GROUP ORAL EXAM
PLANNING OUTLINE
** LAST UPDATED: 22 NOVEMBER 2016 **

See the Group Oral Exam Description for the due date for your group's Planning Outline.

Your group's Planning Outline should answer basic questions (who, what, when, where) to "plan" for your project. You can look at the outline below, both for a guideline about what questions to answer, and for a sample of how to do your outline. (You may feel it is appropriate to answer a few different questions, or some additional questions, but be sure to answer questions that are similar to these.)

The answers in your Planning Outline may be short or use complete sentences. To receive full credit, your outline must:

  1. be sent electronically to Erin with a "cc" to all students in the group
  2. be on-time
  3. have no typos
  4. have a good filename, with ASCII characters and without double extensions -- e.g., fılenameoğlu.odt..odt is not acceptable
  5. do centering with the center button, not the tab key
  6. use the outline option (like you learned in TRIN172) in word processing -- not just typing numbers/letters
  7. use the US English dictionary, for easy correcting of spelling errors
  8. use page numbers -- even if it's one page -- not just typed in
  9. use other rules for good, basic Word Processing

While your answers in the Planning Outline may be in complete sentences, note that your answers to the questions in the Oral Exam Outline, which you use during the actual Oral Exam, MUST NOT be in sentences.

    2. Where will you meet to answer the questions?

  4. WHAT?
    1. What tools are you going to use to look for information to answer questions about your film? (the Internet, library, what else?)
    2. What information (or snacks!) will each individual bring to each meeting?

  5. HOW?: How will you deal with students who are not participating as much as they should?

  6. WHAT OTHER IDEAS DOES YOUR GROUP HAVE?
