Type your responses to the essay questions directly in the attached exam and save the file as: CMST 301_FinalExam.V4.docx.
Submit the completed document to the Project 4 assignment folder.
You must answer 4 of the 8 questions. Should you answer more than 4, only the first 4 will be graded. Each essay is worth 25 points for a total of 100 points for the exam. The exam is worth 20% of your final grade. Be sure you organize your response covering all the aspects of the questions.
Length Requirement: Each essay response is required to be at least 250 words in length. Going over 250 words is fine, but if you are under 200 words you will be penalized (10%). 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).
Content Requirements: Content must be comprehensive, accurate, and persuasive. Your response should be at least 90% original thought. Must use data from a minimum of one scholarly source to support statements and draw a thorough and convincing conclusion from the data.
Bibliographical Requirement: 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. UMGC 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 ONE in-essay citation in EACH essay and a reference list at the END of each essay.
The paper must follow APA guidelines throughout. See Course Content>Course Resources>Sample Paper to Show Appropriate Document Formatting.
Double-spaced (including the reference page) with the first line of each paragraph indented.
