Chapter 3 Quiz

Chapter 3 – Quiz 3
Instructions: There are two (2) topic areas listed below that are designed to measure your knowledge level specific to learning outcome (LO 3) shown in your course syllabus. Please provide appropriate responses in essay form for both. In most cases the topic area has several components. Each must be addressed to properly satisfy requirements.
State-wide and in most professional industries, there has been a mandate that college students be more proficient in their writing. While this is not a writing class, all writing assignments will be graded for grammar, syntax and typographical correctness to help address this mandate.
Pay attention to what you are being asked to do (see Grading Rubric below). For example, to describe does not mean to list, but to tell about or illustrate in more than two or three sentences, providing appropriate arguments for your responses using theories discussed in our text. Be sure to address all parts of the topic question as most have multiple parts. A verifiable current event (less than 4 years old) relevant to at least one of the topics you respond to is a fundamental component of your quiz as well. You cannot use information from the text book or any book/article by the author of the text book as a current event. Make sure that your reference has a date of publication. For each chapter quiz and final quiz you are required to find and include at least one reference and reference citation to a current event less than 4 years old (a reference with no date (n.d.) is not acceptable) in answer to at least one question. This requires a reference citation in the text of your answer and a reference at the end of the question to which the reference applies. You must include some information obtained from the reference in your answer. The references must be found on the internet and you must include a URL in your reference so that the reference can be verified.
You should type your responses directly under the appropriate question. Be sure to include your name on your quiz. Only the first two (2) questions with answers will be graded. Include your name in the document filename. Your completed quiz must be uploaded into the appropriate eCollege Dropbox, no later than 11:59pm on the due date. Do well.
- Based on what you have learned in this chapter and using appropriate components, properly construct an argument to: (1) support or refute the view that all undergraduate students should be required to take a course in cyberethics; and (2) apply the seven steps (in Section 3.8) to your argument. Please elaborate (beyond a yes or no answer) and provide your rationale in support of your responses (comprehension)
- Using appropriate components construct an argument for or against the view that privacy protection should be improved in e-commerce transactions. Next evaluate your arguments against the rules for valid, inductive, and fallacious arguments. Does your argument contain any of the common or “informal” fallacies discussed in Section 3.9? If so, elaborate. Please elaborate (beyond a yes or no answer) and provide your rationale in support of your responses (knowledge)
