Maximum Score - 24 Points

Please check if the student acts as indicated. If you have to prompt, either for safety's sake or to get some action, write "P" instead of a check and make a note of what was said on the paper. Any action not anticipated in the checklist should be noted on the paper.

If students are entirely unfamiliar with a particular technique, do not over-prompt. (Say something like "Don't worry, if you can't remember it or have never done it, just stop.")
