GRADING ON THE MOBIUS CURVE

A proposed final exam for doctoral candidates in Political-Science.

Consider the word “NILE.” Pronounce it aloud several times, alternating between one syllable and two syllables. Continue until you have a ‘feel’ for any and all nuances of pronunciation.

Write two essays, minimum 500 words each, one defending the single syllable pronunciation of Nile and one defending the two syllable approach.

Your success indicator will be your ability, based on subjective assessment by a panel of your peers, to equally defend each pronunciation to the exclusion of the other.

A passing grade on this exam will demonstrate your fitness to hold elective office at any and all levels of government.
