PSYC221 PERSONALY THEORIES FINAL EXAM 5 SHORT ESSAY QUESTIONS
(APA FORMAT) This is the final week of our learning journey and Final Exam week. Your task in completing this exam is to demonstrate mastery of course material covered during the course. Your answers should not be written in casual conversation language, should be long enough and adequately detailed to show what you have learned and should properly source credit the course textbook in answer portions that are paraphrased from it (no exact quoting is needed or permitted for this test–you instructor needs to see meaning you make from material read rather than what published authors have already said)
Essay answers must be more than 3 or 4 brief sentences, but kept within the bounds of a short-answer essay exam. All your writing must be in your own words. Paraphrase (restate what you read) rather than copying material from the course textbook or the Internet. No copying is permitted in this course and doing so will result in zero points on the exam. Answers must be written in narrative, paragraph form. Lists and/or sentence fragments also will not receive points.
