Exam #1 due Friday, March 4, 2022



Exam: Write a 4-6 page answer addressing either one or both of the following prompts. You can choose what you want to do. You should support your thinking with citations from the textbook or class. You can cite the book as follows: (Rinfret et al., 2018, p 40). You can cite in class discussions as: (in class, date).


This paper is due on D2L by the end of class time on Friday, March 4. You should have a single line at the top of the paper marked as follows: Buthman, Public Policy Exam #1, Sp 22, Your name


  • Your exam should be formatted with one inch margins. Use 12 point, Times New Roman font, double spaced. Important note:  99 pages and below is an automatic C before I begin grading, so it could go lower than that. This is because it does not meet the minimum criteria for the assignment and does not follow the directions. And if you do not format your paper correctly, this is also an automatic C before I begin grading.
  • If you need help in your writing style or advice on how to complete the assignment, check with your TA Cara at or set up a meeting with her.
  • You do NOT need a citation page. The only thing you need to cite is the text or in class discussions.


Academic Honesty: Ethics and integrity are essential to the practice of public health. While most public health initiatives in U.S. history have been carried out ethically in the name of public welfare, there have also been glaring examples in which some communities (racial and ethnic minorities, women, the disabled) have been abused by public health researchers, or where research data has been compromised by careless methods. Within this context, it is vital that students of public health demonstrate integrity and ethical behavior by abiding by the College’s policy on Academic Honesty. You are responsible for reading it and knowing it – it is available here:

Grades represent the instructor’s final estimate of the student’s performance in a course. Hartwick College defines grades as follows: (see: )

  • B:indicates a mastery of the subject matter, an understanding of the fundamentals and their interrelationships, the ability to apply that knowledge and to express it clearly.
  • C: indicates an acceptable knowledge of the course content, an understanding of the fundamental principles and a reasonable ability to apply them.
  • D: indicates minimal knowledge and understanding of the course content, with a limited ability to apply the principles learned.
  • F: indicates that the work was not satisfactorily completed.










#1:  Choose a specific policy, one we have discussed in class or any policy you would like to write about. Using the Multiple Streams Framework, explain as fully as you can how each of the streams helps you to analyze that policy.



#2:  Using that same policy you chose in #1, explain as completely as you can how you can analyze the problem definition and implementation stages of that policy. Explain what level and branch of government is the most effective to consider in relation to this policy and explain why you think that level of government can address the policy area most effectively.
