Based on a review of actual exams, these
are the types of questions we identified.
To get the answer, (a. self-fulfilling
prophecy), the definition needs to be understood so well proper examples can
be recognized and alternatives eliminated.
In order to select the correct answer (d.
Freud’s psychosexual stages), you need to understand what each of these
theories say, how they may relate to Erickson’s views, but you
also need to be able to explain to yourself why the other
answers are wrong.
Here the question asks about several
pieces of information that were initially presented in the text
individually. You would need to know what it means to have a
“strong locus of control,” but you’d also need to know enough
about each of the types of cultures to be able to relate those
to locus of control. Because of this, it is important in this class not just
learn words and concepts on their own, but to pay attention to how
understanding one enhances your understanding of another.
The textbook had a fairly lengthy
section on menopause and each one of the potential answers was
referred to in the section. If they didn’t truly understand
what the authors were trying to say about menopause, they would find it very
difficult if not impossible to answer the questions. While the answer is
C, some women do experience the problems described in the other three answers, and
many other women fear that they will have a negative experience. As a result,
unless they read carefully, it could easily seem like all the
answers were correct.
