current topics economics
This is my econ midterm for the worlds most evil economics prof. I would tell you how bad he is but honestly I dont want to bore you. I would solve the exam but both his midterms are due on the same day at the same time and he wont give me an extension.
I can post the question sets if you would like. here is what he said about the exam.
I would like to provide you with detailed information about the format of the upcoming Midterm Exam I.
Midterm Exam II will become available on Wednesday, March 24 at 17:00 on myCourses and your responses are due on Friday, March 26 at 17:00. That is, you will have 48 hours in a 48-hour window to complete the exam.
It is important to carefully read and follow the submission instructions that will be provided on the question sheet.
Coverage and format:
Midterm Exam II covers all topics covered to date, i.e., topics 1 to 7 as listed in the course outline. As stated in the course outline, the topics 6 – 7 covered since Midterm Exam I are more heavily weighted.
An open book take-home exam is more challenging than a timed in-class closed book exam to account for the differences in available resources and duration. The exam questions will reward solid grasp and higher order comprehension of the course material beyond the mere memorization of the lecture material. For this purpose, the exam questions will be designed in a manner that answers qualifying for any non-failing grade cannot directly be copied down from the lecture notes and/or internet resources.
The exam will contain several multipart questions that are similar in format to those in the problem sets but may draw material from different topics than those tested in the problem sets. Every effort will be made the level of difficulty of the exam to closely correspond to that of the problem sets. In addition, some exam questions may ask you to apply analytical tools developed in one topic to a context developed in a different topic.
Numerical questions or parts of questions are expected to be answered thoroughly without skipping steps. Interpretive questions require short, concrete and exhaustive answers. The inclusion of incorrect and/or irrelevant information that compromises the overall quality of the response to an exam question will be subject to mark deductions. Please note that your TAs have every incentive to strictly enforce this rule as compliance with this rule reduces their workload.
In multi-part questions, each error is penalized only once. That is, if you use an incorrect answer from an earlier part, you are still eligible for full marks. In case you have not obtained an answer from an earlier part of a multi-part question but need it for subsequent parts of the section, you may assume an answer and build your argument in subsequent parts based off that assumption.
