This final was conducted as a field practical. The class met in the Palikir ethnobotanical garden. The instructor indicated twelve plants. Students then filled in the appropriate information for the twelve plants. One point was awarded per correct answer. Local use was awarded one point for a generic answer (medicine, healing, food, drink, shelter, etcetera), two points for a specific use (four leaves are heated and applied to the skin for fungal infection). Spring 2010 I simplified this process and awarded one point per correct answer for a total possible of 36 points (12 questions) which was then scaled to be out of 10 points.
