It is time to construct the final version of your grading criteria. We recommend that you use the following structure in your work. Note that you should present your work as a readable and coherent report, see below.
- Review your own submission 1 in the same way as you peer-reviewed two others’ submissions.
- Show your submission 1 to a student to get some student’s feedback on the ILOs and grading criteria.
- Consider all feedback you got.
- Modify your grading criteria using the feedback. We suggest that you should feel free when suggesting changes, so that you at this time do not have to be restricted by what your colleagues and director of study will accept.
- Add missing grading criteria and the form of assessment for each ILO. We recommend that you present this as a matrix (as in Viggo’s ADC example from meeting 1).
- For each assignment to be assessed, sketch how you will asses the students using the criteria. You may state operational grading criteria.
- Show how the assessment of the course will guarantee that each student who pass the course will fulfill all ILOs to the E level (pass) criteria.
- Construct a formula for combining the grades.
Write and submit a report of two parts. The first part should be a self-contained report in the form of a course memo, fulfilling the requirements of the KTH regulation on ILOs and grading criteria, hence including the following:
- the ILOs,
- the matrix of grading critera,
- the alignment between the assessments and the grading criteria, also showing that passing the assessments will guarantee fulfillment of the ILOs,
- the formula for combining the grades.
The second part should be a reflection:
- motivating your criteria,
- showing how you have considered the feedback from the peers and the student,
- reflecting on how you should use the grading criteria in your teaching to make the students familiar with what is expected of them,
- reflecting on the effects your formula for combining grades may have on the learning process.
- Before you submit, go through the grading criteria for LH216V and check that your report shows fulfillment of all of them.
Submit your report as a PDF document in Canvas. If you cannot see the submit button below, you probably need to login to Canvas using the key symbol in the upper left corner of the window.
We will grade the report according to the grading criteria (the ILOs) of LH216V and give you constructive feedback on your grading criteria in Canvas. At the third and final meeting, we will discuss your submitted grading critera. After this, you are welcome to revise your grading criteria again and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can include them on the web among the other examples of grading critera used at KTH.
