Assessment

Page history last edited by David Shutkin 9 years, 5 months ago

In each assignment, I am looking for evidence of thoughtful engagement and reflection on course readings, lectures, workshops and discussions. I cannot stress enough the significance of ALWAYS giving credit where credit is due. 

 

I have been developing a holistic assessment rubric that I prefer to the more technical rubrics included with most projects.  I intend to use the holistic rubric and welcome your input and discussion as I develop it further. 

         

Grading System

Students are evaluated by their retention of substantial information, insight regarding the significance of this information, ability to apply it to new situations, and ability to communicate the knowledge assimilated.

Attendance 

Attendance at every class is required. In the event that you are unable to attend class for a substantive reason, please contact me PRIOR to that class to arrange an excused absence. A pattern of unexcused absences will result in a pattern of reduced FINAL grades. (One grade for each unexcused absence, i.e. from A to B)

 

Policies on Grading

All assignments are required. I encourage you to discuss your assignments and your grades with me while the course is in progress.

 

Academic Honesty    

Students are expected to cite any resources that they use in the construction of any turned-in work. Print sources as well as electronic media must be cited. Any work submitted for evaluation must either be original work or cited work. Plagiarism is absolutely unacceptable. The University's policy regarding academic dishonesty as stated in the John Carroll University Undergraduate Bulletin will be adhered to.

 

Late Assignments

Submitting assignments after the assigned due date will reduce the grade for that assignment by one letter (i.e. from A to B). However, prior to due dates alternative arrangements can be made for late submissions. A final grade of "I" (incomplete) may be awarded upon request and pending approval.
