests for Precalculus.

**Note:** If your tests each need to be split into two separate parts to ensure that your students will have enough time to complete the tests within a single class period, you must contact **Professor Vanessa Williams** before the class begins.

**When:** A student can take a test as soon as they have completed the required competencies (known as “certifications” in Hawkes). These certifications are not optional and are designed to demonstrate a student is ready to test:

**College Algebra:**

**Test 1:**Hawkes sections 1.1a-b, 1.2a-d, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5a-b, 1.6, 1.7a, 1.8a, 2.1, 2.3, 2.5**Test 2:**Hawkes sections 3.1, 3.2a, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 4.1**Test 3:**Hawkes sections 4.2, 4.4, 4.5a-b, 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 10.1, 10.2, 10.3, 10.4, 10.5

**Plane Trigonometry:**

**Test 1:**Hawkes sections 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, 6.4, 6.5**Test 2:**Hawkes sections 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.1a, 8.5, 8.6

**Precalculus:**

**Test 1:**Hawkes sections 2.1, 2.5, 3.1, 3.2a, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 4.1, 4.2, 4.5a-b**Test 2:**Hawkes sections 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 10.1, 10.2, 10.3, 10.4, 10.5**Test 3:**Hawkes sections 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, 6.4, 6.5, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.1a, 8.5, 8.6

**Where:** Tests are completed by the students on a computer (in your computer lab, library, etc.).

**How:** To take a test, students must log in to the software using their individual access code then the proctoring faculty/staff member must enter the test password for each student for each test (see testing instructions below).

**Proctoring:** During tests, students must be proctored by a responsible faculty/staff member at your school to ensure academic honesty.

**Required Test Scores:** Students must earn a grade of C (70%) or higher on each test to pass the course. An average of 70% is not sufficient, a 70% or above for each test individually is necessary.

**Retesting:** The students can retake the tests as many times as they want but, once they take a test, they can’t retake previous tests. Only their highest score for each test will count for their Truman course grade.

**Deadline for Completing All the Tests: **Students must pass all of the proctored tests by the last day of the course at your school.

**Completing the Course: **Once a student has passed all of the tests and has finished retesting (if applicable), they have completed the course. Teachers will notify the CBM Coordinator upon completion.

**Truman Course Grade:** Their grade for the students’ Truman State University class will be completely based on the average of their three test scores; a 90% and above is an A, an 80% and above is a B, and a 70% and above is a C. Grades are NOT rounded.

**Questions:** If you or your students have any questions about the software, please have them contact Professor Vanessa Williams, CBM Coordinator, at **vwilliams@truman.edu** or 660-785-4090.

**Students will need to do the following:**

- Log in to their Hawkes account at learn.hawkeslearning.com.
- Click on View Course.
- Click on the WebTests tab.
- Choose the proper test from the menu.

**Teachers/Proctors will need to do the following:**

- After the students have completed steps 1-4 above, teachers/proctors will need to enter the password they have created for each student before the students can begin each test.
- Note: Don’t tell students the password or let them see it when you type it in or they could log in and take the test without being proctored.

- Proctor/watch the students while they take the test to make sure they follow proper testing procedures.
- Teachers should remember to change the password between each test administration.

When the students have completed each test, you will need to reset the password to something else for security reasons.

**To Reset the Test Password:**

- Go to http://www.hawkeslearning.com/trumanprcc.
- Choose
**your name**from the Login Name menu. - Enter your password (
**you will receive this from Professor Vanessa Williams**). - Click the ASSIGNMENTS tab at the top of the screen.
- Click WEBTESTS on the left side of the screen.
- Click the name of the test that you are working on.
- There is a box for a password; you should see the current password in the box. Change this to something else.
- Click SAVE CHANGES at the bottom of the screen.

**After Each Student Completes the Last Test For the Final Time:**

Email the name of the student and a note that they completed all the tests to Professor Vanessa Williams (**vwilliams@truman.edu**).

Professor Williams will enter the students’ Truman course grades.
