SPCH 275 Final Exam

PatriciaBechtoln's insight:


1. You have delivered a number of speeches. Perhaps some of your speeches were delivered to an opposed audience, some to a favorable audience, and some to an audience that was indifferent. Compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages of speaking to each type of audience.

2. You have delivered speeches that were for the purpose of entertaining, informing, persuading, demonstrating, introducing, or for some special occasion. How important is knowing and understanding the purpose of your speech to speech writing and speech delivery? Did you ever experience difficulty finding a subject or central idea to fit your purpose? How did you overcome this or what have you learned from this experience

3. Based on your experiences in this class, and the information discussed in class and in your text, would say that great speakers are born or made?

4. According to your text, the communicative act involves five elements: a speaker wishes to communicate an idea, the speaker encodes the idea in a message, the message is sent through a channel to an audience, the audience receives and decodes the message, the audience responds to the message. Based on the speeches you have written and delivered throughout this course, describe the importance of being aware of each of these five elements? How do each of these elements interact with one another?

5. It is always recommended that you finish speech writing with an ample amount of time left to rehearse. Based on your experience, how important is rehearsal? On average, how much rehearsal do you think you require?

6. According to Plutarch, “learn how to listen and you will prosper—even from those who talk badly”. In what ways have you developed into a better listener as a result of your experiences in this course? How important is being a good listener to public speaking?

7. In addition to delivering speeches you have had the opportunity to watch, evaluate, and give feedback to other speakers. How important are things like eye contact, gestures, movement, posture, facial expression, vocal delivery (volume, articulation, dialect, pronunciation, pitch, rate, pauses, and timing), and personal appearance?

8. Effective speakers use a combination of delivery methods (Impromptu Speeches, Manuscript Speeches, Memorized Speeches, and Extemporaneous Speeches). Which type of delivery method do you prefer and why?

9. You can use basic supporting materials to help you make your ideas clearer when speaking: examples, statistics, and testimony. Which ones have you used throughout this course? Which do you think you should have used more?

10. Speeches are organized into central and main ideas in several different ways. These basic organizational patterns include: Chronological, Spatial, Causal (Cause & Effect), and Topical. Which organizational patterns have you used? Which one(s) do you find most effective? Is there a relationship between your organization pattern and the topic or purpose of your speech?

11. Each person begins an introductory speech class with different levels of confidence and experience. Describe your confidence and experience level at the outset of this course. How have you improved? In what ways do you still seek to improve? What is the most important thing you have learned from this course?

12. There are different kinds of group discussions including panels, symposiums, and oral reports. Based on your experience, how do group discussions differ from individual speeches? What are the advantages and disadvantages of both? Which do you prefer, group or individual speeches?

13. There are some general ways to gather information for your speech. You can develop it from your own knowledge and experience, access it from written sources primarily through a library, gather it through electronic resources, or acquire it through interviews. Which of these methods have you utilized? Which did you find most useful?

14. Two guidelines to effective public speaking are to say something worthwhile (content) and to say it in a confident way (delivery). Based on your experiences writing and delivering speeches in this course, would you say this is accurate or not?

15. Free Speech is a right protected by the 1st Amendment. However, as we have discussed, it is always important that you speak ethically. Now that you have engaged in public speaking, what is your opinion of the importance Free Speech and speaking ethically?

16. What would you say are the major differences between writing and delivering informative speeches and persuasive speeches? Which do you prefer to deliver and why?

17. We have spoken a great deal about the importance of knowing your audience and conducting audience analysis to prepare for every speech occasion. You even conducted research on our class demographics in an effort to assist you in developing audience-centered speech. Discuss the importance of audience analysis and knowing your audience. Have you delivered any speeches that you feel were not audience-centered? What have you learned from this experience in terms of writing audience centered speeches in the future?

18. Interference can occur during the communicative act. These include both internal and external forms. Discuss any examples of communication interference you believe have occurred at any point during your speeches in this course. What did you learn from this breakdown on how to be a more effective speaker?

19. You had the choice of delivering one of several types of special occasion speeches including acceptances, commemorative addresses, or after-dinner speeches. Based on your experience as a speaker and audience member, how are these speeches different in terms of writing and delivery, from the informative and persuasive speeches?

