However, this exam is not a group project and must be taken without collaboration from your classmates or peers. Evidence of a group effort will result in failure of this examination. Open book examinations raise the bar in a professor’s expectations. I am looking for intellectual dialogue that does the following: (1) References the course notes and readings. (2) Illustrates common or contrasting views when necessary. (3) Incorporates your own analysis and perception of the topic. Please ensure that the test is professional in its appearance. All answers must be typed; hand written tests will not be accepted. Please include the questions with the answers. Please also include this instruction page with the test submission. You can use bullet points where necessary to summarize important points. However, do not just provide a duplication of the information from lecture or from other sources. Duplication of information will result in a reduction of points. You must persuade me that you know what you are talking about. The test will be due by 11:59 PM on Wednesday, May 11th. Late submissions will result in a significant reduction of points. Please place your initials and 800 number on the top right hand corner of every page. Do not place your full name on the exam. Electronic copies of the exam are to be submitted under the Tests and Quizzes section on blackboard. Points will be subtracted if these rules are not followed. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me……………..GOOD LUCK.
