Introduction
  • Assessing marine engineering module becomes more challenging as differences arise from the gaps in experience and skills among academic staff and students.
  • They come from a different backgrounds in mechanical, electrical, naval architecture, marine and offshore engineering.
slide4

But the challenges can be successfully overcome through careful and thoughtful planning, using a rubric.

  • The rubric (Goodrich, 1996) is an authentic assessment tool used to assess students\' work.
  • It contains assessment criteria for assessing the students.
slide5

It is usually handed out before the assignment begins in order to get students to think about the criteria on which their works will be judged.

  • It encourages bilateral communication between the students and instructors.
  • We will cover how we applied an online rubric form at Newcastle University.
proposed methodology
Proposed Methodology
  • The rubric is a scoring guide which seeks to evaluate a student\'s performance based upon the sum of a full range of criteria rather than a single numerical score.
slide8

The rubric assessment was used for Marine Engineering Design module.

  • The rubric will be handed out to students before the assignment begins.
  • In this module, a group design project has to be completed within one semester.
slide9

This project constituted 40% of the total marks for the module.

  • The feedback to the students was structured in accordance with the rubric’s criteria.
  • Instructors had to complete the online rubric forms after each project presentation made by the students.
slide10

Instructors informed the students on how they had performed in the assessment.

  • When doing so, students should receive feedback so they can improve their performance next time
application software
Application Software
  • A software called Form Builder was used.
discussions
Discussions
  • The impacts were evaluated based upon the results from the project marks before and after the implementation.
  • As compared with the previous semester, the marks have improved.
  • The survey results also found that the students were satisfied with the online feedback channel.
slide17

In summary, the rubrics offer several common advantages. The rubric:

  • forces teachers to clarify his/her criteria in specific terms.
  • improves the consistency in evaluating the student works.
  • improves students’ performance by clearly showing the students how their works will be evaluated and what are expected.
conclusion
Conclusion
  • The online rubric assessment was proposed for assessing the Marine Engineering Design module at Newcastle University.
  • The survey results found that the students were satisfied with the feedback system.
slide19

The rubric allows the students to be involved through the online feedback from the instructors.

  • However, there is a need to assign more credit to these activities to improve engagement.
  • The workloads of the instructors need to be adjusted.
slide20

Although, the proposed method was mainly conducted in Newcastle University, it can be applied to others institutions.

  • But general guidance for the staff – they have to be trained in using these online tools prior to the implementation.
  • Further educational research into this area is recommended.
