2. Type directly in this exam (don’t forget to save your work). Do not delete the ones you do not answer. Do not renumber or change the order of the questions.

3. This final exam consists of 8 essay questions in support of the course objectives. Please answer any four (4) out of the eight (8) questions. Should you answer more than four (4) questions, only the first four (4) responses will be graded. Each essay question response is worth 25 points for a total of 100 points for the Final Exam. The final exam is worth 20% of your final grade. Be sure you organize your response covering all the aspects of the question.

4. Answer four (4) of the eight essay questions with a minimum of 500 words for each essay and no more than 550 words. Essay responses shorter than 500 words will receive deductions based on the number of words below the requirement. The farther from the designated length, the higher the deduction. For every 50 words you are from the required word count, expect a 10% (or letter grade) penalty. Direct quotes and references do not count toward the word count total. Please keep direct quotes to a minimum. Paraphrase. Paraphrasing still requires in text citations but not quotes around it. Your response should be at least 90% original thought. I expect to see analysis and synthesis of ideas in your essays — not just a manipulation of direct quotes with your words spliced in between.

5. Essay questions – Cite references in APA format. The response is based on you, your analysis, what you have learned, and how it impacts your professional and educational life.
