The purpose of this study is to determine whether the hypothesis of the experiment is true, which was to find if the student body thinks that a policy to which the graduating seniors must turn in all graded work two weeks before the final exam is fair. It also offers a chance for the student body to voice opinions or suggestions in an open and anonymous questionnaire format. Fifty students chose to partake in a questionnaire that included questions about the university’s policy. They were divided into two groups: one group had twenty-three students [freshman and sophomores] of Human Subject Pool (HSP) students and additionally a small group of one-eighty class respondents; in the second group there were twenty-seven students that were upper-class students [juniors and seniors] from two three-hundred level classes. However, the results were not proven statistically significant as far as the wanting of a policy change between the groups. Nonetheless, the total results of the study added together did show a trend towards a policy change.
