This is the post for January 15, the last class day.
We have lots of options at this point, so choose whatever you need from the information below.
- You can complete whatever projects that you want to (only Project 4, OR Project 4 and Project 5).
- All remaining projects must be submitted by 11:59 PM on Saturday, 1/16.
- You do NOT have to tell me which option you are choosing. I will just go by whatever you have turned in by 11:59 PM Saturday.
- Please fill out the Student Perceptions of Teaching (SPOT) survey for this course. The feedback helps the department make important decisions about teaching methods, course content, and faculty promotion. Written comments help me decide what to keep or change the next time I teach the course.
If you are completing ONLY Project 4:
- Just ignore the final exam assignment (Project 5).
- Spend your remaining time refining your report for Project 4, which will be worth 35% of your course grade.
- Submit your project by 11:59 PM on 1/16, following these instructions.
- Check your course grade in Canvas after you receive an email from me that the grades have been submitted. Your grade in Canvas will be your grade in the course.
If you want to participate in the optional peer review for Project 4:
- By 6 PM today
Post your draft in the Optional Peer Review for Project 4 discussion.
- By noon on 01/16
Give feedback to the two classmates who are assigned to you, following the instructions on the course website.
- After noon on 01/16
Revise your draft based on the peer feedback you received, using the Canvas Documentation to find your peers’ feedback.
This peer review activity is completely optional and will not effect your grade in the course
If you are completing Project 4 AND Project 5:
- Submit Project 4 by 11:59 PM on 1/16, following these instructions. Project 4 is worth 30% of your course grade.
- Readings for Project 5
- The assignment for Project 5: Course Completion Report (the final exam).
- Information on progress and status reports (which are similar to a completion report) on pp. 302–311 in Markel.
- Self-Assessment Examples
- Work for Project 5
- Read the Project 5: Course Completion Report assignment (the final exam, worth 5% of your course grade), and begin gathering data on your work in the course by rereading your posts in the Discussions and your projects to identify your best work.
- Use the information in the textbook on progress and status reports as well as the self-assessment examples to help decide what information to include and how to present your performance.
- Submit Project 5 by 11:59 PM on 1/16, following these instructions.
- Watch for a message about your course grade. I will either send instructions on how to find your grade OR details on your grade using the messages system in Canvas (which the university has approved as a FERPA-compliant way to discuss grades).
