Name: Rubrics for Exams and Group Projects in Ethics
ID: m14059
Language: English (en)
Summary: A rubric is a device that serves two purposes. First, it presents to students the standards in terms of which they will be graded on some kind of writing activity whether it be an essay test or a formal written paper. Second, it is a grading tool that helps the instructor stay focused on the same set of standards when grading student essays. This module presents rubrics used in assessing Good Computing Reports, In-Depth Case Study Analyses, and Engineering Ethics Midterm Exams and Computer Ethics Midterm Essay Exams. Students will find these rubrics useful in studying for exams. Faculty members can use these rubrics as templates for developing rubrics of their own. This module is being developed as a part of an NSF-funded project, "Collaborative Development of Ethics Across the Curriculum Resources and Sharing of Best Practices," NSF SES 0551779.
