    I am guessing they are going to change the test... morons, you are supposed to steal 1 test 1 test....

    Or better, just take a cell phone pic of it, then you have a chance of them using that test.

    I think you and I are reading this differently.

    I read it as someone stole the completed tests...not example tests.

    Re: Stolen Finals???

    So, exams that were already taken and ready to be graded? Someone must have thought they bombed. I hope that doesn't hold up grading for that class.

    Then it's no big deal since I'm sure they never give the same test twice

    Re: Stolen Finals???

    I did not see anywhere that they were finished, i must have missed that part.

    Boy that really does throw a kink into the grading process...

    Just think if you were supposed to graduate, and had already accepted a job. And then you find out later you did not graduate, because your final was stolen.

    It didn't specify if they were finished or not, but from reading the article - that's what I draw from it.

    Wow, that just really has to suck. My guess is someone did not do well and wants a chance to redo it.

    Re: Stolen Finals???

    Don't they have to be graded by LAST Saturday for those that graduated??

    On second thought...I guess it never says what level of class it was either.

    Re: Stolen Finals???

    I don't see where you are all getting the idea that they were completed exams. If they were, why would it be a big deal? Surely the grader wrote the grades down as he/she graded them.

    Re: Stolen Finals???

    I would guess they were finished. If you were going to steal a blank one to copy why would you bother stealing 25? On the other hand, if you bombed and wanted to cover it up it would be pretty obvious if you just took yours.

    Ha! you put too much faith in people.

    Grades won't be posted until the 20th, so I don't know when the profs have to have them in.

    Were they graded yet? It was the first day of finals that the theft occured. My guess is they were recently taken and not graded yet. What if the last guy yanked them as he left?
