for D. Palmer's Visions of Human Nature
Instructions: The self-assessment exercise for Chapter
9 is a combination of answering and asking questions. Part One contains five questions
in the format you are used to from earlier chapters. Part Two sends you to the chapter report form
you're all familiar with by now, and an input form where you must submit two questions
of your own, to see if you know enough about this chapter to challenge your fellow students. Don't
make your questions too hard, though, since I would like to use the questions I get from you for
future classes. Please give me one multiple-choice question and one true-false question, taken
from different parts of the chapter. Don't click the "SUBMIT" button at the bottom of this page
until you have finished taking the test and are ready to submit your own test questions!