20. Every speech should have an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. Now that you have delivered a number of speeches, how important would you say each of these pieces are to writing and delivering an effective speech

SE 571 Final Exam

PatriciaBechtoln's insight:


1. (TCO A) You are responsible for developing a security evaluation process that can be used to assess various operating systems both during and after development. List the five most desirable qualities your evaluation process should have and explain why they are important. (Be sure to address qualities of the evaluation process, not specific metrics for assessment of operating systems.) (Points : 40)

2. (TCO B) The Open Systems Interconnection model is inherently inefficient. On the source host, each layer must take the work of higher layers, add some result, and pass the work to lower layers. On the destination host, each layer must process these results from lower layers and pass the appropriate information to upper layers. Surely this wrapping and unwrapping process is inefficient. Assess the security advantage of this layered approach. (Points : 40)

3. (TCO C) Why is a firewall usually a good place to terminate a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection from a remote user? Why not terminate the VPN connection at the actual servers being accessed? Under what circumstances would VPN termination at the server be a good idea? (Points : 40)

4. (TCO D) A computer programmer has been arraigned for a computer crime. She is suspected of having accessed system files on a public Web server. The programmer’s attorney argues that his client was only trying to determine if the website was secure and that no harm was done to the Web server or its system files. The programmer’s attorney also argues that it is possible that the log files that show that his client accessed system files were tampered with. The attorney claims that the Web server was made accessible to the public anyway so that there was no violation of the law and that the arraignment against her client should be thrown out. You’re the judge. What is your analysis of these arguments? (Points : 40)

5. (TCO E) After reading about attacks on servers similar to the ones used in one of your company’s departments, the CIO has asked you to come up with a report as to what, if any, steps should be taken with your servers. List and describe the steps you would need to take in order to complete a detailed report. (Points : 40)

6. (TCO F) In the U.S., laws are enforced by police agencies and the courts. What are ethics and who enforces them? (Points : 40)

7. (TCO G) Which of the following statements is true? (Points : 20)

8. (TCO H) Some IT department policies are designed to prevent behaviors by IT staff. While some depend upon the employee voluntarily complying with the policy (for example: do not reveal technical information to outside parties), others are enforced technically (for example, authentication required for system access). What is an example of a policy that technically enforces ethical behavior by IT staff? Provide policy wording for your example. (Points : 40)

After the session is set up, the protocol controls the traffic flow and data integrity across the datalink

5. (TCO 2) Which term correctly matches the following definition, as stated in the course textbook?
Every session requires an address to set up a connection if the protocol is connection oriented or to route packets if it is connectionless. Not all protocols contain addresses. Many of them rely on higher or lower layers for addressing

6. (TCO 2) Which term correctly matches the following definition, as stated in the course textbook?
In data networks that have multiple routes to the destination, the protocol determines the appropriate route based on such conditions as cost, congestion, distance, and type of facility

8. (TCO 3) IEEE 802.3 is otherwise known as which of the following

9. (TCO 3) What are the two primary criteria that characterize DSL

10. (TCO 4) Fiber-optic system design is a balance between capacity requirements and costs, which include the cable, terminal equipment, regenerators and amplifiers, and construction and engineering. Identify the three primary criteria for evaluating a system

11. (TCO 4) Which one of the following terms matches the description below?
System gain in fiber optics is the algebraic difference between transmitter output power and receiver sensitivity. For example, a system with a transmitter output of -5 dBm and a receiver sensitivity of -40 dBm has a system gain of 35 dB. From the system gain, designers compute a loss budget, which is the amount of cable loss that can be tolerated within the available system gain

12. (TCO 5) The following description matches which term below?
The X.500 protocol is too cumbersome for many organizations to use, but some method of maintaining directories is required. Every organization has its internal directory, often printed on paper and usually obsolete before it can be distributed. Online directories are the preferred method because they can be updated daily if necessary. An online directory is easy for people to use, but it needs structure to be used in machine communications. Applications must be able to find someone regardless of location to send an e-mail, instant message, or voice call

7. (TCO 1) Explain the term enterprise network

9. (TCO 3) Briefly describe the guidelines of a feasibility study

10. (TCO 4) Please explain why a company would create an RFP. Specifically, feel free to include any other important elements of an RFP in your answer

11. (TCO 5) What is an operations plan/strategy? Why is it important? Briefly discuss the following three factors that you should consider in developing your plan: organizational strategy, cost, and time.

12. (TCO 6) What does convergence mean in the telecommunications industry? Do you agree with the idea of convergence? Why or why not? Will this convergence result in better products, better options, and better prices for the consumers? (State briefly in two or three paragraphs.)
