This terminology helps everyone involved in the diagnosis and treatment of athletic injuries perform effectively for the athlete’s benefit. The  Anatomy & Sports Medicine Terms Test will ensure that you master many terms important in this field.

Honor and Terms Test

You are encouraged to study with classmates. It is OK to use what you are learning from all sources to be successful. However, when you report to take the Terms Test, do your own work.

Do not share questions, answers or any information about the Terms Test that would enable another student to complete it without doing the work on his/her own. Do not ask someone else to share with you questions, answers or other information about the Terms Test that would enable you to complete it without doing the work on your own. I consider either of these behaviors to be a violation of the Honor Code.

Grade Value

Terms Test is worth 15% of final grade. Extra credit opportunities will not be given in this class. However, you may receive 5 bonus points on final grade for successfully completing the Terms Test before 1600 on March 09th.
