The factors that I will consider as I read your submission – and weigh any participation grading adjustments – include: ● Are your observations consistent with the feedback that I’ve received from the rest of your team? ● Is your feedback surprising to me? Does it align with any observations that I’ve made this term? ● Is your review based on unbiased observations – measurable behaviors? o Does positive feedback detail extraordinary and high-value accomplishments? o Does negative feedback detail missed meetings, lack of preparation, low levels of engagement, and/or missed deadlines? o Am I reading hollow praise – or a rant that I should just chalk up to personality conflicts? ● Have you been proactive in dealing with team problems as they arise? o Perhaps you’ve stopped by to discuss options for dealing with a team problem. You’ve flagged it as a potential issue, and have taken appropriate action, but after some serious attempts at fixing things, the issue remains. o Or is this the first time that I’m hearing about any team discord? Some Additional Guidelines for Written Submissions: Style & Content Always use professional, logical, clear and precise language. Avoid praising or trashing people or companies with drama/hyperbole. Layout For all submissions, use paragraph form with clear intros/theses and conclusions. The use of bullets should be minimal – reserve bullets for executive summaries, or the emphasis of key points within your plans. For any multi-page assignments, it’s fine to have a section cross over to another page. Just be sure to use section headings and subheadings to guide the reader through the body of your submission. All illustrations/diagrams should be featured in the appendices of your formal mini b-plans. Format Page Numbers (Body): ## of (Total Pages). Page Numbers (Plan Appendices): EA-1,2,3; IA-1,2,3; Recs-1,2,3; etc. Binding: Use cover page and staple. Flat, transparent report covers are not required, but are permissible. Spiral binding may be used for larger submissions (business plans) . No 3-ring binders, folders or paperclips please. References Reference all primary and secondary data sources as directed.
