Directions: Taking an essay exam is different from answering multiple-choice questions on a quiz. A quiz question simply asks you to recall a simple fact or two, while an essay asks you to explain the basis for the fact or how the fact has real-world applications. Essay questions require you to demonstrate that you know and understand the topic.
