How Grading works
To return to Courses I Teach - for other courses
The following applies to the 1-Credit courses and the Assignment portion of the 4-Credit courses, which typically have a two-part project covered on the course web page.
"Grading" is a fairly loose term used to describe the process designed to verify that each student has completed (or made a serious attempt to complete) each assigned exercise. In this class you will be working together in an iPeer "grading group" of 2-4 members to provide and receive timely, useful and constructive feedback on class assignments.
Module Assignment Grading Process
- Please submit each module's requirements as directed in the assignment to your iPeer(s). These will be due each Tuesday (by 11:59) pm during the week following that modules lectures. This means you typically have 10 days to complete each set of assignments.
- You can work out any exchange method between you. Do not cc the assignments to me.
- If you can’t meet the schedule, communicate with your iPeer. You don’t need to involve me. I leave it to you to not take advantage of each other.
- iPeer grading feedback is due Friday (by 11:59 pm) of the week it is submitted. This gives you 3 days to review and comment. Do not cc me.
- Assignment grading is always a big question source. Constructive comments and encouragement are FAR more important, but please include a numerical evaluation using 0-4 consistent with Grad School grading. I don’t want you to spend a lot of time on worrying about this – be subjective as in “this looks (or felt) like a 3.8 to me”.
At the end of the quarter.
- Email (not Canvas message) a grading summary (iPeer Assessment Form.xlsx linked Excel worksheet shown below) to me.
- Each iPeer group will submit 1 copy to me (cc'ing all iPeers) with all member's module scores.
- I will be looking to see that you were doing the work.
To receive credit.
