Full credit for your responses requires more than one-sentence responses.  You must be analytical and apply the law that you are learning.  Each answer should be at least one paragraph in length; some answers will require more.  One or two sentences per answer are not enough.

You will be assessed on the nature and scope of your research and the analytic depth of your response.

In addition, you must proofread your material, and submit it without grammar, spelling, or other mechanical errors.  Finally, remember to use APA format in this and all assignments.
