Once you are ready to begin the test, please click on "Start Quiz" below.
You will be given two short articles, which express opposing viewpoints paying college athletes. You will not be able to see these articles until you begin the test. You will have 120 minutes to read the articles and write an essay on the same topic, using the articles as support. You should take a clear stance on the issue (choose a side) but also address the counter argument somewhere in your essay.
Once the 120 minutes are up, you will be forced to submit the essay. Make sure your internet is working properly and you have the time to write. I will NOT accept final exams by email or any other method (no exceptions!), and you will not be allowed to restart it. That way it is fair to everyone.
You will submit your essay by writing in the text box. Do not worry about formatting in MLA, but do make sure to introduce and cite your sources as you write.
**You are not allowed to use any outside sources (no other articles, no Google translate, and no other people).
This assignment asks you to respond to the topic both articles address with an argument of your own in an essay that is 4-6 paragraphs in length.
In your argument, be sure to:
Include a thesis statement identifying your position on the topic. To develop your thesis, provide clear topic sentences/sub-claims/reasons.
Support your argument with evidence of and analysis from the provided texts, using correct MLA format for citations. Follow PIEIE paragraph format.
Be sure to address and respond to a counter-argument in your essay.
