 +====== Task 3 ======
 +__**Society vs. individual. Select one community/​society/​group where you belong and reflect the societal pressures from society and individual perspectives. Point here is to analyze you perception of these pressures to both directions.**__
 +
 +Group: Group for course Social Sustainability
 +
 +I chose our group which we got in a course Social Sustainability,​ where we have to do case report study in groups of 4-5 people. Groups were formed through moodle, before course started and people in our group did not know eachother. ​
 +
 +Societal pressures in our group come mostly from the institutional pressures. This is because we did not know eachother before our group was formed and have very little interaction apart from this task that was given to us, therefore we don't have as strong reputational or moral pressures driving us to do work together or performing better than we have to to pass the course. ​
 +
 +On the other hand certain institutional pressures were put on us as a group (by our group) when we got together to write and discuss case exercise plan. We divided our task between members of the group and wrote a plan which states who is responsible for which part of the task. So in case someone won't do their work or does it poorly, the lecturer can see who was responsible for that part.
 +
 +
 +====== Task 4 ======
 +__**Create 4 exam questions representing the course contents. Explain why the question is good.**__
 +
 +**Question 1:** 
 +If there is nothing to hide, can you still hide it and why should you care? (Answer in the context of privacy and nothing-to-hide argument)
 +
 +//Question should force answerer to reflect on what has he learned by reading about nothing-to-hide argument. Answers to this question might differ hugely from person to person, but generally answer should include reasons to care about privacy, and dangers of information gathering and use.//
 +
 +
 +**Question 2:**
 +What is exclusionary rule, why does it exist and what problems it has? Should it stay?
 +
 +//This question is pretty straightforward,​ but important. Answerer has to know about exclusionary rule and list some reasons for why it's in use, while also listing some problems that it causes (like letting criminals go unpunished). Second part of the question is simply to see whether the answerer is against this rule or not, which gives context for the first part of the question.//
 +
 +
 +**Question 3:**
 +Why do we have societal pressures? What do they have to do with trust?
 +
 +//Question is good because it requires the answerer to know why do we have societal pressures in the first place. Furthermore to answer this question answerer has to understand what are societal pressures to begin with. Reader should also understand the importance of trust and how it has been major driver for coming up with institutional pressures and security systems.//
 +
 +
 +**Question 4:**
 +What types of societal pressures can be identified in our modern day society and how has the growing use of internet and social media affect these?
 +
 +//Question requires knowledge about types of pressures and how are they perceived in our current society. The part about internet and social media should force answerer to think how internet has changed the way societal pressures have been affected as the amount of people we interact with has grown substantially.//​
