EDPSY 526, Spring 2006
This course is graded CR/NC: Credit requires a grade of 3.0 or above. My intent is for your course grade to represent the extent of your learning in the course. The grading policy is structured to support that learning.
Graded ProductsThematic Papers - 50%
Short thematic papers are a chance for you to synthesize important ideas from the readings with your own experiences as a researcher and/or practitioner. Your job is to develop a theme (position) while using ideas from the readings critically to support or challenge your own views. Thematic papers will be graded check/not-yet-check, using a checklist of criteria. You may revise and resubmit if you are not satisfied. Detailed instructions, criteria, scoring rubrics plus example papers can be found on the class website. If you decide to resubmit a thematic paper, you must attach the original submission and my comments to the revised version.
2 "checks" = 2.7, 3 "checks" = 4.0
Term Projects - 50%
Term projects are a chance for you to deepen your understanding of metacognition while exploring a problem of interest to you. You will turn in a prospectus, a rough draft, and a final draft, receiving feedback on all three submissions. For more information, click on the links below or in the navigation bar to the left.
#1 April 17 (weeks 1 & 2)
#2 May 1 (weeks 4 -5)
#3 May 22 (weeks 6 - 8, pick 2 weeks, but all 3 if you like; state which weeks)
