This exam consists of five essay questions. Your answer for each question should be a well
written, developed, and organized essay that fully addresses each component of the exam
questions. Follow the rules of formal writing: write in complete sentences, and do not use
any inappropriate language, textspeak, or emojis.
There is no minimum or maximum length for exam answers. Your answers will be graded
on how accurately and completely they answer the exam questions. A good general rule of
thumb is to write about 1-2 pages for each exam question.
Type your exam in a MS Word document. Use standard formatting (12-point Times New
Roman font, double spaced, 1-inch margins) and be sure to number your answers. When
you have completed your exam, submit it as an uploaded MS Word document .
Important Exam Rules:
• You may consult your notes, textbook, and any other course materials as you
prepare your answers.
• Your answers must be written in your own words—no quoting from or copying full
phrases and sentences from the textbook, course materials, or any other source
unless otherwise noted in the exam question.
o Reminder: SafeAssign will automatically check your submitted file for any
evidence of plagiarism. Answers copied in whole or in part from other
sources will result in an exam grade of zero and will be submitted to the
university as an honor code violation.
You have until 11:59 PM (Central) on the due date to submit your exam. Late submissions
are accepted, but the standard late penalty (25% per day after the deadline) will apply.
