ASSESSMENT

ASSESSMENT: THE MAGICAL GRADING SYSTEM! TAKE THE MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR

There are three options:

1. Three interm objective in-term exams (minimum requirement to pass the course is a D minus. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!)

2. Comprehensive essays

3. Discussions and discussion quiz weighted 80%/20%

Extra credit--review essays on management cinematic case studies shown on Thursday evenings.

Because the subject matter of the in-term exams comprises the minimum factual content that students must master, students attaining less than 57% on the in-term exams fail the course. There are NO EXCEPTIONS to this rule.

Students who are dissatisfied with their in-term score may retake it during subsequent exam periods. The score will be the weighted average of the two scores. The better score will count triple.

1. In-term--SG, AE

2a. Comprehensive part 1--SM, GIM, In-class Films

2b. Comprehensive part 2--SG Chapter Goals

3. AE Discussions and endterm quiz on Discussions

Extra Credit up to a maximum of 100 points generally calculated at the rate of 5 points per hour of work. 10 points per 250-300 word page.

GRADES

The magical grading system weights your best score 50%, second best 30%, and worst 20%. This provides a strong incentive for improvement.

Weighted average scores:

4.00+ = A             3.67-3.99 = A-      
3.33-3.66 = B+        3.00-3.32 = B         2.67-2.99 = B- 
2.33-2.66 = C+        2.00-2.32 = C         1.67-1.99 = C- 
1.33-1.66 = D+        1.00-1.32 = D      
0.00-0.99 = F. 

The Mid-term and End-term exams are graded on a percentage basis:

a=90-100%; b=80-89%; c=70-79%; d=60-69%; f=0-59%.

The comprehensive essays and discussions are letter graded.

Here are some possible magical grading system combinations:

best middle worst final grade

AN EXAMPLE: A student attains a 4.1, 3.3, and a 2.1 on the three assignment. Note that it doesn't matter which of the three options. The only requirement is a passing grade of 57% on the objective in-term exams. Here is the calculation, highest x 50% --> 4.1 x 50 = 210 middle x 30% --> 3.3 x 30 = 99 lowest x 20% --> 2.1 x 20 = 42 TOTAL 351 This is a grade of B+ Students wanting a higher grade must do extra credit work. A extra 15 points would give the student an A-. An extra 49 points would secure an A. Students may do a maximum of 100 extra credit points. Consider this an "insurance policy". After all, it can raise your grade a full point!

EXTRA CREDIT ARTICLES worth Five Points Each 26,32,34,36,38,40,41 for completing the Test Your Knowledge Form.

To determine your assignment, you need to use your Banner ID number. For example, suppose your number was "452789". You use your last banner number (9) for discussions 1 & 2, your next to last banner number for discussions 3 & 4 (8), your third from last banner number (7) for discussions 5 & 6, and your fourth from last (6) for discussions 7 & 8. Your first name is "Peter" which has an odd number of letters. So, for discussion 1 & 2, you are "9 odd" and are a Blue Hen, for discussion 3 & 4, you are "8" and a Minuteman, for discussion 5 & 6, you are "7" and a Ram, for discussion 7, you are "2" and a Stag. (I hope this example doesn't cause gender anxiety in anyone! If you feel better you can be a Man Blue Hen, Lady Minuteman, Lady Ram, or Lady Stag? Don't ask about Lady Friars!!!!) After all this, your assignment is to read articles 2,9,14,16,24,27,33. Remember the Management principle --- KISS!

Discussions will be scheduled. After each discussion session, students will vote for the best team (other than their own) and select their best teammate. They accrue one point for attendance, one point for each teammate vote, two points if their team wins, and one point if their team places second. The instructor will assign a class grade after each discussion session. This will determine the average grade of the class. Student evaluations will determine each students grade relative to that average. The worst grade will be discarded from the evaluation.

For example, suppose the instructor assigns the CLASS grades of C, C+, B+, A for the sessions. This is a B average for the CLASS. A particular student receives 40 team and individual votes. In a 30 student class, the average student vote is 30 with a standard deviation of 10. Thus, the student's vote is one standard deviation above average raising the student's grade from a B to a B+. Absences--You will lose one point each unless you must submit an article review form for all absences. For each article review form submitted, you may take a 5 question short quiz to earn up to 4 points. An average student who participates in a 24 student session could expect to receive 4 points (1 point for the ballot, 1 point from teammates, and 2 points as a team member). You may take these quizzes in conjunction with the in-term and comprehensive essays.
