Individuals may take classes that are at their level or below.
PR stands for "Prerequisite," meaning the student must have completed and passed the listed class(es).
How are classes chosen?
At the beginning of the quarter, you update your application with the classes you wish your student to take. Your student can take a maximum of three (3) classes in an Otherworlde year. A year is three months of real life time. But be careful, make sure you have the time for those classes!
What is an assignment and how do I get it?
Assignments are posted by the teachers in the assignments journal every month, on the first of the month. The students taking that class are listed under the class, and you turn in your assignment by submitting it to the group, then posting it onto the journal with the name of the student and the class. The teacher will update the assignment list to show you finished your assignment. Grades are assigned at the end of the month, before the new assignment is posted.
How are assignments graded?
Each assignment is graded on a 0-5 scale.
0: The assignment was not turned in
1: The assignment is way below average. For writing it's probably around 100 words, or has a lot of spelling and grammar errors. For art, it's probably a sloppily done sketch or sketchy lineart.
2: The assignment is below average. For writing it's probably around 300 words, or has a lot of spelling and grammar errors. For art, maybe it's a sloppily made lineart with sloppy coloring, or a complex but still sketchy piece.
3: The assignment is about average. For writing it's probably around 500 words, maybe a spelling or grammar error here or there. For art, it's probably a nicely colored sketch, or a lineart that was colored sloppily.
4: The assignment is above average. For writing it's probably around 800 words, and it doesn't have grammar or spelling errors, as it's well polished. If it's art, it's probably simplistic but well done in nature, like a single character colored picture with no background.
5: The assignment went above and beyond. For writing that's about 1200 words with no errors. For art, it's a multiple character piece with nice lineart and coloring, or a single character picture with a nice background.
Please note that combining art and writing can boost your score. For example, you could do a single character nicely colored picture with no background with 500 words of polished story with no errors attached and probably get a five.
Remember that teachers differ. Some grade more harshly than others.
How many assignments do I have to finish?
Every class has three assignments. There is one assignment per month, per class. You must do two assignments per class, and those two assignments (or, out of three, your two highest scores) must equal 6.
For example, if your first assignment earns you a four, you can sloppily make the second to get a minimum of 2. That will give you 6 points, meaning you pass the class.
If you are taking three classes, you will be turning in three assignments per month for at least two months out of the three possible months available in the quarter.
Assignments earn extra experience based on the difficulty of the class.
Beginner Classes earn 1x experience points (see front group chart).
Intermediate Classes earn 1.25x experience points (see front group chart).
Advanced Classes earn 1.5x experience points (see front group chart).
Expert Classes earn 1.75x experience points (see front group chart).
How do I earn a degree?
You must meet the requirements of the Division, which is detailed in the Divison section. You can earn as many degrees as you want.
How does my student increase in level?
When your student joins Otherworlde, they will be a Beginner. After an Otherworlde year goes by (three months, coinciding with openings), and the student has passed two of their classes, they may start taking the next level classes and are promoted to the next level. Students do not necessarily have to advance to the next level, but they cannot take classes above their level, regardless of how long they have been in the academy.
Please note that a student must take and complete at least one class per Otherworlde year to remain in good standing. If they do not pass at least one class, they will be docked experience points and may be removed from the academy.
