The final exam can be a great platform for experimentation
Lots of great ideas for final evaluations but in the EMRN rubric (and elsewhere) how about substituting "Evidence (of learning)"for "work?"
Hello from two doors down (well not today). You and David are sure tempting me between these last two posts. I know what course I would try this final exam suggestion on if I were to get a wild hair. I do have some questions.
Say there's two or three or four key topics to assess them on. Would those point values (I know they're somewhat arbitrary) correspond to each topic and then get averaged or totaled? How do those points values get mapped to the letter grade system? Presumably, if instructors are trying this out now for the first time, their other assessments haven't been scored on that same scale, and they've already posted the point totals or weights on their syllabus. How do you suggest this get woven into that ship that's already well underway?
