EXAM INSTRUCTIONS
1.   Time limit:  1-Week
2.   Type directly in this exam (don’t forget to save your work).
3.   You must answer 4 of the 8 essay questions. Should you answer more than 4, only the first 4 will be graded. Begin each essay on a separate page. Each essay is worth 25 points for a total of 100 points for exam. You may delete any essay topic you are not using.
4. The exam is worth 20% of your final grade. Be sure you organize your response covering all the aspects of the question.
4. Each essay response is required to be at least 500 words in length. Essay responses that are shorter will receive deductions based on how many words under (the farther from the designated length, the higher the deduction). Between 400-499 words, you will lose 5 points, under 400 words, you will lose 10 points. Direct quotes do not count toward the word total. Please keep direct quotes to a minimum. Your response should be at least 90% original thought.   Also, I am expecting to see analysis and the synthesis of ideas in your essays (not just a manipulation of direct quotes with your words spliced in between).
5.   USING PROFESSIONAL OR SCHOLARLY SOURCES
Please do not use unprofessional sources such as Wikipedia, About.com, Answers.com, Dictionary.com, How.com, or anything remotely similar.  Examples of scholarly sources include: our course content (e.g. Read & Watch resources), textbooks, journal articles, trade magazines, and conference proceedings. UMUC has a top-notch, extensive online library. You can find many scholarly sources there. Note: “Personal communications (e.g. Twitter Posts, Blogs, and YouTube Videos)” are not considered professional or scholarly sources.

Include at least TWO in-essay citation in EACH essay and a reference list at the end of each essay.

Note: Please include the proper APA citation of your source (in the body of each essay) and reference(s) (at the end of each essay). UMUC has a very good online APA guide: http://www.umuc.edu/library/libhow/apa_examples.cfm
6.   Format: Open Books and Open Notes.
7.   This exam is **not** a group project. Your answers should be yours alone.
8. Please spell-check your work.
