RE: Final Quiz Required Readings and Other Perspective Readings
I have set out below articles that have either been listed in one or more Assignment Appendices as required readings or that are offered as suggested perspective articles. The designated required readings should be considered as preparation for the Final Quiz: The articles that are designated by asterisks are those that have previously been designated as required readings. They are the only required readings. Other than those articles, I am not making any of the other articles required readings. However, I reserve the right to make references to any of those articles, not in article-specific questions, but as general framing of questions.

By submitting these responses, I hereby certify and affirm that I have neither given, nor received, any aid of any type to, or from, any of my classmates or any other students on this Quiz. I further certify and affirm that, if I used any sources, other than the text, Dr. Ames’ Materials, sources that he cited or provided to us, and our in-class discussions, I have given full attribution to those sources and to the authors.
This is a fully open book Quiz. However, see the above Certification, to include the requirement if outside sources are used. The Quiz is worth 40 points of your final grade.
This Quiz is being placed on Canvas on Thursday, 19 November. Your submissions are due to be e-mailed directly to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) by no later than Monday, 30 November at 10:00 a.m. Central Time. Your responses are to be placed on this Quiz and e-mailed directly to me by no later than 10:00 a.m. on 30 November. Do not place your responses on Canvas.
There will be no formal class meetings on 26 November (Thanksgiving Holiday), 3 December, or 10 December. That will give you open time to work on this Quiz and your other writing projects, to include your Certification program Modules, the post-class assessment problem, and your Engagement Project paper.
THIS IS NOT A QUIZ WHERE YOU CAN WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO START. IT IS A QUIZ THAT REQUIRES YOU TO HAVE READ CERTAIN ARTICLES THAT WERE ASSIGNED READINGS. IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY READ THEM, THEN YOU HAVE SOME READING TO DO. I, THEREFORE, STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU READ THIS QUIZ AS SOON AS IT IS POSTED ON CANVAS. THINK ABOUT IT AND THEN START WHEN YOU ARE COMFORTABLE. IT IS A QUIZ TO WHICH YOU WILL NEED TO DEVOTE A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF THOUGHT. IT IS ALSO A QUIZ THAT YOU MIGHT WANT TO WORK THROUGH IN STAGES AS YOU GIVE THE QUESTIONS SOME THOUGHT. IT IS NOT A QUIZ THAT WILL REQUIRE YOU TO SIMPLISTICALLY REMEMBER THINGS. IT IS A QUIZ THAT WILL REQUIRE YOU TO THINK, REFLECT, AND ANALYZE.
READ ALL FOOTNOTES. SOMETIMES, THERE ARE INSTRUCTIONS IN FOOOTNOTES.
Note the personal information and the Certification set out above. Both must be on your submissions.
The Quiz contains ten (10) Short Answer, seven (7) Longer Answer questions, and four (4) Bonus Questions. The Short Answer and Longer Answer questions are each worth 3 points.
A Bonus Question is worth 5-points. Depending on the quality of your answer, the points that you can get from responding to a Bonus Question will be added to any raw score of fifty-one (51) points that you make on the questions in the main portion of the Quiz. You may elect to respond or to not respond to a Bonus Question. If you do not respond, there is no penalty. If you do respond, whatever the credit your response warrants, will be added to your basic Quiz raw score.
If you elect to respond to a Bonus Question, select ONLY one. Do not answer all of the Bonus Questions. Each Bonus Question is worth the same number of points i.e. 5.
Since this is a word document, you should place your answers on it to correspond to the questions on this document. This document, in its entirety with your responses, is what is to be e-mailed to me.
For Each of the Statements, etc. Set Out Below, Tell Which Type(s) of Psychological Biases, Which Aspects of Person-Situation Considerations as Advanced by Trevino, Which Issue-Contingent Considerations as Advanced by Jones, and or Which Mechanisms of Moral Disengagement as Advanced by Robert Bandura and others, Are Exhibited by the Statement
Bonus Question One
Are the concepts of schemas and scripts essential to an understanding of an effective compliance and ethics training program? When you respond, describe what schemas and scripts are and how they are or are not relevant to compliance and ethics training programs.
Bonus Question Two
According to Professor Lars Jacob Tynes Pedersen in his article titled See No Evil: Moral Sensitivity in the Formulation of Business Problems, research done by Professor Sumantra Goshal, as reflected in his article titled Bad Management Theories Are Destroying Good Management Practices, shows that the curricula in business schools, and what is being taught, propogate ideologically inspired amoral theories that free business students from their sense of moral responsibility. Do you agree or disagree? Explain your position.
Bonus Question Three
With respect to the observations of Professor Pedersen addressed in Bonus Question Two above, how do the concepts of scripts and framing relate to those observations?
Bonus Question Four
A manager’s purposeful use of framing language to get his employees to accomplish a certain morally questionable project which involves the purchase of sacred Seminole Indian burial grounds in southern Florida for the development of a new condominium project would diminish the employees’ moral space and confirm MacIntyre’s criticism of managers. Do you agree or disagree? Explain.

 See Thomas M. Jones, Ethical Decision Making by Individuals in Organizations: An Issue Contingent Model, 16 Adad. Mgmt. Rev. 366 (1991). This article was also covered in my Materials which you were required to read.
 Note that for each vignette, there might be more than one bias or mechanism. If that is the case, select the one that you believe is primary. I only need one. There might be more than one vignette that reflects the same bias or mechanism. That is ok. Just put down the one that you think is primary for that particular vignette. In your responses, use the language that we have used in class and what you have learned.
