History 151-007, Smith INFORMATION ABOUT THE MIDTERM EXAMS Because these exams assess your comprehension of material covered in the course, please do not undertake any additional research or reading. USE OF THE WEB IS NOT PERMITTED. Instead, focus your efforts on extracting from the materials of this course--lecture notes and powerpoints, recitation readings, and insights generated through discussion--the information pertinent to the questions. SOME BASIC RULES: Exams must be typewritten, double-spaced. Margins should be no more than 1 inch on top, bottom, and sides. Justify your left margin only . Be sure to number your pages. Use a 12-point font. Have a cover sheet that includes your name, PID, the name of your Teaching Assistant, your discussion section number, and a line for the honor pledge. DO NOT include a header with your name on each page; we read and grade your essays “blind.” Be sure that the entire exam is stapled together, and submit it without a plastic cover or folder. Please keep a copy of the exam for yourself. If we somehow lose or misplace our copy, we will hold you responsible for providing a new copy. You are not required to use footnotes. If you quote directly from a reading assignment in the course, note the author and page number in parentheses (Plutarch, p. 20). When quoting an assigned online source, simply put the author’s name in parentheses. You may treat all the information you have gathered from lectures and discussion sections as general knowledge that does not require a footnote, though you may wish to cite a lecture if you’re making a very specific point about something. No bibliography is required. LATE EXAMS WILL ONLY BE ACCEPTED WITH SEVERE PENALTIES . We don’t like being this strict, but in large classes draconian policies are necessary to preserve the sanity of the instructors. The exam is due at the beginning of class. If you hand in your exam after lecture has begun, we’ll have to deduct 2 points from the total grade. If the paper is turned in sometime after class but before we have left campus for the day, you’ll lose 4 points. If we don’t get the paper until the next day (and this would include a paper slipped into a mailbox the night before without the instructor’s knowledge), you’ll lose 10 points—i.e., an entire letter grade. If the exam is more than one day late, you’ll need to speak to professor Smith to see if it can still be submitted and, if so, to determine what penalties may apply. CONSULTATIONS AND PLAGIARISM: Each exam is an exercise that tests your ability to understand, analyze, and synthesize the information covered in this course. Hence, we require--under the terms of the Honor Code--that you neither discuss the specific content of your exam with other members of the class nor show your exam, or any parts of it, to other class members. We require, in short, that you work alone on this project. Before you write the exam, you may share lecture notes, discuss the texts, or otherwise review course material with your classmates, but you must
