Evidence Quiz 5, 6, 7, and 8

Evidence Quiz 5, 6, 7, and 8 contain every question in the sets of questions in the first four Evidence Quizzes, plus the two pieces of information below. The order of the sets will vary. In words, read before you click an answer.


The same offers of extra credit (2 points if attempted by the recommended date in the Course Schedule), of talking with the instructor if you miss questions and receiving full credit, and of other extra credits listed in the Course Plan you completed at the beginning of the course.


Writing Assignments and Instructions

Writing assignments include instructions such as maximum length, format, and citations. They may specify exactly what you are to read as a source, including specific pages. Your grade is determined by how carefully you follow those instructions and the Good Habits for Evidence.


If you have any questions, please ask before you write and before you spend time in preparation. Your instructor is glad to help you and to change instructions if they are not clear enough. Your asking questions is not just in your interest, but everyone’s.


An Option of Trying Endnotes as the Way to Cite with Writing Assignments and Why You Might Want to

Caution: Do not use endnotes or other extra formatting of any type with Unit Written Exams. It creates an unreadable mess.


When writing an assignment that you submit to Turnitin within Blackboard, you use the same shortened citations that you use in writing of Unit Written Exams. If it is easier for you, you may use your word processor to do those shortened citations as endnotes.


You may want to try endnotes because it is a way to create a document you can use in two ways.

1.       As the one-page memo that the boss wants or the brief paper the professor wants

2.       As your way to know exactly where you got your evidence even if the boss or professor does not want to see citations.


Why do you want to have an easy-to-follow “trail” of your evidence?

·         Because you never know when the boss or professor will suddenly ask for your evidence on a specific thing and your memory may fail you under pressure.

·         Because you know you will be wrong some time. You just don’t know when.
By having the habit of using endnotes as your “trail” of evidence, you can retrace your brain-steps and figure out where you made you error.


How can you create a brief paper and a paper with all of your endnotes?

1.       Write your paper with endnotes. If your boss or prof says he or she does not want endnotes, then you can use the shortened method we use with citation.

2.       When you finish (or hope you have), copy the file for the boss or prof.

3.       In the file for the boss or prof, you can remove endnotes with a few keystrokes. The way that you can do that has changed with the versions of Microsoft Word, but the current version also lets you do this. If you want to try this method, I will be glad to explain and show you.
