the following is timed i will begin it after you have read all of the material, that way uyou are prepared, after you are ready we have 4 hours to turn it in. You must tell me when to open the test so i can send the quesitiuosn
THE FOLLOWING QUIZ CONTAINS FOUR ESSAY QUESTIONS WORTH 25 POINTS EACH. ONCE YOU OPEN THE QUIZ, YOU MAY NOT LEAVE (CLOSE IT) AND RETURN TO IT LATER. I WILL NOT REOPEN THE QUIZ FOR ANYONE. YOU HAVE FOUR HOURS TO TAKE THE QUIZ. LAST SEMESTER, TOO MANY STUDENTS WAITED UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE AND DID NOT FINISH. PLAN TO USE ALL FOUR HOURS, EVEN IF YOU THINK YOU WILL NOT NEED THEM. IF YOU HAVE READ, TAKEN NOTES, AND STUDIED THE PRECEDING UNITS, NONE OF THE QUESTIONS SHOULD SURPRISE YOU.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT STUDENTS WHO GO OVER THE ALLOTTED WORD COUNT FOR ANY QUESTION WILL RECEIVE A ZERO; STUDENTS WHO ARE SIGNIFICANTLY UNDER THE ALLOTTED WORD COUNT TYPICALLY DO NOT CREATE A THOROUGH RESPONSE AND DO POORLY ON THE QUIZ. LATE QUIZZES (TURNED IN BY THURSDAY AT 11:59) WILL BE ACCEPTED, BUT PENALIZED 5 POINTS (HALF A GRADE).
BEFORE YOU BEGIN, YOU WILL WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE TAKEN DETAILED NOTES ON THE PREVIOUS UNITS (DO NOT START THE QUIZ AND THEN GO BACK TO THE UNITS TO ANSWER IT; IT WILL TAKE YOU TOO MUCH TIME AND YOU WILL NOT FINISH). MOST STUDENTS SPEND 3-4 HOURS ON THIS QUIZ. IT TYPICALLY DEPENDS ON HOW WELL YOU HAVE STUDIED AND TAKEN NOTES ON UNITS 2.1-2.4.
SOME ADDITIONAL TIPS:
FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS AND RESPOND TO ALL PARTS OF EACH PROMPT. IF YOU DO NOT RESPOND TO THE PROMPT AT ALL, YOU WILL RECEIVE A ZERO, DESPITE HOW INTERESTING AND/OR WELL WRITTEN YOUR RESPONSE MAY BE. FOCUS IS KEY.
WORDS ARE LIMITED IN EACH RESPONSE, SO CHOOSE THEM CAREFULLY–BE PRECISE AN CONCISE. GOING OVER THE WORD COUNT WILL EARN YOU A ZERO ON THE RESPONSE.
BE SURE TO WORK DIRECTLY WITH THE SOURCES YOU ARE ADDRESSING AND SUPPORT ALL ASSERTIONS. THIS MEANS TEXTUAL SUPPORT AND DISCUSSION/ANALYSIS. ILLUSTRATE CLOSE, CRITICAL READING/VIEWING COMPREHENSION.
RESPONSES THAT DO NOT USE MLA CORRECTLY AND CONSISTENTLY, WHEN REQUIRED, CAN ONLY RECEIVE HALF CREDIT (MLA IS A PREREQUISITE FOR THIS COURSE). MANY OF YOU WILL WANT TO REVIEW MLA (OR HAVE THE OWL SITE OPEN) BEFORE TAKING THIS QUIZ, IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY. ALSO, IT WILL SAVE A LOT OF TIME FOR YOU IF YOU CREATE A WORKS CITED ENTRY FOR EACH OF THE SOURCES YOU ENCOUNTERED IN UNITS 2.1-2.4 BEFORE STARTING THE QUIZ.
PROOFREAD CAREFULLY. NO “I” FOR “I.” WE ALL MAKE TYPOS ON OCCASION, BUT YOU ARE USING STANDARD ENGLISH IN THIS COURSE. CONSISTENT ERRORS IN GRAMMAR, PUNCTUATION, CAPITALIZATION, SYNTAX, AND/OR TENSE WILL RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT POINTS SUBTRACTED FROM YOUR SCORE. THIS IS ADVANCED COMPOSITION.
TYPE YOUR RESPONSES IN WORD OR SOME OTHER WORD PROCESSING PROGRAM, AND THEN PASTE THEM INTO THE QUIZ. MAKE SURE TO ADJUST FORMAT AFTER YOU PASTE IT. THIS ALLOWS FOR THE BEST PROOFREADING AS WELL AS KEEPING TRACK OF WORD COUNT.
COMPLETE THE RESPONSES YOU FEEL MOST CONFIDENT ABOUT FIRST.

