ensure that you are learning the material covered in readings and during class and able to apply models and communicate your understanding. Note that some important material may be communicated in the midst of a case or exercise discussion, with or without slides – so you should be paying attention and taking notes. If there are readings due the day of a quiz, the content of those readings is fair game for the quiz. Quizzes will take place at the beginning of class. If you are late to class on the day of a quiz and miss the quiz, you will get an F for that quiz. 4. IP End-of-Term Teammate Assessment At the very end of the term, you will be asked to assess the performance of your IP teammates with regard to contributions to task work (i.e., pulling your weight in terms of hard direct contributions to team deliverables/not free riding) and teamwork (the “how” you are working together to complete your deliverables/give your presentation). Examples from the teamwork assessment include how well you/your teammates: a) carried out your designated teamwork role as specified in the team charter, b) otherwise acted to help ensure that the team followed the guidelines regarding decision-making and other areas that you set for yourselves in your team charter, c) encouraged desirable and discouraged undesirable team conflict throughout the semester, etc. Please see the associated document posted on our course’s Blackboard page for a list of all of the items on this assessment. 5

If you want to become a leader, first you must be competent, reliable, prepared and proactive in terms of taking on work. These are necessary baseline foundations. You do not have to be perfect on all teamwork items in order to get a high grade. Not all of us will do all of these things perfectly, nor would we want a team comprised of people that are all trying to do all of those things simultaneously. However, you should be using this semester to practice at least some of these behaviors that are instrumental in helping teams work together effectively. Your scores on the end-of-semester IP peer assessment items listed in the back of this syllabus will be averaged, minimum and maximum scores and their frequencies within each section will be reviewed and the full body of free-form comments will be considered to assess your performance practicing these skills as an IP team member this term. Again, you do not need all 7’s across the board on the teamwork portion of the assessment to get an A here , but I will be looking at the full body of evidence in the quantitative and qualitative feedback for
