This is Part 1 of Module 2 assignment. You will be given two random questions from a larger set. Each question should be answerable in roughly 100 words. You will have a limited time to submit your answers to both questions: 40mins.
The questions are based on all the learning materials of Module 2. You should study them carefully before you start the quiz (and see your questions).
Contrary to the syllabus, you are not required to cite and reference your sources in Part 1.
Part 1 will be evaluated and graded by the course staff with scale 0-5 and form 30% of your Module 2 assignment grade.
Do note that the questions are designed with the assumption that you have studied the learning material carefully before starting the quiz. In section 5 Workload of the syllabus you can see the estimated workload. For studying materials, this totals at 12h (lecture + learning materials).
Module 2: Unhappy with peer-grading? Submit your self-evaluation here Assignment
If you think your Part 2 submission merits a higher grade than the aggregate grade received (= average of grades) from your peers you may do the following:
Conduct a self-evaluation of your Part 2 submission using the peer-grading rubric for Module 2 essay (under For Aalto users) by Monday October 7th 9:00.
Place extra care into the written justifications for the grade you think your submission merits.
Do note that course staff will re-evaluate your submission considering both your self-evaluation and the essay submission itself - and can also lower the grade you received from your peers. I expect this to be very rare, however, as that would require the original peer-gradings to be off in your favour and that you still would consider the submission to merit a higher grade.
In the self-evaluation and the justifications argue the merits of your submission. Do NOT write the self-evaluation as a response to comments and justifications of the peers you disagree with. Rather write the self-evaluation as from a clean slate, like you evaluate and grade the peer submissions.