VALUABLE INTELLECTUAL TRAITS
Study the following eight traits and reflect on them to determine your strengths as well as areas on which you might need some work:
Intellectual Humility: Having a consciousness of the limits of one’s knowledge, including a sensitivity to circumstances in which one’s native egocentrism is likely to function self-deceptively; sensitivity to bias, prejudice and limitations of one’s viewpoint. Intellectual humility depends on recognizing that one should not claim more than one actually knows. It does not imply spinelessness or submissiveness. It implies the lack of intellectual pretentiousness, boastfulness, or conceit, combined with insight into the logical foundations, or lack of such foundations, of one’s beliefs.
Intellectual Courage: Having a consciousness of the need to face and fairly address ideas, beliefs or viewpoints toward which we have strong negative emotions and to which we have not given a serious hearing. This courage is connected with the recognition that ideas considered dangerous or absurd are sometimes rationally justified (in whole or in part) and that conclusions and beliefs inculcated in us are sometimes false or misleading. To determine for ourselves which is which, we must not passively and uncritically “accept” what we have “learned.” Intellectual courage comes into play here, because inevitably we will come to see some truth in some ideas considered dangerous and absurd, and distortion or falsity in some ideas strongly held in our social group. We need courage to be true to our own thinking in such circumstances. The penalties for non-conformity can be severe.
Intellectual Empathy: Having a consciousness of the need to imaginatively put oneself in the place of others in order to genuinely understand them, which requires the consciousness of our egocentric tendency to identify truth with our immediate perceptions of long-standing thought or belief. This trait correlates with the ability to reconstruct accurately the viewpoints and reasoning of others and to reason from premises, assumptions, and ideas other than our own. This trait also correlates with the willingness to remember occasions when we were wrong in the past despite an intense conviction that we were right, and with the ability to imagine our being similarly deceived in a case-at-hand.
Intellectual Autonomy: Having rational control of one’s beliefs, values, and inferences, The ideal of critical thinking is to learn to think for oneself, to gain command over one’s thought processes. It entails a commitment to analyzing and evaluating beliefs on the basis of reason and evidence, to question when it is rational to question, to believe when it is rational to believe, and to conform when it is rational to conform.
Intellectual Perseverance: Having a consciousness of the need to use intellectual insights and truths in spite of difficulties, obstacles, and frustrations; firm adherence to rational principles despite the irrational opposition of others; a sense of the need to struggle with confusion and unsettled questions over an extended period of time to achieve deeper understanding or insight.
Confidence In Reason: Confidence that, in the long run, one’s own higher interests and those of humankind at large will be best served by giving the freest play to reason, by encouraging people to come to their own conclusions by developing their own rational faculties; faith that, with proper encouragement and cultivation, people can learn to think for themselves, to form rational viewpoints, draw reasonable conclusions, think coherently and logically, persuade each other by reason and become reasonable persons, despite the deep-seated obstacles in the native character of the human mind and in society as we know it.
Intellectual Integrity: Recognition of the need to be true to one’s own thinking; to be consistent in the intellectual standards one applies; to hold one’s self to the same rigorous standards of evidence and proof to which one holds one’s antagonists; to practice what one advocates for others; and to honestly admit discrepancies and inconsistencies in one’s own thought and action.
Fairmindedness: Having a consciousness of the need to treat all viewpoints alike, without reference to one’s own feelings or vested interests, or the feelings or vested interests of one’s friends, community or nation; implies adherence to intellectual standards without reference to one’s own advantage or the advantage of one’s group.

in the following 2016 TED Talk, “Why You Think You’re Right–Even When You Are Wrong,” you will meet Julia Galef and learn about her mindset theory on effective critical reasoning and good judgement. As stated on the TED website:
[Galef] “co-founded the Center for Applied Rationality (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., a nonprofit organization devoted to helping people improve their reasoning and decision-making, particularly with the aim of addressing global problems.

As you watch her talk, pay close attention to the way she illustrates and defines her theory on “Soldier” and “Scout” mindset. It will come in handy throughout the semester.

Watch this short video (3:05): What is Perspectivism? and take notes.
