50 points
Directions: Thoroughly answer each of the five (5) questions.
Length requirement: Five complete sentences minimum per answer. Be sure to include:
1) the entire question at the beginning of each of your answers, so that no part of the question is overlooked (or 2 pt. deduction)
2) this list (see below) of references at the end of your test (or 2 pt. deduction):
3) References
Santrock, J. W. (2020). A topical approach to life-span development, 10th ed. Boston, MA: McGraw-Hill
Other sources for Chapters 1 and 2 (Pp slides, e-documents, etc.)
Reminder from information on syllabus:
As you prepare your answers, keep in mind the focus of two course competencies:
The effects of heredity and environment in the developmental process.
The physical (biological), cognitive and socio-emotional developmental processes that occur across the human life span.
Also, keep in mind these four (4) intellectual standards of critical thinking:
clarity – easy to understand and free from confusion or ambiguity
accuracy – free from errors, mistakes, or distortions
precision – definite, specific, exact
relevance – bearing upon or relating to the matter at hand
