Guidelines for self-assessments

 

While self-assessing and grading your work, you must have the following paragraph on top of the first page:

 

In assessing my work, I have not compromised my integrity and the integrity of the course. I followed the guidelines provided and assigned the points without exaggeration and without cheating. Not following the guidelines and cheating will result in a 'zero' on all related assignments in the cycle.

  1. You must follow these guidelines; otherwise, you will receive "0" as the grade for the whole assessment.
  2. You may not give yourself points if
    1. Your answer does not match my answer
    2. You have skipped a step
      1. You may give yourself the points up to the missed step
      2. You may not give yourself points for the missed step and the steps following it

Consequences

First infraction: "0" for the assessment and all prior assessments with the integrity statement (such as all BBR, HW, and Take-home tests).

Second infraction: "0" for the marking period and Integrity Violation

 

 

Guidelines for BBR

You must follow these guidelines; otherwise, you will receive "0" as the grade for the whole assessment including the test for the cycle.

  1. Review the material
    1. Using a black pen or pencil, take the test without the aid of anything
    2. Using the solutions available to you, grade yourself and assign yourself a black grade
  2. Review the whole material the test covers
    1. Using a blue pen, retake the test without the aid of anything. Do only the parts, you got wrong or got right by coincidence.
    2. Using the solutions available to you, grade yourself and assign yourself a blue grade
  3. Review the whole material the test covers
    1. Using a red pen, copy the remaining solutions. Do only the parts, you got wrong or got right by coincidence.
    2. Using the solutions available to you, grade yourself and assign yourself a red grade. Clearly, this part should be 100%

 

Guidelines for HW and grading in general

This is what we discussed and agreed to in class on 2013.09.19

The statement below is implicitly assumed on all self-graded assessments and all work turned in for grade:

"I followed the guidelines provided to me while completing this work.

I have completed the work with honesty and integrity without compromising the integrity of the course."
