Grading

Last updated: Oct 19, 2020 at 11:46pm

Some components of your grade are individual, some are common to your team section, and others are shared by your entire team. The project workflow illustrates how and when a team's sections combine to make a team. In order to receive section and team-wide grade components, an individual must actively contribute to the milestone.

*Individual team instructors may assign grades to students by task force instead of assigning the same grade to the entire section.


Individual team instructors assign grades to students in their section. All instructors work in close communication with each other—results after each milestone are discussed to ensure that grading is equitable between sections within a team, and between teams.

Additionally, teams will obtain design feedback from several other course staff after each major project milestones. Also, after each milestone, this collective feedback is discussed in lecture since the primary purpose of reviews is to help improve the projects and to facilitate a discussion of what approaches worked well and what can be improved upon.
