Slide Materials

"Optional Resources" may be used in answering the exam questions, but they are not, strictly speaking, required

How long should your answers be?

Answer: About the same length as Lincoln's Gettysburg Address

The question of length is a good one. It's also a difficult one to answer as it depends on the question itself, your style of writing, the detail which you give to your examples, and—since this is an open-book exam where you basically could prepare questions in advance and then cut and paste from other sources (with proper credit given to those sources)—a good answer can vary quite a bit in length.

At a minimum you should have a beginning, a middle, and an end (sometimes also known as introduction, body, conclusion).

You should also be sure to answer the question(s) asked, and if there are two, three or more parts to a question, be sure to answer all of them.

Be sure to give examples when you make a statement.

I think it is a good thing to have a look at the OWL's advice before every exam:

Writing Essays for Exams
 OWL logo--Online Writing Lab, Purdue University

To use their recommendations, a well focused, well organized, well supported, well packaged essay answer could be done (for most of the questions) in the equivalent of about a page and a half to two "normal" pages (double-spaced, one-inch margins, #11 or #12 font)—which is about 375-500 words.

How long was the Gettysburg Address?

263 or 268 or 270 words depending on which printed version you check

A standard "letter size" 8-1/2 X 11 sheet of paper has about 255 words, with a size 12 font

So your answer should be about one page long, two if you use the Owl's recommendations

      [As with the Midterm Exam there will be 4 questions randomly generated from a pool of questions made up of the questions from the Final Exam wiki for up to 400 points]

  • Once you begin you exam you will have two and one-half hours to complete it

    • BE SURE TO UPLOAD ALL OF YOUR ANSWERS BEFORE YOUR TIME EXPIRES

    • MOODLE WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO UPLOAD YOUR ANSWERS AFTER TIME HAS ELAPSED

  • The Final will be an open-book essay exam

    • Essay exams usually provide a better learning experience and, in addition, afford practice in writing

    • You may bring and use your texts, dictionary, thesaurus, a writing handbook, class handouts, notes, outlines, drafts, memos, a laptop, and a Ouija board. You may also use references and materials from your other classes and the web, with the caveat, of course, that you properly cite any sources you use.

    • F2F folks may bring and use your laptop

      • but you must upload your exam to your Moodle folder at the end of the exam period

Final Exam

  • The exam will cover materials up to and including the end of Week 15

  • Some of the questions will be cumulative, but most will focus on the materials covered since the midsemester exam.

  • This includes the lecture materials, in-class videos, e-mails, the Forum, the basic introductory materials of the texts, and the text and class materials.

  • There will also be questions available on the final asking you to compare and contrast things in two or more items included in the entire semester

    • these comparison/contrast questions will include countries covered earlier in the semester

  • This is an open-book exam

    • You may bring and use your texts, dictionary, thesaurus, a writing handbook, class handouts, notes, outlines, drafts, and memos

    • You may also use references and materials from your other classes, with the caveat, of course, that you properly cite any sources you use

    • F2F folks may bring and use their laptop

      • but you must upload your exam to your Moodle folder at the end of the exam period

      • REM: Be sure to have your batteries charged

  • The final exam counts up to 400 points (4 X up to 100)

  • You must answer the four (4) questions on the final randomly generated by “James” from the pool of questions put together from the study questions on the Wiki. Each question is worth up to 100 points each. They may include . . .

    • At least one current affairs question

      There could also be one question on a major topic during the semester that for one reason or another doesn’t happen to end up in the Wiki list. You could also have on your exam a theoretical question on a major topic that may also have not made it onto the Wiki list (one that attempts to have you bring together and synthesize various major topics of the semester).

      • You could also have on your exam one theoretical question on a major topic that may also have not made it onto the Wiki list (one that attempts to have you bring together and synthesize various major topics of the semester)

    A caveat: there is always a possibility that there might be some very last-minute fast-breaking current-affairs news announced (that's announced too late to make it onto the Wiki list) that might also be included in the pool from which the four questions are taken. But it would have to be closely related to a topic that you have studied during the semester.

  • There will be a live Final Exam chat on Moodle—for last-minute questions about the exam. Join in; the live chat for the midterm was fun, and useful:
