Happiness, 1.04 (R) Information on graded components

This document provides a brief overview of each of the three major categories of graded components of this course: · Watching video lectures: 10 points · Quizzes and (one) final exam: 30 points · 7 Assignments: 60 points Below, you can find out more information about each of the three categories of graded components. Graded component category #1: Watching video lectures Watching the video lectures is obviously a critical aspect of any online course and this course is no different. There are about 80 videos in all, divided across 9 modules. You will automatically get 1 point for this graded component (regardless of whether you watch any videos or not). Plus, you will get 1 point for watching each of the 9 modules, which adds up to 10 points. Note that this is a “self graded” component—meaning that you will give yourself the score (between 1 and 10) you deserve for this component. This self-grading will happen via a “quiz” that you will be asked to complete at the end of the course (once you have completed all 9 modules). So, you don't need to worry about this component for now. Graded component category #2: Assignments There are 7 assignments in the course, and each is called a “happiness exercise.” The 1st happiness exercise, for example is called “Defining and incorporating happiness.” This happiness exercise is to be completed at the end of the 2nd Module (titled, “The 1st sin, habit, and exercise.”) One of the assignments (The 5th happiness exercise: Writing, but not sending, a forgiveness letter) is non-graded. That is, there are no points (or zero points) associated with this exercise. So, from the standpoint of getting points, you don't need to complete this exercise. All the other (six) assignments—shown below—are worth 10 points each: 1. Assignment 1: The 1st happiness exercise—defining and incorporating happiness 2. Assignment 2: The 2nd happiness exercise—expressing gratitude 3. Assignment 3: The 3rd happiness exercise—creative altruism 4. Assignment 4: The 4th happiness exercise—leading a healthy lifestyle 5. Assignment 6: The 6th happiness exercise—three good things (with a twist!) 6. Assignment 7: The 7th happiness exercise—presence practice Note that three of these assignments—assignment 2 (The 2nd happiness exercise—expressing gratitude), assignment 4 (The 4th happiness exercise—leading a healthy lifestyle) and assignment 7 (The 7th happiness exercise—presence practice) are self-graded, meaning that you will need to allocate the grades for these assignments yourself. Self-grading is obviously based on a trust system; no one will know if you completed the exercises or not. The self-grading will be done via a “quiz” that you will need to complete after doing each exercise. The three remaining assignments—assignment 1 (The 1st happiness exercise—defining and incorporating happiness), assignment 3 (The 3rd happiness exercise—creative altruism) and assignment 6 (The 6th happiness exercise—three good things with a twist) are all peer-graded, meaning that other students taking this course will grade the reports you turn in for these assignments. In turn, you will need to grade 5 other students' reports for each assignment. Note that you will only get to know your grade for the peer-graded assignments when you have graded those of 5 other peers. Again, you will be give more information about peer grading at relevant junctures in the course. Graded component category #3: Quizzes and final exam There are two quizzes, each consisting of 20 multiple-choice questions, and one final exam in this course. The two quizzes are worth 5 points each and need to be completed at the end of the 3rd and 5th modules. The final exam consists of two parts: Part I, which is 20 multiple-choice questions (worth 5 points) and Part II which has 6 short-essay questions (worth 15 points). The final exam needs to be completed at the end of the final module: Module 9. More instructions will be provided to you at relevant junctures in the course.
