1. What kind of options are offered for the final exams?

2.What are the requirements for writing the research paper?

3. What option did Andrew choose as a final exam?


Andrew: Dr. Anderson, could you please clarify the requirements for this course? Some of us are a little bit confused about the final examination.

Dr. Anderson: Oh? Well, you have two options in this course. You can either take a final examination or you can write a research paper instead.

Andrew: Excuse me, Dr. Anderson. That’s the point I need you to clarify. What kind of research paper did you have in mind? An original study? А report? A book review, perhaps?

Dr. Anderson: A report. A summary really, based upon current research in the field.

Andrew: How long should the reports be?

Dr. Anderson: Length is really not important. I should think that it would take at least ten pages in order to develop the topic, however.

Andrew: And should we check the topic with you before we begin writing?

Dr. Anderson: You may, if you wish. But the only requirement is that it relate to current trends in United States foreign policy. Are you considering writing a paper, Andrew?

Andrew: I’m not sure. I think that I’d like to know a little bit more about the examination.

Dr. Anderson: All right. One hundred multiple-choice questions covering both the lectures and the outside readings.

Andrew: Didn’t you say that you would give us one hour for the examination?

Dr. Anderson: Yes, I did.

Andrew: I’m going to do the paper, then.
