[SOLVED] Electoral Systems

Instructor: Dr. Jonasson Format: Take-home, open-book, online (all must do it) Time: (24 hours) – QUESTIONS WILL BE POSTED IN OWL-RESOURCES at the start of the chosen exam date (Wednesday, August 5th at 7PM) (the file will be called final exam questions) DUE DATE: Thursday, August 6th at 7PM – the typed (it must be typed) answer in Word or PDF format only must be submitted to OWL-ASSIGNMENTS – exam Study on-line notes and readings. The notes are most important. 2 (Two) Essay questions (5 essay questions will be given as choices) – each of the 2 answers are worth half of the exam mark The material covered will be all material on the course outline. Value: 40% (each question worth 20% of course grade) Sample question: (this will not be on exam) 1/ Describe the workings of the following electoral systems: runoff and proportional representation (STV). Describe the strengths and weaknesses of each system. In your view, should Canada adopt any of these electoral models? Why or why not? Answer all parts of the question. Write as much as possible without going off topic or repeating yourself. Write in proper paragraph and sentence form. No citations or bibliography are needed (do not include these). A proper structure (i.e. introduction, conclusion) is required but no formal thesis statement is needed. All questions will involve no more than 2 topic areas on the outline directly. Length: I would suggest a target of 3-5 pages double-spaced per question (6-10 in total), but answering the questions properly is more important than strict page lengths. However, please give me no more than 12 pages double-spaced. Please double-space and do not create a title page. Make sure you last name is on your e-file and your full name is on the top of the answers. Again, the answers must be typed. Grading: Expectations will have to be higher on the grading, given the format of the exam, but these will not be unrealistic (see bold notes below). Style will also be graded more carefully since you can more easily correct grammar and spelling. Questions of the instructor during the exam period: I will endeavour to answer emergency e-mail questions only during the period, but if the questions are answered by this document, I will refer you back to it. The questions cannot be about whether the responses should involve certain information or whether if information is correct etc. Use common sense here. I will not be looking over any draft work or final submissions before the due date. Do not ask questions in the last 2 hours before the due date (this gives you an incentive not to wait to the last minute to submit). Late: even one minute past the due date will require you to get AC approval to avoid a zero. I WOULD NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTES TO SUBMIT THIS I WOULD NOT PROCRASTINATE – in general, computer problems will not be accepted for late answers, so get things in early If you have submitted the wrong file to OWL, you can e-mail the updated one before the due date only – if after, the late situation applies. Therefore, carefully upload the correct version. Missed exam: if you have valid reasons for missing the exam in the 24 hour period (sick with a virus comes to mind but there may be other issues), please contact Academic Counselling, and we will have to arrange an online make-up at some point. You will need to go through some formal institutional process to get a make-up. The 24 hours is to help avoid a plethora of make-ups, so please do not get approval for frivolous reasons. I realize these are crazy times but I am trying to give you a decent window for completion of this exam. That you might have other exams in the 24 hour period is possible, so do not use these as an excuse to get a make-up (you do not need to –see below in bold).. NOTE: You really do not need even remotely close to 24 hours to do this well (it is just a long time frame for you to have so you can do the exam properly if you have other exams, normally require SSD accommodations etc.). For most of you, likely only several hours are required (although more than 2 is likely, maybe 2-4 hours is realistic – NOTE: all people are different here in what they might need). Some of you (often very good students) have a tendency to take the maximum time you are allotted in an exam so that you feel you are doing everything you can to get a good grade – for this exam, such thinking may be counterproductive if you overthink the material, rush to hand it in at the last minute etc. Give yourself a certain time frame in the 24 hours (again, I am suggesting something like 2-4 hours for most of you) and complete it and hand it in (and again, why not early?).
