Agents are encouraged to give a take-home quiz at the end of each class (testing can be a valuable learning tool).
Participants are expected to pass (70% correct) a comprehensive take-home or open book final exam. A standard, multiple-choice exam is provided by the Educational Director, but Agents may substitute their own exams. One retest can be done for those who do not make a passing grade on the final exam.
The purpose of the final exam is to make sure participants can find appropriate information in the resources provided (general training manual and Handbook for Wisconsin Gardeners), not to test their recollection of facts or specific knowledge.
