How long should your answers be?

Answer: About three-fourths the length of 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

 


REM: Be Sure to Discuss items . . .

When an essay question asks you to discuss one or more items or features, that first of all does not mean to simply listing things.

It is OK to begin your answer essentially with a list of what you intend to discuss, but listing is only the beginning.

There are many ways to discuss an item or feature. Some time-honored recommended strategies include using/following . . . :

    The Journalist's Questions
 
  • Who
 
(descriptive)
 
 
  • What
 
(descriptive)
 
 
  • When
 
(descriptive)
 
 
  • Where
 
(descriptive)
 
     
 
  • How
 
(analytic)
 
 
  • Why
 
(analytic)
 
 


And you can do this for more than one subtopic

For example, you could have one set of "Journalist's Questions" for women's reality and a separate set for men's reality

And you could have still another for widows, etc., . . .


  • Time Sequence
    T1 ---> T2 ---> T3 ---> T4 ---> . . .

    (In this case T1, etc., can equal scenes in the video, for example)


  • Space Sequence

    S1 ---> S2 ---> S3 ---> S4 ---> . . .

    (In this case S1, etc., could equal the spacial scenes in the video)

    (In other cases -- but not so easy to do with the information provided in this film -- with S1, etc., you could describe situations East to West, for example)


  • N number of items

    "Ten itms define the importance of. . . .

    First, . . . .
    Second, . . . ."
    Third, . . . ."
    Finally, . . . ."

  • Most Important ---> Least Important:

    "The most important partition of . . . between Kypseli men and women is. . . ."

    "Next in importance to the men is . . . while women. . . ."

    "The least important to the men in Kypseli is . . . while women. . . ."

  • Comparison / Contrast

    Note how things are the same and how they are different. In the Kypseli case, a logical comparison / contrast would be with / between "The Divided Reality" of the women's world and the men's world.

     
    Women
     
    Men
    Item # 1
    similar
    different
     
    similar
    different
    Item # 2
    similar
    different
     
    similar
    different
    Item # 3
    similar
    different
     
    similar
    different
    Item # 4

    different
     
    similar
    different
    Item # N
    similar
    different
     
    similar
    different

     

    • Emic (the "insider's" view) / Etic (the "outsider's" view)

    • Ethnography (description) / Ethnology (analysis)

Be sure to 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.

Writing Essays for Exams


How many questions will there be?

Your exam will have four questions. They will be selected from the questions that appear on the annotated Midterm Exam Canvas Discussion Study Page.

Canvas will give you four of those questions at random after you sign on to the exam.

Pay attention to the annotations as the original questions are quite often modified to make them a bit clearer, or a little easier to answer in 15 minutes (about the amount of time you will have per question), or to ask for your personal opinion and / evaluation . . .


Will all of the questions on the annotated Final Exam Canvas Discussion Study Page be included?

No.

Not all of the questions on the annotated Final Exam Canvas Discussion Study Page will be in the pool for the exam.  Duplicate questions, or questions that are essentially duplicate questions, will not be included; that is to say that there will be only one question in the pool on any given central topic.

Also, some questions submitted were better questions for the Midterm Exam.  If in my annotations it says something like, "this would have been better question for the Midterm Exam" that means that it will not be in the question pool for the Final Exam. 


Other Words of Advice?

If I were preparing for the exam (an open-book/open notes exam) I would focus on the the questions on the annotated Final Exam Canvas Discussion Study Page, paying special attention to the annotations.

I would also read over the Weekly Memos

And I would review the text materials (see above) and the materials from the in-class videos and slides.
