These questions are distributed amongst the TCOs. The entire exam is worth 250 points.On the essay questions, your answers should be succinct, should fully address each part of the question, and should demonstrate your knowledge and understanding in a concise but completeanswer. Most essay questions require answers that are a couple of paragraphs (not a couple of sentences) that directly speak to each part of the question. Some students opt to work on the essay questions first, due to their higher point value and length of time needed to adequately address each question, but this is entirely your choice.Remember to always use proper citation when quoting other sources. This means that ANY borrowed material (even a short phrase) should be placed in quotation marks with the source (URL, author/date/page number) immediately following the end of the passage (the end quote). Changing a few words in a passage does NOT constitute putting it in your own words, and propercitation is still required. Borrowed material should NOT dominate a student’s work; it should onlybe used sparingly to support the student’s thoughts, ideas, and examples. Heavy usage of borrowed material (even if properly cited) can jeopardize the points for that question. Uncited material can jeopardize a passing grade on the exam. As a part of our commitment to academic integrity, your work may be submitted to turnitin.com, an online plagiarism-checking service. So please be VERY mindful of proper citation.
