Introduction

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • A typical rubric in a hard copy format.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Repeat the procedure for the remaining group.

  • After each presentation, the instructors sent email notifications to the students.

  • Both instructors and students received the email notifications.


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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
