Information for the Freud Quiz and Essay

The first exam will be in two parts:

  1. a short closed-book "objective" (mutiple-choice and short-answer) quiz that will be distributed in a sealed envelope at the end of class Monday, February 2, 1997. You are to take this quiz home, leave it sealed until you have finished reviewing your class notes and materials, then put away all course materials and open and complete the exam. When you have finished, sing the Honor Code Pledge, return the exam to it's envelope, and drop it off in the book outside the Psychology Secretary's door some time before noon on Tuesday, February 2.
  2. A short essay question, linked to the course syllabus as a Web page. This will be available by Friday's class time. You may use all the materials assigned and/or linked to the syllabus in completion of this question, and you may submit your answer as email or on paper by class time Monday. Your answer will be limited to one paragraph (roughly one-half single-spaced printed page, 350 words) and will consist of your own short addendum to Freud's interpretation of one of his dreams.
      In preparing for this quiz/exam, it will probably help to look over the linked page of sample Freud questions. You will also want to consult my glossary of Freud terms and concepts, to have anouther look at the Web resources by Stevenson and by Spencer, to read Freud's own Encyclopedia Britannica Essay, and perhaps to attend one of the discussion/review sessions in Sharpless 322.
    • 7:30--8:30 p.m.Thursday, January 29
    • 3-4 p.m. Friday, January 30

If you cannot attend class Monday, arrange to pick the quiz up befor or after class. If you believe you will be unable to take this quiz next Monday, please contact me or your dean immediately.
