Welcome to Finals Week!
First, if you haven’t already, please complete a Course Evaluation. Since this is a new course your evaluation is very important. If you enjoyed the course and think I did a good job, please take the time to give the course a high rating and positive feedback. If you are unhappy with the course or with my performance as instructor, please take the time to let me know how I can improve. I promise to read every single comment.
The Final Exam will consist of a series of Essay Questions. I will “release” each question, one by one, in the space below. I will also post an announcement in Bb for each release.
- Question 1 (video1)
- Question 2 (video2)
- Question 3
- Question 4
- Question 5
- Question 6
- Question 7
- Question 8 (video3)
Please answer each question as quickly as possible. The speed of your response matters, i.e., those who submit most quickly will be graded most generously. The quality of your answer is more important than the speed so don’t rush to post a lousy answer, but a good answer submitted earlier will be worth more than a good answer submitted later.
There are a few reasons I like this approach:
- It rewards students who are self-sufficient and ready to hustle.
- It makes life more difficult for students who might try to “borrow” someone else’s work and pass it off as their own.
- It simulates the reality of business and the work place. Companies who are first to market tend to win. Companies who can deliver products faster tend to win. Companies who are quicker to adapt to change tend to win. Employees who work faster tend to win. In other words, speed matters.
