ENU 413X Project Grading Guide – D. Schubring 1 In the interest of reducing the length of project assignment documents and providing further clarity on grading procedures, this document covers how each component of a project is graded. For example, the assignment for an experimental design project may provide the following information: Peer review (10 points) Conformance to professional document standards (15 points) Quality of graphical presentation of information (15 points) Overall quality of the writing (20 points) Quality of analysis – error-free and complete (30 points) Ability of design to provide accurate estimates (25 points) Ability of design to provide estimates across the entire range of possible values (15 points) Justifications of costs for experiment (20 points) A typical project will consist of 5 different classes of grading items: Peer review Professional document standards Graphical presentation of information Writing quality Technical merits (typically 1/2 – 2/3 of the total points) How each class of grading items is evaluated is discussed below. With the exception of the peer review and the document standards, a rough guideline is that 60-65% is marginally acceptable, 75-80% is meeting expectations, and 90% is remarkably good. Scores above 90% are reserved for exceptional work. Note that scores are sometimes interpolated ( e.g. , contains characteristics of both a 70% and 80% design; graded 75%) are rounded to full points. 1 Peer Review You are required to send an evaluation of the total productivity of each of your group members to the instructor by the deadline indicated. The total productivities must add to exactly 100% and everyone’s productivity must be a whole number. These points are all-or-nothing. Typically, evaluations of 2 person groups out of the range of 40-60%, 3 person groups out of the range of 25-40%, and 4 person groups out of the range of 20-30% are grounds for grade adjustments. 2 Professional Document Standards This is the only item for which your grade starts at the highest value and works its way down. The following specific standards are enforced on all projects: Figures/tables must have numbers. Figures/tables must be referred to in the text by number (not “above”, “below”, etc.) Figures/tables must not appear before the first reference to them. Figures/tables must have a caption.

ENU 413X Project Grading Guide – D. Schubring 2 All running text should have the same font/spacing/justification, as should each level of heading. The use of Greek symbols and other mathematics in running text should not break line spacing. Doing so makes a professional document look rather like scratch paper for notes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
