III-Selective 2 Literature Review: Final Paper, Exit Survey, and Faculty Evaluation

Selective 2 students must write a final paper which is due by March 15, 2019. The student must be the sole author of the paper submitted for III credit, even if the student has collaborated with another student or faculty member. Students are free to revise their papers after submitting them if, for example, there are plans to present the paper for publication under joint authorship at a later date. Papers used to fulfill requirements for other courses will not be accepted. Detailed guidelines for writing your paper and sample papers are on the Selective 2 Paper and

Your sponsor must review and evaluate your final paper, and then submit a faculty evaluation directly to Curriculum by March 15, 2019. Be sure to send your sponsor your paper with enough time for review before the submission deadline. We will request your evaluation directly from your faculty mentor, so you do not need to do anything else in this regard.

Selective 2 students must also complete an exit survey by 3/15/19 in order to complete the III requirement.

In order to complete your III graduation requirement, please complete the following steps by 3/15/19:

  1. Complete your paper using the guidelines on the Selective 2 – Final Paper Guidelines & Samples.
  2. Upload a PDF of your paper through the ‘Submit your Final Paper‘ assignment on the E-17 III Canvas site.
  3. Complete the E-17 Exit Survey on the E-17 III Canvas site.
  4. Your faculty mentor must submit their evaluation of your paper by 3/15/19. There is nothing you need to do for this step – we will contact your mentor directly.
