The exam consists of the three essay questions listed below. Each question is worth 50 points. You are welcome and encouraged to submit the exam when completed; you do not have to wait for the deadline to submit it.
To receive the highest marks, your answers should demonstrate that you have analyzed and can apply the core concepts from the course. This means:
Each question should cite at least three sources from the course materials. Answers citing fewer than three sources will not receive full credit. Proper citation means that you should use your own words or paraphrase any concepts in your answer, instead of copying straight from the source. (For example, when you rely on the principles in an article or other resource from the course materials, you should cite to that article or other resource. You should not copy the language word for word unless in it is a quotation.) You are not required to follow APA guidelines in citing sources. You are only expected to provide the title or a clear descriiption of the source.
Answers should be well-reasoned and long enough to show that you can apply the course concepts to your analysis. There is not a word minimum or page count, but answers that are brief and do not refer to course materials, including at least three citations, will not get full credit. Answers must contain proper grammar and use complete sentences.
Exams are open book/note; however, you are not to use any resource other than class materials (i.e., assigned readings, lectures, videos, podcasts, and your notes). Do not use other persons, internet searches, or other books/articles.
Exams must be completed individually. Working with another student or individual on your exam constitutes cheating (see the syllabus for additional discussion about academic dishonesty and misconduct).
Submit the exam in Canvas under the assignments tab in which it is posted. Please submit the exam using your last name and the exam number – for example, “Yelich – Exam #1.” Your answers must be double-spaced with a 12-point font (preferably Times New Roman) and 1-inch margins. Provide your responses on this document, below the specific question being answered. Your exam must be submitted in Word or pdf format.
1) What benefits and detriments does the internet pose to human trafficking and sexual assault victims from both a psychological and systemic perspective? (50 points)
2) Describe the state of victims’ rights law in Wisconsin. Your answer should reflect on the following: (a) the recent constitutional amendment providing rights to victims aka “Marsy’s Law,” (b) the tension between affording rights to victims and the constitutional rights of criminal defendants, and (c) at least one example of how victims are beginning to enforce these rights. (50 points)
3) In this final question, I want you to use what you have learned about human trafficking messaging and the importance of relying on accurate data to consider how human trafficking is discussed in the media, by institutions (both governmental and organizations), and informally by individuals (whether on social media or in casual conversation).
Apply what you have learned to describe the problem and proposed solutions in a manner that is respectful, non-sensational, and victim-centered either (1) to a friend/colleague or (2) if you were designing a media or public awareness campaign for the government or an organization. (only one option is required)
Like in the last exam, this is a thought exercise that does not require a foundation in communications or the law. Rather, you are expected to apply what you have learned to consider a thoughtful and responsible method for communicating about this issue. (50 points)
