Exam 1 Study Guide 1 TE 150 – Exam 1 Study Guide Unit 1: Learning Often Involves Some Basic Mechanisms Exam #1 consists of matching, short answer, and essay questions based on the six lessons covered in Unit 1. This study guide is organized in the following order. First , a sample of the kind/type of matching questions you might see on the exam is provided. Second , the key ideas that you are minimally expected to know and understand are listed by lesson. The emphasis of the exam will be on the application of these key ideas, including recognizing, identifying, and explaining these core concepts given real-life scenarios. You also will want to review your class notes and reading questions. Third , some sample questions are also provided at the end of each lesson as examples of the “type/kind” of questions you might see on the exam. In addition, some sample answers are provided to illustrate the kinds/types of answers that would be appropriate. Although the answers below are “listed” in bulleted form for brevity sake, on the exam all answers are expected to be written using clear and coherent sentences and paragraphs. Short answer and essay questions will be similar in format to the questions below.
