HIST 1301 University of Texas at Arlington Untest Information Discussion


Unit 1 Untest Information

Here is your first clue that the Untest is a different form of testing – it comes at the beginning of the Unit and not at the end and I encourage everyone to talk about the course materials through participation avenues (Piazza and video comments) to gain a deeper understanding of the history, which will improve your Untest submission.

Remember that although I encourage you to discuss important elements of the units with each other, the Untest is an individual assignment – everyone must do their own original work. Therefore, do not post the questions/answers you will submit on your own Untest. Doing so is collusion, which is academic dishonesty.

So discuss the history and what you think is important, but post no part of your Untest or craft Untest responses via Piazza or any other means.

Start thinking about the Untest as you work through Unit 1 – no need to cram at the end. Answer the Reflective Questions (in your head or in your notes) as you move through each lesson and case study (this will also help you deepen your understanding of materials for the Untest), engage in Piazza discussion over the unit, pay attention to the video discussions, etc.

As you work through the unit, take notes, including good questions and explanations for Untest answers. That way, when you have completed the unit, all you will have to do is simply choose the best answers for the Untest from what you have already put down in your notes.
