email@example.com / smartsite.ucdavis.edu DES 1 > INTRO TO DESIGN > FALL SESSION 2009 > EXAM 1 (WED 11/4 @ 12:10 PM) WHAT TO BRING
Scantron Form "UCD 2000" (the blue one available in the bookstore).
Good #2 pencils and erasers for the scantron questions.
Black or blue ink pens (not sharpies or felt tip markers) for essays &
(You will write directly on question sheets; no blue book required.) FORMAT & VALUE
Mid-term and final exam total 40% of the course grade. Each will include multiple choice,
fill-in-the-blank, and short essays. Mid-term exam will take approximately 60 minutes,
followed by a class activity at 1:30 pm. WHAT TO STUDY
Study all notes from readings and lectures through 11/2/09. Note: color theory (Lauer
chapter 13) will not be covered on this exam. You may find it useful to identify different
major concepts (see syllabus) from class and readings. Pay attention to films shown
during class. Each lecture included individual creators whose names you should know. SPELLING COUNTS
Names and major terms or concepts need to be spelled correctly. Incorrect spellings on
fill-in-the-blank questions usually cause a question to be marked wrong. Spelling of these
critical terms is important on essays, but partial credit will be possible in an essay format. WHAT TO MEMORIZE
SLIDE LIST: Make flash cards of the slides from the list below. On an index card, post a black & white thumbnail image of the artwork/design. On the back, write the
artist, title, date, and any salient information about the image. As you review, you should
be able to recall this information and also apply it to your discussion of major concepts
from class, including questions of creative process, inspiration and creativity. In this way
you will be better prepared for more complex questions, including essays, that ask you to
rely upon a base of knowledge (a mental museum).
NAMES: Names referred to in class are significant. One exception to this is when the name of a musician or performer is presented that does not relate specifically to other
issues from this class. (This includes the occasional reference to music played in class.)
DATES: No specific dates need be memorized except those on the slide list. However, dates on the slide list need to be recalled with precision using the date listed. 14 SLIDES TO MEMORIZE - EXAM 1
