(you can see these four readings from the PDF file that I send to you).
Totally there are four readings, all sources must come from these four readings.
You should start your answer to both questions with a paragraph giving a general introduction that connects to the question and links the question to the readings.
No late exams will be accepted. Ensure you finish the exam with enough time that you will not run into any internet or other technical issues.
You must write your word count at the top of both your answers (you will lose 3% for not doing so). If you exceed 650 words for either, you will lose 1% for every 50 words (or less) you go over.
You cannot use any direct quotations. (There will be a 3% penalty for each one.)
During the availability of the exam, you will see an assignment link where you will submit the exam.
You have limited words to work with, so it is important to not waste time trying to write everything you know about a term or author. Read the questions carefully, and ensure you are answering them.
This is an exam meant to be written in 2 hours, so it doesn’t have to be written formally or be polished. (You can use as much time as you want during the availability of the exam, above.)
Although you can enter your text straight into a textbox, you should write your answer in a word processor application/program to prevent any issues with losing your work. Ensure you save your work frequently and turn on automatic back ups. If you lose your work, we will not be able to give you any credit.
Although it is open book, you don’t need to include formal parenthetical citations to the readings (you can include them if you want). However, in case this is not clear, this in no way means you may copy statements or sentences directly from the readings or any other source without quotation marks. Doing so is plagiarism.
