Description

PLAN3110 Planning for Healthy Communities
Final Exam Guide
In this class, we focused on several topics that provide you a broader understanding of population
health and how population health and well-being is impacted by the environment we live, work and
play—which planners are largely responsible in shaping. You were also tasked to critically examine the
scientific research evidence on the impact various built and social environmental factors have on some
disease and health outcomes, and you explored potential roles planning might play (more) to enhance
our health and well-being. The final exam will broadly assess your achievements on the course’s
objectives. Specifically, you should demonstrate the following:
1. Your grasp of the state of knowledge about the influence of built, natural and social environment
(including social determinants) on health and well-being of human population as observed from
the readings, lectures, discussion materials, and media information shared by your peers;
2. Your critical and analytical thinking in your arguments;
3. Your further understanding of opportunities and limitation of planning; and
4. Verbal and written communication skills in clearly, completely, and succinctly conveying your
ideas.
The exam will have a short answer component and a long essay component.
1. Short answer component (5 out of 20 points)
The short answer component will ask one word, one phrase or one sentence answer, such as definitions.
There will be 10 questions (0.5 points each). If you answer it fully, you will get 0.5 points. If you answer
it partially, you will get 0.2 points. If you do not answer it or answer it but it is incorrect, then you will
get 0 point.
2. Essay component (15 out of 20 points)

Characteristics of essay
Mark
The report is impactful, comprehensive, concise and complete in a way it achieves the
objectives. It is impeccably written. There is no redundancy or run-on sentences. It clearly
demonstrates depths in critical arguments appropriate for upper-level undergraduate and
graduate level students (sufficient and comprehensively researched evidence). No error,
professional presentation with effective use of bullet points, tables and figures (where
applicable). It demonstrates thoughtfulness of the limitations (what you wanted to or could
have found out but did not) of the report. It effectively, sufficiently, and correctly uses
different course materials. Paginated and proper referencing.
90% or higher
The report is comprehensive, concise and complete. It demonstrates critical and analytical
thinking with considerable depth. It demonstrates thoughtfulness of the limitations (what
you can or you cannot answer based on the evidence available). There may be one or two
VERY minor errors (e.g., missing comma, quotation marks, apostrophe, tiny spelling
mistakes). Paginated. It misses some arguments that requires more comprehensive views
(pros and cons, advantages and disadvantages, why we know it is good to do but planning
does not always do, etc.).
85-89%
The report is comprehensive and complete. There are few redundant or convoluted
sentences. It demonstrates thoughtfulness of the limitations (what you can or you cannot
answer based on the evidence available). There may be minor errors, incorrect pagination,
little margins, or presentation of tables and figures may have issues. The report
demonstrates considerable depth. It misses some arguments that requires more
comprehensive views (pros and cons, advantages and disadvantages, why we know it is good
