common assessment mechanisms
Common Assessment Mechanisms
  • Course-wide
    • WPRs (Exams)
    • TEEs (Finals)
    • Projects
    • Course-specific topical exams (FCE, FDE, FIE…)
  • Instructor-specific
    • Quizzes
    • Homework
    • Presentations
    • Class preparation
    • Subjective grade*
      • 10% of instructor points
      • Think twice before doing this at all. Are you assessing understanding or rewarding extroversion (or mimicry)?
  • Sample point
  • allocation
  • (MA104)
what is holistic grading

What is holistic grading?

Determination of the overall quality of a piece of work or an endeavor by considering various aspects or components of the work without marking or tallying them.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of holistic grading

  • What are some advantages to holistic grading?
    • Analytic rubrics can be too prescriptive (in either direction)
    • Allows time to focus on feedback/comments (quick)
  • What are some disadvantages to holistic grading?
    • Accepts a certain level of imprecision
  • What are some caveats…?
    • Must communicate standards
    • Calibration still necessary
accuracy vs precision
Accuracy vs. Precision
  • What is the difference between accuracy and precision?
  • What does this mean with respect to grading?
a rubric
A rubric
  • A scoring guide to evaluate a student’s performance based on established criteria.

    • Chips
    • Texture
    • Color
    • Taste
    • Flavor
a rubric1
A rubric

4- Delicious

Chip in every bite, chewy, golden brown, rich, creamy, high-fat flavor

3 – Good

75% bites have chips, chewy in the middle, but crisp on edges, a little too brown or undercooked

Store bought quality, medium fat content

2 – Needs Improvement

50% bites have chips, too crispy or too under cooked, tasteless, low-fat content

1- Poor

Too few chips, texture resembles dog biscuit, burned, chalky non-fat contents

a rubric in the making
A rubric in the making
  • Focused holistic grading
    • Work exceeds standard, meets the required standard,
    • falls just short of the standard, does not meet the standard
  • Analytic holistic grading
    • Divided by performance area
    • Correctness, organization, style, substance
  • Major , Minor Errors
problem specific holistic rubric ma104 wpr 3 2012
Problem-specific Holistic RubricMA104 WPR#3, 2012
  • Sample procedure within MA104
  • For A, B, or C-level work, instructor identifies the mistake(s) for the student
  • For D or F-level work, instructor also refers the student to the text for a similar problem, such as
  • “See Example #4, pg. 948.”
  • in order to help the cadet remediate conceptual or procedural gaps.
  • Caveat
  • Cadets often solve (or approximate solutions to) problems in unexpected and completely valid ways! Keep your eyes (and your mind) open!!

* Caution: don’t confuse humor with beliefs.
