This is an open book, non-proctored, and non-timed examination. Material covered in this examination comes from your reading assignments for the first four weeks of this class. You must make connections to and properly cite the textbook in each of your answers. Answers must be paraphrased (restated in your own words with no quoting permitted), properly APA format source credited – including within-answer citations and a list of references included at the end of each answer – and at least 600 words each, not counting source citations and references. Answers should be succinct, thorough, articulated in well-organized paragraphs (lists, sentence fragments and bulleted items are not permitted), and more substantive than just definitions of terms, procedures, or issues. To complete this exam, save a copy of the attached file on your hard drive, construct your answers below each question on a separate page per question, attach a cover page to the front and a reference list to the end (references must also be placed at the end of each question for which they were used) and upload it under the Midterm Exam assignment tab. NOTE: Answers copy/pasted into a student comments box attached to the assignment tab cannot be graded; a Word document or Rich-Text File formatted as instructed above must be uploaded. On submission your work will auto-run through Turnitin.com’s plagiarism checker software. The deadline for submitting this exam is Sunday at 11:55 pm Eastern Time, the end of WEEK 4 of the course.
