As you know, part of the grading, as set out in the syllabus, is based on your assessment of the contribution each student made to the group work. Needless to say, I shall be asking for these assessments to be made confidentially. Here are the grading criteria:
Grading guidelines for group projects
A Showed leadership and initiative; attended all class work sessions and meetings, and initiated communications whenever necessary; brought top-level skills to bear on the project; was professional in working relations with colleagues and client.
B. Was not exactly a leader but was an enthusiastic participant; attended virtually all class sessions and meetings; worked diligently on the project; was professional in working relations with colleagues and client.
C: Showed no more than adequate participation in terms of contributing ideas; missed two or three class sessions and/or meetings; did little work on the project, showing at best modest ability; showed few signs of professionalism in working relations with colleagues and client.
D. Contributed few or no ideas of his/her own; missed more than three working sessions; did virtually nothing of any value for the project; was unprofessional in working relations with colleagues and client.
F. Failed to contribute anything of substance to the group’s work.
In the next 24 hours–in other words, by 10 a.m. on Wednesday, December 14th–consider the contributions made by the others in your group and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a letter grade and a sentence of explanation about each. If you forget to do this final piece of work it will affect your own grade.
