Orientation test

<p>I am freaking out right now because of the mandatory test that UCR is making students of CHASS take! Has anyone taken the Happiness Quiz? I am not asking for answers at all! But I am just wondering if the test requires you to read the whole book "The Happiness Hypothesis by Jonathan Haidt and Making the Most of College by Richard J. Light". I started reading it but I do not think that I can finish it by Orientation and take the quiz. Also, if I fail the test will it affect my grades at all?</p>

<p>Lol, don’t worry about the reading assignment/quiz. They try to scare you and make you think that you’ll get a grade and that it will affect your transcripts. They even make a fake ilearn page for it. They’re really just trying to show you what college will be like with a mock lecture/college reading. </p>

<p>So you can do it if you want; it won’t help you or hurt you. The professor will ask questions about the reading in the mock lecture. Then after scaring the crap out of you guys with his questions, he’ll go on to say that barely anyone did the quiz. Trust me, you don’t need to worry about it.</p>

<p>Thank you so much! I was so worried! I really hope that is the case for this reading assignment or else I would have such a bad week.</p>
