Guidelines for Unit 2 Exam:
There are four parts to the Unit 2 Exam. All four parts must be addressed and all four parts must be submitted together in a single document. Guidelines for each part are located in the links below.
The Unit Exams are not timed, so you may use the textbook, assigned documents, or other outside sources. For Parts 1 and 2 of the exam, only the sources provided and the textbook are required. Parts 3 and 4 require at least one outside source from the Handbooks of Texas History or the Portal to Texas History. See the Research Center located on the course menu for links and research guides. Other outside sources are allowed for all four parts of the exam but are not required.
In the case of the textbook and the assigned documents, only direct quotes need to be cited, requiring only the author’s last name in parentheses. Outside sources (books, websites, etc., including sources from the Handbook of Texas History and the Portal to Texas History) may also be used, but in this case, all information must be cited and must be listed in a works cited page (or bibliography) at the end of the essay. For your citations, please use Chicago, MLA, or APA. You will submit your paper through plagiarism checking software, so be sure to cite any and all direct quotes. For help with citations, see the “History / Writing Help” section of the course menu.
