Please check the Canvas calendar for all due dates.
INDIVIDUAL Case Study Assignments
Case Study Issue Interest Survey (Canvas survey, see Canvas for due date)
You will find the “Case Study Issue Interest Survey" under the Case Study Assignments sub heading in the Modules tab. All students are required to complete the survey. (The individual final grade will be penalized 1 point for late, incomplete or missing survey results.)
Team Assessment of Contribution (Canvas survey, see Canvas for due date)
You will find the “Team Assessment of Contribution” survey under the Modules tab. Not graded, but all students are required to complete the survey. (The individual case study final grade will be penalized 1 point for late, incomplete or missing survey results.)
Case Study Q & A (Canvas Discussion Forum, see Canvas for due dates)
Each Case Study will be presented as a Q&A Discussion Forum. The Team that did the Case Study will be the Host of the forum and two other Teams will be assigned to participate as Audience members. Each student will participate in three Case Study Q&As (once as Host, twice as Audience). Participation in all three Discussion Forums is graded on an individual basis.
Each Discussion Forum is worth 3% of your course grade. Grading criteria are presented with each Discussion Forum.
TEAM Case Study Assignments
The Team will receive one grade for each Part of the Case Study. See Canvas for due dates. These grades will not be posted to the grade book.
After all parts of the Case Study are submitted, the Team will be given one total Case Study score. Each Part is weighted equally.
Scoring for each Part of the Case Study is based on:
35% Completeness (meeting requirements outlined in this lesson)
35% Level of research and quality of information (reasoning, supported with data, clearly stated assumptions)
30% Writing quality, organization, and presentation.
All sources and references MUST be identified and properly referenced. Failure to do so can result in a failing grade and other possible sanctions. See College of Earth, Mineral and Sciences Academic Integrity and Research Ethics.
After all parts of the Case Study are submitted, each member of the team will complete a team assessment survey of individual contributions by each team member.
Individual scores for the Case Study will be calculated as Team Score x Average Team Assessment of Contribution.
- this is me
- did not contribute (0%)
- did very little to contribute (50%)
- did far less than fair share (80%)
- did less than fair share (90%)
- did around fair share (100%)
- did more than fair share (110%)
- did MUCH more than fair share (120%)
See Canvas for complete assignment description. See the rubric for grading, and the Canvas or Google Calendar for due dates.
Depending on your level of contribution to the Case Study, your individual score may be the same as the Team Score, or it may be lower or higher (not to exceed 100 points).
The Team Case Study is worth 30% of your course grade.
