Review for final exam
Final Examination instructions:
For your final exam for History 204, imagine that you have just taught this course. Then, write a suitable final examination representing the course material covered in Weeks 7-14 (that is, since the midterm exam). You must supply both the questions AND the correct answers.
A suitable final examination will:
- Include 20 to 25 questions, with each question assigned a point value;
- Have 100 total points;
- Take about two hours to complete;
- Uniformly cover the course content from weeks 7 through 14;
- Be based on
- Content from Professor Carlin’s lectures (both in-person and online);
- Readings from Judith Bennett’s Medieval Europe: A Short History, and the Gieses’ Life in a Medieval City;
- The assigned primary source documents.
For each question, you must provide an appropriate and correct answer:
In other words, if you design a short-answer exam (like the midterm), you must write the kind of short answers that would result in a grade of “A”; if you design some other kind of final exam, you must provide full, “A”-quality answers.
Your final exam (both questions and answers) should not exceed five single-spaced pages, or about 2500 words. The exam questions and answers must be entirely your own work.
The deadline for submitting your final exam, via Canvas, is THURSDAY, 7 MAY 2020, at 11:59 PM.
